Summary: this laptop is refurbished not 100 % new i thought it was new, the windows was activated when i received it plus the antivirus's trial was over, its obvious thats its used plus the battery life is 2:30 hrs only lenovos website says its 7 hrs standard
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.
Great deal, but both of two laptops have nosiy fans

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.
Something is wrong with the right hand side of the bottom panel.

Summary: I am in china,Because in US IBM is much cheaper than in CHina, so i bough this computer and asked a friend brought it to China. But this notebook has a problem, Something is wrong with the right hand side of the bottom panel. it tilt. someone said AMAZON is not very plitely to foreigh ID.
Summary: This is a great laptop except that batter life is only 3-4 hours. Compared to the T430 with a 9 cell which gets 8 hours. It is lighter and thinner than the T430 but I needed better battery life so I will be using the T430.
