LENOVO THINKPAD T410 2.4GHz i5-520M 4GB by Lenovo

After living with this laptop for the last week I can happily say it is nearly superb. I’m finding it very hard to find anything bad to say about it. Lets start with the good.

-Fantastic keyboard
-Snappy CPU
-Plenty of RAM
-Plenty of HDD space
-Nice bright, clear screen
-Comfortable track pad
-Solid build quality
-Good speakers

-Battery life is only 2 hours, but you can buy extended battery’s.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same!!, 13 April 2014
An Unexpected Party was poor. Desolation is worse.

The middle film was always going to be difficult, even with enough source material, however as trilogy is already paper thin, and is little more than a filler to get us to part three, it's a real disappointment.

Even with Legolas thrown into the mix it's a strangely un-engaging piece that sees our 13 dwarves lurching, once again, from one dangerous situation to another, without any real danger. Just like Party, our time with these incompetent dwarves just proves what a useless bunch they are. Thorin Oakenshield leads his party from one avoidable disaster to another with boring regularity and must easily rank as the… Read more
