Disappointed; many hardware issues during my ownership

Sam Y, Amazon
20 April 2015
  • Summary: I was very excited to buy this computer in 2012. Unfortunately, my experience with it has been dominated by hardware and technical issues. (1) Poor wifi performance, essentially from the start (2) Noisy fan, 6 months in. Repaired under warranty, but took a long time.

Great no-frills Ultrabook

Kyle Kamperschroer, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • 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.

Overall good

  • Summary: I like the computer overall. It's very light and easy to carry. The only thing that troubles me is the keyboard. Sometimes it's hard to press "n" and "a".

Fantastic: Fast and stable

M "M", Amazon
7 November 2012
  • 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.

Not good, some major annoyances and bad customer service

rus garofalo, Amazon
27 September 2012
  • 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.

Beware Thinkpad Biased Reviews!

Timothy B., Newegg
16 June 2012
  • Summary: Beware of overly negative buyer reviews by obsessed Thinkpad fans. You want real world comparisons with other consumer class utrabooks. The major laptop makers all have two lines, Enterprise (business) & Consumer.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Lenovo High Quality Consumer Market Ultrabook, Lenovo backs up its warranties well, even with consumer class portable devices
  • Cons: Pricey at full manufacturer's Retail

Awesome Ultrabook!

Thomas B., Newegg
28 May 2012
  • Summary: I absolutely Love this Ultrabook. I purchased from Newegg about 6 months ago, and use it daily at work and at home. It's a head turner for sure, everyone is impressed by it's beautiful looks and sleek design. It's as portable as a tablet, but gives you full functionality of a full powered laptop.
  • Pros: Beautiful Design, very thin and light, great battery, great performance, best keyboard on any Ultrabook, super fast boot and resume time. No vents on the bottom make this great for on lap or pillow use.
  • Cons: The price is a little high compared to other Ultrabooks. Touchpad is finicky until you update the drivers and tweak the settings to your needs. No backlit keyboard or SD card slot, although I don't miss them.
