Not your parents Buick.....

  • Summary: I have been using ThinkPads since the T61P and had the W520, W530 and now this. While many of complains hinge around this model not having the same design features as prior models, there are a lot of positive new additions which I believe make up the difference. First the negatives: The trackpad does take some getting used to and the throw (vertical up/down movement) of it is hard to adjust to after having a solid surface on all the prior models.

the Touching board (or whatever it should be called) is totally useless, unfriendly to operate

  • Summary: This the first time I buy some digital stuff in US. I've got to say it's so much cheaper than in China. However, I have to point out some flaws of this product itself. 1. The extra part of the battery makes it impossible to fit in some backpack for 15 laptop. 2. The high resolution and the 15.5" screen? Are you kidding me? It just make every icon and font look extremely small.

  • Summary: Been using this for few days from now and I am happy so far. Pros: Faster upgradable to 32GB Good battery life OK in weight Cons: Need to live with the touch pad and once you get used to it I am fine Made of cheap plastic Adapter sucks as it needs 170W slim fast.

Great idea, but not as good as the last version.

  • Summary: This is my third generation of ThinkPad dock and I like it the least so far. I'm still sorting out the bugs, so it may grow on me. But here's the issues I've found. I bought a Lenovo monitor stand for my old work station. The monitor sits on top and the dock sets onto little pegs on the shelf underneath. Nice - the dock is rock steady to put the laptop into and out of. But the new dock doesn't have the place for the pins, so they don't lock together.

Initial experience is largely positive

  • Excerpt: I purchased this specific machine primarily based on requirements for photography and GIS. My previous Lenovo T60 expired sudddenly after 8 years of excellent service, and I had already begun scouting for a new machine since the old one had insufficient memory to upgrade much of my software and was running XP, another no-no for upgrades. I would have preferred a 16: 10 aspect ratio, but this one will do.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Powerful

Poor usability

  • Summary: This new Lenovo W540 is junk from a usability standpoint. * Single button platform trackpad which is difficult to position the mouse AND click at the same time * The keyboard is edge to edge so my hands hang off. No alternative keyboard options * No LEDs for wireless, battery, or DISK ACTIVITY. * No eject for ultrabay devices. You have to remove screws and pry it out with the power off. * Came with a cut wifi cable inside the bottom access hatch.
