Surpassing Mobile Laptop

Date:April 10, 2014
"The AMD powered X140E straddles the line between laptop and netbook, giving the best of both. Long battery life, light and portable, roomy hard drive, RAM capacity at 8 gigs-this is the best laptop I have used. The graphics processor enables me to run Adobe Creative Cloud, including Premiere Pro, without a hiccup. Boot times and launch may take longer, but that is what you get with an ultra-portable CPU. Linux and BSD distros run like the wind on this thing though, probably has to do with the OS. Nice, comfy keyboard and screen size. The touch pad is a bit annoying when typing, it would be nice to disable when writing long documents. Otherwise, a surpassing machine at an unbelievable price."

Best small laptop at this price.

Date:March 10, 2014
Pros: Battery, Input/Output compatibility, Weight, Processor, Durability, Memory, Screen size, Build Quality, Storage, Display performance
"I bought the AMD model with the A4-5000 Processor and 2GB RAM. Replaced the hard drive with a Samsung Evo SSD, and added a 4 GB stick (RAM).. has 2 DIMMs, unlike most small laptops in this range. Works great with Windows 7 pro (came pre-installed). I wanted a matte screen and I get that here.
I bought this for productivity, not games and the performance is excellent. Will be adding an external USB DVD burner and that completes what I need.
I looked across Asus, HP, Dell and Acer, and finally settled on this one. This Thinkpad retains the build quality of the original IBM Thinkpads. Highly recommended if you need a lightweight small screen machine (and if you can build the configuration I have).

Dumbest Purchase Ever

Date:March 10, 2014
Pros: Durability, Build Quality
Cons: Storage, Video card, Warranty, Memory, Support, Input/Output compatibility, Battery, Weight, Security Features, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Software compatibility, Processor, Screen size, Display performance
"Our school bought a ton of these things and I am disappointed. The Track pad barely functions and no software works on it. It has windows 8 which makes the overall productivity 50% lower because of confusing setup. The actual laptop casing in indestructible but the inner components are always breaking. In conclusion these are overpriced pieces of plastic with spinney whir things inside."

Great little Laptop

Date:March 6, 2014
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Warranty, Support, Durability, Keyboard/peripherals, Build Quality
Cons: Display performance
"I'm running Crunchbang on my ThinkPad right now and didn't have any trouble getting it to work. The WiFi needed a driver but it was easily found on the repository in a few seconds. In my experience Linux support on laptops doesn't mean that everything works 100% after the install but that you actually can get everything to work.
Anyway... it's a great little laptop, very portable and sturdy at the expense of being noticeably heavier than similar sized laptops. The display isn't quite as sharp as I'd like and while the speakers are serviceable if you feel like rocking out to Motley Crue you'd best pack some headphones. Lastly what I really do LOVE about this laptop is that unlike many laptops now you can easily pop off the back panel and perform upgrades or repairs."

Ubuntu 13-10desktopamd 64bit works some tweak

Date:February 28, 2014
Pros: Battery, Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Security Features, Durability, Memory, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Build Quality, Storage, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: Video card, Warranty, Support, Weight, Included Software, Software compatibility
"I partly agree with the previous buyer, my choice of this purchase was the press coverage of Ubuntu working well with this laptop.
Here is how to get it to work with a little work.
1. I used unetboot to create an USB bootable stick of Ubuntu-13-10-desktop-amd64.iso
2. When booting press F12 so that you have selection to boot via stick
3. I had my laptop connected to RJ45 to internet
4. During install I checked "install third party packages"
5. After installl the laptop started with a message indicating "The system is running in low-graphics mode"
6. This exited to the terminal.
7. After quick google search this command fixed the issue after I did a apt-get upgrade
"sudo apt-get install fglrx"
I am writing this review using X on Ubuntu using the laptop.
Good luck."

Poor Linux support, no status LEDs

Date:February 22, 2014
Cons: Included Software, Software compatibility
"Despite promises of an available Ubuntu pre-install, no such option was available when I purchased. Ubuntu 13.10 installer leaves the machine with a non-functioning X server and no wifi driver.
Machine has no LEDs (other than a useless always-on Thinkpad LED) so you can't tell if the machine is actually doing anything (disk activity) or whether caps lock is on."

Great small laptop

Date:January 2, 2014
Pros: Battery, Input/Output compatibility, Warranty, Processor, Security Features, Durability, Bluetooth, Video card, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Build Quality, Display performance
"I purchased this laptop with the A4-5000 cpu and it is incredibly fast for a small size laptop. This is my first ThinkPad and I am very impressed with the build quality. Also this machine has 2 usb 3.0, VGA, HDMI, and an Ethernet port, things rarely found on a laptop this size.
The only disappointments I have are the Ethernet port is a 10/100 rather than gigabit and there is no option for a solid state drive yet.
Overall this is a great laptop for the price.
