Great graphics card
Beautiful full-HD display
Fast boot time
Large hard drive
The not-so-good (but definitely not deal-breakers):
Overall construction feels a little fragile, especially if you are used to a rugged ThinkPad
Keyboard takes a little getting used to
Windows 8 is a bit clunky
Generates some heat
A bit noisy
Could use more RAM
Some junkware, not enough useful software preloaded
Size & weight
Slow 5400 rpm hard drive
On the plus side, this machine is very fast, both in terms of performance and boot time. The NVIDIA video card and on-board Intel GPU work beautifully together and provide great graphics. This is a great machine for work (astrophysics) and play (games and movies). The display is crisp and gorgeous, and games look stunning on it. The JBL speakers perform amazingly well. Honestly, this machine is worth the price just for the speakers. It came with a huge, but slow (5400 rpm), 1 TB hard drive (although there are 4 partitions pre-installed on it, which makes the usable size about 884 GB; and you would have to clear out and resize one partition if you wanted to dual-boot Linux).
The machine is a little on the big and heavy side. But, it is supposed to be more of a desktop replacement than a mobile laptop.Read more ›
Function: The 1080P screen is gorgeous. Watching movies and high quality YouTube videos is great. The JBL speakers sound better than any laptop speakers I have heard. One of my favorite features is the keyboard - the feedback you get from the keys and the solid build quality makes it enjoyable to type on. Also, for you gamers, I get a solid 40-50 FPS on medium to high settings playing Battlefield 3.
I looked at about 5 different models from a variety of companies and this beat them in almost every category. My one gripe so far is Windows 8. The touchpad gestures can be quite annoying but I'm sure I will adjust to it in time. Of course, that is not the fault of the laptop, just an observation.
Also - DO NOT ORDER THROUGH LENOVO. I had a lot of issues ordering through them and their customer service has been less than helpful (that is putting it very nicely). I don't know why I made the mistake of ordering through them initially. Ordered through Amazon and it was easy and they delivered on time, as always.
All in all, if this laptop fits in your price range, you will not find a better product. Highly recommend.
On top of that it comes with Windows 8 which believe me is simply fantastic and easy to use with your current mouse.
I can see now everything in just one single dynamic tiles based home screen. My mail (all accounts), my messages, sports news, whats going on in Facebook, twitter etc.
If you are considering buying a computer in this price range, this is by far the best choice.
