Don't like touchpad

 

Set up was easy. Connected to my WiFi easily. But I really dislike the keyboard and touchpad. The touchpad buttons are on top, most are under the touchpad and it will take me awhile to get used to it. It also isn't as sensitive as my old Dell so I...

Faster than my old laptop

touchpad, keyboard

CHEAP FEEL INSISTS ON HAVING LENOVO SOFTWARE ON IT

Lenovo ThinkPad E530C-NZY3RUK

 

It's small, lightweight and looks pretty good albeit a little boring.

I'm not a very experienced laptop user and for something like this to come with pretty much no instruction scares me! Online instructions are great if you can figure out how to get there in the first place. A little more thought for the less computer...

Good processor for a good price.

Touchpad is an odd design and is a bit clunky. Works once you get used to it. TFT screen is not the best.

Size , clarity, weight and design

Windows 8 as I use a keyboard due to arthritic fingers ,I find it a problem when it goes to touch screen

Lenovo ThinkPad E530C-NZY3RUK

 

Functionality and value for money in a (so far) reliable product is very important to me.

Bloatware enforced by Windows 8 and the Lenovo /Intel Small Solutions for business 'apps' are a pain. Much better would be for this to be options as part of the setup routine.

Lenovo ThinkPad E530C-NZY3RUK

 

Speedy (which was the main reason I bought it) and does everything I expected to. A couple of annoying points (see below) but on the whole a great laptop.

Only a small point but the keyboard appears very cheap and uncomfortable to type on. The Ctrl key has been moved along a little and where you would expect to find it there is a fn key. Quite frustrating if you do a lot of copying and pasting. Whilst...

Design, it looks like duplicate quality and finishing is not good

Consumer review by: Christian (reevoo.com)

Lenovo ThinkPad E530C-NZY3RUK

 

- number pad separated from the rest of the keyboard - "ThinkPad" design - only a small amount of pre-installed "bloat ware" - ThinkVantage tools

- mouse pad is a bit "loose" - mouse buttons are not very responsive

Excellent machine for price.

None except Windows 8 pro is shocking.
