Summary: I wanted a laptop that provided me with enough power to pipe 1080p content via HDMI or DLNA to my TV. This works perfectly. I didn't want to pay extra for a touch screen. The build quality is fantastic. It's a comfortable weight, and doesn't feel like cheap plastic. The only complaint I have with this particular model is a slight bit of noise the case or keyboard makes when the volume is turned up too loud.
Summary: This is by far the best laptop I've ever owned. I have not had single issue and am consistently impressed how fast it is. I have a Perl script that parses ten different databases, it use to take 20 minutes, I couldn't do anything else while it ran and I would have to reboot after it ran even once. Now it takes 2 minutes and I can continue to use my computer as normal. For the price, it's amazing.
Not good, some major annoyances and bad customer service

Summary: I got this from Lenovo as a replacement for the T420s that broke after 4 months, blue screen of death and then failed repairs. The internal mic has never worked. It sounds like I'm talking with a pillow over my face. The tech told me it was not broken. I had to yell and he could barely hear me when I called him using it. Using the mic on my Mac, he had no problem at all with me talking like a normal human. The wifi is really weak and drops off several times a day.
Summary: Lenovo U300s 10802BU 13.3-Inch Ultrabook (Graphite Grey) . I bought 2 new U300s on line from Lenovo USA....... my wife brought it back to Australia. WHAT THE ??!!?? Both units's rapid boot from sleep does not work? Contacted Lenovo, might have to ship both ultrabooks back to Texas for a replacements..... Spent more than 1 hour with tech support from USA.... no luck, flashing BIOS, reinstalling drivers, changing power settings all did not work.
Best computer I have ever seen except for a couple things

Summary: The key to this pc seems to be that its perfect except fro the details which could use some work. -Others complained about the screen but I don't mind it too much, it isn't gorgeous though. -Also battery life is closer to 3 hours than anything (medium brightness and settings) which I think is partially due to the rapidcharge. No battery is designed to charge that fast and it shows. You go from 0 to 96 percent in half an hour and from 96 to 100 in another half hour.
Summary: love the speed had a problem with the wifi however the support was helpful got hold of the support right away without a wait.my only complain is when i tilt the laptop the fan seem to connect with the aluminum casing and make scratching sound. overall i am happy with this. review update after a month and half one of the rubber feet of the ideapad had detached. the casing is now making clicking sound when you pick it up, like it is loose.
Excerpt: The Lenovo U300s is a great Ultrabook that while lacking an SD card slot and backlit keyboard makes up for it with sturdy built quality, fast speeds, HDMI out, a water resistant keyboard, LoJack and more.
