As a software developer (Qt) I'm fairly satisfied with this machine so far. I was looking for a compact machine that I can use on public transportation, to replace my S10-3t, which has been more useful than I thought over the last couple of years. I wanted a smallish but high-resolution screen, multitouch, a wacom stylus, a decent keyboard, more powerful processor than an Atom, Intel graphics, big enough SSD, and reasonable battery life. It delivers on all those points. The detaching tablet is just icing on the cake for me. I kept the Windows partition, and upgraded to 8.1, but run mostly Arch Linux; that works well, and was not hard to install. Most of the hardware just works, the rest is also not hard to get working. (Hints: Windows can shrink its own partition so you can free up some space. Then you can create a backup USB drive and delete the restore partition to free some more space. Use gummiboot for dual-booting while keeping UEFI intact... no need to fall back to BIOS/MBR mode.)

Disappointments (most of which I knew beforehand): no ethernet unless you carry an extra USB dongle for that; no HDMI; not a Haswell processor (and it would probably run a bit cooler if it had one); clunky "skirt"; and the fan runs most of the time. It's a relatively quiet fan, but again if they had updated this machine to Haswell by now, maybe it could run without the fan for light loads. The machine is too expensive, especially considering that it's last year's processor. I could sortof justlfy $1100, but not the list price.

The "skirt" is what I call the flap on the keyboard dock which opens behind the machine when you open it laptop-style.

I got just what I needed in this machine. I wanted a small but high-resolution screen, multi-touch, a wacom stylus, a decent keyboard, more powerful processor than an Atom, big enough SSD for my needs, and reasonable battery life. It delivers on all those points. The detaching tablet is the best part of it all for me! I can work on a very powerful laptop if I need that power but can also play Fruit Ninja or Angry Birds on it's tablet mode with a touch screen! On my down time of course :)

I have had this machine for almost a month now. I waited to review it because I wanted the opportunity to really experience it's full capacity.

I am glad I purchased this, though a bit disappointed that it did not come with a Haswell processor, but then again I was already aware of it. I just can not understand why Lenovo would not upgrade to Haswell, being that the processor has been out for a while now. Come ON, Lenovo GET with the program! The fan runs most of the time when in Laptop mode. It's a relatively quiet fan, but again if they had updated this machine to Haswell by now, maybe it could run without the fan when not doing extensive work. I suppose I could HAVE waited for the Haswell version, but I needed a new laptop NOW so when I saw this one come down in price from like $1,400, I jumped on it, but like the title of my review says, I still feel that this machine is too expensive, considering that it's last year's processor.

Over all, I am both happy and satisfied with this purchase. This machine feels very solid to me, not like others I have played with and are wobbly or plasticky looking and just feel like it's gonna break in your hands. Heck, even the keyboard feels really nice! Not like the Surface that feels like you're tapping on a piece of cardboard :) My final words: If you can afford it, and you want something solid GO for it.
