Performance and value

Contemporary, stylish design
Like every ThinkPad, the SL Series is black to give it a serious, businesslike exterior. Its glossy finish gives it an edgier, more personalized look. Its vibrant-view and anti-glare displays deliver an outstanding picture, whether viewing spreadsheets or watching videos.
Lenovo is committed to protecting the environment and keeping your energy costs low. And we’re especially proud that the ThinkPad SL400 and SL500 earned an EPEAT Silver rating from the Green Energy Council. To earn a silver rating, the ThinkPad SL400 and SL500 had to pass a set of 23 required performance criteria and 50% of the optional criteria in 8 categories.
The new ENERGY STAR® 4.0 label attests to their superior efficiency and low emissions.
The ENERGY STAR® 4.0 label requires that discrete graphics models in idle state consume less than 22W power, integrated graphics models less than 14W. This lowers operating costs, obviously. However, it also means reduced energy costs and heat emissions, making the ThinkPad SL notebook a wise choice for the environment and your business.
Reliability you can trust
ThinkPad SL protects your investment and your valuable data with several reliability features. Its Active Protection System protects your hard drive when sudden movement is detected. Its spill-resistant keyboard protects the internal components of the ThinkPad SL by funneling spilled liquid to a drain hole in the bottom of the system.
Our user friendly Rescue and Recovery tool lets you quickly diagnose and recover from an external virus or spyware so you can get back to your business as quickly as possible.
