Lenovo ThinkPad SL410: a review of this versatile laptop

The first time we heard about the Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 laptop.

We only heard good things. And we know that Lenovo and its ThinkPad series are very active competitors in the laptop industry. However, we still feel the need to have the latest products in our hands and try them for ourselves. It is another experience to try everything the manufacturer says about your laptop. Regarding the Lenovo ThinkPad SL410, we are glad we were able to try this wonderful laptop. We were fascinated with its beauty and elegant design, not to mention the exemplary way it behaved in all our tests. But enough talk and more action! Let’s see your scores!

We begin our tests with the central processing unit, the most important hardware component of the Lenovo ThinkPad SL410. Although not the most powerful in its class, the Intel Celeron T3100 processor operates at a reasonable speed of 1.9 GHz, has an 800 MHz front bus and a 1 MB L2 cache. It worked very well during our tests and we began to wonder why. Later we discovered that RAM was helping her a lot. However, we gave the processor a good score of 8 points out of 10. Now we are going to test the memory. 2 GB of powerful random access memory (RAM) DDR3 PC3 8500 operating at a frequency of 1067 MHz, a real blow to the competitors of the Lenovo ThinkPad SL410. We are happy to give RAM 10 out of 10 points.

Then,

it was time to test the graphics processing unit (also known as GPU). A good Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 MHD manages to produce fairly clear and crisp graphics on the small 14-inch HD screen. The screen uses VibrantView technology to improve image quality. However, we cannot assign more than 8 points to both the video card and the graphics processing unit due to its below-average performance. Compared to other similar laptops, the Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 is easy to beat in the video and screen sections.

Another hardware defect of the Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 is the small 160 GB hard drive. And not only is it small for the current multimedia file size (HD and Bluray), but it also works at low speed 5400 rotations per minute. This affects the overall agility of the laptop and slows it down significantly. We cannot grant the hard disk more than 6 points out of a maximum of 10.
