Summary: Great service. All as I expect，enjoy Lenovo official year warranty. But there are many more parts of the notebook small scratches, which I did not expect to, nor on the product description, hoping to improve.
Decent computer - should be 3 1/2 stars - reasonable value

Summary: I bought this for work to replace a 5 y/o Lenovo G series laptop. One of my clients is an IT consultant and he recommended it, of course warning there's a learning curve with it being Windows 8 and laptop tablet combo. I'm probably not completely through the learning curve and I guess I did what many people do with a Windows 8 machine and that is I did everything I could to make it feel like a Windows 7 machine..
Summary: Hardware awesome. Software sucks. I didn't realize that Windows 8 version was as bad as people were saying it was. I love the laptop but I can't wait to upgrade the windows program. I brought the laptop to be able to give presentation and it lived up to expectations.
Summary: I just get my laptop, and I'am testing it. However, something weird is happening with the screen. Screen lighting constantly increases and decreases. I already check energy setting but it's still happening. Is that normal? Also there is a little noise after started it. I guess is the hard drive, but it is normal?
Summary: It's an ultrabook, it can twist, it's windows 8, it even has a touch screen! The most important is it's only 800 bucks Thinkpad. BUT this is the problem of it. It get super hot and slow when you run relatively large programme. The touch screen gets unreflective when you twist the screen. You wont expect a working station only worth 800 dolloars right? However it is a perfect choice if you want to bring it travel regardless the short-time battery.
Summary: This laptop is fine when it actually boots up. It often doesn't boot, and can take several tries before it will actually boot up. In this it's not unlike a previous netbook I've had which was quite temperamental about booting up.
Summary: This laptop replaced my traditional 15.6" Toshiba Satellite. I was resolved to get 8 gb of ram because I don't like pushing the limits of ram, and I always upgrade when buying a new machine (had 4 gb on my Toshiba). And an icore processor seemed like the right way to go, and of course they are prevalent in current machines. I initially decided on a touchscreen for added functionality, especially with Win 8. That was a ~$150+ decision over a traditional laptop.
