It's a budget entry level Lenovo machine. It's not a mid / top range Thinkpad. Put any thought of that out of your head. Put any thought of a "Lifestyle" product out too. It's not a gaming machine either, or a graphics workstation. It is what it is and aimed at entry to mid level computing.

You get a 3rd generation Ivy Bridge chip (Core i3 3110M) which is a 10 - 12% clock to clock cpu performance improvement over the previous Sandy Bridge equivalent. The bigger bonus is on the integrated graphics side, it gets a 40 - 50% performance improvement (HD4000) from the older Sandy Bridge HD3000.

As of now, writing this, most comparable priced laptops at this price point (< £300 - £330) are shipping (getting rid of) older Sandy Bridge chips with HD3000 graphics. So this Core i3-3110M Ivy Bridge with HD4000 laptop gets the nod over any of those for me. Same for the AMD E series chips that laptops at this price point seem to be using, although if you want energy efficient, low power options things will be different.

Laptop build is reasonable, weight not an issue if you weigh over 50 pounds and have opposable thumbs. Looks are subjective, but utilitarian seems to fit the bill. I don't mind the way it looks personally, it looks understated with a black / carbon faux brushed metal look. Keyboard could be better but it works and like most Lenovo laptop products, most stuff is replaceable if you know what you're doing. Viewing angle is sensitive which is a minus but once you know your working position it's a decent quality screen and the HD4000 graphics do better than anticipated.

Loved if from the moment i saw it, i am quite tech savvy and well when i seen this laptop for the price i jumped at the chance to have a new laptop. and for £299.99 it has it,s positives and negatives like other reviewers the screen is most definitely not an ips panel nor is it even an amazing tn panel but the screen is usable and well for £300 what do you want. The keyboard i actually like the spacing seems good for me as i am used to style keys and am very fast typing on them and i hardly make any mistakes until it comes to capital letters due to the shortened right shift key but other than that the only other complaint would be the amount of bloatware it comes with which i instantly Uninstalled. As For the good things Audio was the first really amazing thing i liked it is very loud even without speakers and quality is amazing. next performance is great at this price with the 3rd gen intel core i3 processor with hyper threading which competes with amd true quad cores. look are amazing and slimness is quite something else i didnt imagine it to be quite so thin. As for battery life listening to youtube videos and browsing the net currently 74% and stating 5 hours left in the tank which is amazing compared to my last laptop which was more like 2 hours with a new battery. currently using the laptop for designing with corelDRAW which it runs flawlessly.

Honestly the best laptop in my opinion for the price while it lasts if you are looking for looks, performance and something slimline that's good battery life for on the go.

Also for anyone buying one you should disable bluetooth to save battery and also my battery performance will be better than stock due to the removal of most of the constantly running lenovo apps that are not needed.

also there is a free upgrade to windows 8.1 in the store which i would suggest getting.

i bought this for my son as a replacement for a desktop meant for internet general use , it has the same i3 chip but a later generation as my laptop , it is decidedly quicker and more efficient than mine , and for the money is an excellent pc the only let down is it is loaded with that absolute load of rubbish windows 8 ( what an insult !! ) but this can be ameliorated by downloading classic shell ( free and 10 times better than 8 ) also it is applicable for the free upgrade to windows 8.1 ( although i failed to see any difference ), there are no instructions for this but really good tutorials can be found on youtube. an excellent pc let down by the software ( but all new pc's have win 8 !!! )

I bought it in july, and it was a great laptop. Fast, and easy to use. However, out of the blue, I went to charge it and it wouldn't charge. This was only just over two months after I bought it. I Lost all my files and documents, if it wasn't for my relative with the same laptop, I would of been well and truly done for. We discovered it wasn't the charger as it worked in an identical Lenovo laptop, this was very inconvenient for me and amazon could only offer me a refund and not a replacement.
I wouldn't recommend this product as it is not reliable and caused me a lot of stress.

Bought this for my mum as her first laptop. 3rd gen i3 processor with 4gb ram is more than enough for the web surfing and basic word processing that she wants to do. Only niggle is that the keyboard lacks a quality feel which let's down an otherwise fine product
