Wonderful laptop!

Date:July 30, 2012
Pros: Weight, Durability, Wireless card, Screen size, Build Quality, Display resolution, Battery, Processor, Memory, Keyboard/peripherals
"I bought this laptop for a durable, fast, long lasting computer for school, going on the internet, watching movies, etc. It's a wonderful computer! It's very durable, the keyboard is great, the trackpad is a bit stiff though, but I use a wireless mouse anyways. The dedicated function keys are great! I got the webcam with it and it's very high quality and it comes with a fingerprint reader. Minimal stickers, minimal lights for less of a distraction, and very efficient use of space for everything. It doesn't run very hot, just a bit warm which is normal. I got the 62 watt hour battery with it and it's worth the upgrade from the 48 watt hour so definitely get that! I would recommend this laptop for anyone!"

"I wasn't sure how this laptop would turn out, since I've never seen it in stores. I used a Thinkpad T series for the past 7 years but it was time to upgrade. So I took the plunge and am very happy with the Edge E430! Specs: 4 GB, i5, 320 GB HD
Display: I got the matte screen-bright enough to see in direct sunlight, decent color (not as good as a LCD TV or a high end HP of course, but fine!)
Keyboard: A pleasure to type on!
Mouse pad: MY FAVORITE PART! Allows you to pinch and zoom, show the desktop, scroll, and its textured and does NOT get in the way of typing. I tried ASUS and Samsung mousepads and they ALWAYS made you skip lines while typing. Don't forget you have the nipple too to use in the middle of the G and H key, something I only found in Dells, and we know about Dell's reliability (not good!)
Battery: decent! depends on your settings, but I've made it go 8 hours on slow processor/dim display when I've forgotten my power cord.
Boot time: CRAZY FAST (instant!!) wake from sleep (make sure Hybrid sleep is DISABLED). Fresh boot from shut down will be a couple of minutes. I've never seen anything so fast! Must be the 7200 RPM drive (note most other manufacturers will give you 5400 RPM drive which are much slower even though they are 500 GB-1 TB) I have 8 GB RAM, but most of u should be able to be fine with 4 GB.
USB ports-3 of them with 2 being USB 3.0 is awesome!
Fingerprint reader can be used to log into any website-awesome!!
And SERVICE: I got a virus on my computer that fooled me into thinking I had a hard drive failure. Calling Lenovo tech support was hugely helpful, easy, and friendly. Can't beat that!!
No, this doesn't have the hard drive, battery, plug, caps on, num lock lights like the T-series does, but those are really not needed-everything
