Going well

Date:February 2, 2013
Pros: Battery, Input/Output compatibility, Weight, Processor, Memory, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Storage, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: Bluetooth
"I got an L430, I5 3210, 14" 1600x900. I love the screen resolution, and the fact that it is not glossy. It does have a limited viewing angle.
I had some trouble installing all the Windows updates, had to select a few at a time and repeat the process many times.
I like how easy it is to add in more DRAM and access the hard drive. I just need to work out if the mini PCIe slot will accept mSATA, to add in a SSD.
My only complaint, and this may be why this unit was cheap, is that it doesn't have a camera. I know others do, but if that was important to me I should have been paying attention.
Overall, a great laptop for home. Now I need to persuade work to buy me one just the same."

Nice Laptop - But .....

Date:June 15, 2014
"I was extremely satisfied with my purchase.
The included features for the price were hard to pass up. Overall the feel and performance were great.Then after about a month of light use- I was still using my old computer as i transitioned over to the new one.
It would try to power up but never boot.
No safe mode - No Prompts - No Working Drives.
In for repairs before ever using it fulltime.
Sad excuse for quality control.
Motherboard and Keyboard need to be replaced.
Service and Turnaround were fast and efficient but should not have been needed on a new unit.
I would love to recommend Lenovo because i do enjoy using this laptop now and it is nicer than most others i considered. For my uses I just don’t know if it will hold up.
Obviously quality is not what it used to be.
My old Panasonic Toughbook ran strong for 9 brutal years without a failure until the screen cracked! Yes I do not replace equipment till it breaks.
The l430 is still worth your consideration..."

Very happy

Date:June 3, 2014
"It is easy to carry, the battery life is excellent.
The screen is good.
I have owned it about three months, use it daily.
I am very happy with the purchase, I would do it again, and certainly recommend it to a friend.
No complaints at all.

Owned Product:7-12 months
Operating System:Windows 8
Processor:Intel Core i5
Memory:4 GB or more

Solid and dependable

Date:December 3, 2013
Pros: Battery, Durability, Keyboard/peripherals, Storage
Cons: Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, display angles
"Got the 14" with 1600x900 HD+, 1T HDD, & 9-cell battery. I'm a fan of the pointing stick, but turned off the trackpad, as it would spaz out when I typed or put hands near it.
Watching movies is fast, but a pain because there is only ONE good viewing angle, and it's very fussy. I have to tilt the screen back quite far for detail to appear, and forget watching with another person, nobody sees well.
My wifi radio cuts out periodically; need a driver update.
Overall, it's fast, dependable, lightweight, and solid. If I can have the pointer stick and find a better display at upgrade time, I'll stay a happy Lenovo camper."
