Summary: Love this laptop, very fast, lightweight and easy to use. I would have been happy if it was an 11 inch, but get along with the larger size because it is so light. Just had to buy a larger purse. I run personal oracle DB on this as well as photoshop and illustrator and it is racing fast.
Summary: This laptop is everything I could ask for in terms of moblility with power. I do a lot of photo and video work with Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0 and Photoshop 6.0. They just hum along on the Lenovo x300. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the cost.
Summary: This is a great product. The quality really shows. The only improvements I recommend are for Lenovo to include a printed manual with more comprehensive description of the functions and, along with this, a more controllable touch pad (or instructions on how to make the touch pad more controllable). When I am out in the field and away from wireless connectivity, I cannot get to the online manual.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Great Software, Lightweight, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: Awesome - the solid state dirve cost is totally worth it! the laptop is super responsive, boots in seconds, fragmentation is never a problem (SSD feature)...just hoping more folks take to the solid state drives so that their prices drop...I for one will never go back to a regular hard disk. One of the lightest and slimmest laptops I've used for a while, and yet has all the ports I require.
Summary: I travel frequently so for me the light weight of this computer is an important consideration. Plus, different from other lightweight laptops that I have previously owned, the X300 feels strong, sturdy and durable, which I think is amazing given its weight. Highly recommended.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: An amazing laptop that beats all the many others I've used to pieces. The fast startup due to the flash hard drive is extraordinary and very welcome. The small size means a small screen but I did not find that a problem for image editing, word processing, or Access work. It fits very comfortably in my travel backpack. Only con is price.
