My biggest concern is about the screen, which is good enough for office use but clearly not in line with the price tag, you will get use to it but the first days I did consider returning the machine just because of this....
Also, the widi is a nice addition, I turn a conference room into a video room very easily with the addition of the netgear widi receiver.
Overall, I do like my x1, looks very "pro" and makes me look different from others executives on MBA (which are so 2010 :-) )
The weight feels great, very light.
I am running arch-linux and doing lot of coding with it. I have not found any
hardware compatibility problem with linux.
I haven't found any of these to be true, and I am pleasantly surprised! The charger is not that bulky, it appear normal, and when I compared it with an ultra-slim charger (not made by Lenovo, bought from an outside source) they weren't all that different in terms of weight and size.
The battery life has been around 3-6 hours depending on my usage, and I always have a lot of tabs open, I'm always using the internet, and I usually have Pandora open in the background. I run programming tasks, use Solidworks, and do a lot of stuff with it, and even under heavy use it lasts for a good 3-4 hours. Lenovo also has some nifty ways to extend battery life.
I don't use the trackpad much, since I love the trackpoint, but it seems totally fine, no looseness yet...
However, there was a lot of preloaded bloatware, and I uninstalled most of it, including the Lenovo Power Manager because it wasn't very useful and it stopped working after a week.
Despite its faults, I can't help but give it 5 stars for its amazing lightness, the screen quality (not sure why people didn't like it, maybe my eyes are just too bad to notice the pixels!), and its battery life and slimness. Not the most powerful machine, but it serves my purposes PERFECTLY since I travel a lot and it doesn't feel like anything in my bag. Then again, I'm converting from an IBM Thinkpad T43, which weighed about 5.3lb for the same screen size.
Immediately after it was unpacked I was impressed with the quality of the build. It is incredibly thin. The keyboard has to be the best Chicklet keyboard I have used. The layout of the keys is very well done, and they are crisp.
I have been using it now for 3 weeks. This is by far the best machine I have ever owned or used. It blows the socks off a friends laptop (hint... it is silver).
The only negatives that I have found (which exist on every other machine I looked at)
* The screen is a little too bright for me so I lowered the brightness and it is still crisp. The high resolution results in everything being smaller than my previous ThinkPad but that is easily adjusted.
* I wish both of the USB ports were 3.0
* It needs a hot key to disable the trackpad. I occasionally let my thumb touch it while typing and the cursor will be moved.
* The USB 3.0 port replicator is interesting, but I do miss just being able to drop a machine into a dock and everything including power is hooked up immediately. But its a luxury that Ultrabooks don't have.
* It would be nice if Lenovo offered some upgrade to Windows 8 when it is released, but I really have no plans for going to Windows 8 in the near term so this isn't a big issue.
Very happy with this purchase!
