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.
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

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.
Fairly underwhelming except for the optional HD antiglare display

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...
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.
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.
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.
Итог такой же как и с Т520: если найдете подешевле (800-1200) - можно брать.

Summary: Когда-то писал отзыв про T520, теперь кратко про 530. Клава: если вы работаете с текстом, то наверняка часто пользуетесь блоком Home-End-Insert-Delete-PgUp-PgDn. Я все еще пытаюсь привыкнуть к новой раскладке, но тут вроде-бы без шансов. Испортили короче. Шум: без нагрузки пропеллер внутри молчит совсем, в 520 немного крутился. Зато под нагрузкой 530 шумит чуть сильнее и противнее чем 520. Экран: Пытался найти ICC профили под убунту, так и не получилось.
Summary: questo nuovo portatile chiamato thinkpad t530 24295xg marcato Lenovo offre oltre a prestazioni che non vanno assolutamente sottovalutate, tutta una serie di nuove tecnologie che si stanno diffondendo solo da poco. intanto ha un lettore di impronte digitali, cosa veramente utilissima, se si vogliono salvaguardare i propri dati lasciati all'interno del computer stesso, e poi ha l'ultimo processore di casa intel, appunto l'i7 3520m.
