I've been needing to upgrade my W500 so I've been looking at W530's because they're the last model to incorporate an express card slot (needed for a better sound card) and retained the classic UltraBay design. I just won an BIN offer on eBay ($450) for a really clean W530 with a I7-3940XM processor, FHD display (1920x1080), Nvidia K2000, 256Gb SSD, 16 Gb ram (not sure if 2 or 4 slot)
While I researched which of the W series Thinkpad I wanted the one resource I failed to peruse is the Thinkpad forum (slaps forehead). However, from what I'm now reading I don't think I'll be disappointed. Merry Christmas to me!
2.5" SSD is the economical sweet spot nowadays, best "bang" for the buck for SSD performance...
Wishing you FUN with your 'new' ThinkPad W530 !
Merry Christmas to you too
