So So

supertechy, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: Not overly impressed, sold it and bought a T430 instead and much happier. T430 with same specs runs faster lol. This T530 has aluminum heatsink ribs but the T430 has copper ones. No brainer. Fan on this T530 ran a lot and noisy compared to the T430 which has a smaller fan mind you, quiet and less often on T430.

Meh. It's so, so...

Novelty Seeker, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: It pains me to not be able to give this product five stars. Heck, even four! I bought my first Lenovo in 2008. I still have it and it works great. After I migrated to a sit stand/treadmill desk combo, my wife took it over. I still needed a basic laptop and knew that for me, it was a Lenovo or nothing. So you can imagine how excited I was when I came across this one at 50% off! It turns out that my joy was short lived. There's a couple of issues with this thing.

Nice screen size, nice placement of speakers, abysmally bad keyboard

Chip Dawes, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: I got this as a work computer replacing an X220. This is a nice step up from the X220 in terms of screen size, memory capacity and disk size. The speakers are a vast improvement over the X220 - they are aimed up (not down like the X220) so you can actually hear them. The sound quality is crap compared to my 5 year old personally owned HP notebook, but its good for a Lenovo. This is a workstation, not a media computer.

OK but heavy

  • Summary: Feels much heavier than expected but I like the fact that it has all the accessories required built-in.

Awesome looking lap top, shipped with dead pixels

Zachary T. Maltais, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: First impressions sans the dead pixels (returning as we speak) this is a solidly built laptop and I love the new keyboard style. A shame I couldn't use it right out of the box, I will give a thorough review after I get a replacement.

Fairly underwhelming except for the optional HD antiglare display

Schizophriend, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: No major failures yet but the shortcomings of this model (T530 2359, Win 7, 320GB 7200rpm) are almost too numerous to list. Based on my 15+ years of PC user experience, I find the laptop somewhat missing both in hardware design and in performance. Lenovo's bloatware and customer service are also far from flawless - for instance, important limitations of the model and manufacturer's international warranty do not appear even in "small print" but rather require extensive...

Really Mad

sciencemajor, Tesco
7 January 2014
  • Summary: As a science major, I need an integrated camera and it was not until a couple months later that I realized this computer did not have it. Overall, it is a good computer but the picture clearly shows a camera and the description talks about it as well. I love how it functions but I'm really irritated that they won't do anything about replacing the computer when they screwed up.

Probleme mit WiFi und USB

A. Schmitz "Buecherwurm", Amazon
1 November 2014
  • Summary: Mein Lenovo Thinkpad E540 hat ein wenig andere Spezifikationen, als dieses Gerät!!! Ich habe wenig Ahnung von PC's und Laptops oder besser gesagt ich bin ein Nutzer, die Technik muss laufen - ich möchte nicht erst Programmierer, Informatiker oder sonst was lernen, um mit meiner Technik zurecht zu kommen. Ich habe mich schlau gemacht und dachte mit einem Lenovo-Gerät einen guten Kauf zu tätigen.

23 June 2014
  • Excerpt: У меня Core i7-3520M без дискретной видяхи, но я сразу говорю что берите i5-3320M - он совершенно такойже но на 300 мегагерц медленее и все. Если брать для программирования и виртуализации, то стоимость сего ноута: 36к (тельце) + 8к(SSD Corsair Netron GTX) + 7k (16G DDR 1600 Corsair CL10).
  • Pros: Последний из могикан, если брать то только его пока есть, новые T540+ стали еще хуже по всем юзабильным показателям.
  • Cons: Клавиатура по сравнению с 520- не очень, но привыкнуть можно. Противоводной защиты клавиатуры НЕТЪ!!!. У меня на ноут пролиили стакан, до самого синего экрана считал, что никаких проблем быть не может и не делал как обычно полагается быструю выемку питания. Сгорел, отнес в гарантию, поменяли, считаю что мне повезло что была вода, могли сказать, что по моей вине. (на 500-м я работал под моросящим дождем, клавой хлюпал) Когда разобрал я понял, что они убрали весь полиэт...

Top Hardware Crap Software

maxbit, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: Zum Positiven: Performante Hardware Lange Akku laufzeit (zur Zeit noch 8-9h, nach 3 Monaten betrieb 7-8h) Durchschnittliche lade Zeiten 30min - 1h. Das Negative: Die vorinstallierte Windows 7 (Windows 8 Downgrade) Installation ist milde ausgedrückt Dünnpfiff vom feinsten. Mit diesem System ist der Laptop gleichschnell wie mein alter T40 mit einem Core 2 Duo und 2 GB Ram (Win 7) und meiner Oma an der Tastatur.
