4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Keyboard is terrific - Better than I expected from all the reviews I saw. Most said the keyboard was good, but I think it is great. It's very quiet, made of a very comfortable material, and very easy to type on.

Trackpad is good - Responsive and very Macbook-like. Multitouch is good for scrolling.

No fingerprints - I absolutely despise fingerprints on my laptop, and thankfully this is not a problem. Though it does get small smudges on the top somehow, it's not nearly as annoying as fingerprints.

Elegant - Looks good without being flashy like the ASUS UX31. There is an attractive simplicity to it. Color is slightly darker than the images.

Speed - very fast. No complaints.

Games - I have some games from the Humble Indie Bundle I like to play, and they run fine. Star Wars Battlefront 2 runs well. Sins of a Solar Empire runs well. Minecraft doesn't run well, though. Just games to pass the time, really (that aren't programmed in Java).

Cons: Utterly moronic partitioning - ~80 GB is given to you, ~25 GB is used on a wasteful D drive labelled "Lenovo." It contains drivers and apps, and I expect that it is also meant to contain backups. I don't plan on making backups on the laptop itself, not with only 128 GB. You cannot easily repartition the drives, and you must have a very high tech level to do so. I managed to pull it off, but not within Windows.

Some bloat - Some annoying software comes preinstalled. I'd reinstall Windows 7 if I could, but I don't have a CD drive or an ISO.

Thinness - While it is technically about the same thickness of the UX31 and the Macbook Air, it doesn't LOOK like it. It LOOKS a little thicker, but a side by side comparison will show that it is not much. What's important to me, however, is how it looks. Just something to note.

Resolution is rather low - It is somewhat low... compared to other computers, namely the UX31. This is a trade-off for stability, however.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is input strong - the keyboard and trackpad are solid and comfortable.

The ASUS UX31 is output strong - the screen, sound, and style are slightly better.

By choosing this computer you are really choosing stability over style.

Ultimately I wanted a slick laptop that is good for school, and programmer (input) friendly. I think I found it.

Do not buy from Lenovo's site! Not only are they more expensive than Newegg, but they also charge tax! Go ahead and calculate the extra tax (say, 8%) on a $1200 purchase. I bought this computer here for $1050 flat. Shipping is also ~4 weeks faster.

Linux works on it, though you will obviously have to sacrifice your multitouch keyboard for it. The ASUS UX31 has problems with Linux.

I also wasn't fascinated with the ultrabooks at CES, so I decided waiting for another ultrabook wasn't worth it.

What is everyone's obsession with backlit keyboards and SD card readers? Neither had any weight whatsoever for me....
