5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased

Pros: Bought this refurb @ 200 dollars less than a brand new one for my fiance because her old mac has been dieing for a while. She loves it, especially since the touch screen is always on, even in laptop mode. Very impressed with newegg's refurbished items, as always. Good battery life too, Excellent buy on the cheap.

Cons: Sometimes, it will move back to the desktop for some reason, but I'm assuming that's just Windblows 8 doing it's thing.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat convertible laptop

Pros: This has if not the best power-to-weight in its price class. It is a true convertible, not one of those blacklip laptops... It can handle all of the apps I put on it. the screen has awesome quality. It is even compatible with Dolby theatre virtuilization. I like the fact that it has a non-slip rubber case, so when I hold it it does not slip out of my hand.

Cons: I like the touch screen on this, but it can lag from time to time or certain times the screen will not click. Also, this tablet has bents on the bottom and size expelling hot air, meaning that it can get too hot to hold or too hot to sit on your lap. The battery is also not as long lasting as it should be. I'd expect it to be lionger, but since I am always near a power outlet, this is not an issue for me. Also, the lack of expansion ports can be an issue for some. Without a VGA port, you would need a mini-DP adapter to connect to a projector or monitor, unless the projector or monitor is HDMI. If not the biggest problem with this is that is cannot be upgraded on RAM. I personally do not care about that as by the time I am ready to do that, I would be able to afford a new one anyways.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is my favorite laptop I have ever owned. I have owned Macbooks and I have owned regular Windows laptops and I like this the best. I would have perfered a Windows 8 version of the Lenovo X230T, but for being over half the price less, this is a hell of a laptop. My only real complaint deals with windows 8 in "metro" mode. The apps sometimes fail to load, and the store sometimes fails to complete a download or install. I am hoping Windows 8.1 fixes all of this. Otherwise, this is the best laptop I have ever owned and I plan to keep it for as long as I possibly can ( and this is comming form a Mac lover). My advice is GET IT WHILE THE PRICE IS LOW.

5 out of 5 eggsShe's a 9.5 out of 10

Pros: Once I found the spot to turn her on, we were rockin'. This baby goes both ways. I didn't think I would be able to get her to turn, but she came around. And she was very responsive to my gentile touch. She was good with one finger, but she was also able to handle ALL TEN. For precise handling, I use one finger on her special spot. You know, the red nub right in the middle. feels good man. I wasn't sure we would be the right fit, but imagine my surprise when I realized how much I enjoyed a 12.5-incher. She's got plenty of energy and can go for hours and hours. And I hope you don't mind protection, because this baby's got so many kinds of protection that you can get a little rough without getting into trouble. And she goes from asleep to ready in two seconds flat.

Cons: Oh, she's hot, a little too hot. If she sits on your lap, you will both get hot. But just give her a little space, and some room to breathe. And she'll be just fine.

Other Thoughts: I miss the lower mouse hardware buttons. And the other keyboard button configuration takes some getting used to. And, again, there's no menu key. Just like my ThinkPad X120e. But unlike my X120e, the Fn and Ctrl keys cannot be switched. I wish they would keep to a similar key layout within the ThinkPad line. On the plus side, it uses the most standard power adapter. Same as my other 3 ThinkPads.

As usual, newegg's efficiency and price were the best.
