Summary: The Lenova has the small size and weight coupled with speed to make it the ideal laptop for travel for those still using laptops. Keys are quite large and easily readable. Only has 2 USB2 ports - would prefer four 4.
Summary: I'm totally happy with my Lenovo T430 except for a strange, plastic, chemical smell that emits from the left side vent. It smells faintly like band aids to me. I sent it to Lenovo Service Center and they said they had no idea what I was talking about. Smell is pretty subjective, and this is a highly individualized problem. So I think I'm stuck with it, but if this sort of thing tends to bother you, consider another model.
Something is wrong with the right hand side of the bottom panel.

Summary: I have worked on a thinkpad in the past and I have always appreciated the solid construction, keyboard and the dull not so fancy appearance (is that weird?)... Anyway, t430 is different, not in a bad way...my biggest complain the noisy fan..yes its there to remind you that its working v hard for ya...but I think I can live with it..for now at least...
