Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Display resolution, Display performance, much longer boot up time
"After reading a lot of reviews regarding Edge E530 and its price i decided to purchase it but my experience was avg(Satisfactory) not good. As per my opinion its boot up time is much longer while my machine is i5 3210 with 6GB ram. It is major drawback of this machine. Over all performance is good."
"I got this laptop 2 days ago,This is not portable laptop,It is good if you work only at home or in office, I mean you can't carry this laptop every where like as T series.This is not strong likeas T series. I recommend this laptop for people that they are not travelling with laptop and They like bright screen. The Screen is too bright , I don't like this too bright screen."
"I've owned a ThinkPad Edge, a ThinkPad E520, and now this ThinkPad E530. I've used IBM/Lenovo's for years, and these three have all servered e perfectly. I find them to be sturdier than expected, althought they're not built to "T Series" standards, but they've all stood up my teenage son and daughter. A test in itself. In terms of performance, you get what you pay for. The faster the processor you buy, then obviously the faster it will be. I have little sympathy for soeone who say I bought it a year ago and it's slow now. What software are they running on it? Is is infected with viri? When was the last time they defragged the disk?"
