no larger capacity battery option

not designed as a consumer device - lacks features such as an HDMI output for use with home theater equipment

5400 rpm hard drive speed is a slim bottleneck for this otherwise fast system.

Display has poor contrast and colour accuracy.

2 agree

fairly high price premium over the beefier but more customizable T410

Matte, rubberized finish tends to attract dust.

anyone know whether there is an after market extended battery that would work with thinkpad 410s?

I do not know of any 3rd party options - but I probably wouldn't trust them either. A beautiful thing about the 410s which I neglected to include in my review is its support for a 4-cell battery slice that can be placed in the computer's optical drive slot. This not only extends the battery life of the unit significantly, but allows you to hot-swap the system battery without having to turn the unit off.

Good point, Yale. I have the t400s
Same deal. Do you know where you can pick one of those optical slot batteries? How much?

Lenovo's website (at least the Canadian version) is such a mess when it comes to batteries. I couldn't find a slice for either the T400 (supported?), T400s or T410s. What a disappointment compared to their software, support and computer customization / purchasing sites. Configuring a new computer usually gives you the option to add extra batteries but there were no slice options (or additional battery options at that) with the T410s! Either way, a slice is going to be a bit expensive, 2 slices I did find on their battery site were around $150. Useless Lenovo, way to drop the ball.
