Decent laptop but has noise

Tianle Gao, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • 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

jwamazon, Amazon

  • 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. Presumably this is due to the recovery partition. 35GB reserved just to restore your system? This is almost 20% of the entire space of the drive and seems very excessive.

Great deal, but both of two laptops have nosiy fans

Leo, Amazon
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. It's very annoyed and noisy when running Windows updates, virus scan and etc. After sending back to Lenovo repair center, I got them back in two days. That's so fast!

Great in every way except for one!

Claudia M Calhoon, Amazon

  • 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.

T430S is a Great Laptop...Except...

Zack, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • 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.

Overall it seems like a good machine

Natalie, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • 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. The person at Lenovo had me try several things to activate Bluetooth and concluded (with some amazement) that the system did not have it! So I will have to buy a USB bluetooth adapter, which is not expensive, but will occupy one of the USB ports. 2.
