I got this laptop in the mail yesterday. Here are my initial thoughts on the laptop.

PROS:
Pretty fast, handles Source games at 1366x768 on medium/high with no framerate problems. Beautifully smooth.

Trackpad is big and spacious, is a joy to use in comparison to other laptops.

This thing is thinnnnn, not as thin as an ultrabook, but for a laptop with the components it has I don't think there are many that can match it. The ASUS U36SD is one of the few that can.

Stylish, great looking computer. The shell is a dark gray, it looks nothing like a Mac clone that some of the images make it out to be.

CONS:
A little more expensive than it should be, at 800/950 for i3/i5 configurations. The graphics card also isn't a very good one, typically considered midrange at best. This is excused by the fact that its in a thin, stylish shell.

The gestures on the trackpad stop working sometimes. This seems to be a bug with the driver, its definitely not a hardware issue. Hopefully this issue stops happening or is resolved soon.

This is a small (14") laptop, so the keyboard is a little cramped. Most keys are perfectly fine, but the left shift key is half as big as I'm used to, and the up arrow key takes up that extra space. I find myself hitting up every once in a while. Something that will be adaptable, but it will take some time.

Lastly, the keyboard isn't backlit. Not a big deal, but hey, its worth mentioning. The backlit keyboard could have really put it over the top as a high class laptop.

All in all, I'm quickly falling in love with this laptop. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that has the money to pay a little more for style. Here is an album of photos I took as I unboxed it.

This PC laptop is simply amazing. The sturdy and beautiful design almost exactly mimics the Mac Book Pro for half the price. As far as performance goes, its pretty damn fast. Once I optimized the boot time, my laptop booted up within 18-20 seconds. The screen resolution and display is very sharp and a lot better than I expected any PC to be. In fact, I would argue that the quality of this laptop may even rival the display quality of the Mac Book. The touchpad is wide and spacious with very fluid finger motion sensitivity. The only problem with the touchpad is that it lacks sensitivity when you try to bring up a window of all the separate screens. It seems to only work when it wants to. The only other gripe I would love to see lenovo do with this laptop to put it over the top is that if they had a backlit keyboard or maybe having the logo light up inside the laptop once you turned on the computer, I know I am nit-picking but hey its worth mentioning. Overall, given the price when compared to the quality of my lenovo u400, I would say that this was definitively a better bang for your buck.

I bought one of these for work, and within the first 6 months I was in love so I bought a second one for home. I even convinced my brother to buy one, which he did.

Then it all went downhill. The work computer's HDD failed. It had work data on it, so it sucked to have to send it in to them vs. having a local shop fix it. It was a approximately 40 days without a working computer, which included of multiple shipments to and from their service center in Texas. They were sick of me. It finally got fixed. On the plus side, they are quick to allow you to just send in the machine, but on the negative side their tech's must not take the time to really figure out what is wrong.

While I'm playing the waiting game on my work computer to get fixed, I start using my home computer at work. Right away I discover the ports on the right side do not work. We'd never needed them around the house, but at work I needed the HDMI and 2 USB ports. So I sent that in and they hadn't plugged the controller for those ports into the mother board. Simple enough, but still a problem to deal with. There is a screw/pin that the case attaches to on the center-bottom of the machine, they didn't attach it properly when they sent it back, so the case feels flimsy. I'm willing to live with it.

It is now about a year later and the original work computer, which is now at home, will blue screen after 10 minutes to 2 hours of normal internet use. I did a full OS recovery and the problem persisted. So I sent it in. They returned it after about a week, replacing the factory 750GB hard drive with a 500GB hard drive. Annoying, but I wasn't going to make a fuss if the computer worked. It didn't. Within 10 minutes of having the computer on (straight from the factory) it blue screened again.

Good performance, great screen, decent boot times. The only downside is the trackpad, as others have mentioned. New drivers goes a long way for multitouch capabilities. But its still much too sensitive when typing and my palms accidentally brush it. The only real solution is to plug in a mouse and disable to the trackpad for long typing sessions.
