Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T410s - 2924-9HG
Two for one. Innovations don't even stop before the T410s. In this review, we'll devote ourselves to the Optimus upgrade and report about its impact in detail. Can the slim 14 incher benefit from the dual GPU solution?

Configuring this system on Lenovo's web site takes the price of our review unit to $1779, before taxes and shipping. We also found the T410s with the same specs on Amazon for about $1500. Taking form factor, performance, and build quality into consideration, we feel the asking price represents a good value. Let's look at a couple of comparable notebooks to the ThinkPad T410s. After configuring a 14" HP EliteBook 8440p with the same components found on our review model, it rang in at $1912.

With enough speed to be your primary computer for years to come, the ThinkPad T410s with Nvidia Optimus graphics and solid state drive raises the bar for mobile performance. And, if you can afford to attach three monitors simultaneously, this notebook can seriously boost your productivity. The 3.8-pound machine also boasts supreme comfort, plus the durability and security business users expect from a ThinkPad. Just make sure you invest in the three-cell battery, which adds a couple of hours of juice while bringing the price of this portable powerhouse to a steep but reasonable $1,899. While we prefer the Sony VAIO Z in this weight class because it offers an even higher resolution 1600 x 900 display (which sits lower for easier airline travel) and backlit keyboard, the T410s is a formidable business machine that will plow through your to-do list like nobody's business.

NVIDIA NVS 3100M: Business graphics card that is based on the GT218 core (e.g. GeForce 305 / 310M) but with drivers that are optimized for stability and compatibility in business applications).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i5-580M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks also between 2.67-3.33 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact.
In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
