Pros: I'm purchasing these laptops to act as quick access machines for our warehouse employees and also to serve as temp machines/travel laptops. Them being so inexpensive was hard to pass up, and knowing of the quality of Lenovo/IBM Thinkpads, I wanted to give them a shot.
Cons: Lenovo, this is directed at you! Stop loading your PC's with garbage! If you get this machine, just reload it. I didn't even bother using the utilities that came with, I took a USB Boot Disc with Windows 7 Pro, formatted the drive, and started from scratch. Windows missed the Audio drivers, SD card reader, and the USB 3.0 drivers. You will also want to load the lenovo comm manager from their site. After that, the machine was as bare as it gets, and all the hot keys worked.
Other Thoughts: This machine is meant to be cheap laptop, and performs well at that task, a little better than expected. It sure beats pays $1300 for a Latitude E6430, and these are so cheap that instead of paying for a 4 year warranty I will just keep a few extra of these machines in the back in case one dies. Once you image these with a base of Windows, they fly and offer plenty of bang for the buck

Great laptop at a decent price
Pros: Inexpensive compared to most.
Cons: Not very rugged, but that's not what this model is known for.
Other Thoughts: I set up our whole sales team with these laptops, and would recommend them to anyone looking for standard functionality, with a few bonus options. USB3 is nice, as are the HD graphics.

Great Laptop. Unexpectedly poor experience.
Pros: Excellent laptop and great value.
Other Thoughts: My Mother needed to purchase two laptops for my little brothers in college, I of course think, "the egg, Lenovvo". So that's what I recommended and my Mother purchased them.

Good for traveling with a 14" screen if you don't like the smaller displays.
