"Almost everything you'd want in a hybrid."4.5 starson by FLmediamaker
Pros: Quick, quiet, versatile configuration, solid build, nice display
Cons: tinny speakers
Summary: Got mine from Staples for $799 and I consider this good value at that price. The build quality is excellent - rubberized black matte finish over aluminum means tough and light but no scratches and not cold. Excellent keyboard, solid hinge for swivel screen, makes a really nice tablet for cramped spaces like plane seats and is equally good for reports and even editing quick HD video clips in the hotel room.
Some reviews talk about the slow benchmark speeds for the GPU so I was surprised to see this portable performing comparably to my Dell Precision that has an Nvidia GPU that was twice the price of the entire Thinkpad.
Install all the available updates when you get it. This will fix the screen rotation issue (instructions say wait ten seconds after start up and this solves most problems) and the sometimes odd mouse behavior. These are very minor issues.
Speakers stink but sound is fine out of headphone jack. I go through a lot of computers in my line of work so usually view them all as strictly hardware, but I think I'm going to become attached to this little beauty.
