I strongly believe that a business notebook is better off as looking serious.
And serious doesn’t necessarily mean ugly. The SL500 from Lenovo doesn’t only
look serious but looks evil too. The magnificent black casing makes this new
ThinkPad look hauntingly beautiful. The understated yet enough number of
indicators and one touch keys set a whole new example of vintage elegance. While
at the same time, the fine lines and perfect ergonomics seem to come as a
byproduct of superior build quality. And in totality, it looks like a serious
but beautiful notebook. In what can be said as the true ThinkPad style, there is
a trackball and a touchpad. Even though its build seems to be like that of a
military tank, the keyboard is as comfortable as a Rolls Royce. But to our
disappointment, the same can not be said for the hardware inside. Running this
computer at 1.8 GHz is a Core 2 Duo processor coupled with only 1GB of RAM.
Adding to this is the absence of a dedicated graphics card. These factors also
reflected in benchmark results. While the PC Mark score was a decent 3581, 3D
Mark 06 had to do with a mere 618. The battery managed to last for 2 hours 37
minutes which is just decent. If compared, Dell’s latitude E 5400 comes at an
almost same price but runs on Centrino 2 and hence, delivers a better
performance like a four plus hours battery life.
