Review Update Lenovo ThinkPad T430s Notebook

 

More power! Having already taken a close look at the cheap US version of the ThinkPad T430s, we now turn to the high end configuration with a Core i7 processor and a 180 GB SSD. Can Lenovo justify a price of over 1700 Euros (~$2200) for its business...

Borderlands 2 Benchmarked

 

Guaranteed fun. What do you get when you mix role-playing and action components and garnish it with cel-shaded looks and a loose sense of humor? Right: Borderlands 2. We looked closer at the colorful, exotic blend and checked Unreal Engine 3's hardware...

Lenovo ThinkPad T430 Review: The Best Just Got Worse

 

The ThinkPad T-series is Lenovo's bread and butter business notebook. This 14-inch T430 is a refreshed version of the popular T420. Read on to find out what we like and dislike about this laptop.

Great keyboard (see cons) ; 15 hour battery life with 9-cell ; Excellent build quality ; Input/output port variety

Non-standard keyboard layout ; Poor 1366x768 screen

The ThinkPad T430 generally remains the king of 14-inch business notebooks though I have a few reservations. Bad news first: the base 1366×768 screen has too little resolution to get quality multitasking work done if you work with spreadsheets or...

Incorrect Model Received

 

I would not recommend this company (Nettradez) to friends or family; I called the assistance number and was greeted with a muted "hello." He did concede the mistake and gave a $25 refund and is sending 4 GB RAM to me to make up for it. Hopefully they...

- Laptop runs just fine for what it is - In great condition with very few, minor scratches, and is clean. The worst part is the trackpad, which shows some moderate wear, but is still okay condition. - The laptop does indeed come with a 240 GB (223...

- Received a model with only 4 GB of RAM, a 3210M Core i5 instead of the 3320M - Of all the things they got right, it did indeed come with a 1366 x 768. I was hoping that I would get lucky like others and received one with the upgraded resolution of...

Better Than Advertised
