Summary: Top 10 reasons I like this laptop: 1. Compatible with 32GB of memory 2. Compatible with 2TB space with optical drive replacement (2x 1TB 7200RPM 32GB cache) 3. Light on top of screen so you can see papers and keyboard when working in the dark 4. One USB 3.0 port in back 5. Extremely robust shock cage (I've checked my carryon computer bag on flight with no issues) 6. 1GB dedicated memory which is good enough for almost everything 7.
Summary: The company I was doing consulting work for bought this laptop for me two years ago at the end of 2010 and it's still going strong. In fact, I checked out the Lenovo website to see if something better was out yet and surprisingly, this laptop is still better than a lot of systems out today.
Summary: I bought this from Amazon in early May and have used it for over two months now. I have owned VAIO and HP laptops, and the Lenovo outshines them both. This is my second Lenovo. What I like: - comfortable keyboard - great screen - good sound and camera - STURDY - it's solid as a truck - fast and reliable I maxed out the RAM (16Gb), which wasn't very easy to do, but well worth it. My laptop is how I make my living, so productivity is everything for me.
Summary: With just a few minor annoyances, this is a great laptop. When I set out to find a new laptop, the screen was the most important factor for me, and the screen on this one is spectacular at 1080p. The only issue with it is that text changes color to some degree while dragging windows around. Its default brightness is too bright for normal lighting conditions, but it is just right at 13 of 15.
Very good high performance workstation replacement.

Excerpt: This is a really really powerful machine, and I don't just mean by computing resources. With hyperthreading enabled the machine has 8 virtual cores and has more RAM than I know what to do with. You might want to upgrade the RAM to 8 Gigs, makes running virtual machines a breeze :-) I got the ystem update installed as soon as i had the OS and netwoking installed. That pulls down and keeps up to date whatever drivers your system needs.
Excerpt: Камера и звук на родной установленной на заводе Windows 7 на данном агрегате замирают из-за дополнительно установленной утилиты безопасности диска - утилита пользуется данными аксельрометров для определения наличия или отсутствия движения ноутбука - и если есть тряска или движение, то ситуация расценивается как падения ноутбука - в следствие голока HDD останавливается и чтение и запись прекращаются. Убрать можно в настройках утилиты.
