Summary: This is an awesome little computer for the price HOWEVER, I see now that Newegg is offering a core 2 duo with 4 gig ram and windows 7 pro for $30 less than what I paid for this thing. BTW-this one shipped with a Centrino vPro.
Pros: Clean and functional
Cons: Better deals available...and it's through NEWEGG-ergo, I got taken
Summary: If you need a laptop quickly I would look at another product, given 3 of the reviewers have had issues with DOA batteries, maybe Newegg or their reseller have fixed this issue, but it was frustrating receiving a defective product.
Pros: Great laptop for the money, and the touch screen function takes a bit to get used to using a stylist but is smooth. The transition from laptop to tablet is simple.
Cons: First one came with a DOA battery, after a RMA the new one had no battery issues so far (besides arriving with <5% charge). Only additional complaint is the hinge for the screen, the cover seems to be loose I'll probably pull it apart and see if its a loose screw, it doesnt effect the screen rota...
Summary: This is a 5-6 year old laptop, so every dealer and item will vary somewhat. My experience was: Bought an inexpensive X61 advertised "battery not guaranteed." Battery was defunct, but unit was very very clean, with refurb hard drive and nice clean Win7 install.
Laptop that lacks in features but makes up in size (or lack thereof)

Excerpt: The Lenovo x61s is one of the lightest laptops I've ever used (not that I've used that many small laptops). Featuring a 12.1" display and Core 2 Duo Processor, it's a reasonably powerful machine.
Summary: Took a considerable chance and ordered this Lenovo laptop via Amazon, sight unseen, to be brought by a friend to South Africa. It's a most unflashy machine, matt black and boxy, but it has wormed its way into my heart.
Excerpt: Schon länger wollte ich ein Convertible (=Notebook+Tablet) versuchen und als ich ein Angebot für 160€ gefunden hatte, habe ich zugeschlagen. -Core2Duo L7500 1,6GHz -Intel GMA X3100 -12,1" SXGA+ Display (1400x1050) -4GB DDR2 SDRAM -Intel Wireless 4965AGN -Bluetooth -Fingerprint Reader -320GB 5400RPM...
Pros: Sehr gute Tastatur, TrackPoint, ausgezeichnetes IPS Display, viele Schnittstellen
Conclusion: ноут качественный, сборка и материалы тоже, никаких люфтов, скрипов и щелей. Монитор действительно слабоват по разрешению и яркости, дизайн галимый. А то, что нет встроенного привода, так это плюс.
