Review Lenovo ThinkPad T430s Notebook

 

Slimmer without the drawbacks. The T430s is sold as both a thinner, lighter variant of the standard-size T430 and as a successor to the T420s with an AccuType keyboard. We find out in this review what sacrifices, if any, had been made in order to offer...

Lenovo ThinkPad T430U review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad T430u is the Ultrabook version of Lenovo's popular T range of business notebooks. It looks almost identical to its significantly more expensive cousin the T420, but the slim T430u stands just 21mm thick and weighs 1.9kg. It isn't...
