5 out of 5 eggsSolid business laptop

Pros: Solid construction, decent performance.

Cons: factory image somewhat bloated, no Win 7 or Win 8 COA key/label

Other Thoughts: The system performs really well, now that I've replaced the stock boot disk with a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD, moved the 500GB boot disk to the second drive bay, replacing the optical drive with an OEM ultrabay adapter. Will upgrade RAM to 8GB or more eventually. I'd like to do a clean Win 7 install with license key extracted from system but have a feeling it not be allowed during activation. The system runs fine but the idea of over 110 processes just seems to bloated; my other Lenovo T61 (with clean load and only essential drivers, etc) runs at 75 processes.
I was concerned that the HD screen 1600x900 might now be bright or crisp enough and was ready to order a 1920x1080 FHD panel to replace it with, but the 1600x900 panel is fine; it's pretty bright seeing as it is an LED panel.
I'm happy I ought a T530 and not the new T540 - I don't like the new keyboard layout on the T540 models; the keypad is moved too far left on the T540 to make room for the new numeric keypad. I don't need a numeric keypad.
The laptop seems lighter than my old T61 but not flimsy. The system is designed to be repaired and serviced (unlike many new thin and light models)_ and the service manual can be downloaded easily from Lenovo.
I like that I can run either Windows 7 or Windows 8 on this machine given the timing of when I bought it. I'm not a huge fan of Windows 8 but like that I can run it if I want to. This model came with Windows 7 64 bit installed and Windows 8 restore disks. You can build recovery media from the Windows 7 install using a supplied utility and the optical drive. I chose to save a disk image of the Windows 7 install right away, that way I can aggressively remove bloatware and unnecessary Lenovo utilities without fear.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good screen, but a little heavy

Pros: The display is pretty good, and the laptop is faster and more efficient than my old Thinkpad X201. The battery life is about 7 hours, which is good enough for me. I like the sturdy chassis and strong hinges; this laptop can probably withstand some abuse. I like having the power cable connect on the back rather than having it stick out the side.

Cons: The screen is actually bigger than what I really needed. I think I should've bought a T430 because the extra two inches of screen size increase the weight of the laptop by about half a pound. I miss the lighter weight of the X201.

The new type of keyboard feels so different than the other Thinkpads I've had, and I don't like how the keys aren't as responsive. The locations of the PgUp/PgDown/Home/End keys are annoying, but I'm getting used to it.

Other Thoughts: Since the T430 and T530 are about the same price, I thought the extra screen size made the T530 a better deal. Now I'm not as sure because I don't really need a DVD burner. Still, my T530 does everything I want it to, and the price was okay.

So if you don't need a touchscreen, and you don't mind a little extra weight, this is a pretty good laptop.
