Review Lenovo ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
4 January 2013
  • Summary: New family member. Lenovo expands its T400 range with a mobile ultrabook that is to appeal to both business and private customers alike. Classic ThinkPad assets as well as high-performance, including a dedicated GPU, make the T430u an attractive total package.
  • Pros: Good manufacturing quality, Excellent keyboard, Low noise development, High application performance, Fast SSD, Gaming suitability, USB 3.0 and DisplayPort, 3 year warranty, If you can live without the additional interfaces and expandability of the T430(s), the ThinkPad T430u could be an interesti...
  • Cons: Somewhat thicker and heavier than other ultrabooks, Weak speakers, Dark screen, Average battery life, A few of the most important ultrabook qualities - weight, battery life and screen brightness - regrettably come a bit short in the T430u. If you are looking for a laptop uncompromisingly designed...

Review Lenovo ThinkPad T430s Notebook

Notebookcheck
30 September 2012
  • Summary: Slimmer without the drawbacks. The T430s is sold as both a thinner, lighter variant of the standard-size T430 and as a successor to the T420s with an AccuType keyboard. We find out in this review what sacrifices, if any, had been made in order to offer the overall smaller package.
  • Pros: Classic ThinkPad quality, VGA and DisplayPort output, SIM card and WWAN connectivity, Ultrabay and Docking Port expansions, Matte display, Backlit keyboard and ThinkLight, The T430s retains the workmanship and features of the T430 while being thinner and lighter. Very few hardware compromises wer...
  • Cons: Unimpressive battery life, Low contrast ratio, Small touchpad, Average speakers, Costly accessories, Chiclet keys can feel soft to some, Fewer configurable options compared to T430, The below average battery life and low contrast ratio are perhaps the largest factors in need of improvement. Users...

Review Lenovo ThinkPad T430 Notebook

Notebookcheck
22 September 2012
  • Summary: Gentle evolution. Instead of taking a radical change, Lenovo steps gently in advancing their established ThinkPad series. The quick Ivy Bridge processors should increase the performance and innovations, such as USB 3.0, should demonstrate their will to improve.
  • Pros: Solid casing, Excellent input devices, USB 3.0 and docking port, Good application performance, Low system noise, Integrated UMTS, Enormous battery, 3 year warranty, At first we were scared about the Chiclet keyboard, however, it impressed us with its perfect quality and the excellent type feeling...
  • Cons: Bad display contrast and poor angle of view, High power consumption, High temperature development, HDMI only via an adapter, It were not many and mostly small defects we found during the review of the T430. We would like to see the next ThinkPad with a qualitatively higher display to improve the ...

  • Conclusion: No geral ficamos bastante impressionados com o desempenho do T430u que recebemos para testes, mas precisamos deixar claro que essa versão pode não ser aquela que será comercializada em nosso País.
