Summary: Once you get it to work ok it does what it is advertised to do. Nevertheless note the following: a) the Tablet (mine at least) looses communication with the keyboard from time to time, until you download a software update that you have to carefully search for -not that easily found-.
Summary: Quite possibly the worst computer system I've ever bought. Buggy. Freezes up frequently. Only has a subset of software that can be loaded do it. It is "android", but not QUITE android, so you can't run native apps. There is essentially nothing about this machine that I like. My advice? Buy anything else.
Powerful and portable, but with a problematic stylus and touchscreen

Summary: I love the portability and the power of this machine. However, I have an issue when using it to take notes with OneNote - and the same problem is reported by several other users, as shown by this thread: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Tablet-and-Helix/Touch-screen-and-pen-stylus-stop-working-Helix/td-p/1107251 I should be able use the pen for hand writing and drawing, and use touch gestures to zoom in and out, or scroll through a note.
Good notebook. With only 4GB of RAM, it runs pretty good.

Summary: I went from an HP 8460P Elitebook notebook to this Lenovo Helix 36984MU touch notebook. I'm currently running Windows 8.1 on it, and I am very surprise how fast runs with just only 4GB of RAM. Also having a SSD makes it boot up and run sooooo much faster than the old SATA drives. What I don't like about it is that it tends to get a little warm, sometimes hot when left on too long. And that it doesn't have an internal CD/DVD drive, but I really don't miss it that much.
Summary: I've had this computer for a bit more than 2 years now. It runs like it did the day I bought it. I'm a loyal lenovo customer because of this product. Greatest keyboard ever. Kicks Dell's butt for sure.
Summary: first i like the device and its build quality. my only gripe is windows 8 and 8.1 so i downgraded/upgraded to windows 7 sacrificing multy touch so i can have all the drivers working including lenovos battery controller and wifi monitor, intels advanced driver features, and having my wacom drivers be more stable.
Summary: still new too soon for 5 star love. A few glitches, might be W8 start button on desktop; no love for the worthless mousepad . insanely hard to rclick. Click hold down while dragging with 2d finger sucks. Mouse moves when clicking mousepad. ok. Otherwise this laptop pleases me. once I got used to the small screen. I don't have to choose which program to run, I can run multiple activities, music, a game with 3D graphics, WE, eg simultaneously.
Summary: Fan way too loud and system runs fairly hot. Not exactly my ideal combo system. I quickly went back to my X1 Carbon because of the quieter fan and approximately comparable weight. For the cost of the system, the Microsoft Surfaces are easily better alternatives. Sorry Lenovo. :( I typically love your products, but this one just didn't do it for me.
