Jonathan , Cambridge, UK Business user

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
The keyboard other than the touchpad is responsive and the display is clear even in bright sunlight. The processor is fast and the machine is light making travel easy, especially with the long battery life.
Bad points:
The trackpad / touchpad's single bar which provides left, centre and right mouse click functions is inaccurate. I use the trackpoint all the time (that's why I buy Lenovo) and when I use the bar to peform left or centre mouse functions in over 30% of instances, the action does not work - meaning you have to click again or worse still, accidentally move items on screen because instead of scrolling up and down (centre mouse function), you are dragging files / icons because the bar has misinterpreted centre click for left click functionality.

This makes the touchpad signficantly unreliable, especially because I am a fast typist and need accurate keyboard / mouse functions in order to work at speed.

For these reasons, I will not buy another Lenovo with this single bar set-up

Edward, London Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic keyboard. Feels well made and solid. Good screen. Fast start up and shut down. Reliable. Fantastic customer service (even when I changed my mind after ordering).
Bad points:
For some reason Lenovo still can't make 'mouse' buttons (in this case the sides of the track pad) that without them making an agricultural clunking sound. Despite changing the sensitivity several times, I am still finding it difficult to make them work reliably.

David, London Business user

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
First one I bought had a motherboard failure
Second one I bought had a corrupt install of Windows out of the box
Third one I bought continually ground to a halt due to poor drivers and required continual updating, culminating in a clean install of Windows.
It should be such a good product, but engineering quality has dropped since x220, OS is terribly unstable, in all very disappointed. Stopping sale of all Lenovo laptops & Desktops to clients based on these three machines.
