To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Laptop is actually very good, but, the seller (Laptop Experience) used a 9 cell battery which is not what Lenovo included when they sold the T430 new. I would have been thrilled that I received a 9 cell upgrade, but, it isn't an upgrade in battery capacity because there is not much life left in the battery so I have this overweight/oversize battery and nothing to gain from it.
If you are going to use a bad battery, at least make it the 6 cell.
Purchased this previously-owned laptop from Skytech LLC. Laptop arrived on time, package was totally intact and in excellent condition, laptop was not only clean but pristine, in such excellent condition that it looked brand-new and totally untouched -- clean, shiny, ready to go. It booted instantly and I was able to install all the apps I needed for my small business. Have not had any trouble with this computer whatsoever, knock on wood. Love the sound -- streaming videos from YouTube, the sound is great. All office apps function at high level. No complaints whatsoever about this business machine. Talk about value for money -- this was a great purchase. I strongly recommend Lenovo laptops as well as this excellent seller -- Skytech LLC -- both companies deliver the goods, really. Would most definitely purchase the product again, also would most definitely purchase from this seller.
Lenovo laptops of this generation were known for being more or less rock solid, and even used and refurbed this one lives up to that reputation. There were some minor blemishes on the outer case and keyboard, but the screen was perfect, keyboard was very good, touch pad and the red mouse joystick thing in the keyboard worked perfectly. Wifi system worked. Was not loaded up with bloatware the way some are. It was purchased for a local charity as a general purpose computer for employees to use for web browsing, email, etc, and for general office work, and it has worked with no problems since we got it.
