Summary: This is the worst Lenovo product i ever used. I write this comment while i am waiting that machine(W541) from recovering. I have used several Lenovo products before including T540, that's quite good. W541 is quite easy to over heat, and then the fan in a big noise..
Great for business minded individuals who need to present themselves while still being able to "game"

Summary: Great laptop, solid build quality. My client has the one with the extreme edition processor and K2100M video card. With those upgrades it just screams while still remaining classy enough for business meetings (unlike most gaming laptops)
Summary: Pros: Fast machine, great keyboard, great screen (I have the IPS 3K), good battery, 32gb memory slots Cons: No HD light, no WiFi hardware switch (get zapped at boot up!), no NumLock or CapLock lights, no 'on' light on power brick or plug ('a la' Dell), TERRIBLE and USELESS trackpad!!
Summary: i have had 4 IBM (now Lenovo) laptops and another 5 or so of other brands. Pro All my lenovos have been reliable, this one probably too. The startup of this laptop is much better than the w520 due to solid state disk.
Summary: Overall, this is a very powerful system, perfect for power-users. The only real issues for me were the following: - The system factory software image comes loaded with bloatware (Lenovo utility/questionable software). - The system Sleep function DOES NOT work.
Summary: This is a great laptop. Like others, naturally I was hesitant about making such a costly purchase without physically seeing what I was buying. But, the good reviews out weighed the bad and I did my research and went for it. I'm glad I did!
but I would honestly rather have a proper mouse pointer with half the clock speed over this garbage.

Summary: I'm usually a big fan of the thinkpad red mouse pointer because it's ergonomic and keeps my hands on the keyboard. They really messed it up with this one button thing, however. It's completely unusable- most of the time the trackpad is confused about single clicks, double clicks, left click, right...
