Summary: This is less of a review than it is what to expect, since the item specs and model # are/were not correct (at time I ordered). I am guessing from reading the customer Q/A section that most or all of them probably received the same model I did, the specs are as follows: ThinkPad T430 (2347-G3U) Intel...
Pros: See other thoughts...
Cons: This is NOT model # 2344-BPU The specs are not correct.
Summary: Overall it is a decent laptop for the price but the noise from the fan is pretty loud for a new laptop. The battery can last about 6 hours and it seems to proceed pretty fast. Just the noise is kind of the bummer given it is a thinkpad that is supposed to be better quality.
Little storage space on SSD and no Windows 8 discs

Summary: The computer arrived speedily and in new packaging with unbroken seal. Overall the laptop works fine so far, but the the following points are minus points: (1) The Solid State Drive (SSD) has officially a capacity of 180GB. However, in reality Windows Explorer has access to only 145GB.
Summary: Overall it seems like a good machine, but i have a couple of gripes: 1. Amazingly, the system is not equipped with Bluetooth. I called Lenovo tech support to see if I just didn't know how to find it.
Great deal, but both of two laptops have nosiy fans
24 June 2014
Summary: Bought two Lenovo T430 at Amazon at $694 each. Comparing to around $850 at which I've bought another T430 from Lenovo last year, it's a great deal! Everything works except for one problem: Very noisy fans. Two laptops all have noisy fans.
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.
