The latest ThinkPad falls under the T series of notebooks, pitched by Lenovo
as the one that combines performance and portability. T400 has the typical
ThinkPad matted finish which is a great relief from the glossy lids present on
most laptops today. However, a weight of 2.7 Kg does not make this notebook
ideal for field work. But features that make T400 stand out amongst other
notebooks include: a comprehensive set of security features, highly responsive
keyboard and touch pad, and screen lock. Apart from the fingerprint reader, the
other standout security feature is ‘Computrace,’ an optional monitoring service
from Absolute Software that helps in locating the laptop in case of theft or
loss. The monitoring is done with the help of a SIM card which is inserted
inside a dedicated slot.

In our benchmark tests, T400 gave a battery backup of more than 3 hrs which
is good for any laptop. When compared to laptops featured in the last month’s
‘Big Laptop Special’ story (priced between 50k to 75k), this one has the highest
battery backup time. When we compared the scores of 3D Mark and PC Mark
benchmarks for graphical and overall capability, the T400 with scores of 960 and
3974 respectively was found wanting. And even though the PC Mark score can be
passed off as average, the 3D Mark score is pretty much low, with the only
plausible reason being the absence of a dedicated graphics card.

Bottom Line: An excellent notebook if only security is your top priority.
Otherwise, with a 160 GB HDD and 1 GB RAM, this is not worth the dime.
