Excerpt: 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. Sometimes, less is simply more – at least Lenovo seems to think so and offers a particularly slim version of the business classic T430 dubbed ThinkPad T430s .
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 interesting alternative. The excellent inputs and the familiar high-quality workmanship are a matter of course even in this slim scion of the T400 range.
Cons: Somewhat thicker and heavier than other ultrabooks, Weak speakers, Dark screen, Average battery life
