Summary: Screen quality is terrible. Fonts are fuzzy, and is not comfortable to look at for long periods of time. On the other hand, this thing is a beast. I installed a SSD in it and it starts in less than 15 seconds. I use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator with this, and it runs with no problems.
Summary: Yes, this computer is heavy. Not something you want to actually utilize as a portable computer on a daily basis. But it's built very sturdy, and the hardware has ran seamlessly for the 6 months I've owned it.
Summary: SUMMARY: The W530 is a T540p with 2 extra DIMM sockets. It is a major technology improvement over the 60 series Thinkpads, but may be heavier. RECOMMEND: If you are okay with the weight, this is a great laptop.
Summary: I bought this laptop for personal use, I wanted 16 GB Ram and asked customer care they gave me quick and complete details for upgrading the RAM I upgraded it to 24GB, its almost 6 month laptop performance is excellent. cons: 1.
Summary: My background: I'm a software engineer who needs a laptop for doing serious work for long hours. Ordered by importance, my shopping criteria are ergonomics, productivity and power. PROS: * FHD 1920x1080 screen in 15" with DPI set to 100% is the perfect viewing experience for me.
Summary: This is a good machine and kind of long term investment. I was in between buying a Lenovo or Dell (M4500 series), then decided to go with Lenovo. I think, this is great deal for the given memory upgrade.
Summary: Having used ThinkPad (mostly T series and some X series) for more than a decade, I was a little disappointed with my last Thinkpad T500, which was my first one after Lenovo took over. It recently develop overheating problem and I couldn't solve it other than having a fan pointing at it.
Summary: I bought this for demanding software development under Linux and occasional gaming in Windows. It replaced my previous T60. It serves that purpose well, but certain small flaws prevent me from giving it 5 stars.
