Nice price for a well built laptop. Far more robust than the usual stuff posted.

not surprisingly, the manufacturers that sell the most units have the most issues and the cheaper units encounter more issues than the more expensive units.

nowhere does it state that there is /1000 unit comparison or such. this says nothing.

wouldnt pay over £260 for this.

I am sorry I am going to vote this cold as I have found - and will possibly be purchasing - the same laptop @ 299


um, the game in these parts is that if you have found the same item on sale for less one generally states the retailer/website etc.
#13
Unless you need/want the build quality associated with a ThinkPad (this isn't really what I'd consider a "proper" ThinkPad though), then you'd be better off with a normal consumer laptop with one of the new Core i3 chips - several deals in the last few weeks that are at this price and indeed a bit cheaper. This tech is a bit out of date now so not a purchase I'd recommend for most people.
#14
is this as solid as the old T42s, with magnesium cases and stuff ? or is lenovo just cheapo plastic these days?
#15
Ooooo.

Firewire. That was the selling point for me

It says "failure rate" meaning it has been adjusted somwhere for the amount each manufacturer sells.

No (Lenovo do still sell T series ThinkPads that are equivalent - but this is a 'budget' ThinkPad). Hence my comment earlier re it not being a proper ThinkPad :)

I was drawn to this as I have a ThinkPad T410 (costing will over a grand). I suspect a £300 Lenovo is very different though, and the reviews here suggest it might not be great: http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/lenovo-thinkpad-sl510/4852-3121_7-33776133-3.html?tag=userReviews;page

On the plus side, I want something around this price with a matte screen and that seems a rare feature these days.

Looks good for my needs, I just wished they would squeeze in a numberpad in the keyboard instead of the thick bezel with the buttons on the sides.

You are correct in thinking the "T" range and "SL" range are of different quality and aimed at a different market. But, considering a similarly specced "T" will be 3 or 4 times as expensive as it's "SL" equivalent, they are very good value for money.
Also, it's far better built than most (but no more expensive). I won't name names....
#21
If anyone is looking at this because they want a matte screen, then I'd be interested in hearing about any other models you're shortlisting. Browsing shop displays, there's virtually nothing without horrible reflective glossy displays these days...
