"This has been a terrible computer for me. I had to send it back for complete operating system replacement within 6 days of getting the machine and now I need to send it back again to get the operating system replaced again because the battery is getting a poor rating and the Lenovo technicians have no clue what to do about it. I only got the machine in December. And it's not that great even when it's "working". Be very cautious about this product and this company"
Pros: Battery, Keyboard/peripherals, fast accurate keys
Cons: Screen size, mouse
"I purchased this laptop solely because the keyboard is amazing. I am a writer and I can type SO FAST on this without even thinking about it. If you write - buy a Lenovo with the Accutype keys.
The MAJOR con is that the mousepad right-click is often unresponsive. I can't even use the nice red trackball because the right-click doesn't register when I use it (and yes I have played with the settings). It's very frustrating to have to right-click in a very specific way, or a few times to get it to register!! I will have to purchase an external mouse to do editing!
Keys are made VERY cheaply. The keys are already worn off where I type &I've only had the computer for a few months. (My T41 took about 4 years to wear down)."
"I have always used thinkpads which is why I purchased this one. I have been extremely unhappy with the combination touchpad/clicker. It only works about half the time- I click and nothing happens. If I had it to do over again, I would not buy this laptop for that reason. It makes me angry every time I use it."
