"Slow with the standard 4Gb RAM it flies with 8Gb. Screen reflections in bright light annoying, but keyboard a delight. Genuine 6hrs work on Win7 - extends to 8-9 on Linux. Pity about the lack of SIM socket (standard on the E520) - for use with cellular the 3 usb sockets are inadequate for me. By far the best WLAN performance I've enjoyed of any n-type wireless."
"I customised it for under £340, and this is how much most other basic level laptops cost. However, they would not have the build quality of a thinkpad. The only issue I see is the processor--it is quite slow."
