A Unique Specimen.The L-series is a brand-new addition to the Lenovo Thinkpad notebook portfolio. Apart from the previously tested L512 there is also a more compact 14-incher with the designation L412. Being similarly equipped as its brother, it should score similarly in the mobility department.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L412 could well meet your needs, and if it does then the green credentials could give it the edge over whatever else is on your shortlist. Note, though, that the base specification might require tweaking before you can turn the ThinkPad L412 into the laptop of your dreams.

While the ThinkPad L412 may lack the wow factor of rival corporate machines like Sony's VAIO Z-Series, its stunning usability, ample power and commendable green credentials easily compensate. All in all, this is another success for Lenovo and a great business machine.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L412's only real drawback appears to be the keyboard, which is so loud that you should really think twice about toting this laptop to conferences and meetings. Other than that annoyance, however, the L412 delivers- it's quick, sturdy, and professional-looking, and even has decent multimedia playback for those long business trips.

In reviewing the ThinkPad L412, we couldn't help feeling that while there wasn't much one could say is wrong with it, neither was there much to make it stand out from the bunch. It's not the most portable 14-inch notebook we've come across, but it isn't the bulkiest, either. And if the L412 isn't the most fully featured notebook we've reviewed, neither is it the least.

An inexpensive alternative to the ThinkPad T series, the L412 has more than enough power for students or workers who are looking for the comfort and reliability of a Lenovo system, but desire something more economical. While we wish its battery life was a bit longer, the L412 has plenty of power for everyday office or classroom tasks, and its security and durability is on a par with more expensive systems. For less than $900, the L412 delivers plenty of value.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.34 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
