I like the computer, but beware of the seller's misleading description
11 June 2013
Summary: These are actually great little computers. I bought one at a super discount last fall and it has been a rockstar. However, it got the H20 virus and I needed a replacement asap to get some important project files off the drive. I found this one. The title says "2GB RAM" but the description says "8GB RAM." I asked an Amazon rep to clarify the actual equipment and she confirmed it shipped with 8GB of RAM. When the computer arrived it only had 2GB RAM.
Fast, Great Audio paired with headphones, Awesome for school! Buy SSD.

Summary: Pro's * Great Sound Board (Audio is amazing when paired with headphones) * Lenovo's upper track-pad is wonderful once you adjust to it. * Great battery life (paired mine with a Samsung SSD 40 Pro) 3 Hours of youtube podcasts and web surfing and my battery is at 78%! * HDMI video out * Lenovo software is actually very useful (Driver updater! and Advanced power manger!) and the bloatware is at a minimum if any at all.
Summary: It's light, it's sturdy, and it's a thinkpad. Even if it's a "student" edition thinkpad. No problems so far except for the amount of crapware Lenovo put into it (still less crapware than a Sony).
Summary: I was looking for a "large notebook" with long battery life that I could take in the field when I travel abroad. This notebook fit that bill well. Reasonable speed, good sized hard disk, and overall acceptable lightness for carrying in "light luggage"
