Summary: Perfect. Replaced both my Thinkpad Edge 14" and Asus Eee 10" with this laptop. Exactly the right size, and with the i7, no shortage of processing power. Carry it everywhere in Boston, and use it daily. Runs Ubuntu Linux perfectly, minus support for the fingerprint reader and is perfect for everything I need to do. Couldn't ask for a better laptop.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful
Summary: Perfect machine for road warriors, living in the space between a full sized laptop and a netbook. Size, weight, screen resolution, CPU and memory are all spot on. Purchased an Intel G2 SSD and installed separately, and it's beyond fast. Big drawback is poor quality in construction.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quiet
Summary: I am truly impressed by this latest offering from Lenovo on the Think Pad Line. With a comfortable keyboard, readable screen size and high end performance, who thought that I could carry all this on the road with less than 3 pounds. The ThinkPad 201S is a quality device with all the technological advancements we have come to expect available. For those wishing to extend battery life, I would recommend the i3 or i5 processor.
Summary: I was looking for a step up from my eeePC 1000HE, and got it. This X201S is very fast and the display is great. It is also strikingly light and stiff/solid. I've handed it to a couple of friends, and they over-compensate when grabbing it, because they're expecting a 6 or 7 pound machine. Surprisingly, the only place that gets hot from the Core i7 is the fan vent in the back left corner. The rest of the case remains fairly cool.
Summary: I've had a number of laptops over the years and this one and my 2-yr. old Lenovo Ideapad U110 are my favorites - in appearance, utility, and portability. This is an extremely well-made machine.
Summary: I'm a writer and I do lots of photo editing and processing with huge RAW files (such as 24MB each). The 1440x900 screen and the processing power are just great. Photo-editing is about 5x faster than my old machine, which was no slouch. Intensive tasks like unsharp mask are done almost as fast as pushing the button. The only negative is that blankety-blank Thinkpad touchpad.
Summary: Bought this laptop due to its portability and funciton. Have owned for 1 week. Did a ton of research and found Lenovo to be amongst the top in business machines. Had serious difficulty in setting up the fingertip reader for sign-on. Gave up. [...
