Cons

1366x768 is a low resolution considering it is a business notebook designed for productivity, 1600x900 would have been a good option

1 agrees

Mediocre display quality, poor contrast and brightness

1 agrees

15.6" chassis, but does not make use of the space, disappointing to not see a keypad

1 agrees

Budget version of the T520, thicker and heavier, can be considered as the old Thinkpad R series
