W540 Works Hard. I hate Windows 8.

Date:September 13, 2014
"New W540 for my son to take to school. Very powerful, runs the CAD applications and software development environments he needs. Runs fast even when doing two or three things at once. Highly recommended.
The companion wired mouse is cheap and not even worth what I paid. Not accurate and the buttons don't work well. Don't get that one, you'll have to spend a bit more to get a name-brand mouse.
We've had the machine less than 30 days and it failed to boot Windows 8. I was ready to call warranty support but managed to fix it ourselves by restoring to the last restore point. Might have failed when the automatic windows updates ran. I think we'll turn off auto updates. I think this is not Lenovo's fault, it is Microsoft's.
Also, Windows 8 is harder to use than Windows 7. Default UI is a crippled tablet interface, stupid on this non-touch-screen PC. Win 7 is not available any more at the pre-installed price, so you are stuck with 8. Until you learn to use Linux."

W540

Date:August 16, 2014
"I was very stressed ordering online and being unable to "test" laptop before purchase. But Lenovo is known for reliability so I took the risk. This laptop is AWESOME. It is exceeding my expectations in quality and performance. I am very pleased."

Everything's Great, but NOT the Keyboard

Date:June 7, 2014
"I have owned almost every one of the earlier W-series machines and ordered two W540s as replacements.
The W540 keyboard has an unwanted numeric keypad with no option offered for the "standard" keyboard available on all prior machines.
This, for me, makes the machine unusable, and the objective of replacing older machines unfulfilled.
The less objectionable embedded right and left mouse clicker, creates usability issues that I may eventually overcome.
None of these issues would be show-stoppers had Lenovo offered the "standard" keyboard as an option.
As it is, the investment made is not realized, with no plan, yet to convert to these machines. I may have to get rid of these and go with another brand."

some adjustment required

Date:May 4, 2014
"Previous reviews that note the awkward keyboard (number keys on right, as with standard keyboards, rather than top as with typical laptop) configuration are correct. You find your hands constantly one key to the right of the expected typing position. The thumb/control pad is insensitive and requires both a firm push and just-the-right strike position to function. I find myself pushing/clicking repetively at times trying to get the desired screen action; the design feels crude rather than refined. The IPS monitor is beautiful. A great laptop in performance-very fast with gen-7 processor Nice machine for photography with wonderful color. Too new for comment on reliability."
