Some Lenovo laptops include a dedicated Bluetooth button, but the ThinkPad W510 has the Bluetooth function buried under a sub-menu. You can access the sub-menu using the keyboard. Once Bluetooth is enabled, you can pair the ThinkPad W510 with a variety of Bluetooth devices, including headsets and cell phones. Bluetooth does drain the battery faster; however, so the user should only enable it when they are ready to use it to conserve battery power.
