Summary: I could not have hoped for more. The description said something about a small cosmetic blemish. I can't find it. I had a T400, which still works great, but it is heavy and the battery life is terrible.
Summary: Absolutely love this computer!! I've wanted another think pad for so long. This machine is incredibly quiet, runs at very cool temps, and is so much lighter and slimmer than I thought.. Hardware upgrades are a breeze and the notebook has a great rubberized feel all over.
Summary: light weight, very slicence during work, start quickly; Two points I am not comfortable with it: One is the small text of screen display; Another is the combination voice and mic hub in one . In summary, I satisfied with it and Thinkpad T430s meets my demand well.
Summary: I have has this Win7 notebook for >6 months - using with a docking station for last 3 months that is connected to a Dell 24" 2410. The screen is substandard for a machine in this category/price. Screen cannot be accurately calibrated, even using screen adjusting hardware (X-Rite).
