Checked - no malware found or additional root certificates. Cons: - Windows license was tied to the equipment manufacturer and the Lenovo service tag had been removed. This makes getting drivers and software much more difficult. This raises questions about the security of the network which was used to refurbish the system - Screws missing from the drive bay. Overall Review: Overall an OK product but I would take the time to double-check everything before doing anything confidential or business related on systems refurbished by this company.
Cons: Broken keyboard and track pad rendering the device unusable - I couldn't even use the bios. Webcam was taped over with electrical tape. Pros: - Fast, no bloatware - Might be able to resell it on Craigslist for a similar price.
Cons: - I don't think they actually refurbished anything, the battery pack is flimsy and feels like it's going to fall off, the power button touch is off and doesn't depress, and the keyboard just straight up doesn't work unless you bang it down.

Yielding doesn't become evident even under high pressure at all ; however the noise level could be a bit lower.
The user is sufficiently compensated for this by an impression of an accurate, mechanical quality with every pressed key. Also unusual for a few, but a welcome tradition for the series, is the red trackpoint in the keyboard's lower center. After some getting used to, the user won't want to live without it because it allows just as a precise as fast control of the mouse cursor.
Lenovo has given the trackpoint two dedicated mouse keys and a mouse wheel replacement located directly beneath the space bar. Thus, the user doesn't have to stretch his fingers up to the touchpad's keys beneath it. The click noise is very pleasant and quiet without lacking precision.
The touchpad's surface has a rough and distinctly different feel than the rest of the surrounding case. The finger glides pleasantly and smoothly over it and can control the mouse cursor with great accuracy. Multitouch gestures are supported, but it lessens the space on the already small touchpad gets even more. The corresponding buttons do their job quietly and reliably. However, they couldn't quite keep up with the quality of the other input devices and make a somewhat flimsy impression.
Both inputs can also be used simultaneously. The format of the Ts' predecessor had to make way for a wider aspect ratio. Consequently, the former resolution of x has increased to x pixels. Together with a diagonal of Unfortunately, the screen's measured rates aren't very impressive. Despite a good and even brightness of averagely The reason for this is the high black value of 1. The low viewing angle stability is also on a level that seems inappropriate for this price range. While there is at least a certain amount of leniency for the viewer on the horizontal plane, deviations of only a few degrees lead to clear image distortions vertically.
Unfortunately, the Ts isn't an isolated case. Regardless of the partly only average results, the notebook can also be used outdoors without problems because of the matt screen surface and strong backlight. Although we would have also liked to see a screen with higher contrasts, the displayed content nevertheless remains legible even in direct sunlight. Finally, we look at the ThinkPad's color reproduction. Thus, a higher quality, external monitor should be connected over the available display port for professional image editing.
As the top model of the series, our test device is equipped with a Core iM which is currently the fastest mobile dual core CPU on the market. Thanks to SMT Technology, every core can process two threads at the same time. The processor, manufactured in a 32nm process, is based on the latest Sandy Bridge architecture and has a base clock of 2.
It can be increased up to 3. The QM67 chipset , which also supports the processor-embedded HD Graphics , is on the mainboard. It is enabled during an operation using Optimus when needed. Lenovo has given the Ts only one RAM module with a capacity of 4 gigabyte. Consequently, the processor also only has a single-channel memory bus available. Users, who need a larger RAM capacity and want to tickle out even the last percent of performance from the laptop, can retrofit another module in the second slot.
However, the ThinkPad wasn't noticeably slowed down by the lack of dual-channel operation in our benchmarks. The highlight of all configuration features is undoubtedly the big gigabyte SSD from Intel. It promises a significant performance increase in the system benchmarks. We will examine to what extent the swift memory unit is noticeable in practical use. Thanks to the generous hardware configuration, the Ts' performance rates are convincing. We determined the processor's single thread performance with Cinebench R Our Ts has to admit defeat to the quad core competitors in the Multithreading Test of Cinebench R This disadvantage however only has a negative effect when highly parallel and extremely CPU-heavy applications have to be processed.
Beyond that, only the Dell Latitude E is available with a quad core among the immediate opponents in the 14 inch sector. It is automatically enabled in graphics load thanks to Optimus Technology. Benchmarks concerning the Intel HD Graphics integrated in the processor can be found in our database. As expected, the card places itself approximately on the level of the identically clocked GeForce GT M and reaches points in 3DMark We could determine points in the performance preset with the successor, 3DMark Vantage.
Is this enough to also render newer games smoothly? The answer is a clear "yes and no". The demo version of newly released-building strategy game Anno , used in the test, was only smoothly displayed in x pixels and low details with We could select medium or high details in older or less demanding games, like Fifa 12 , but gamers won't be satisfied with the Ts' graphics performance. This shortcoming won't likely be as devastating for the target group. The low raw performance in the case of the NVS M can only be compensated to an extent as can be seen in our very demanding benchmark, SPECviewperf Even some gaming notebooks, like the Samsung G7A , don't manage that.
Only larger laptops with a quad core processor and a high-end GPU can achieve better results here. The drive delivers an excellent presentation with sequential transfer rates of It can also excel with SSD-typical access speeds of 0. However, the solid state drives from Intel are deemed to be particularly reliable and are therefore an appropriate choice for the business laptop. Lenovo has branched off almost 16 gigabyte from the total capacity of gigabyte for the recovery partition.
The remainder is available for the operating system and other applications on a shared drive. The data memory's speed is already impressing when the preinstalled Windows 7 Professional as the 64bit version is booted: The system is ready for use in less than 30 seconds after pressing the power button. Program installations and starts are accelerated significantly compared with a conventional hard disk. Moreover, no noise is generated and it has a lower power consumption.
The user however has to accept a smaller capacity and a higher price in return. ThinkPad users have high demands in an escort for everyday business regarding the noise of their work device. The fan of the Ts is usually deactivated in idle and light office tasks.
Consequently, the notebook works absolutely noiselessly thanks to the SSD drive. Unfortunately, this condition doesn't last very long when the hardware is loaded a bit more, for example by a flash video. Despite uncritical temperature rates, the fan is turned on after a few seconds. It rotates fairly quietly and consistently, but it hums along audibly anyway.
On the other hand, the ThinkPad is mostly unobtrusive during full load. We couldn't measure more than Up until now, hardly a comparable device remained similarly quiet during this load. The temperatures of case and hardware reflect the result of our noise measurements. The notebook hardly gets lukewarm even directly at the vent. However, no stability issues developed in our multi-hour stress test and the processor only throttled marginally from 2. The processor and graphics card remained a lot cooler in a realistic load induced by Cinebench or Anno Consequently, the device's cooling capacity should also be suitable for a warm summer.
The Ts has two small stereo speakers , which are hidden behind a lattice on the keyboard's left and right. Not much has changed in regards to the mediocre sound quality of other ThinkPad range models. Midranges could already only be played insufficiently from the small speakers, and we didn't notice any basses. Speech is rendered somewhat tinny, but intelligibly and without distortions providing the user doesn't exceed a low volume. Otherwise it is advisable to connect an additional sound system using the headphone out, which succeeded with good quality in the test.
The ThinkPad Ts' power consumption isn't conspicuous. The power requirement clearly increases in full load. We could measure a maximum of In view of the installed hardware and the only marginal throttling, it's a good rate. The Dell Latitude , which was even more energy efficient in idle, consumed a bit more despite a weaker processor in this case The included 90 watt power adapter has a sufficient capacity to charge the battery even during load.
The 6 cell battery now only has a capacity of 44 Wh due to the Ts' slim case, while the T had 57 Wh. The laptop managed a battery runtime of over 6 hours in the Battery Eater Reader's test, which simulates the notebook's idle mode in minimum brightness. So about 2 hours more than the previous Ts. Surfing via WLAN also proves that the new Sandy Bridge range is more energy efficient than the former Arrandale processor with a battery life of almost 4 hours.
The Ts can't hide its powerful hardware and had to give up after 42 minutes in load. Lenovo hasn't really launched a new product onto the market with the Ts. No matter if it's the classic ThinkPad case design, the excellent input devices or the installed hardware, we have seen almost all of these model characteristics in the sister model, T , or the previous Ts.
Nevertheless, the Ts occupies a market niche that is supposed to especially address business customers with its combination of high performance components and high mobility. The manufacturing quality and case stability is high-end, but is surpassed by a few competitors, such as the HP EliteBook p. We noticed room for improvement in the fan management's fine-tuning and the built-in screen. The latter is suitable for outdoor use due to its matt surface and good brightness, but is very viewing angle dependent and has a disappointing black value.
It can achieve a battery life of up to 12 hours due to an optional 9 cell battery. Dear Lenovo, a fine-tuning of the fan management doesn't have anything to do with witchcraft. The ThinkPad Ts is mainly to convince business customers of its advantages as a powerful and yet portable companion.
