Pros: Fast, quiet, Windows 8, touchscreen

Cons: Touchpad is oriented left of center

Other Thoughts: This machine is perfect. The hardware is great, it runs extremely fast and quiet, and the touchscreen is superb.

For a first time Windows 8 user, I highly suggest watching a Windows 8 tutorial on YouTube and googling for some tips and tricks. It will save you a bunch of growing pains.

I really like the full size number pad being built into the keyboard. Screen brightness and sound are easily adjusted with the F keys as are many other great features.

My only dislikes thus far are the touchpad and the right shift key. The touchpad is not centered for whatever reason and can be tricky to get used to (left hand may accidentally touch the pad while typing. Also, the right shift key is half-size. As someone who always hits shift with their right pinky, I find myself (even as I type this review) constantly hitting forward-slash instead of shift. I'm sure that you can get used to that fairly quickly though.

Overall, this is another excellent Lenovo product. If you're waffling on what to get, buy this. I use it for home and occasionally business use and it has far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend getting this model over a model without a touchscreen. The touchscreen isn't necessary with Windows 8 but it makes it a lot smoother and improves the overall user experience. Plus, it's fun!
