Summary: I really wanted a tablet and I needed a new laptop. I didn't want to buy two different items so I searched for a long time for some sort of two in one. I discovered there are very few good options out there. Most are tablets that can connect to a keyboard, but they are more tablet than laptop. This item was perfect for me. The screen folds over to make it just like a tablet, yet it is still light-weight and easy to use.
Summary: Nice design, and good working. Bought this ultrabook because my studie at school. It's fast 8 sec boot time, and using photoshop on it was faster than I explicated. Only playing HD 780p movies our series in VLC is for this ultrabook not feasible. On AC you have the best quality and performance.
Summary: Outstanding value/performance for the price. Bought for son going to college and as compared to another touchscreen laptop that I bought for myself (an Asus brand) I feel this one is better. More durable and substantial in construction and handling. More responsive and OS operates more efficiently. I chose this over the Asus and over Chromebooks as well. My son has not reported any issues with it after one semester at school.
Summary: I like the lightness of the pad, and smoothness of mechanical works. I am not very "charmed" with Win8. It takes a good bit of rearranging of all ones ideas about managing Windows. Not all sure this drastic change was truly necessary. MS never heard of "It ain't broke....
Summary: I generally like this. The price is great, its light and thin, and the battery life is great. I liked the flip screen more than i thought i would, especially for reading on the kindle app. These were the most important factors I was looking at when buying this laptop. I'll focus most of this post on the downsides and you can weight these appropriately for your purposes.
Purchase a couple of weeks ago. It has performed well

Summary: Fair Warning: If you buy online from Lenovo get a screen capture of the specs. I did when I notice the receipt did not include any specifications. Everyone I talked with in three different departments said they could not look up the specs on the computer I purchased. Who does business this way??? After numerous phone calls I was told they would be sending me a new computer (doesn't make sense to me, just send me a Pro Key and be done with it!!!).
Pros: Great operation as a tablet and laptop. Works well in both forms.
Cons: Dealing with Lenovo. I purchased through their online store. Specs stated one configuration including windows 8 Pro. Received basic windows. Getting this straightened out has been one big runaround.
Summary: That's all I have to say about it. The mouse pad ain't the best and the backspace and home keys are really close. I like that its fast. About 8 seconds to start. The screen is big and very light. The color sticks out making people stop and ask about it. Pretty awesome I have to say. Good Job!
Summary: First of all, it's an ultrabook, not a tablet. Not good to read stuff on a heavy user basis. I'll always preffer a book. As an ultrabook I`m just in love with it! Faster than my old macbook pro, since initiating process. Keys and volume control are well located, and the entire thing is really thin and light! I love showing it off o my friends... starting as a regular computer... than I touch the screen a little... and finally I flip the screen! Sensational, lol.
