Summary: I bought a used one and it looks great. The only thing is that I actually didn't see a detailed hardware configuration info of the "used" laptops. So when I get the laptop, I just realize that laptop has no Bluetooth and Finger print sensor but never mind, I can live with it.
Summary: Pros - so customizable, you can upgrade everything it includes 3 free ram slots and 1 mSata interface for ssd - keyboard back light work like a charm - it has cool a littke lamp on the screen - always on USB port, for charging devices even when the pc is off. - battery last 6 hours average.
Currently its stable and by far the best machine I ever used

Summary: Had initial glitches with this laptop. It crashed couple of times. Currently its stable and by far the best machine I ever used. I wanted to order new W540 but the new trackpad is huge and highly sensitive. I had difficultly using the new machine just because of its keyboard and trackpad.
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.
