I recently bought a Thinkpad T430. Planning to move to a good, stable Linux.

Has anyone installed 12.04.2 on T430 ?

Hows the heat and battery life with it?

My primary goal is to have a good stable Linux system as a base OS on which I can install other stuff like VMWare (And inside it I will try out other OSes).

As mentioned before, battery life is important to me (With the preloaded Win Pro 7 I get about 5 hours). How will it be with 12.04.2 ?

What about the heat? I want to try Linux without frying my laptop.

Hope I am not asking too much, but will the backlight keyboard work as well?

Anyone currently using it on a T430?

Please let me know.
