Is it all differences? :smileysurprised:

 

Well, but in this event rather W530 should cost (a bit) more, than T530 and not otherwise, as it is actually on the market. Do you mean, than there is no any rational reason for such market pricing?

 


I was just adding to what ExJamJus said, i wasn't discussing price disparity between the W530 and T530.

Well, I'll try to ask another way.  Has T530 model any advantages (besides a bit stronger processor) over W530?

Thanks!

W530 can be maxed with XM quad core i7, which is not something you can get with the T530.

T530 I believe has the old non backlit keyboard, which many users seem to feel is a better keyboard.

The real issue here is that the T530 is limited to just 16GB of memory, it only has two slots. The W530 has four slots and can handle 32GB of memory.

Look at page 88 here, http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/tabook.pdf

Also note that effective March 2013 that some T530 models have been withdrawn from the USA market. Footnote at bottom of page .... Often when a model has been discontinued there is a spike in the price for the last ones in stock.
