Not up to Thinkpad reputation

Date:March 9, 2012
"Not as good as my previous Thinkpads. Too much plastic and flimsy feel. It was a little better priced than usual so I guess that counts. But I expected a rugged and high quality Thinkpad business class laptop and it's feels closer to the consumer version Ideapad."

More consumer, not business quality, than expected

Date:March 9, 2012
"Have had many Thinkpads and expected this one to have same 'feel' but was dissapointed. Its an OK laptop but 1) has more of a plasticy feel than I was expecting 2) the perfomance with the i5 processor and Windows7 was ok, but does not appreciably better than my 3 yo R61i Thinkpad and 3) I also use a Dell Lattitude E6410 and a Mac Air and both feel significantly higher quality.
Again, the T520 is ok, just not up to my expectations for a business Thinkpad."

Outstanding Machine

Date:March 7, 2012
"I've been using computers for almost 20 years, and I'm always looking for a computer that's
1) Powerful
2) Well-built
3) Easy to use
4) Helpful
The ThinkPad series is all of these. I'm very impressed.
The Lenovo ThinkVantage suite is by far the most helpful pre-installed software package I've seen. I've used other brands and usually end up removing the pre-installed software, however this one looks like it's staying. The options for battery usage, cooling, sleep, and screen settings are way more in depth than what comes standard with the OS.
On top of that, the ability to use the TrackPoint or the touchpad separately or together is a nice touch. I actually prefer the trackpoint, and to be able to quickly disable the touchpad makes it a lot easier to avoid mistakes when moving files.
I expect this laptop to last for at least 5 years, maybe longer, as it seems to be built solid.
Overall, the T520 is an outstanding machine and I would highly recommend it, especially when considering the value added with the Lenovo software and build quality."
