Product Reviews
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great laptop, solidly built with an excellent keyboard, and more than enough power for my daily routine.Aside from how much it weighs, I've got no real complaints about this laptop. It handled the transition to Windows 10 beautifully, and is still quite fast. September 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by These are nice laptops, however I feel like the touchpad quality and feel has gone WAY down hill from the T430 model I grown to love. September 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Recently started to deploy some T540 with SSD in our different office and everyone from the user to the tech like to work with those. Screen also have a pretty nice display. I recommend them September 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by The speed is extremely fast on these laptops when you include an SSD. They keyboard is nicely laid out, and the inclusion of a number pad is a nice touch. We've been having issues with this laptop not wanting to wake up from sleep mode, and resulting in improper shut downs (I believe a BIOS update will fix this, but haven't confirmed). As others have pointed out, the trackpad design is unpleasant. The trackpad has a very unusual design with it's press down to click setup, which I don't find super precise. It's very very easy for people resting their palms on the laptop to hit the left side of the trackpad and then click an area where you are not typing. About a 25% of the teachers I've deployed these laptops to have requested mice and the trackpad disabled.Overall the laptop has potential, with an excellent battery life, fast speed, and nice keyboard. If Lenovo can overcome the trackpad and sleep issues in their next version, they will have an excellent laptop. May 7, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very disappointed with the T540p compared to the T530 series. The overall "feel" quality is not even comparable. The performance is great, but the laptop feels like an entry level business laptop --- before those felt like toys.The main problem I have with the T540p is the docking. With the previous generation, you would put the laptop in the dock, press it down firmly and you're good to go. With the T540p, you press it down and you feel like you're going to break the screen. Being the ThinkPad's flagship, I'm disappointed overall.I would rate this comparable to the L series they used to have. Older ThinkPad's come back from the dead and haunt you (they last so long)....I have a feeling these will be tossed instead of re-purposed after their first deployment. January 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great laptop. Good looking, fast, and quiet, we have a number of these deployed throughout the office. I definitely recommend them. October 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great battery life, cool function keys, and a bright screen. The only thing I miss is my keyboard light on my T520. I didn't get the back-lit keyboard on this one. I have gotten used to the touch pad, although it is not my favorite. This machine with the i5 really gets the job done and then some. September 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Coming from a Macbook at home, the trackpad is easy for me to use, although the depression feature of it is a bit tacky feeling. However, for my users, who are used to old style trackpads, find it very confusing, and request mice to use with it. Aside from that, the laptops have been fast, easy to deploy and set up, and our employees love them! September 12, 2014
