Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 (NT92NGE)
Source: Bright Hub
A look at the design, specifications and features of the Lenovo T410 laptop; discussing the casing and hardware features plus available ports and expansions. Even though there are vast improvements with this model, it still remains a far cry from state of the art technology. It is great to see what could be the end of the old battery design yet areas such as screen size, general weight and girth have huge room for improvement.

You have to hand it to Lenovo. While other vendors chase the latest laptop tastes and trends--Imprint finishes! Chrome edges! Brushed aluminum! A rainbow of color options!--Lenovo has kept the venerable ThinkPad's visage largely unchanged from the days of IBM.
It costs a bit more than competing models, but the Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2522 offers a modern Core i5-based configuration inside a typical, rock-solid ThinkPad design.
