Man Writes The Most Detailed Thinkpad T430u Review World Has Ever Seen

This guy here twitter.com/lead_org, has written what can only be described as one of the most detailed notebook reviews the world has ever seen on the Thinkpad T430u ultrabook over at his website http://www.thinkscopes.com.

It is also at the moment the only T430u review, at least that I've seen.

If you can forgive a few typos, you will find a lot of detailed information about the T430u. He is definitely a Thinkpad enthusiast, but he's also a very level headed guy, and isn't shy about giving criticism where criticism is due.

If you are looking for a decent ultrabook, with a non-touch screen, for around $600 to $700 USD, the Thinkpad T430u looks like a pretty good one.
