Everything is great! Except for the HEAT :(

Date:December 30, 2012
Pros: Weight, Processor, Memory, Video card, Screen size, Build Quality, Storage, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: Durability, heat!!!
"I've had it for about a week now, everything rocks, lightening fast, build quality is top notch, everything feels right. Only gripe I have is heat, this thing gets hot, CPU temps that spike to 92*C when gaming, most of the time it stays in the high 70's but too many of those 90+ spikes is not going to go well for long term reliability, I might look into purchasing the additional fan...."

Worse purchase ever

Date:April 29, 2014
"Performance is not as good as it would need to be; if all cores are engaged upon boot, it crashes and reboots with no end on Windows 8 or 8.1; warranty process is cumbersome and limited on warranty afterwards. In brief: We do not plan to purchase other Lenovos ever!"

Awesome for Windows, not so for Ubuntu

Date:November 15, 2013
Pros: Weight, Processor, Memory, Video card, Keyboard/peripherals, Build Quality
Cons: Display resolution, hard disk speed, linux compatibility
"Setting up Ubuntu on this laptop is quite a task. 3 months in and I haven't found a way to switch seamlessly. I still go to the boot order to select Windows. Also after every linux-kernel update I have to reinstall NVIDIA."
