Summary: I like the brand of thinkpad, so I bought this. I turned on the laptop. Everything is fine, wait... what noise? The fan is really boring. I have know other thinkpad, none of them are noisy like this. I contact the Lenovo technical support. The service is nice but useless. I updated the bios. But the noise is still there. Also there is still noise of hard drive virberation. The service advised me to send this laptop to Lenovo to fix it. I hope it will be good then.
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: <1>. This machine runs fast but fan constantly makes a little noises, especially when you watch HD videos, noise becomes louder as fan accelerates. This'll distract you from what you're working on. If you can endure, fine then. <2>. Seller's arrogant. Why? After purchase done, the seller does not accept your return, meaning they'll NOT respond to your request. From my understanding, they regard their products as perfection, so they'd neither expect nor accept returns.
Summary: Performance: -I use this laptop for work and it is not the best productivity machine. 4 gbs of ram is fine if your intended use is casual, however having multiple spreadsheets open while running Adobe reader, IE and various other applications can easily leave you spending a frustrating amount of time waiting for process to run.
Summary: I've been a Lenovo T-series user for about a decade, going through 4 T-series laptops for work. I finally bought a personal laptop for myself, because the soon-to-be released T440 is trying to be something it's not, which is an ultrabook (no more ultrabay, touch screen, internal battery). So I thought the T430 would be the last of it's kind for traditionalists who like Windows 7 better than 8, and like that this laptop can be upgraded with a 2nd hard drive, etc.
Excerpt: От экрана болят глаза - если берете этот ноут, то купите е к нему монитор. Без монитора использовать невозможно. Качество сборки храмает - везьде зазоры небольшие. Поверхность верхней крышки очень сильно пачкается, по тому что она ширшавая. У этих ноутбуков часто бывают проблемы с кулером на бп - приходится гонять в сервис. При всех этих минусах мощность и шикарная подсветка клавиатуры не являются плюсами.
