Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2522 review: Lenovo ThinkPad T410 2522

Where the ThinkPad T410 2522 shines is with battery life. Its nine-cell (94 watts per hour) battery sticks out from the back of the laptop about an inch (it's shaped in such a way, however, that it makes a convenient handle) and ran for an impressive 5 hours 46 minutes on CNET Labs' demanding video-playback battery drain test.

Lenovo backs the ThinkPad T410 2522 with an industry standard one-year parts and labor warranty. Phone support is toll-free and available 24-7, and Lenovo's support Web site offers useful forums and driver downloads.
