My suggestion to someone planning to buy a W540 is to physically touch one first. I would have returned my W540 but I blame myself not Lenovo for my disappointment and I procrastinated beyond my 30 day window. I should have read ALL the reviews and found one to touch. My expectation of the machine was a Core I5 T410 on steroids which it is not. It processes like a T410 on steroids but it is a tin can as compared to a T410. I could have bought another brand for half the price with equal or better processing. All the little icon lights that show wifi, Bluetooth, charging, read/write, etc. are gone; all of them. All the buttons are gone; speaker, microphone, and even the blue Thinkvantage button. The charger could be used for a weapon. Any weight saved by making the computer body cheaper is more than offset by the brick of a charger. The keyboard is nothing like the old Think-pad. The F keys will drive you to drink, they depict the Fn function, which is primary, and the F# is so small you need a magnifying glass to see it. The key board flexes especially if you hit a key too hard and the finish on the keys picks up hand oils making it look and feel greasy. The feel of the keys and their shape is not the legendary ThinkPad series keyboard. The body is not like a T410 as it too feels cheap and there is no cover latch. I really don't see much difference between this and a Core I7 in an E, G or Z series that cost significantly less even after you customize them!!! The touch-pad reacts strangely, thankfully you can turn it off. Everything that made a Lenovo worth the extra money is gone. My old T410 is sitting right next to my new W540 as I type this and I find myself longing for my old friend.Read more ›
+ Auto calibration is an interesting feature.
+ Nice solid full size keyboard.
+ Nice and fast. but that is an Intel feature.
+ Runs cool compared to AMD chips.
+ Nice bright screen, but dull for photography.
- Photoshop CS works, but unuseable on IPS screen. Adobe is aware and working on a fix.
+ Lightroom CS works OK
+ Camera is decent for Skype, et al.
+ Memory easy to add, but may break the plastic tabs to door. Be GENTLE!
- Annoying fingerprint logo at start up that cannot be personalized.
+ Fan intake in the back, not under. Great for laptop use, or dusty desktops, keeps vents clean.
- NO HD activity light <- MAJOR Feature failure. It's a black box ready for malware and viruses.
- No Wifi hard disconnect switch <- 2nd MAJOR failure for hackers
- No WiFi indicator light <- ibid.
- No visible CapsLock or NumLock light.
- Missing power 'on' light on PSU brick.
- Screen flexes when you grab one corner and move it
- No lid lock, no area for fingers to grab screen, hard to lift w/o bending screen
- Touchpad accidentally clicks all over the place when touched with palms.
- Missing right/left mouse button, they literally are virtual
- Touch pad actually useless, Mouse is mandatory for REAL work.
- No enable/disable touchpad (!)
- No sleep/hibernate button you have to use Fn-4
- Meaningless "projector" button that does the exact same as Win+P (!)
- Fn lock is inverted, so a green light has to be illuminated to have standard Fn button operation (!}
- Changing drive bay requires removal of memory/HD panel which is flimsy and can break plastic tabs and uses a tiny screw.Read more ›
This new Lenovo W540 suffers substantially from a usability standpoint. I find this laptop unsuitable for travel, especially compared to prior models. YMMV.
Get a W530, T530p, or T430 instead.
This review is just my experience during a corporate upgrade.
I'm a tall, large-handed power-user with 33 years of computer experience.
This means I also have expectations that may not match yours. YMMV
To get comparisons against multiple different laptops, see Tom's Hardware, CNET, etc.
To get product specifications, Lenovo's website, via any popular search engine, will give you summary, technical, etc details.
* Single button platform trackpad which is difficult to position the mouse AND click at the same time. This is a usability issue, but may not be an issue for people who prefer this style of mouse.
* The keyboard is edge to edge so my hands hang off. No alternative keyboard options. This is a comfort issue for me. Smaller users probably will not have this problem.
* No LEDs for wireless, battery, or DISK ACTIVITY. This can be an issue if you're waiting for it to boot or shutdown, and just general status.
* No eject for ultrabay devices. You have to remove screws and pry it out with the power off. This can be an issue if you use a second disk in the ultrabay slot.
* Came with a cut WLAN cable inside the bottom access hatch. This seems to be poor handling/QC.
* Uses a 22x42mm M.2 slot instead of mSATA, so it's limited in capacity for that bay. Originally, this was limited to 128GB, because an M.2 42mm card only has room for two flash chips. Since the original review, higher density chips have come out, and a 256GB M.2 22x42mm device is now available.Read more ›
