Time for a photo update. Got 16GB of RAM into my W530 today. She's running good. T420 is still going everywhere with me everyday and it's still a great little mobile workhorse.

These are my first Core i7 machines, I waited a long time to get them, ever since the first "i" series came out in 2010 been drooling over a Core i7. Still three generations behind but they do everything I could have ever wanted them to do. And the W530 is my first true quad core system. So happy with this machine. These are my third and fourth Thinkpad's. Went through all of college getting my IT degree with a T410i and that machine was great till I sold it. (regret it) Then a T61 when I was wanting another Thinkpad, (gave it to my mom). I don't see myself not buying more Thinkpad's in the future. I have less than a grand invested into these machines. Quite a steal honestly.




Thanks for looking.

Excellent computers and I was considering the W530 for a while, although I might opt for the older W520 to get the proper keyboard full height keys type that is not chiclet. However I currently have nine Thinkpads in the house, so I need to sell a few before I can justify another! :D
