"The laptop is quite solidly built. Internal components such as the memory and hard drive are easily upgradable. After buying it, I bumped the RAM up to 8GB and replaced the hard drive with an Intel SSD.
My troubles came when I tried to use the Lenovo-provided copy of Windows. Some of the bundled software was rather annoying, but the worst bit was that the laptop would randomly lock-up for minutes at a time. Booting took hours. Restoring had no effect.
I ended up erasing everything on the drive and installing a retail copy of Windows 8.1 Pro. Since then, I haven't had any issues.
There is a printscreen key between right ctrl and alt.
The microphone is on the palm rest.
There were three stickers on the laptop when I bought it. You don't see Apple putting stickers on their laptops. It's ugly.
There are three LEDs that are always on: Two red LEDs in the Thinkpad logos and one huge green LED on the top. I covered them with black nail polish."
"Pros: Solid piece that fires up quickly with a sturdy rubber bumper around the display for additional protection. The black mat finish is kind in that finger prints and smudges are not very noticeable after handling. For old tech the vga port is a plus. No frills, bells and whistles but perfect for the business road warrior. Cons: No light indicators when booting up nor on the ac adapter to confirm charging. No backlit keyboard. Overall: A Big 10-4 for the ThinkPad X140e."
"Have been a Thinkpad user for about 15 years. Bought this machine to replace a Lenovo Netbook which I loved for its size. It far surpasses that machine which I loved, battery life is equivalent to ThinkPad Android tablet. Love to have the the red Thinkpad joystick back, have missed. Bought it with the AMD 5000 processor and 4gb of memory. Was a little concerned about AMD over Intel but that has gone away. Only problems are with Windows 8.1, that is not Lenovo's fault they tried to fix it with a start menu called Pokki, not the greatest but better that MS's solution. Price is great, highly recommended."
"Value was less then expected for the price paid for the unit. The sale price of $407 would be a good value but we paid over $670 for it. Also, hard drive is very slow. It should have had SSD 250 GB with it. I considered this option when we purchased it but your cost was 2-3 higher then purchasing one and installing it ourself. Overall quality of unit is good."
