Issues
Battery only has 28.9Wh at a full charge. The battery capacity for a new battery is 66.6Wh. Very little charge. Replacing battery is a bit tricky compared to other notebooks as the battery is inside the laptop.
Right 1/4 inch of track pad seems to be a dead zone, not sure if this is the case with all 5830T's or just this particular one (we only have 1 to test).
Case shows signs of wear.
