My Lenovo Thinkpad T430 is here and today you guys are going to get a first look at it. I bought this for $129 off eBay as a replacement for my IBM T60. The T60 is a great laptop but it is not capable of mobile video editing, this T430 should allow me to edit 1080p video at 60fps on the go. System specs include an Intel I5 3230m dual core processor (4 threads), 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 1366X768 display and integrated Intel graphics. In this video I will unbox the T430, throw a 120GB ADATA SSD into it, and run both Windows 10 and Ubuntu Mate on the laptop. There were a couple minor things that I did not like about the T430 such as the USB 3.0 port placement, keyboard spacing, and the quality, while highly durable, is definitely less than that of my T60. Overall though, using the system has been an enjoyable experience thus far and I can’t wait to get the money in to throw 16GB of DDR3 into the laptop so I can edit some video on it!
