This laptop would be great if I never had to use the Touch pad

Summary: This laptop would be great if I never had to use the Touch pad. Talk about the most unreliable touch pad my fingers have ever had the hindrance to touch. The location of the touch pad that is used for your primary click (Left clicking in my case) does not always work when you press the same spot,...
Summary: Having used it for less than nine months (assigned as primary work laptop) I am already having to ship it back due to CPU overheating. While I don't complain much about the trackpad like most of the other reviews, it definitely did take some getting used to for sure.
Summary: Bought the W540 to replace my aging W510. Core i7-4900MQ proc @ 2.8GHz, 8M cache and 16GB RAM. I am an IT consultant with 32 years experience and use a laptop daily in my work. This machine is slow, slower than the old W510, unstable, and all but unusable.

Summary: keyboard layout shifted left is all wrong, as is shifting the touch pad to the way way left, what were they thinking, seriously, was the person that designed this left handed? went back to W520
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!
Summary: I always do my research prior to purchasing expensive items. I know IBM/ lenovo to make solid computers. So when i saw the negative reviews here, i had to read the comments carefully.To be honest, the comments coincided with what was said on youtube.
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...
