Summary: It doesn't have the same battery life as my Air, however that doesn't really matter. I'm a traveling services engineer and always near power somewhere.
Pros: This is by far the best laptop I've had. I read all the reviews and was a bit concerned... but once the laptop was in my hands, I could see the quality craftmanship. The touchpad is the best PC based touchpad i've ever used. It doesn't beat my Mac Book Air, but it is a very close second. If the software was a tad bit better and response, it might have come in as a tie.
Cons: I'm disappointed in the propriatory power connector on the laptop side. I wish it had a maglock style connector but it is functional. I typically order two power adapters.. one to leave in my travel bag and one to leave on my desk.. so if i loose it i won't be in too much trouble.
Summary: I have had this laptop for several months and have grown to hate it. The trackpad ruins the entire experience. Attempting to type using the keyboard inadvertently triggers the stick or the trackpad. Disabling the stick helps somewhat, but this also disable the hardware buttons and requires one to make clicks on the trackpad itself.
Summary: I've had this PC for about half a year now and all I can say are good things. Only thing is, battery power is not 8 hours. I get maybe 5-6, but that's seriously more than enough for commuting, school, and work. And if you do need more, the rapid charge brings it back up extremely fast. I've gone from 60% to 90% in 15 minutes. The keyboard is A+. Very tactile. Very responsive. Still old fashioned Lenovo quality.
Summary: Build-quality is good and the display is nice. The sharp edges (not rounded like my X301 and T420s), screen bleed, unusable trackpad (you can't click--the cursor flies all over the place, and they removed the buttons!), and the horrible new keyboard layout (page up/down are moved, page fwd/back were removed, home/end are in a weird spot, missing most ThinkVantage Fn-key combos), really dilute the ThinkPad brand. It's going downhill.
Summary: I really love this laptop. light, fast, problem free, excellent keyboard. What could be better: Larger SSD - 250gb is small. Glidepath(or whatever they call the mouse board) is not really usable, you can't find the zones and taps hardly ever work - but I am a mouse user so it has little impact on me. they can lose the little eraser mouse in the middle - I don't know anyone who uses them any more. otherwise, would absolutely buy this again.
