Pros:

This is a speedy machine, at least compared with my previous laptops. The keyboard is very comfortable and the keys are nicely contoured. The aesthetics of the case are very nice.

Cons:

1. The machine inexplicably lacks a disk activity LED. This may well be the first personal computer I've encountered that didn't have one. And I miss it. The disk activity LED reassures me that the machine is actually working when it seems to have gotten stuck. A very unfortunate omission.

2. The machine comes with four primary partitions preinstalled. That makes installing an additional OS such as Linux very challenging. I managed to do it by saving the contents of #3 within #2, deleting #3, installing an extended partition in its place, and reconstructing #3 within that extended partition. Then I was able to create additional logical partitions. But I shouldn't have had to do that.

Other Thoughts:

If Lenovo had taken advantage of the UEFI capabilities that the machine already has, they could have avoided those partitioning problems.
