I am going to buy my first Laptop. Used. Lenovo Thinkpad W530.
Is it good for Photo Editing and Video Editing specially?
.
And Did this laptop has any issues or anything that might be a drawback?
.
Thank you.

I know I am kinda late here, but I have a W530 with 24GB RAM + 1TB SATA SSD, a 128GB MSATA SSD, and a 2TB HDD in place of the optical drive. I bought mine new, because I hate the MacBook Pro's lack of durability, (that's the computer that was recommended to me) and the ThinkPad keyboards are the best in the class. My W530 is used daily for video editing, light gaming, photo editing, and audio production, and it is quiet, powerful, and fast. An SSD really makes a huge difference!

All in all, I think the W530 is one of the best laptops to buy used if you are looking for a workstation. I am typing this up on my actual W530, while exporting a video and streaming Spotify to my Bluetooth speakers. Best investment I have ever made!

Happy buying!

I have a W520, no issues with it, and I dropped it at one point off a cart. Has a small crack in it about 5 mm long where other systems would have cracked open and been dead. Those things are built like tanks. Only thing you may want to do is get a solid state drive for it, the hard drive is the most likely thing to fail, and an SSD will make the system fly.
