Good points:
I like almost everything in this laptop. 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD and Nvidia graphic card are the great features of this laptop. The built quality looks awesome, not plasticky lappy. Except for some negative points I notice. good for gaming in low to medium setting. sometimes it hangs in medium setting but nothing too serious.
Bad points:
the touch pad was not really responsive and very annoying. I cant move the mouse pointer when scrolling veritcally so I ended up calling Lenovo to assist me and how to fix it. They told me to uninstall the lenovo driver for the mouse. And yes! it did work, i can move my mouse just right. however, once the driver is uninstalled all the features of intelligent touch pad will also be removed. Your mouse will function as a normal mouse, you wont be able to use the two-four finger features of the touch pad which is a disappointment on my side. I was really hoping them to fix the problem without removing the intelligent features. I hope they release a new version.

This laptop comes with windows 8. it looks cool at first, but its very complicated to use, since i like to make shortcuts and use the START, windows 8 just made everything cluttered. This OS should only be use in tablets and phones not in a laptop where u have to use a mouse and a keyboard. I also think that this new OS freezes my google chrome when searching online. Almost everyday when i use google, it hangs and freezes the web page. really hate it! So i have to use IE which is doing its job fine, but unsure if its safe to use.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Processor - The i5 3210m processor provides plentiful power for everyday use and moderate gaming. Although a dual core, it offers quad core capabilities because of intel's Hyperthreading.

RAM - 8 gigabytes of Ram provide high power for games, video rendering, etc.

Screen - 720p HD 15.6" screen provides a great visual experience. Except for high powered gaming, you could not ask for better.

Graphics - The integrated HD 4000 provides sufficient power for everyday tasks, while the Nvidia Geforce GT630m (latest generation graphics) provides high power when it's needed. For gamers, I can personally run any game at medium - High graphics at a stable 50 FPS.

Sound - the speakers on this machine are simply incredible. I have never heard this quality of sound from a laptop - it rivals that of my Headphones.

Battery Life - Good, when on power saver mode can last up to 6 hours easily. With some tweaking could last 8.

Operating System / Startup Time - Windows 8 is very easy to get used to. Very beautiful and intuitive.
As for startup time, I was worried for a while that it wasn't shutting down. Mine starts in less than 30 seconds, I can be on the internet within a minute. From sleep mode it literally takes as long as you need to type your password.

Design - Great layout, nice keyboard, volume buttons, power button etc. are very well placed.
The touchpad is beautiful. It's responsive and soft to the touch.
Bad points:
Webcam - As with most laptops extremely unclear. Only 0.9 megapixels. Not usually a problem.
