Summary: Was using a 11.6" Lenovo Thinkpad 120e but was looking for something with a slightly bigger screen for when I am not connected to a monitor and more RAM. Also wanted to stay with Lenovo because I have the slim travel charger that I was able to use with several Lenovo models. Wanted a 13.3" screen that was light and had 8GB of RAM and this fits the bill.
Summary: Almost wish it had VGA and eSata ports. But that's more preference rather than fault.
Pros: I had a 17" laptop before this and needed something much more compact and light. This does the trick. Small, good battery life (6+ hours with 40-50% MAX CPU and 30-40% brightness), and fast after initially booting up (5400 RPM HDD can take ~20-30 seconds). Love the USB 3.0 and HDMI outs
Cons: Hybrid drive doesn't seem to do much for boot time. Runs fast otherwise.
Except for problems with some certain wifi routers, the laptop is awesome.

Summary: I got the laptop factory refurbished. It didn't have even the smallest scratch. The only problem is the know wifi issue. With some (not all) wifi routers, the wifi speed decreases dramatically (down to 6Mbps). Apart from that, super fast, didn't encounter any work or multimedia task that it couldn't handle.
