    I gotta quit reading the Lenovo forum. There are some scary threads there about the T440s and a lot of problems.

    Do.not.want manufacturing or QC issues on the 440p line.

    It definitely makes gaming feel smoother than with the iGPU. I threw Minecraft on for a quick test because of how taxing it is on non-gaming machines. With iGPU I was getting around 120 FPS, and 200 with the 730m. I need to rerun the Futuremark benchmarks after the latest update since they had trouble identifying CPU & GPU before, which should be fixed now. But I trust real gaming much more as a test than benchmark software. I'll load more games on... What should I try on it? (I have like 600+ games on Steam)

    Super Street Fighter IV please! And Dark Souls. Those are the most important to me.

    That's pretty much true of most forums. People come to complain about various issues, and not too many post positive experiences.

    Keep your eyes open and fingers crossed.

    As for the LF, I've been on it for six years now and have yet to see a ThinkPad - and that means ANY ThinkPad - that people were not complaining about, one way or another.

    Follow your gut and common sense, that's all one can do.

    Happy shopping.

    Yes forums definitely serve to amplify problems. When I post message on forums like this it's usually because I'm either looking for information or looking for a solution to a problem. And even if I'm looking for information, very often it's information about potential problems I'm after :D

    Agreed. Every time i've seen a "satisfied user", they showed their satisfaction by not posting XD

    My order just shipped, a day ahead of the estimated date. Looks like I forgot to pay for expedited shipping, though; estimated delivery date 12/23. But before Christmas, so, bonus.
