So, picked up one of these to replace my E5430. Have it running with my 480 GB SSD in the 2.5" slot, and a 128 GB mSATA SSD in the mSATA slot. As well, it still has an optical drive.

Overall, great laptop. Only disappointment is that the auction said it was a 1600x900, and it's a 1366x768. So I tested and the cable is, surprisingly, the HD+/FHD cable, but the LCD is only a HD LCD. Found a used, but good condition HD+ LCD on ebay for $45 shipped, so next week this WILL be an HD+/1600x900 LCD.

Very fast, being Haswell, the last generation of M processors. Has an i5-4300M, one of the most powerful mobile i5's ever released until the very recently released kaby refresh quad core hyperthreaded i5's, although it's a 37W chips compared to the 15W chips of the various U types. 16 GB ram, the dual drives, it's only got a 802.11N wifi card right now (didn't swap it over from the 5430), but I ordered a Qualcomm Atheros 802.11AC card for it (want another Ath10K card instead of another Intel) that should be here in about 2 weeks.

If anyone's looking for a reliable, great performance if older laptop, my E5430 is going to be listed in the BST forum (and it comes with an SSD too!!)!!

Got my HD+ LCD in. Can now use the E6440 off the dock. Great laptop. VERY fast with the dual SSD's. Little lighter than the E5430, but not much difference. Exactly the same LCD. quite happy with it.

Now have the Atheros 802.11AC + BT 4.0 card in. Found out there's some issues in the 4.15 kernel so both Arch and Fedora won't load the drivers for the bluetooth for this card, so swapped it over to Debian. Working fantastic. Dual SSD's, 1600x900 resolution, 802.11AC, for an older machine (5 cpu generations old now), it's really running fantastic.
