This product arrived at my door within 5 days of ordering it--good time for free shipping! I shopped around for months, and for the price, getting a Solid State Drive, 16 GB of memory, a dual core i5, and the Lenovo ThinkPad reputation for reliability is practically a steal! Battery is in good condition, lasts ~4 hours of normal use, which is respectable even for a brand new machine. Windows 10 setup went smoothly (I work in tech support myself, so I appreciate not having to troubleshoot at home too). The keyboard on these T430s is great too. Almost zero cosmetic damage is amazing on a refurbished machine! I had a quick question for tech support, and the wait time was not bad. I would definitely recommend this product/ Joy Systems products to my friends!
I'm a big fan of Chromebooks, and this is my go-to travel laptop. It's compact and light, but the 11.6" screen is big enough to be legible. The Broadwell Celeron 3205U processor is one of the faster ones (significantly faster than the Bay Trail N2840 and similar processors), returning a Google Octane score in the 13000 range. Battery life is excellent, around 7-8 hours with moderate use. Build is nothing to write home about, but as with all Acer Chromebooks, the plastic feels sturdy. Keyboard could use a bit more tactile feedback, but it's still better than the standard Logitech keyboard I have on my PC. Speakers are pretty weak, which is not surprising--it's much better with Bluetooth speakers, or connected to the stereo system via Chromecast. If you're in the market for an 11.6" Chromebook, this is definitely one to look at. It can be a little hard to find, though--glad I found one at O.co!
Arrived on time. I turned it on and it's been running both Win-7 and Linux-mint 18 as dual boot. A great machine that I gave to a client so now thinking of getting another. Only disapointment was the SSD had lost about 10% from prior use/abuse.
