Review Lenovo ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook

 

New family member. Lenovo expands its T400 range with a mobile ul

Good manufacturing quality; Excellent keyboard; Low noise development; High application performance; Fast SSD; Gaming suitability; USB 3.0 and DisplayPort; 3 year warranty

Somewhat thicker and heavier than other ultrabooks; Weak speakers; Dark screen; Average battery life

The T430u competes with both other ultrabooks as well as premium Office laptops. Dell's Latitude E6430s, Fujitsu's Lifebook U772, Acer's Aspire M5-481TG, Samsung's 535U4C or Asus' UX32VD are possible alternatives.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad T430u

 

A few traits that run in the ThinkPad family – sturdy build, incredibly comfortable, surface “curvy”, and spaced out keyboard; a generous and responsive trackpad, and that iconic, impersonal (maybe dated) ThinkPad look. From that ancestral line comes...

If you want a notebook that’s IT-secure, ThinkPad-tough, SSD-snappy, and gives an incredible typing and trackpad experience, all within a familiar Windows 8 platform, then the Lenovo ThinkPad T430u should be on your list. This, mind you, is not a...

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...
