Manufacturer's Description

Performance and value
The Thinkpad SL Series has the reliability and durability small businesses require. It has the quality the ThinkPad brand is known for, as well as services and features tailored to meet their specific needs.

Outstanding connectivity
The last thing you need to worry about if you are out calling on a client is how to connect to the internet. The ThinkPad SL comes standard with WLAN built in, and offers a variety of available wireless connectivity options. The WWAN feature gives you embedded Mobile Broadband capability for faster connectivity, upload and download times. You can take advantage of your carrier’s entire network, instead of being concerned with connecting to a specific LAN. In selected cities, the ThinkPad SL’s WiMAX capability lets you connect over several miles’ radius without a long term agreement with a service provider.

Core technology
ThinkPad SL Series notebooks feature Intel® Centrino® Core™2 Duo processors. Notebooks with Intel® Centrino® Core™2 Duo technology helps keep your workforce mobile, managed and secure.

And with industry-leading performance, you’ll get faster wireless connectivity speeds and the longest possible battery life. Free up your workforce and experience mobile computing without limits. Get industry-leading performance1 from Intel.

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.

Environmentally responsible
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.

Service and support
Lenovo is known worldwide for the unique support tools and other services we provide for our systems and the customers who buy them.

  • ThinkVantage™ Productivity Center provides unique self-help tools and is accessible from a dedicated keyboard key.
  • Online e-support gives you 24-hour access to product documentation and driver downloads.
