Very bad design

Date:September 13, 2014
"Bring back the old design!!!
Bad touch pad, bad Function keys!
need to put back the function keys as they used to work!
need to put back the left and right buttons separate from the touch pad!
need to redo the touch pad to much of a movement, moves the pointer a lot when clicked.
Do not buy this model if possible get the X230"

Terrible trackpad means missed clicks

Date:September 11, 2014
"I've used Thinkpads for over a decade because I love the red pointer in the middle of the keyboard. This laptop has that key feature, but in a misguided attempt to streamline the design to mimic an iProduct, there are no separate physical buttons for left, middle, and right clicking. Instead there is some vague "zone" that's marked by a red line (left and right buttons) and a subtle line of raised dots (middle button) that makes clicking extremely error-prone, especially as the natural resting-point for your thumb is over the middle button. Since I use the left button literally thousands of times a day, this design means I miss clicking the button hundreds of times -- an annoyance that really adds up.
This is a fatal design flaw in what is otherwise an excellent laptop. It's thin, it's light (heavier than the X200 / X210 I'd been using, though), it's powerful (enough), and has surprisingly little bloatware installed.
But solid buttons should be non-negotiable."

Worst Laptop Ever

Date:September 9, 2014
"1) Functions like F2 which are commonly used is a secondary function and can be used only with Function key.
2) While you are typing the cursor moves because of the mouse/trackpad design, several times the lines have to be re typed.
3) Break button is missing, may Ctrl B will work. Absolutely non intuitive.
4) A good key is the foundation of usability of any laptop.
This is the worst I have used in my known memory."

Downgrade from previous X220 & 230

Date:September 8, 2014
"I previously had X220 and X230 and have to say I'm really disappointed with this new X240. Overall build quality has decreased and everything is so much less "pro"... It's like Lenovo had tried to approach Apple standards. A mistake on my opinion. It may be good to have an Apple to have fun but no for work...
Please bring back the previous X with much better build quality, nicer keyboard, etc... (just keep the improved screen resolution & battery life)"

X240 - Very flawed laptop

Date:September 4, 2014
"I've had this laptop for approximately 2 months. The "s" key randomly appears as I'm typing. Vibration will cause this to happen. Wireless connectivity takes about 1.5 minutes, which is ridiculous. The wireless connection gets dropped daily, while my other devices remain connected without problem. And worst of all is the touchpad, which despite updating drivers and changing sensitivity settings will many times take two or three left or right clicks for the command to take. By far the worst laptop I've owned."
