3 out of 5 eggsLikeable Compact Convertible Touch Notebook With Real Limitations

Pros: Sharp display, colors look good, attractive small form factor, light weight, thin, makes for a very portable notebook you will want to take with you. I got this to replace a seven inch tablet, and have a more readable display screen. I also wanted to get some hands-on experience with Windows 8.1 using a touch screen. The "convertible" feature lets me use it like a notebook for creating documents using the keyboard, and then use it in "stand mode" for browsing web content and watching Netflix video. The keyboard feels pretty good, even if not as comfortable as a premium desktop unit, and definitely an improvement over trying to type on a keyboard layout on the touchscreen I found watching Netflix was pretty satisfactory once I got past a somewhat slow start-up buffering. Windows 8.1 starts up reasonably quickly. The 500GB hard drive is about as roomy as you will find in a notebook near the current sale price. This unit has an HDMI port so you can send the display to your big-screen TV

Cons: Some apps and programs start very slowly, almost certainly because this notebook only has 2GB of RAM memory. I didn't run any actual time tests, but the battery charge doesn't seem to last very long. You will probably want to check into some alternate choices to replace the apps and programs that load and/or run too slowly. This unit has only one USB2 port and one USB3 port, and no SD card slot. Running multiple apps or programs at the same time will generally not be satisfactory. The built-in speakers don't put out much volume, but may be satisfactory up close in a quiet room with the right program material. Modestly priced headphones made the audio sound pretty good. The touchscreen inevitably acquires fingerprints and smudges, but they clean up pretty easily with a cloth designed for this purpose. The reports are that the RAM and hard drive and battery are not removeable or replaceable.

Other Thoughts: The Newegg captions describe this notebook as having an Intel Celeron N2810 (2.0GHz) processor. However, when you open the "Specifications" tab in the "Quick Info" category, it states that the processor is an N2807 (1.58GHz). Windows 8.1 Control Panel says mine is an N2807. Could this be referring to two different models? No, the product codes are the same. I might try to install Linux (Ubuntu) on this notebook, like another owner described, or just get used to it's limitations and avoid running the stuff it doesn't handle well. Computer users have had to make similar choices for years. Most of us save the complex spreadsheets and the big video editing projects for a powerful desktop computer, and don't try to do those things on a budget laptop. I installed Classic Shell (free software) to make Windows 8.1 behave a little more like Windows 7, and recommend that to anyone who is having difficulties getting used to 8.1. I debated giving this unit 4 stars, because I find a lot to like about it, but I realized that others may not be ready to accept its limitations.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst computer I've ever had

Pros: Nothing. I guess it's neat that it has a touch screen but it doesn't even work most of the time because the computer is frozen.

Cons: Slow. So, so slow. Can barely handle Netflix. Speakers are very quiet. My phone is louder than this laptop. Freezes all the time. I can't actually use it to surf the web, video chat, or anything. It just keeps freezing up. I just use it for Netflix when nobody else is around because it's so infuriatingly slow and horrible that nobody else can put up with trying to watch Netflix on it.

Other Thoughts: I was going to return it but I was working like 70 hours a week and the deadline got past me. So now I'm stuck with this garbage. (I understand this is my fault, but I'm stuck with garbage all the same.) I mean seriously I Just. Want. To. Watch. Bleeping. Netflix. I will quit asking you to do things like surf the web or video chat but for crying out loud can you at least just give me something to watch while I'm folding laundry, you stupid computer??

2. Light Weight.
3. Built in Blue tooth.

Other Thoughts: I've been a computer tech for 15 years and I've always wanted a very small laptop. To often I find myself at a friends house with a computer that needs fixing that cant be fixed without another computer. I

3 out of 5 eggsNice portable formfactor, supports linux pretty well but underpowered hardware

Pros: * Nice netbook-like form factor.
* A good amount of storage
* Was able to shrink windows partition and install Ubuntu without any problems. (note older flex 10 models had issues installing Linux due to 32-bit uefi. This model has a 64-bit uefi)
* Hardware has excellent Linux driver support. No driver issues. Ubuntu supports touch screen
* Able to watch flash videos and local video files in 720p in Linux
* Nice keyboard (though I'm not a fan of having to press the Fn button to use the F1-F12 keys)

Cons: * Price is hiring than other touchbooks
* The wifi doesn't support 5ghz spectrum.(BIGGEST disappointment).
* WARNING!!! CPU is **NOT** a Celeron N2810@2ghz like the listing states, it is a Celeron N2807@1.6ghz.
* Very slow performance. Windows 8.1 is extremely sluggish. More usable with linux install
* Only input ports are 1 hdml, 1 USB 3.0, 1 USB 2.0 and 1 dual headphone/mic jack. No SD card reader.
* Only has a power LED indicator. Now Wifi or HDD indicator. This device could really use a HDD LED indicator because Windows 8.1 lags so much.
* Only 2 gig of ram, and not upgradeable would get alot better performance with 4 gigs
* Only has a non-removable 3 cell battery that will get you 2.5 to 3.5 hrs battery life
* No interchangeable parts, the device is not built with the intention of changing the HardDisk, RAM or battery.
* Touchpad is a little small and doesn't register right clicks very well.

Other Thoughts: I got this as a replacement for my Eee PC 900A netbook. Overall I'm pleased with the performance upgrade and the ease of the Linux installation. I'm able to play Minecraft and Startbound pretty smoothly (on Linux). However the wifi, battery life and lack of a SD card reader is a disappointment. The listing of having a 2ghz processor when it's actually a 1.6ghz is something that should be corrected. The performance with Windows 8.1 is really lackluster, I would only recommend this device for people who are planning to install Linux on it. People who are looking for a touch-book experience but don't want to go with the trouble of installing a non-Lenovo-supported OS, I recommend trying the Chromebook variants.
