Lenovo ThinkPad W530 review

 

For many office types, the combination of Lenovo, ThinkPad, and 15in screen will be the sweet spot for a business laptop.

The Lenovo ThinkPad W530 2447 is packed with useful ports and high-specification components. Build quality is more than adequate, but more bendy than we remember of ThinkPad workhorses. The out-of-the-box software experience is quite laughable but...

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad W530 Mobile Workstation Laptop
