Long Battery Life
Laptops are invaluable for getting things done, but they're also only as good as their battery life. We take our laptops everywhere and expect batteries to keep up with us. For that reason, long battery life tops the list for many laptop buyers.
Lenovo's laptops are designed to run cool, which is one of the reasons they take little power. The less the cooling fan has to run, the less battery power it takes. (Smart air flow offers another benefit—it's a lot more comfortable on your wrists and lap to work on a cool system than a hot one.)
Lenovo laptops come loaded with Power Manager to help you easily manage your power settings. Just slide the bar towards the left for higher performance or to the right for longer battery life. Power Manager handles all the behind-the-scenes work.
Fight the dreaded "low battery" notification. Power Manager's Battery Stretch automatically turns off certain functions, like radio and Bluetooth, in order to squeeze out those extra crucial minutes of power you need to get the job done.
We set above-industry standards for our battery suppliers, and we vigorously test the batteries that we allow in our systems for safety and for long life.

Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux and the machine was seriously fast. I am also quite taken by the "book" styling, which is one up on various other ultrabooks that seem to be aping the MacBook Air.
Unfortunately, the LCD screen failed after a couple of weeks use. When I contacted Amazon they were very helpful and offered a refund or, as an alternative, provided details for a Lenovo warranty repair. I duly contacted Lenovo, who operate their European repair service via Medion in Germany and an uplift for repair was arranged within a few days. When I received a "now your laptop has been repaired" email after 10 days from Medion without any sign of the laptop I contacted the Lenovo repair service to try and ascertain what was going on and it has taken three weeks for them to determine that they have lost the laptop. I am still waiting to see if it will be replaced or a refund offered. At no stage in this process has anyone volunteered information to me, I have had to call their (UK) helpline for information or explicitly request that emails be responded to. The latest quibble seems to be that they want me to provide the waybill for the uplift, even though the laptop reached the Medion repair centre in Germany and was lost on the return journey, for which the tracking information is available via DPD.Read more ›
The first thing that impresses is the design: it appears to be very robust and elegant, and yet it is extremely light. I looked at some of the rival Ultrabooks, and they don't look as nice. Also, I haven't noticed any fan noise.
The performance is also very impressive on the applications I have used. I am not a gamer, but I do use other applications which are heavy on processor and disk. Clearly, the Solid State Disk works very effectively on this system. I think boot time for Windows 7 is around 2 or 3 seconds. Perhaps using an SSD there is an increased risk of failure compared to a standard disk - I hope mine lasts well. Of course, disk space is limited on an SSD, but it is *very* fast, and does not get hot.
The only negative which I see is the limited number of USB ports (two). However, given the price, this is not a surprise. Higher spec machines with additional interfaces within the Lenovo family understandably cost more.
The first chassis didn't fit properly and would squeak like a coffin and the second has a loose trackpad.
Would not advise buying this item unless you can give the whole thing a going over first.
