Pros:

I bought this laptop for my girlfriend and for her its really perfect. It has an ultra low voltage processor so it runs very cool yet is still a dual core i3 with hyperthreading so its pretty fast. Will not get hot even when left on a blanket for a long time. Considerably quicker than her old laptop with an AMD chip. The battery life is great even while watching Netflix with a bunch of other tabs open. The screen is nice and clear and works great as a touchscreen windows 8 device. I'm used to my 1080p screen and I cant tell the difference. HD 4000 suits her needs as the only gaming she does is The Sims and maybe some Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.

Cons:

For her this laptop is perfect but I'm used to my desktop with a GTX760 =). Had a problem with the wireless internet cutting in and out until I updated drivers and turned off the wifi power saving mode. The Lenovo website wasn't much help, I just downloaded a free driver update utility. Came with some bloatware but that's expected for laptops. Space bar doesn't always work unless you hit it in the middle, otherwise I like the setup of the keyboard. I also can't stand Windows 8 but it works for my girlfriend as she has a Windows 8 phone.

Other Thoughts:

It has some minor flaws but no deal breakers. Definitely not made to play games but can probably run Skyrim at low. Got it on cyber Monday for $399 with a $25 rebate which is an amazing price. Thanks Newegg!!
