Good laptop for very fair price

Date:April 14, 2014
"Well, it doesn't give you all performance as we used to see on "normal" T430 however I am quite satisfied with this piece.
It offers quite solid performance (i5 with 4 threads) and also sufficient storage (500 GB) and very good feature - I appreciate hybrid disc - it combines speed with huge capacity).
I found out display is a weakness and also was surprised by only 2 USB ports. Also, what I consider as a weak point is absence of special buttoms for volume control... That's pretty uncomfortable! Despite all weaknesess it's solid and reliable friend on th way, at home...

Flimsy Casing Broke

Date:January 21, 2014
Pros: Processor
Cons: Display resolution, Warranty, Support, Battery, Build Quality, Display performance, Durability
"I bought this directly from Lenovo, and on arrival the frame felt flimsy and flexible. Little did I know, the laptop's casing was already broken and was never meant to be that flexible. The laptop continued to be flimsy for a few months, then the casing completely came apart from the inside. After taking the computer to a Lenovo authorized repair business, I was told that the laptop was broken due to "user error", and had to pay 300 dollars to fix it since that was not covered under a warranty. I could not have known the product was defective instead of just poorly made."

Wasted potential

Date:January 16, 2014
Pros: Processor, Security Features
Cons: Display resolution, Input/Output compatibility, Keyboard/peripherals, Display performance
"Lots of potential in the hardware, but Lenovo completely screwed up two key factors affecting user interface. First, the display -- it's a cheap piece of junk-tech and it shows. Horrible contrast, muddy colors, minimal resolution -- it's seriously difficult to use for long periods of time. Secondly, the touchpad is the absolute worst I have ever used. Tap sensitivity is horrible, forcing me to double, triple, quadruple tap just to get it to register. But I have the opposite problem when trying to use the mouse buttons. That area of the touchpad is cursor-sensitive, so when you try to left or right click, your thumb inevitably moves sideways a bit and so does the cursor, so you end up clicking somewhere you don't mean to."
