Would have given this computer 5 stars but I had to send my first one back because of WiFi issues. It seems there is a know WiFi issue. I don't know if it's affecting all brands of computers with the Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230 adapter or just Lenovo. After reading other reviews on Lenovo computers I was worried that I would have the same issue as I had with the first Z400 Touch. The 2nd arrived yesterday and it is working perfectly. The hardest part of the setup was finding an unused email address for hotmail which you need for the Win8 Store, alot like a Gmail account for Android. I have a model only sold online from the Lenovo store with the only difference is that mine has 8 Gigs of RAM and a 1600X900 Display. This unit is is super fast with all the power I need. The processor is a full power I5 not like most laptops that sacrifice processing speed to extend battery life by using low voltage processors. The unit is well built and has a solid feel. There is some flex in the keyboard but from my experience every chicklet style keyboard I've used has about the same amount of flex. My guess would be to cut down on the thickness of the unit something had to give but typing is not an issue. I read some reviews where people feel the trackpad is touchy and feels "cheap", whatever that means, which I have to disagree to both. I am very happy with the computer since I got the replacement.

Another downside is it is a sealed unit which is becoming very common with the thinner notebooks and ultrabooks so I didn't take a star away for that. This means that computer has to be taken in to a service center to have the battery replaced.

Another negative and I mean a big negative is dealing with Lenovo Customer DisService, which you will have to do if you buy from their online store.

I bought this product off of the manufacturer's website(they had a sale for it) and I love it. I needed a new, everyday laptop and so far this is perfect. It is fast, the touch screen is really cool, and it is easy to use. It comes with Windows 8, which I know a lot of people don't like, but it can actually make things really easy once you get used to it. I do have a few issues with the product, but none of them are deal breakers:
1. Outer case easily picks up finger prints, and requires a solution to get rid of them
2. Keyboard is kind of awkward for me. I have small hands and I still end up typing on the wrong row of keys randomly. My last laptop was a behemoth and had a keyboard to match it. I will just have to get used to it.
3. The keyboard kind of bows in when I type, which is strange.
4. The key you can use to close programs is between the refresh and increase volume buttons--which is annoying.
5. The case, in my opinion, doesn't look "dark chocolate" at all. It just looks plain black. Maybe I need to get it in the sunlight or look at dark chocolate again?
Overall, I love this laptop and am very happy with the buy. We will see if this continues to be the case in the coming years.

I have owned 5 or 6 laptops and this is my favorite so far. I bought the i7 processor, 8 GB RAM, with Win 8 touch screen. Some have complained about Win 8, but then every new Windows version has had detractors. I'm OK with it.
The speed is great, the look is sleek, and the fan is quiet. I saw one review comparing it to a "free weight" because it weighs 4 1/2 pounds. If that is too heavy for you then you might have other issues you need to address first. It isn't a tablet, but it has multiple ports and an optical drive that I need. The keyboard does flex a bit when typing, but it doesn't feel cheap or fragile. The screen is bright and clear and at $ 760, the price was the best value machine I found.
Two criticisms that I found valid: The battery does not snap out for removal or replacement. My last laptop had a battery go bad and would not boot with it installed. I removed it & was able to use the laptop (plugged in) until it was replaced. The Lenovo would not allow that. Also, the outside case attracts fingerprints like crazy. I read this in other reviews and thought it was no big deal. It is. Mine always looks like a 4 yr old was playing with it while eating fried chicken. Even with clean, dry hands it smudges. I contacted Lenovo to see if they had a product (wax, etc.) to reduce this & was told they have no reported issue. They should read the reviews. Also, the mouse/touchpad is a bit squirrely but I have no problems or issues with the wifi reception.
All in all, I like the machine and would strongly consider Lenovo for future purchases.

I was unable to move but a few feet away with laptop without losing internet connection due to a weak wireless signal. Trouble is not with my router as I can use my Acer laptop outside of my house and still have a strong signal same with with my iPad and cell phones. Called Levono and they were unable to help. So I will be returning.

I have since seen other complaints on the Levono's forums in regards to networking issues. Too bad, I really liked this laptop.

I bought it as a gift for my brother. I had seen a lot of other reviews mention a faulty wireless driver but it worked seamlessly for me, so no issues there.

-The touch screen is great and very responsive.
-Windows 8 is so much simpler and better when you have touch.
-The processor is very powerful and the laptop manages to still give 5 hrs of battery life on light/browsing usage.
-The keyboard is neatly spaced out, and the backlighting is nice.
-The Graphics card is not great but works well for casual gaming and video editing.
-Its not very light like new ultrabooks, but doesn't feel heavy either. Definitely lighter than my 3 year old macbook pro
-The one click recovery feature is great.

On the whole a good entertainment laptop which is powerful enough for workstation use as well.
