Summary: I have had this computer for 1 year now. And it works great! I can run auto cad in 3d and still be using a few pages of google chrome without it slowing down the least bit. The battery life is great, longer than I was expecting and I just love the red dot.
Distributor is great. Product delivered was what I expected

Summary: Distributor is great. Product delivered was what I expected. License key not provided (is I wanted to reinstall the OS from Microsoft CD instead of OEM restore, which requires creating restore disk [which includes some Lenovo software]). Belarc can be used to get the license key.
I've been very satisfied with the mobile workstation
A. Simpson "Design Facilitator", Amazon

Summary: Except for having to do my own research to figure out how to back up the pre-installed Win7pro OS, I've been very satisfied with the mobile workstation. Since is it a bit heavy, I don't generally haul it around much, so I won't comment further on it's portability.
Summary: Upgraded ram to 12GB and added 240GB Samsung SSD and it runs like a dream machine. I still use my W500 from time to time so I expect this baby to last a minimum of 5 years without any problems.
Summary: Lenovo for me is the best brand for laptops, it have good performance, very resistant, could expand memory. Actually I bought a Kingston 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 (PC3-12800) also in Amazon and it worked without any problem.
