Review Lenovo ThinkPad W530 N1K43GE Notebook

 

Revolutionary Refresh. The ThinkPad W series has always been one

Good keyboard with backlighting; High system performance; Good CAD performance; Very good upgrade capabilities; Very good display; 36 months warranty; Very good battery runtimes

Performance throttling when used on battery; Wobbly battery; Partially increased emissions; No miniDisplayPort adapter in the accessories package; Optical drive whistles

Lenovo is ahead of the competition and is the first manufacturer to updates its workstation. Those who prefer HP, Fujitsu or Dell must either wait or grab last year's models.

For many office types, the combination of Lenovo, ThinkPad, and 15in screen will be the sweet spot for a business laptop.

The Lenovo ThinkPad W530 2447 is packed with useful ports and high-specification components. Build quality is more than adequate, but more bendy than we remember of ThinkPad workhorses. The out-of-the-box software experience is quite laughable but...

the i7 version is a great tough reliable Laptop. Sticking to the T series standards. We have had the T family as our preferred laptop in the company for 6 years. Comes with backlit keyboard which is a nice.

Just a couple of these beasts in the field. Just like the T520, they are solid, easy to maintain, run until the non-Lenovo parts give out, and are back on the street in no time when repair is needed, either by us (out of warranty), or under warranty.

Great laptop for Administration and IT development. This laptop is good out of the box but great once it is upgraded to it's full potential. i7 core is great especially with turbo boost enabled!!
