After reading the reviews on this computer, I just want to say that, compared to other laptops from various manufacturers (Apple, HP, Dell, etc.), this computer is by far the most well built computer I have ever come across. I have taken this computer to school with me EVERYDAY for the last 3+ years and not yet has it slowed down, even by the tiniest bit. I've never had any hardware or software problems nor any of the problems that people seem to be complaining about. (FYI-If you treat any computer like a piece of meat, it will break, regardless of who made it). I just wanted to write a positive review about this computer because I am still very happy with its performance (especially being 3+ years old) and do not intend on buying another laptop anytime soon.

I have had my T500 for 3+ years. It has performed flawlessly. The other posters here are obviously computer illiterate. Most of their problems stem from the fact that they don't know how to use a laptop nor the software. When I had a question for Lenovo Tech, I got through almost immediately and had my question answered. I would suggest that te other unhappy Lenovo users that posted here go back to a Corona typewriter, save yourself some grief.

Beware!
The description showed very good condition..but it's horrible. The frame near the DVD box is burnt. The frame is extremely loose. Gap exxists between frame components ..completely opposite to what has been declared.
Don't buy from this seller.

I am a college professor and have generally been happy with the computer. All that changed when I wanted to show a DVD to my class. On the computer screen it was great. But when hooked up to a projector (or even other monitor) it gave a copyright error and shut down. The computer is running XP BUT IT IS NOT AN XP ISSUE. It is a Lenovo issue after I did a little searching on the web. This is a major complaint that they will have to fix.

The only way around this is to extend the computer to two screens, reconfigure the size and I have other issues from that. Ergo there are better options out there for the price.

On the positive side the battery life is tremendous.
