    Good review :) I think you should have mentioned weight, since one of the disadvantages of the aluminum unibody is that it makes it heavy compared to other materials such as ABS and Carbon fiber construction. Also when mentioning the Fn + media keys thing, I think it would have been worth noting that the ThinkPad is geared toward business use rather than media, etc. And I noticed that when you compared the heat, the Macbook seemed to be blocking the T430’s exhaust vent which instinctively gives me doubts as to the accuracy. But in any case, good review. Perhaps one other thing to test is how much the display wobbles on a shaky surface (i.e. If you were using it on a moving train).

    Thanks!

      Thanks for the feedback Glenwing, I totally forgot to include the weight comparison and certainly should have, just for the record the ThinkPad T430 weighs around 4.8lbs starting out while the MacBook Pro 13″ weighs in at 4.5lbs, so about the same but the MBP has a smaller screen.

    you forgot battery run time, speakers, webcam, the fact that thinkpad has rollcage. warranties, reliability, and as noted from someone else I do think you should retest the temp– my thinkpad runs much cooler than what your showing.
