It rated higher than the ThinkPad Edge 11" overall, and either bettered or equalled all of its component scores.

This arrangement means that most of the ports are squeezed onto the left-hand side. Next comes a pair of vertically stacked USB ports whose proximity may make it tricky to use both at the same time. The software bundle includes Lenovo's ThinkVantage toolbox, which gives access to a number of local and online services designed to keep the system running smoothly. It rated higher than the ThinkPad Edge 11" overall, and either bettered or equalled all of its component scores.

The highest score, an impressive 6. In between came scores of 5. This is a decent performer: Lenovo talks up the environmental credentials of its ThinkPad range, highlighting features like mercury-free displays, switchable graphics in some models, and Battery Stretch, which is designed to improve battery life.

There are several power plans to choose from, including preconfigured settings for video playback and one called 'timers off', which is optimised for making presentations. Although we run a video as our battery life test, we chose a standard Maximum Lifespan plan, and then ran a video for as long as the system could manage.

The 6-cell 2,mAh battery delivered video for 2 hours and 13 minutes, at which point playback stopped and we were told there was 9 minutes of life left in the battery. If you need longer, you can upgrade to a 9-cell 2,mAh battery.

The speakers flanking the keyboard deliver excellent-quality sound for a business notebook. There's enough bass to satisfy personal movie-watching requirements, and plenty of volume too. It's heavy, but in exchange you get a solid build and large screen. The keyboard is well designed, although you may find the dual pointing devices rather button-heavy.

Intel Centrino Advanced-N Includes a pre-loaded image of select Microsoft Office suites. Even with a strong grip or a lot of downward force, we saw minimal flex around the palmrest and keyboard.

When fully open, the screen did not have loose wobble or other problems staying firmly positioned. The bottom of the notebook has two access panels for the system memory and hard drive. Users looking to upgrade either of those will only need to take out a couple of screws to gain access. Only one of the memory slots is located beneath the notebook though, making upgrades easy if you are only adding to the memory configuration.

If you are replacing both sticks you will need to open up the notebook to get at the other slot. Ports and Features Almost every inch of the perimeter of the Lenovo ThinkPad T is filled with some form of connection or feature. The T includes three USB 2. If you are one of the ever-increasing segments of consumers that use their notebook for a desktop-replacement at home and mobile platform on the road, the latest ThinkPad Mini Dock might be for you.
