        Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 3259-7CU 15.6" Notebook Computer:

        It is the second E530 I purchased here on B&H. Use to be we were all Apple site, but since Apple dropped creative professionals and killed Final Cut, we dropped Apple almost entirely. We still have one Apple Mini box for few things we keep running on OS X, but otherwise we fully migrated to Windows 7 and Adobe Creative Cloud. These e530 laptops are HEAVILY used machines, doing everything from design to rendering. I purchased here on B&H two Seagate 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop drives and very happy with this storage solution. I must mentioning that Lenovo provided software is SUPERB, very useful, very robust and helpful. I have to apologize to Lenovo for my rant about their software in first review. The "Enhanced Experience 3" is great. I deleted only Norton Antivirus, rest of the software stays. This machine supports 16Gb of RAM, and I purchased here on B&H 16Gb of Crucial and installed myself. Now thus thing is super fast both on system and graphics. We purchased Lenovo USB 3.0 port replicator for $179 that connects to two external monitors, drives and network. The laptop is always cold, nice looking and solidly build. Nothing is cracking or shaking. We are going to buy few more units. As a small business, we would say, it is absolutely a great buy at any price.

              Purchased it about week ago. Very well maid, study, robust, great device. It is really pleasure to use, super fast, very great. I have go through usual routine of removing Lenovo garbage applications, and cleaning up after its attempt to install disgusting Norton antivirus, I use free and great Microsoft Security Essentials instead. But otherwise this comp is great I probably going to buy two more for our business. This device feels so cool! The only thing I wish it would have is a dock station.

              I was really excited to get this laptop to start at school. It has great configuration and priced right. My excitement turned into big disappointment when the laptop did not even switch on. No response on connecting to power and trying to switch on (DOA). Called Lenovo support and started going through the rituals of plugging / unplugging, removing/putting back battery but no help. Next came the steps to pull out RAM and hard drive. At this I just stopped and promptly contacted for a return. BHP took care of the rest. I am recovering from the shock of starting my school with a dead laptop. Hope rest of my school experience turns out better.
