Summary: Really bummed about the tracking component in the BIOS still being active from the previous owner.
Pros: Works acceptably.
Cons: Big brother is still watching — Computrace tracking was left enabled and *activated* in the BIOS by the previous owner and reinstalls itself into Windows from the BIOS, even with a full reformat. See Absolute.com's FAQ on Computrace for more information on this. Cannot disable from BIOS directly.
Summary: I was hoping for a touchscreen but it was not specified. I put in a SSD and tried Windows 8 but the aggravation of attempting to get things to work was too much. I installed the Win7 camera and fingerprint scanner drivers in compatibility mode. They worked with the Lenovo software but were not recognized by the OS. I ended up going back to Vista and giving it to my son as he is now enrolled in some online classes for HS.
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: Superb ultrabook alternative which can do most usual task and pack with decent computing power with adequate battery life. Much better than Chromebook which is highly overrated. Highly recommend. It's not for gaming which require dedicated graphic card.
i have this model, but with ssd 64gb and 1.6 ghz with no webcam..

Summary: i just love this think-pad, mine is pen only without touch, and that works for me, i have windows 8 as this is what it came with, but the features are great and it is so very fast, i have a rimless screen, that is very clear, and bright and soft to touch meaning smooth, the pen on it writes smooth and fluid and the windows 8 seems to have very good pen input recognition and when handwriting it is translating into type very well without error.. it has so much..
