Nice, but could be underpowered for your use

Date:August 29, 2014
"Noticeably not fast even with fast processor - but that can be okay. However, I bought it to use with two 24 inch monitors and the usb 3 dock. That overwhelmed it, even just sitting there it used a lot of CPU, more importantly the wireless speed dropped to unacceptable rates when the external monitors were connected (no impact on hard wire speed). Returned the computer."

Great portable laptop that runs all day

Date:August 27, 2014
"I have been in love with ThinkPads since the late 90's, the industrial design, the ruggedness, the fantastic keyboard and the pointing stick. The X140e that I recently bought gives me all of that in a small package that I can easily whip out wherever I am and start working with excellent battery life. I work on the go, I don't sit at a desk, so it's important that I can quickly pick up where I left off. I have owned and used various tablets but none give me the ability to run all the applications I need and to touch type. Even though the X140e was designed for the educational market it feels so much like my X230T and helps me get my work done."

Sturdy and well-designed

Date:August 18, 2014
"I purchased this computer with 4gb of ram and the better of the AMD processors. As is expected of Thinkpads, the body feels rather sturdy, and the keyboard is downright amazing; there is that crisp and constant amount of pressure required to push down the keys that is just about perfect, and the keys are spaced excellently. I have big hands and this is by far the best keyboard I have used. The battery fits snugly into the back, and the lid doesn't bend. The monitor isn't bad. It does an excellent job at reducing glare, and while not the most vivid screen, it is still good. The BIOS is chock full of options, and the rest of the Lenovo software is likewise full of options and features, and good ones at that. The trackpoint and pad drivers are in the same boat. With the chiral scrolling feature the small size of the mouse pad is not debilitating. I never had used an AMD processor before, but am now impressed. It is not meant for gaming but it is more than sufficient for me as a student."

Not what I expected

Date:July 25, 2014
"Very Heavy to carry around. I have to take this thing out when I visit my patients in their homes. It's like carrying a tone of dead weight. I will return it."

Decent hardware, bad software

Date:July 23, 2014
"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.
Minor gripes:
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."
