3 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop, with a numerous flaws

Pros: -Sufficiently sturdy construction
-2 USB 3.0 ports, one on each side of the laptop
-Great battery life
-Powerful CPU
-Reasonably good Quadro K1100M
-High quality keyboard is easy to type with.
-Keyboard layout is mostly normal, with a few oddities such as a Print Screen button and the FN key outside of CTRL.

Cons: -Product keys for Windows 8 are no longer printed on the laptop. This is a MASSIVE step backwards and it does not automatically activate Windows, it ONLY works with the Lenovo recovery disks.
-Absolute NIGHTMARE to reinstall. Took 4.5 hours on a Samsung EVO SSD using Lenovo system recovery disks. Installing Windows 8.1 from Microsoft's disk took 12 minutes.
-Neither one installed all the drivers necessary for operation.
-Sound card regularly makes loud popping sounds on startup, resuming from standby, and after a period of time when no sound is being produced. Poor quality audio codec installed, does not even have noise cancellation for the built in microphone!
-No MIC IN. Literally WHY?
-1080p Display is not great. Feels like a cheap TN panel, sharp but low color quality (even lower than my previous laptops' glossy TN panel). Gives me a headache when using the laptop for more than an hour.
-Poor touchpad design, entire touchpad is depressed when clicking, and there is lots of failures to detect the intended press (left or right). On top of that, there is no option to automatically disable the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in, so you have to disable it in Device Manager every time you plug in a mouse.
-Touchpad is not centered on the laptop, so your left hand is the only option when using it.
