Customer Reviews for ThinkPad L440
Review 1 for ThinkPad L440
Date:June 15, 2014
"After finally needing to upgrade computers, I decided to invest in a Lenovo. I had heard of their fantastic reliability for the longest time, and knew that it would be a good purchase. Out of the box, everything was great. With i7 and the 8 gigs of RAM, the thing runs like a dream. The only set back is, like everyone else has said, the trackpad. It was something that didn't need to be fixed. I have tried so hard to like it, but it is way too buggy. Right click is impossible to find when you want it, and appears when you don't. At the end of the day, it is a great computer with everything I need for college. I guess I will just have to get a USB mouse."
"This is a replacement for my beloved T61. The lcd died after 7+ years. Anyway, this L440 is not quite as nice as the old T61, which had a magnesium top, better touchpad, and overall better fit,finish,and build quality. However, this L440 is also about $400 less expensive and should do what I need a laptop for."
"This laptop exceeded my expectations. The keyboard is simply one of the best out there. The key travel is extremely generous and really fun to type on. Performance wise, I equipped my laptop with the 4700-MQ and it handles everything perfectly. But, I still found the laptop to be quiet and cool (Never passed 50C. Onto the hotly controversial Touchpad, I don't see a problem with it. In fact, I prefer it over the old ones. Its big, smooth, quiet, and perfect for me. I can use it for hours without feeling the need to get a mouse. Finally, the battery life is wonderful. with the 9cell battery, I get an average of 9-12 hours usage with 10/15 on brightness. Overall, a perfect laptop for students or offices."
"We run a IT department that has always provided IBM/lenovo Laptops and Desktops to our business. This year we were asked to find a model with a lower price point that the T-Series. We have been reviewing the L440. For its price I thought it held up well against the T440u. That being said the biggest complaint is no caps-lock light on the keyboard. The temp indicator on the screen did not seem to cut it with the evaluator group. It's clear that it will last as long as a T-Series but we will be giving them a try for out less mobile users."
The pointing device driver is flawed and freezes every time close the lid. There is no way to recover, and to make matters worse the Function buttons are not functioning because some geek thinks that it is more important to turn the microphone on and off than to update a web site, and that off cause I do not want to use the ALT + F4 shortcut when all the applications need to be closed because of the bloody mouse driver.
I have no problem with the computer performance, but at the moment it is a lousy buy. The whole mouse/mouse pad is of poor quality.
Cabinet and screen, build is what it is - black plastic/low cost."
