"I live on my laptop, and I could not ask for better. It runs smoothly and has a great camera and mic. I wish the battery had a little more life in it. I am overall pleased with yet another great device from Lenovo."

Review 2 for ThinkPad L530
Owned Product:7-12 months
Far from best purchase
Date:June 12, 2013
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Screen size
"Lenovo is not IBM.
Pro: Computer runs well, nothing to say about performance. Baterry life is rather on the good side.
Cons: But at this size of a desktop replacment i would have expected the option to get a FULL size keyboard with numpad. The wide pseudo 15inch display is actually very small. If compared to true 15inch display, it would hardly reach 13inches. No external mic jack.
Everything else in not worth mentioning - average.
"I have a student edition L530, a sale through my college, that is running a socket g2 Celeron 1000m instead of the i3 or i5 chip. It runs the same 4gb ddr3 1600 and the same 320gb hard drive as listed. Even with the cheaper processor (1.8ghz dual core 22nm) it is fast and stable, runs win7 and Office `13 with ease. Construction is VERY solid, heavy screen hinges, keyboard feels light to the touch, but keys are smooth when pressed. Speakers have decent sound, positioned in front, below the wrist pad, so setting the unit on a table or stand improves sound quality immensely. Overall, I would recommend this unit to others."
