This does seem pretty good. Any other thoughts?
I would buy one if it had a HDMI port.

Well I bit.

Went through the cash-back link, works out to about $38-$40 coming back depending if they credit pre or post tax. If you do any upgrades, it would better to use the FNDEPP link as the L430DEAL applies discount to upgrades as well, whereas the cash back link only applies discount to base system.

It does have a DisplayPort with audio - $8 adapter DP-HDMI at Monoprice. Many manufactures are moving to this format it seems.

FYI
Anyone interested in the T530, the default is Windows 8. if you select Windows 7, which is supposed not change anything, actually reduces the base cost by $40.00. So slight prices error that will likely go through. For me, this was a better deal because I wanted the smaller form factor.

I figured out why it reduced the cost by $40, the T530 comes with backlit keyboard and when you choose windows 7, it gets rid of that option and gives you a regular keyboard and if you want backlit, you have to upgrade it for $40.

Great Canadian Rebate, you will have to register on their website and click on the lenovo link to get to their website.

On redflagdeals you have you click on the Cashback tab and click on the Lenovo Canada store icon. It will say you are on your way to earn 4% cash back and you click on the shop button.

So once I click it will automatically track everything? Even if I leave the referral page?

Yeppers, it will take you to the site and track your purchase as long as you don't leave the site after it transfers you there.
