Whether you're an overachiever or an up-and-comer, ThinkPad laptops are the tools you need--including the Lenovo ThinkPad Laptop, W540. From the thin-and-light wonder to the heavy-duty mobile workstation, they're built, tested and enhanced for reliability, durability and speed. ThinkPad laptops endure a lot before they ever reach you. Lenovo meticulously designs many of them to pass rugged military spec tests. They are outfitted with spill-resistant keyboards, roll-cage technology and shock-mounted hard drives. And they are tested in ways you can't imagine: baking, battering and blistering.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.1 out of 5★ by 110reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful machine Overall great machine.Positives: The processor is very fast. I always have great wifi connection, but go for the dual band esp. if you attend college. 8GB of RAM is great; you can upgrade that (& nearly everything else) if need be. Writing speeds are fantastic; everything downloads faster than I have ever experienced. Battery life IS GOOD. People crying about battery life either have abused their battery/spend their entire days watching movies. Yesterday my charge lasted 8+ hours; I downloaded Itunes, watched a movie, surfed the web, played music & let it sit some. Beats its competitors. The keyboard is FANTASTIC; its quick, durable & the backlight is great. Finally, the screen is beautiful; hardly any glare & still everything looks great. Fan isnt loud at all.Negatives: The trackpad is a pain; its too reactive and I prefer having the buttons. Buy a mouse. Not so visually appealing & slightly heavy.Awesome purchase; recommended to anyone needing a fast machine for a great price. 06/23/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Frustrated I ordered this laptop as a graduation present for myself. I wanted a powerful computer with a large screen because I am going to school for engineering. Complaint #1: I ordered the laptop with Windows 8 with a free downgrade to 7, but it came with 7 installed. I called Lenovo and they didn't offer to do or help with anything. Complaint #2: The pre-installed desktop gadgets do not work. Lenovo tried to help fix the problem but was only willing to go so far. Instead they transferred me to a company that offered to fix the problem for a large fee. This made me really angry considering I still had about 350 days left on my 1 year warranty. Complaint #3: After having the computer for about 2 months I already have a dead pixel in the middle of the screen. I haven't contacted Lenovo about this problem yet. I hope they will offer to replace the screen, but alas... my expectations are so low at this point I kinda doubt they will do anything.I expected more after paying $1600 for this laptop. 07/06/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by TOOL FOR WORKING I think all the bad reviews are because folks bought the wrong computer for what they doing. This machine is a tool for working. Among such laptops, it is far and away the best. The W540 has the DNA of the W series all over it, with some wonderful improvements. The off center keyboard is perfect for command line software, such as Autocad and Rhino, using the mouse in concert with key entry. The track pad is huge, its a great improvement on the old one. Lenovo made this machine specifically to optimize the work flow of an architect/engineer/designer. If you are one of those people, buy this machine. If you are not, do not buy this machine. You will hate everything about it because you dont understand the purpose of it. Thanks Lenovo for breathing new life into the W series. It is far away the ultimate portable workstation. 06/22/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by excellent best labtop i ever seen i like to get one :( 07/10/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by W540 machine is good trackpad is bad we recently purchased several W540's as replacements for w530's and found that they have an additional keypad on the keyboard that caused the track pad to be moved to the left which makes it extremely hard to use. We have had to disable the trackpad because of the errors it was causing. 07/07/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Crash After spending days getting it set up and loading all of the software I need for my job I got to use it for 2 weeks before I had to take my first trip. Just before I left I noticed it did a couple of 'funny' things but nothing serious. Left for the trip (of course out of the country) and it ended up crashing, and crashing hard. I was able to run in safe mode for a while and pull files off but that was it. Came back and sent it in to Lenova. Ended up with a new motherboard and hard drive. I did get it back in four days!Last one was a 4 year old T500, that's why we stayed with a thinkpad. Not sure about the next one now. 07/07/2014
Rated 3 out of 5★ by One step forward two steps backward The new form factor and weight of the W540 is an improvement. It's a great addition to have removed the speakers and enlarged the keyword these are the only positives.Now the other changes make this machine absolutely awful and unusable as a true 'moible workstation'1) Trackpad IS THE WORST piece of hardware I have ever used. It just doesn't work right! Making the trackpad bigger was a good idea but the new system where the entire trackpad is clickable just doesn't work, when you click it moves the mouse, apple got it right, lenovo didn't.2) Then the two finger scrolling is just bad but then again it's always sort of been on windows compared to apple. In photoshop this new trackpad is 100% unusable.3) F1/F2 keys are now also sound up and down keys this is just bad, I'm constantly working in software that needs the F keys and also listening to music.4) The hard disk activity indicator is gone, this was the few positive of pc vs mac, now gone too 06/28/2014
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Not worth the price I paid I was a very happy W700 owner but needed to switch to a new, smaller laptop after 5 years. I bought this W540 in February 2014 with all the top-of-the-line options. After 4 months, I can say the computer does the job (intensive Photoshop retouching of very large files from the Nikon D800e) but there have been a number of quality issues that have really annoyed me. The wireless card has a shorter range, and disconnects much more than a 3 year-old Macbook Pro card. There have been odd and inconsistent compatibility issues with the external NEC monitor I have. It seems to be some sort of conflict with the Lenovo software that manages the laptop screen. Also, the power management software is glitchy--doesn't remember my unplugged/battery power settings and dims the screen despite my choice otherwise. The operating system is 4 months old and already the computer cannot restart, only shut down. I will be reloading the operating system soon. And lastly, the system runs very very hot. 06/23/2014
