Summary: I have always thought Lenovos were of good quality until now. Of course everything fails after the 1 year warranty. I personally think that a one year lifespan before things start failing is unacceptable, but, on to the problems I experienced: The first unresolved problem I have experienced intermittently is that my wireless adapter fails. Sometimes rebooting fixed this but other times I just had to wait it out. It has yet to fail completely but I expect it will.
Summary: overall very happy with my T540P. pros: screen looks nice, lit keyboard, 10 key really nice, touchpad responds well, battery life is good, very fast, tough as nails (I left it all night in front of the fire place and it got so hot it burned my hand when I touched the back of the screen, despite this the screen was fine even though the plastic warped ever so slightly, I've also dropped it several feet off my bed multiple times with the screen open), has that old school...
Summary: Simply put, a terrific buy and error free experience thus far (~3 months). The trackpad is responsive but could be more centrally located. Not a deal breaker, but centered is better. The screen is ultra crisp and clear. Decided this unit was a better buy than others with an included SSD as I replaced the 500GB HD with a Samsung 850 EVO SSD and now this unit flies! For the 500GB HD I removed, I purchased a 2.5" USB HD enclosure and now I have the perfect backup drive.
Summary: Cheap, cheap, cheap piece of junk. Lenovo has gone way down hill. Mouse pad is horrible, the fn key has been moved, errant clicks, screen flakes out. Luckily, I use this only as a PC with different peripherals, otherwise I would throw it away, it's unusable as a laptop.
Lenovo laptops only look like old Thinkpads but the quality is below any critics

Summary: Make yourself a favor and stay away of any Lenovo products. This company has absolutely nothing in common with old days IBM. Lenovo laptops only look like old Thinkpads but the quality is below any critics. Also Lenovo brand means "forget about any service for the garbage you bought from us" Take care & buy something else.
Decent Laptop with solid construction and good battery life. Might not imprtess your hipster friends much

Summary: It's larger than anything you would want to take on a plane (even in first class) Makes a great alternative to a desktop. The grey/black textured plastic may not look flashy but dosn't scratch or get covered in fingerprints like some of the more coveted machines. Closed on a desk you'd hardly notice it which is a good thing in my book. Graphics capabilty is good enough for light gaming and more than adequte for watching 1080P content.
