Lenovo Thinkpad T430
The Lenovo T430 2342 14" Notebook Computer in black is a solid performer as far as notebooks go. With a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 3210M processor for muscle, 4GB of DDR3 1600 MHz RAM for speed and a 500GB 7200 rpm hard drive for storage, it can easily replace any older laptop in the house or office.
Providing the visuals are a 14" HD 1366 x 768 LED backlit widescreen display and the Intel HD 4000 graphics processor. With 200nits of brightness, an anti-glare screen and a 16:9 aspect ratio (so your movies and videos are presented in their original cinematic format), this also makes a formidable multimedia laptop.
It also includes an integrated DVD reader/writer to play your movies or burn files to disc. You can also connect other peripherals through the USB 3.0/2.0 ports, or connect exterior monitors via the VGA and DisplayPort connections. To further enhance your multimedia experience, this unit includes integrated speakers (2x 1W each) with Dolby Advanced Audio v2. For networking, you have your choice of either a wired Gigabit LAN RJ-45 input or wireless 802.11 b/g/n on the integrated Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 PPCIe Half Mini card. There's an optional upgrade to advance to PCIe WWAN for a larger area of wireless coverage.
Although the unit ships with the Windows 7 Pro 64-bit operating system, an upgrade disc with Windows 8 is included with purchase. It is also configured with a host of software, including Password Manager, ThinkVantage System Update, Lenovo Cloud Storage by SugarSync and Microsoft Office 2010 preloaded (you must purchase the product key to activate).
The T430 is a solid mid-range laptop with the power and speed to handle your day-to-day needs and multitasking.
