While the liquid crystal display for the function keys seems like a great idea, in practice it's awful for touch typing, The switch key is right next to the escape key, and because the switch key for the LCD function key is a touch key, brushing that key while you are access the ESC key mean that LCD function keys will have change their function. Meaning the next time you reach for F2 to change a file name, or F4 to repeat a change, you will change the volume or some other unintended result. Now you have stop, look at the function pad, see that what mode it's in and change mode back to function key mode and proceed, every time you access the function key row. In the OLD world, with the Fn key, you could press two key at the same time (one effective key stroke) to change the screen brightness, turn on the keyboard light etc. Now it take some random interval between one, if you are in the right function mode, to three to scroll through the function key modes to get to the right key pad. I used to be a brain surgeon with a laser scalpel with the X series now Lenovo has just handed me an blunt axe.
The LCD function key pad is just annoying however and I could probably learn to slow down and look at the LCD pad to see what mode it was in and toggle through the modes to get the one that I wanted. Even though the Fx key are used 95% of the time. The other fluffily keys not so much. However they did the forgivable, they messed with my beloved Touch Point. They took away the tactile REAL left and right mouse keys and replaced them with a touch sensitive pad.Read more ›
I never like touchpads so I disabled it as soon as I got the laptop. As a side note, if you only disable it in Windows, it only applies to your login, meaning that it becomes enabled when you're at the login screen. So you need to disable touchpad in the BIOS instead.
Back to mouse buttons. Now the margin of error increases since 3/4 of the touchpad represents the left button. If you rest your palm while typing, you're going to have a high chance of touching it by accident. It's just not a pleasant experience.
Now let's talk about the keyboard, it's still very comfortable to type on. But I don't know who made the decision to change the layout - The caplock key splits into Home and End keys. And the Backspace key splits into a Backspace key and a Delete key. The function keys now become a row of touch-sensitive dynamic keys. This makes the life harder for those of us who rely heavily on the keyboard. e.g. If you want to do Alt-F4 to close a window, you need to make sure that the soft keys are showing the functions keys or you won't have a F4 button to hit. So what about the volume and brightness? Well, it's not there if you're using function keys. It's in another set of soft keys!
I got the touch version simply because that's the only way to get the 2560x1440 screen. It's a laptop no matter how you try to convince others otherwise.Read more ›
Now coming to the product itself.
I have been using Thinkpad for 8yrs now & have been quite content with the robustness of the product as i travel a lot & at the same time the dependability, speed & system quality. Hence X1 was the only option for me.
I would have loved to have a 512GB SSD HDD, unluckily it comes only with 256 GB & hence have to rationally qualify a heavy application to install on the system. Also the HDD CANNOT be expanded to a 512GB (i have got it checked with the Lenovo Service Center). When i received mine with Win 8, i was left with 218 GB.
The machine came with a slightly damaged (more like a dent) near the touchpad, but since i was leaving the country could not afford to resend the device & ask for replacement.
The system is SLEEK & feels like holding a few news papers together, which is a pleasant experience. The 14" screen is sure advantage over the Asus Zenbook or Acer Aspire 13" ultrabook models & at the same time giving a run on the weight aspect. Though slightly expensive than them, but Lenovo performance surely tops their performance. My sis owns a Zenbook & Aspire & X1 tops them with ease in every dept. except for the "cute" looks, as this is pure business laptop. Go for Acer if you want looks.
The touch is very responsive- the adaptive keyboard & the gesture control have been perfect to use without a glitch. Plz note in the support forums these 2 are the most common failures/ issues reported by X1 owners.Read more ›
