1 out of 5 eggsMajor wifi issues

Pros: Decent look

Cons: If you google you will find tons of topics discussing how wifi is horrible on this laptop, how Lenovo knows but chooses to do nothing and some proposed fixes. I did see those report before purchasing but I decided that if I had problems I would install a small wifi adapter on the USB port and disable the one that comes with it. Boy what a mistake. A year later I have tried every fix on the internet, I have disabled the one that came with it and install an external USB one (best rated one) and today I even open the laptop and physically removed the wifi card from the laptop. NOTHING WORKS. I am out of ideas/options at this point and I have a laptop with MAJOR wifi connectivity issues. I have run out of ideas on what to try next. STAY AWAY. I will not be buying another Lenovo product that is for sure.

2 out of 5 eggsWould NOT recommend

Pros: fast boot-up (thanks to SSD), good battery life, light and thin

Cons: wifi adapter has major connectivity issues, touchpad is faulty

Other Thoughts: I should have checked the lenovo support forums before buying and recommend you do as well. The wifi adapter has known issues, and Lenovo continues to distribute these laptops with the faulty adapters and there's no fix in sight. To get repair/diagnostics you have to mail the laptop to Texas with a 2 week turnaround. Can't do that if you need the laptop for work... I just ordered an external wifi adapter just so I can have some stable connection.

The touchpad has issues as well. It constantly has issues and the swipe/scroll feature ceases to work, leaving you to scroll by either moving your mouse to the scroll bar on screen or using arrows. Not crazy, but inconvenient.

General stability is ok, although there are some minor issues that I assume to be Windows-8 related more than anything else. For example, my 8-GB of RAM can't support running 2 large excel files at the same time (out-of-memory error).

The build and casing itself is quite good, screen is very thin, although the bezel can be a little thinner. This is a true ultrabook, is very light, and gives excellent battery life.

This is my first Lenovo after 7 years of Dells and I couldn't be more disappointed. I had an IBM thinkpad back in 2005 that was my favorite laptop in terms of comfort and built, but I guess they don't make them like that anymore - everything is cheapened down...

1 out of 5 eggsDecent hardware, awful tech support.

Pros: Good bang for the buck, seemed to work find, spotty wifi connection from day one. Wifi works great on everything else is house.

Cons: Wife was nearly in tears dealing with the awful tech support. They said it would cost 90 dollars to repair despite the numerous calls and documented issues. I will never buy Lenovo again if this isn't resolved, tech support is huge when it comes to electronics and this is unacceptable.

3 out of 5 eggsNice(ish) budget Ultrabook

Pros: Overall the size is fantastic, I love the look and feel for the Ultrabook. The speed from the i5 is sufficient and having dedicated graphics is nice as well. I gave the hybrid drive a shoot but I'm not impressed. SSD installation incoming!

Cons: WiFi is absolutely dumb! Lenovo better square things away or they will loose a long time customer. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Ultrabook doesn't it, you know mobility = WiFi, I mean I thought so at least..

Mouse-pad is a waste of time, get a wireless or Bluetooth mouse... trust me.

I've seen brighter and higher quality displays on CRT monitors.......

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very attractive slim design.

Cons: I gave one egg for this product it's because Newegg sent me a defective USED one, wasted me money for sending the computer back!!! Pretty noisy for the fan. Also I can obviously see someone has used this laptop for some time from the scratch of the front pane!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget laptop - build quality concerning

Pros: Great value. Getting a sleek looking, fairly light, fairly good battery power (~5hrs with decent settings) ultrabook with a 14" screen and a i5 for this price seems like stealing. Rips through everyday tasks like nothing. Didn't come with too much bloat. Easy to use processor throttling software.

SSD makes waking up from sleep such a pleasant experience. 2 seconds and I'm back online. NOTE: I had some trouble waking up from sleep sometimes, and discovered that Windows 8 power settings default is to turn the Hard Disks off after 20mins. Kinda defeats the purpose of an SSD if you ask me. Change this setting and your life will be much improved.

Overall a very solid laptop with excellent everyday usability. The con's area will seem a lot more full than the pros, but I expect perfection out of my big purchases, which this laptop does not really reach.

No wireless issues that some had noticed when this model came out. Looks like Lenovo fixed them.

The blue color is nowhere near as intense as the picture makes it seem, which is a pro for me. Much more muted, matte-metallic looking.

Cons: Some aspects of the build quality are a bit concerning. The shell is solid aluminum which is great, but the chiclet keyboard is mounted in what feels like a flimsy plastic inlay. I'm not sure how this will hold up down the line, honestly. As someone who likes their keyboards nice and snappy with no squish, this keyboard is definitely not my favorite.

I'm also taking a while to get used to the home key placement (directly to the right of the backspace key) which I hit on accident more that I like.

Numerous online reviews noted how mediocre the display is, which I've noticed as well. Colors are less vibrant than they should be, but this is a mid-low end Lenovo, what do you expect? I'm also partial to matte screens, and this screen is very shiny, making glare and reflections an issue almost anywhere except in dark coffee shops.

I've noticed that there are keyboard marks on the screen when I open up the laptop. This means that the keyboard is rubbing against the screen when you close the laptop (!). Get a soft cloth or something to put in between the two or you will have a very sad screen very soon.

I'm also used to using a trackpad that can detect more than two finger gestures, which this laptop CAN'T. Seems like evidence for skimping to save on build cost. Another issue I have with the trackpad is the lack of tactile feedback when your finger is over one of the buttons. There is a line painted to show you where the buttons start, but I've right clicked instead of left clicked way too often. As a note, the ENTIRE pad clicks when you press down. So the whole pad is a left click, and the bottom right is the only right click area.

Lack of a HDMI to VGA converter means I have to spend an extra $30 to give presentations in conventional classrooms.

Other Thoughts: This is the first laptop I've purchased since a tiny 10" 1.6GHz Intel Atom ultrabook I got back in early 2009. It's a huge upgrade in many ways for me, so if you're looking for a review from someone with a little more experience current tech you'll have to look elsewhere.

If you're looking for an upgrade from a laptop you bought ~4 years ago and don't have a lot of cash to spend, look no further. This is a great product, despite the cons I outlined.

Windows 8 is... strange. I don't get it. I boot to desktop and I only see the metro interface when I need to change a setting sometimes. Get classic shell and improve your experience 10000x.

I have not tried any video-intensive things on the computer yet.

3 out of 5 eggsWarning - 10/100 LAN card!

Pros: Fairly powerful for the price

Cons: No Gigabit LAN, only 10/100. In the specs, but have not seen a 10/100 in a laptop in years so I overlooked it.
