    Mine is in the same status which makes me worries especially that it changed from "order processed" to "order received'!! Please, keep us updated about orders.

    May I ask you why did you choose th get the 500GB 5400rpm and did not get the free upgrade faster 7200rpm?

    I have a 256GB SSD that I plan on putting into my T430 (see sig) and I wanted the power savings of 5400rpm when I drop that 500GB into an external enclosure :)

    Oh, that makes sense now!

    Guys, finally the Lenovo unboxing of T430 is live

    Lenovo Unboxed: ThinkPad T430 laptop - YouTube

    After watching it, really?! I am not sure if this was about T430 or about the history and manufacturing of Thinkpads in general!

    all i'm interested in is whether they've used better panels this time, my t420's viewing angles are really horrible and i'd like to be able to replace it with something adequate

    NVIDIA N13P-NS1 Optimus Graphics with 2GB DDR3 Memory

    What exact is that, NVS 5400m (it have 1 Gb of memory)?

    ymi i think screen will be the same... But we have to wait for some good reviews.

    T420: 13.4" x 9.05" x [1.18" - 1.20"]
    340mm x 229.8mm x [29.9mm – 30.4mm]

    T430: 13.8” x 9.13” x 1.18”
    350.5mm x 232mm x 29.9mm


    So the T430 is a little bit lengthier and wider, but more uniform in thickness

    Same type of screens being used, you could look into the X230 with IPS screen if you want great viewing angles.
