The Lenovo Thinkpad T430 2344-BPU 14" Notebook Computer in black is a multimedia powerhouse. With a hefty 2.9GHz Intel Core i7 3520M processor with hyper-threading technology, 4GB of DDR3 1600 MHz RAM (upgradeable to 16GB) and a 500GB 7200 rpm hard drive, it already places itself in the high-end range for laptops.

But what sets it apart is the graphics configuration. The 14" HD+ 1600 x 900 LED backlit widescreen display and the Intel HD 4000 graphics processor pair up with an extra video card, the nVIDIA NVS 5400M (PCIe x16 card with 1GB of dedicated memory). The Optimus technology built into the CPU will auto switch between discrete and integrated graphics whether playing high-def content or just surfing the web. This cuts down on system-resource hogging, and allows for smoother, lag-free viewing and game playing. With 250nits 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 graphics setup is ideal for users looking for a little more juice in the visuals.

It also includes an integrated DVD reader/writer to play your movies or burn files to disc. You can 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 Advanced-N 6205 PPCIe Half Mini card. There's an optional upgrade to advance to PCIe WWAN for a larger area of wireless coverage. This model also comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 for even greater flexibility when connecting to peripheral devices.

Other nice features include a fingerprint reader for added security (along with a cable lock slot and hard drive password protection), and a 6-row 84-key backlit keyboard, perfect for low light situations like a darkened airplane cabin or late night gaming sessions. Although the unit ships with the Windows 7 Pro 64-bit operating system, an upgrade disc with Windows 8 is included with purchase. This laptop 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 2344-BPU is a formidable graphics and multimedia laptop, ideal for professionals that need clean, fast visuals or casual users that want more gaming muscle on their laptop.

        Comments about Lenovo Thinkpad T430 2344-BPU 14" Notebook Computer (Black):

        Twelve years ago, I had IBM loptop. I always felt that Lenovo f/k/a IBM is the best in loptops. After about a year ago, my hubby talked me into getting our child Toshiba and having horrifying experience with that, I do not see me changing my mind about Lenovo. I feel that this loptop is great for both games and homework. Love how comfortable it feels and it's not too heavy.

        Comments about Lenovo Thinkpad T430 2344-BPU 14" Notebook Computer (Black):

        Added in a mSATA 256gb SSD (M4 Crucial) and 16GB ram, this thing is a rocket. I being a long time Thinkpad fanboy was skeptical about the new keyboard but it's fantastic as well (love the backlit kb).

        Best bang for the buck in my opinion. Lenovo isn't quite IBM, but 90-95% isn't bad.

        Plays Hitman flawlessly as well (just wanted to test its video card). This is an added bonus (for when I want to avoid working).
