Summary: Check your return-refund invoice and make sure your guarantee is refunded and/or covers replacement laptop, if you get one. ***What Newegg could've done: Reserve a laptop as soon as I made a replacement claim - the website sales page advertised the product as "in stock" 2 days after I made...
Pros: It's a think pad T series
Cons: This is a follow up to the comment below. I bought T430 plus 1 year replacement guarantee for $70. I sent my T430 in for replacement due to noisy fan. Newegg.ca ran out of stock by the time my unit arrived at Depot. I was refunded for the laptop. However, Newegg did not refund or give me credit f...
Cons: Bought this laptop to use as backup to Thinkpad T530 I bought 2 years ago. The fan got really noisy when running software I use for work, multi-tasking, and watching videos. I tried changing BIOS settings and didn't fix the problem. Called Newegg and asked for replacement. However, the laptop wen...
Summary: I purchased this item to replace my Lenovo T430 screen. I found that the screen is defective. It always flicks when the laptop charges its battery (at first I was not able to identify the reason. I was suspicious with the LCD cable but later eliminated this possibility).
Beggars can't be chooser - had to get this because nothing else was available
5 January 2015
Summary: I needed to get a new laptop. I'd had my old HP for 4 years and I'm a pretty hardcore business user so it was starting to have issues. I wanted to get something with Windows 7 before I couldn't get it anymore because I loathe Windows 8 and 9 wasn't on the horizon for quite some time.

Summary: Pro: Refurbished in really good status. The smell of a new T series laptop is still there. WIN7 64-bit OS included with lenovo features. Great values. Con: Little scratch on D side; Power Cable is the only accessory, nothing else; This might be a lenovo drawback that many features are not so useful...
Summary: I have this as my work computer and while it's cool that I can pop it in and out of the dock that connects to my two monitors, it's slow as hell. You can't just open and close the lid at will anymore.
Summary: There are 2 fatal design problems bothering me and my co-workers too much. (1) Fn key is located at the left bottom corner, where is usually reserved for Ctrl key. I cannot remember how many times I press the wrong key. (2) DVD loader open button is too close to the bottom edge of laptop.
Summary: I purchased a refurbished model. Usually refurbished lenovo thinkpads tend to be in pretty good shape (T Series models) However this system only last a year then screen went blank with intermittent signs of overheating. Traded it in to a computer technician for use as parts.
Summary: Let's face it: PCs tend to run cheap. And that's fine. I've been living off of $500-below laptops ever since I had my first one in college, and while they've had their issues, the issues were minor and hardly enough to push me into getting a more expensive PC or switching over to a Mac.
Summary: I'm actually quite surprised this thing gets such high reviews. The only thing that I find above-average is the very good battery life. But to me, it has a huge fundamental flaw: the buttons one uses to make selections (I don't know what they are called) are atrocious.
