          Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 6271-56U 14" Notebook Computer (Black):

          Very nicely constructed, but have encountered multiple problems with drivers, Lenovo included software, and OS (Win 7) upgrades. At this point (two weeks post delivery) I still have issues with applications not launching and the power management software shutting the display off while actively using the computer.

          Granted, much of the blame may be assigned to the Windows OS, but on a business class machine, integration issues of this sort are inexcusable.

          I may yet return the unit.

          Comments about Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 6271-56U 14" Notebook Computer (Black):

          I purchased this computer because it was one of the last with Windows 7 and the company was highly recommended by the B&H representative who helped me pick it out.

          The first few weeks I owned it the hard drive had to be checked for consistency every time I logged the computer on and restarted it for updates, so I had to manually install updates, update backups and software checks, etc.

          However, as soon as I got it updated, this computer has been PHENOMINAL. I love the 4-6 hour battery life, I love the portability and durability, I love the keys and the trackball scrolling. Was pleasantly surprised to find that it had a fingerprint scanner, too!

          The only true complaint I have is the lack of a number keypad. It makes using the keyboard take a little getting used to, and I miss it, especially when I have to use numbers for bank accounts and college log-ins, but otherwise, I'm very impressed!
