Pros: fast boot-up (thanks to SSD), good battery life, light and thin

Cons: wifi adapter has major connectivity issues, touchpad is faulty

Other Thoughts: I should have checked the lenovo support forums before buying and recommend you do as well. The wifi adapter has known issues, and Lenovo continues to distribute these laptops with the faulty adapters and there's no fix in sight. To get repair/diagnostics you have to mail the laptop to Texas with a 2 week turnaround. Can't do that if you need the laptop for work... I just ordered an external wifi adapter just so I can have some stable connection.

The touchpad has issues as well. It constantly has issues and the swipe/scroll feature ceases to work, leaving you to scroll by either moving your mouse to the scroll bar on screen or using arrows. Not crazy, but inconvenient.

General stability is ok, although there are some minor issues that I assume to be Windows-8 related more than anything else. For example, my 8-GB of RAM can't support running 2 large excel files at the same time (out-of-memory error).

The build and casing itself is quite good, screen is very thin, although the bezel can be a little thinner. This is a true ultrabook, is very light, and gives excellent battery life.

This is my first Lenovo after 7 years of Dells and I couldn't be more disappointed. I had an IBM thinkpad back in 2005 that was my favorite laptop in terms of comfort and built, but I guess they don't make them like that anymore - everything is cheapened down...
