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 was looking for a thin and light replacement of an old T42 ThinkPad for a few months and this was the best out of box hardware configuration I could find. And it can be easily upgraded. There is a very detailed description on the seller's web site, which offered the best price.
