Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T520i

83% Lenovo ThinkPad T520i review
Source: PC Pro English
Still, six hours of battery life and fair performance are complemented by the tremendous build quality, to make the Lenovo ThinkPad T520i a solid all-round business laptop. Budget dictates it isn’t the best-equipped machine on the inside, but it can be upgraded to be, and its reliability and design make it an attractive alternative to the excellent Sony VAIO S.
