1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the time and money

Pros: The laptop looks great and when it is working it is pretty fast. I bought this on sale for 500, which is a good price relative to what they were asking (800)

Cons: The laptop is poorly made with serious design flaws. First is the mouse. Its right over the battery which causes it to move all over the place, this is a known problem among users but Lenovo doesn't recognize it as a problem so no free fix. Its not worth buying and having to take apart and fix (I did what the other review said and followed youtube). Lenovo doesn't help and they act like you are wasting their time when you call. Also, the keyboard keeps popping up, its a cheap plastic keyboard that is suppose to snap in but keeps popping out because of poor design. There are also driver problems with the video card, if you don't turn the computer all the way off when you start it back up the screen is either so dark you can't see anything with the lights on or its just a blank screen but you can hear windows sounds when you hit enter etc. Also, when buying this don't think that windows is loaded on the SSD to make it boot faster because its not. Its still on the HDD, which is dumb. Who wants a 20 something gig internal flash drive that you can't take out and move to another computer.

Other Thoughts: This is the last Lenovo I will buy given their poor workmanship and moreover because of their lack of support.

5 out of 5 eggsDesign flaw

Pros: Light weight

Cons: This model has a design flaw in the trackpad that causes the curser to jump randomly around the screen. Unfortunately I did not read the user reviews before ordering this machine however New Egg accepted the return since I had the machine less than 24 hours.

Other Thoughts: With a quick Internet search you will find that many people have this same issue.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the sale price

Pros: Great price when on sale.

You certainly get what you pay for. I consider that a compliment sense far to often you get less with electronics.

Will handle any day to day computing quickly.

Nice median between your standard notebook and an ultrabook.

Cons: Will need some work done out of the box to get it running right.

As mentioned the touch pad is terrible without a little work.

Will need to adjust the wireless settings as well.

Not a gaming machine, but that's not really what you buy this computer for. Just thought I should mention it.

Keyboard is a little flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Okay, if you don't want to open the laptop up and do a little work then warning now you WILL HATE THE TOUCHPAD!!!

If your not scared to open the machine then check out Youtube there is a great step by step guide to fixing the touch pad issue with a little black tape. I had the touch pad issues right away after turning the computer on for the first time. Within an hour after receiving the computer I took it apart and applied the fix. It has worked great now for 3 weeks.

You will need to also adjust the wireless driver settings so that the frequency is automatic rather then set to 20Mhz. Again with a little Google searching you can find the fix.

Once these two issues are addressed the laptop is fantastic. For the price...

2 out of 5 eggsFaulty touchpad

Pros: Looks great

Cons: Faulty touchpad

Other Thoughts: I owned this laptop for 3 days now and I have been installing new drivers or just updating. The touchpad is super jumpy and isn't even use able at certain point. I thought I would work around the touchpad with a USB mouse but it sometime will cause my computer blue screen cause it isn't a certain kind. I have been doing a littlevresearch about this and more and more people are having the exact same problem, and I guess Lenovo is doing anything about it. Other then the touchpad and the usb mouse I'm not having any problems with it yet and I haven't really seen anyone else having any other problem then the touchpad and wireless card. If I would have know how bad this problem was soon I wouldn't have even bought this computer, its not worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost there

Pros: Computer is lightweight compared to laptops but no so compared to ultrabooks. It is fast botting up or waking up. Great design with backlight keyboard. Computer is gorgeous!!!

Cons: The major flaw is the touchpad. After a while it goes crazy, clicking by itself moving all around you name it. AFter a while it gets frustrating. Checking forums it appears it is a design flaw with the position of the touchpad. No driver or change in sensitivity will fix the issue you will actually have to send it back to Lenovo so they can fix. Display image is subpar.

Other Thoughts: The laptop in its essence is very powerful, looks and feels great. Very responsive and fast. The only real complaint is the touchpad which becomes annoying after using it for a while. This issue has been documented since December 2012 and they have yet to address the issue. That may be the reason this beautyful looking ultrabook with such great specs has a low value. If you have no issues with playing your luck and buying it go ahead. If you get the issue you can send it back or fix it with Lenovo. Lenovo customer service is okay. I love it and don't want to send it back but I think I will.
