Cons: Weighs as much as a tank, no drive activity light
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my now-deceased netbook. I travel a lot and value durability, portability and battery life over performance, and I trust the Lenovo name -- have a ThinkPad T61 that is going on 5 yrs old and still humming along.
The X131E is very solidly built, and I think it will have no problem surviving life on the road. The screen is nice and bright (though sensitive to viewing angle). Mine came with Win7 and a Win8 upgrade; I installed Linux and most things worked out of the box, though I had to dig up Broadcomm drivers to get the wireless to work.
One caveat: This thing is HEAVY for such a small laptop. Heavier than my 6-cell netbook and much heavier than a MacBook Air. I'm sure my Mac friends will comment on this; I will suggest we bash the two laptops together as hard as we can and see which survives.
Dislikes: There are three power lights but no drive activity light, which is irksome. The touch pad is small, the pointer thingie works well but takes getting used to.
Likes: Everything else. Very happy that I bought it. Hope I'm not jinxing myself or the computer by saying that...
