"So far, AWESOME!"4.5 starson by ubiman
Pros: Fast, great wireless, just overall great package!
Cons: Ports on side, no win key.
Summary: I read cnet so many times but never contribute, so I'm trying to do my part
Small little things make this great: comfortable keyboard, little light for keyboard, external volume controls, great ibm config software, solid construction, and I actually have become quite fond of the utilitarian look. The performance/weight ratio is incredible for this machine. I have a 64mb Radeon 9600 in a 4.9lb form factor! No laptop (or very few) laptops can perform such a feat, usually they'll give you some intel integrated junk.
I remapped right alt key to substitute as windows key. Just google "remap windows key thinkpad" or something of that nature and you'll find a solution. In addition, I have a docking station so connections are now on back -- basically negating all my cons for this computer.
Had it a month so far and LOVE it! Just got a waterfield laptop case, mini-dock II, and external HD to make this one lean machine
