  • Thanks for this; are there any other button combinations of this sort? I have a T430s.

    • I think these 4 combinations are the only four combinations that you can use for the T430s. The later Lenovo ThinkPad will also get another shortcut key, i think it is either the End or Insert, but those keys are present on the W530.

  • I purchased a W530 and I must say I Lenovo has gone down hill fast. The screen is smaller and of lower resolution than my T61p. Lenovo support told me the screen resolution was higher and asked me to make a purchase online right then an there. They insisted the screen resolution was higher even after I told Lenovo it wasn’t. Then their rep tried to say it was because he didn’t know what WUXGA was. If he didn’t know what WUXGA was how did he blurt out the W530 resolution is higher? Status lights are missing. Keys are missing. Linux driver support appears less. The logo is bigger though. If you like the ThinkPad logo you are in luck!
