Now, I already had an extra 4GB SODIMM and a spare 256GB Samsung 850 Pro sitting in a drawer, so I put those in the unit. With those installed, it's running pretty well. Also, the battery is OEM and lasts a long time.
I looked on eBay before purchasing, but there's just so many variables there. Units are cheaper, but a lot of times don't include parts, especially good batteries, and I've read the T430 may not play nice with cheap aftermarket batteries. It just seemed like a higher risk to buy there. With Microcenter I can return for a full refund in 15 days and there's a 90 day warranty, for whatever that's worth.
I did look at later models, but I had a dock and several power adapters for the T430 from my previous T and X series. So I stuck with the T430.
The above was my rationale. Thoughts? Could I/should I make a different choice next time?
