Thinkpad fans stay away from this one

Overall: I am using this laptop since past 3 and half months.
Lenovo had launched Thinkpad Edge series to target market of small / medium businesses, to attract people who can not afford Thinkpad T, X series, but still want Thinkpad. Edge series is definitely priced less than T and X series but at a compromise on built quality.
Following are 4 main reason people go for Thinkpad with points I give to Thinkpad Edge 430:
1) Built quality (1/5) - Not of Thinkpad quality
2) Work horse Performance (3/5) - Over all performance is acceptable.
3) Thinkpad Support and warranty (1/5) - This comes with 1 year Accidental Damage Protection. Read more about ADP on lenovo site.
4) Ultra-Navigation Stick (2/5) - Very hard
Overall performance of this laptop is acceptable but being a thinkpad fan, I personally feel that there is nothing like Thinkpad in this laptop except Name.
