Cons: HORIBLE screen. Very pixilated, very narrow viewing angle. Adoptive backlighting makes it even worse.
SLOW! Must be related to the hard drive, but it's significantly slower than my 3 yr old x60 (Core 2 Duo) with SSD drive. Task manager was showing latency as high as 10sec (!!!!)
HUGE. I didn't realize how huge 15.6 laptop would be. Not really a con, but worth mentioning.
Other Thoughts: Purchased it as a cristmass present for my significant other and will have to return it. One of the deciding factors for me was that it's a Lenovo and, as someone who's been supporting enterprise computers for 15 yrs, I am very fond of IBM / Lenovo brand. I was VERY surprised to find such a horrible quality screen on Lenovo device. Viewing angle is about 90 degrees, after that colors get messed up.
Additionally, 1366 x 768 on 15.6 screen is auwfully pixilated. You can distinctly see each and every pixel on the screen from about 3 feet.
It also feels unreasonablly slow. CPU behaved well and once apps are loaded, it was quite snappy, but starting apps or loading the updates was painfully slow. Task Manager was showing disk usage at 100% at all times and latency was going up and down from 500ms all way up to 10seconds (!). I am guessing this could be just a faulty drive in mine, but even if that was not an issue, I can't get past the screen...
