Lenovo ThinkPad T530

 

Lenovo's 15-inch ThinkPad T530 combines exceptional performance, a gorgeous display and a comfortable keyboard in a top-notch business notebook.

Excellent performance; Long-lasting battery; Exceptional keyboard; Sharp display with good viewing angles; Business-friendly software suite

Below-average display brightness; Lacks dedicated number pad

Click to EnlargeWe probably sound like a broken record, but in the ThinkPad T530, Lenovo has once again created an excellent notebook that gives users more than enough power to meet their business needs in a durable design. Impressive battery life, a...

The Lenovo ThinkPad T530 is well suited for a student or businessperson, but it lacks the features and power to handle more advanced computing tasks.

Very nice laptop for the price

 

- Definitely would buy again - Great option for developers or college students (like me)

- Plenty of ram - SSD is quite fast - Decent processor is close to beating my quadcore desktop AMD fx 4300 on benchmarks - Possibly upgradable (forums say so) to an i7-3940XM, which blows both of those away (any g2 socket i7 processor should work)

- trackpad can be weird to two-finger scroll sometimes

Great Product Fast Shipping, Windows 7 included!

 

Package Windows 7 disks with a Windows 7 installed laptop, Duh..

I have worked with other PC distributors who no longer offered the T530 Lenovo laptop. The new laptop that is offered now is the T540 (from the other distributor) It is frustrating to use mouse pad. I will not buy a product for my company that I have...

Lenovo Drivers can be tough to find for the right product if you don't have the right install disk (Windows 8 recovery disks come with the laptop). You have to call Lenovo 800-IBM-SERV, and ask for the disks for Windows 7 if you have to re-image....

Good Value But lots of bundled software

 

Good Price looks and feels like a durable product, but lots of bundled software that in a business environment is not needed or desired. Can not speak to the reliability being this product was just purchased and too soon to tell if it can last.

Lenovo ThinkPad T530 2359 - 15.6" - Core i5 3210M - Windows 7 Professional

 

I had a hard time letting go of my trusty Dell Latitude D630, but this laptop is doing the trick. It's very fast, the touchpad is responsive, the keyboard is very nice, and of course it's built like a truck.

Strong Performance, and yet...

 

On an otherwise great laptop, Lenovo could have included a better keyboard on the T530. That would have made it a "10" for me. But it's still a strong "8".

Weight, Wireless card, Screen size, Display performance, Display resolution, Battery, Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Memory, Storage, runs surprisingly cool

Lenovo ThinkPad T530 2359 - 15.6" - Core i5 3210M - Windows 7 Professional

 

We have a few floating around still. TWO issues since purchase. Both user induced and both dealt with VERY quickly and painlessly by Lenovo.
