Review 1 for ThinkPad W520 Top Rated
Date:March 11, 2012
"This is by far one of the best purchases I have made. I chose Lenovo after I read many reviews complimenting this company for durable and powerful laptops. As a student who spends a lot of time researching and traveling, I needed a sturdy and durable laptop which was powerful enough to handle the amounts of research I was doing and also be able to handle constant travel via airplane, bus and you name it. I bought the W520 with an i7 processor 8 GB RAM and a 500 GB harddrive. When I placed my order, I was going to start traveling soon after and customer service was able to help me get my customized laptop from Shanghai to the States within 2 weeks. Excellent service! Now, after using this laptop for 8 months I can provide the following with confidence:
Pros: Durable, powerful, travel-friendly, keyboard is the perfect size, battery life is 7-11 hours depending on settings, easy to use, pre-installed programs and features are excellent and useful unlike laptops from other companies, color display on screen is vivid, anti-glare screen so it's easy to use outside and in different lighting, it's a very very quiet machine, time between pressing the power button and opening a browser is less than 30 seconds.
Cons: Black design is prone to fingerprints and sometimes difficult to wipe down, and no number key pad.
This is not a shiny, glittering laptop for showing-off. It's a quality built machine made to be used extensively and it can sure handle anything. I watch my colleagues struggle with their laptops when it comes to extensive use and traveling, and though theirs look silver and sleek, it's obvious that my Lenovo W520 out-performs them all."

Date:July 9, 2012
Cons: Weight, Build Quality, Durability, Included Software, overheats, power adapter is a super brick
"Well totally dissapointed by this notebook. Had purchased it for playing games and also coding. Will point out what i dont like: 1. It OVERHEATS: It has a monster grapphic card and a CPU but the intelligent designers forgot to use 2 fans(unlike in many similar counterparts). So whenever i want to play a game on it. The thing overheats. 2. BULKY Poweradapter: Its also referred to as BRICK on many forums. Its around 1-2 kg. 3. Speakers are pretty bad: are not at all loud for the price tag it has 4. Tooooo BULKY: But thats all right if it didnt over heat...
Finally i wont suggest this notebook at all because it cannot handle heavy graphics etc due to overheating. So there is no point of buying such an expensive and heavy notebook if u are using it only for emails."
