The worst thing about this tablet is dealing with Lenovo
8 March 2013
Summary: From the get-go this computer has not been worth what I paid for it. It has always had ongoing issues with the network card periodically shutting off which is an enormous pain when you need to convert out of tablet mode to turn it back on. The absolute worst thing is the customer support from Lenovo. I was disgusted that I couldn't even get someone to tell me the part number for a broken part (the plastic latch) since my computer was no longer under warranty.
Summary: I've owned this computer for about 18 months. I got a RAM drive to ensure fast speed. That was when I was using Outlook (which stinks). Since I had 20GB of mail, I decided to move to Gmail. I also just did a re-install of Windows 7 and put on a whole bunch of drivers from Lenovo. This machine is now the best machines that I have ever owned. It is better than an iPad and has tremendous PC functionality.
Summary: This is a great computer. I have dealt with many laptops before, and so far this is by far my favorite. I have had it for about a year now, and am very happy with its performance. Very solidly built, and pretty lightweight... I carry it around all day, and although it bumps into table corners and such, it is still very much intact. When you first buy the Thinkpad, its battery life is around 8 hours... after a year, though, its now more like 6 or 7 hours.
Summary: Got this as a computer for medical school for about 2k. Many medical students have had their hard drives crash. Our IT department says the computers should not be moved at all when not in sleep/off/hibernate mode because, despite advertisements about HD crash/drop protection, these HD heads are liable to smash into the disk and permanently damage the HD (i.e. probably delete all your data too).
Summary: I bought this in October 2010 & it has worked really well. Iris the third tablet PC I have owned (Fujitsu and Asus were before) and this one feels more solidly built. It's great for mobile professionals like myself. I love taking notes with onenote on it!
Summary: I bought this computer for college my senior year with the idea that I'd keep using it once I became an architect, as my old poor hp laptop (which served me well) was woefully past its prime. What attracted me to this computer was of course the tablet, but I also wanted one that was portable, and strong. My professor had a lenovo, so I looked into the brand. And after a lot of research (and agonizing over my decision) I decided to buy it. It has worked beautifully.
Summary: I've had my tablet for about a year now and at first I must say I absolutely loved it. Mine has an SSD with the i7 processor and the works but then the problems started to roll out. It boots up slower than my desktop that just has a HDD, there are problems with a lot of the programs including Microsoft Word to be the most annoying and the pen no longer works even though I've re-installed all the drivers.
Summary: When I read the bad reviews below, I had a hard time believing it's the same piece of machinery we're talking about. As a graduate student, I *love* being able to constantly have access to all of the papers I've read, with my handwritten notes and highlights in the pdf file (I use pdf annotator for that, but there is other free software), I have scanned versions of textbooks, all of my class notes (my handwriting is searchable within OneNote 2010 (!
Summary: I really love this laptop. I feel that Windows 7 integrates with this beautifully. I am a teacher and a graduate student and this has seriously increased my productivity. This is the first time I have used OneNote and it is simply a game changer. I am able to complete and organize projects with way more ease. I chose to invest in this machine because of the tablet feature.
