Summary: I bought this on newegg when it was $680. Don't know why there was such a huge price increase, but you can still find it elsewhere for $700 which is a stellar deal for this laptop. It is a great ultrabook for that price. I haven't run the battery all the way down, but at medium brightness it lats at least 5 hours, probably even more. The I7 makes this laptop very fast and efficient as it still takes 15W just like the I5's.
Summary: Love the Lenovo. Windows 8.1 could be a little less complicated. A lot of my Windows 7 files got scrambled during transfer and it's taken some time to fix them but that's a Microsoft problem not Lenovo. The Idea pad is quick to respond and perfect for home or office use.
Summary: To be honest, I bought this laptop expecting it to be run of the mil laptop. Didn't expect anything special and had only planned on it as a work computer for basic word processing, excel, and the occasional remote desktop. I haven't had a single problem with it, runs everything I can throw at it. Even tested on several graphic heavy video games and I have no complaints. Runs multiple instances of remote desktop, no issues.
Summary: Much better than what I expected. It's a light and slim one. Extremely quick to to boot up. It takes around 10 secs to boot. Battery lasts almost 5 hrs. Performance is great. Does not heat up Cons Hard drive is small at 500 gb No DVD drive. Overall a great laptop for the price.
Excerpt: Lenovo makes a great product, this is our third Lenovo in the family. I wanted to have a laptop but also knew the convenience of a table. This is truly the best of both worlds. Some days I use it just like a laptop working through the desktop and other times I can just flip the keyboard around and use the apps and touch screen and it turns into a a great tablet.
