Pros: Pros: Its a thinkpad so it has less bad features than the rest of the awful laptops out there
The keyboard feels pretty nice, along with the thinkpad pointer.
Cons: The laptop comes with bloatware and an unusable Windows installation. It comes with 2G ram in an era when 4 is standard. The touchpad is horrible and is only usable if you change about 20 settings in the thinkpad driver. Of course, the drivers can only be found in Google;I did not find them easily on lenovo/thinkpad website.
The cd drive feels cheaper than the hard plastic used to package my device. It will break after 50 uses.
Other Thoughts: I learned that one does not simply return a laptop to newegg. Their hard line policy would be easier to stomach if products like the E430c were not so poorly made;made for the dump.
I installed windows on this thing and am currently fuming because the fan is revving up and down despite being cool to the touch. Of course, there is no fan control.
Apparently, you cant open a laptop from newegg to check it out. Apparently, you cant put a new copy of windows on it to actually try and use it either(the
original install is unusable).
