Summary: All those cons, and still 4/5 eggs, that is really how nice it is!
Pros: ThinkPad and ThinkPad. Everything else is merely a laptop. This X200 is lightweight and perfect, with my copy of Win 7 Ultimate installing easily. I would recommend Win 7 with this machine. Like new condition, particularly on the features that count like the keyboard.
Cons: 1 dead pixel prominently located on-screen. Stylus can only be removed with tweezers or pliers, as spring action does not work on my unit. Not eligible for genuine ThinkPad depot warranty. Came with LoJack for laptops installed from previous owner, requiring lengthy intervention to remove. The OS it came with was installed quickly and without all needed drivers, making initial hardware testing aggravating. I would have had to finish that job myself, had I not decided ...
Summary: It is not my first device of this product line, before I used X41, R61i, some other ones. I was really wondered at first of the keyboard - it is absolutely comfort. Honestly, I can not use any other type of keyboards with the same feelings. I would prefer IBM (now - Lenovo) at least because of such good keyboard. All keys are on their places, no one has bad location. When you travel and work with texts a lot - you can really appreciate it.
Summary: I would give the Lenovo customer service 5-stars. They are super helpful and sent a tech to fix the two problems the next day. If the notepad had a touchpad and another USB port I would give this a all around Excellent rating. It's fast enough, has plenty of memory, and the touch tablet screen is awe~some.
If you need a portable, reliable, great laptop, get this one!

Summary: Great working condition for an older generation laptop. Fast and works with Windows 7 perfectly! Upgrading RAM and HD to a SSD will make this laptop last for several more years. Function wise, this laptop is very reliable and parts are readily available so it will last for another decade at least!
great laptop if portability is the most important aspect.

Summary: this it a great portable laptop. pretty powerful as well. the battery life it outstanding. the only thing that i didnt like is the sound quality. it only has one speaker at the bottom of the laptop... so all sounds are mono and at first sounded muffled. it takes a little bit of getting used to, but in my opinion, the portability makes it all worth it.
