Summary: Bought this around June of this year. Everything's great and I had no problems with it. It's a fair price for an excellent machine. Everything was working in order. My only caveat is that there was no WWAN card installed. The option to install one is there on the laptop; I went back and forth looking over this model (2344BMU) and did my research, all of them seemed to have a WWAN card. But unfortunately, not this one. Overall its still a good purchase.
Thinkpad 14 inch or 12 inch choices and DVD options.

Summary: Very nice laptop and even better made by Lenovo in the Thinkpad tradition. Also have the X230 Tablet which am typing on now. Each has its own strengths. What is nice is the T430 includes a DVD recorder built in while the X230 must use the base to use its DVD Drive. It would be super if the X230 could include the DVD drive but maybe with the future of DVD's and CD's going digital it may be not an issue in the future.
