I bought this last time around and I love it. I was skeptical of the low-res display, but it’s very easy on the eyes.
I doubled the RAM to 8 GB (for no reason). PNY RAM from Best Buy didn’t work so I returned it and bought from Crucial and it installed without a hitch.
Keyboard is fantastic even with the missing Thinkpad nubby pointer.
Couldn’t agree more. Very zippy little notebook. Don’t let the CPU fool you. Any loss in cpu speed is more than made up for having an ssd. Boots way faster than my i5 work laptop. The screen is beautiful for only being hd. Great value. Strongly recommend. Probably getting another for the kids to play abc mouse.com. The keyboard, trackpad, and build quality is light years ahead of their chrome book.
I just bought this from Amazon a few days ago. I wiped it and I’m now running Linux Mint. Great little laptop. The keyboard is fantastic!
Bought one the last time they were up here on January 21 and am desperately trying to justify buying three more. It is just that good.
forgot to mention… When I ordered it last time, I got it very fast. Don’t remember if it was next day or in two days, but it certainly wasn’t more then 2.
Have any of you played 264 and 265 codec video and in what res with this?
Two days for me. My shipping notification said it would be about 8 days. Was surprised when it arrived in two. Also, the MFG date was 12/30/2015, so these aren’t old stock that’s been sitting around in a warehouse.
So the touchscreen works well with Mint?
Oops, sorry. I guess I got the non-touchscreen model. I’m almost OCD when it comes to touching displays so I’m good without it.
Ummm…how are they calling that form factor an ‘ultrabook’??
I bought this computer the last time it was offered and I think it’s a great little computer. The ssd makes it fast to boot and I love win 10 pro. It doesn’t get hot like my other laptop. It’s a chunky little thing but I’m happy with my purchase. And, for the price, you can’t go wrong.
The other folks posting are correct, the thinkpad keyboard is the best in the business. They kept all the goodness that was originally baked in by IBM for reliability, durability and feel.
Has anyone used this laptop to run MATLAB? I understand that I can’t do massive simulations, but I need to be able to solve Riccati equations on at most 5 order systems, anyone got any experience with this?
And for the fun side of use, has anyone tried games like KSP or Don’t Starve?
Thanks in advance!
Comments & tips from previous woot sale:
I bought this laptop last time it was available (exact model with touchscreen). I did try KSP on it…not the greatest experience, but admittedly I didn’t spend a lot of time tweaking the graphics. GPU is by far the weakest point on this laptop.
Last time this model was available there was confusion about the RAM being onboard or upgradable. I can confirm that with the n2940 processor you CAN upgrade the ram to 8gb which I did just fine. There’s maybe 5 screws and HD, ram, and battery are easily accessible. As configured with the n2940, 128gb SSD, and Win10Pro this model would cost you around $850 if you bought it from Lenovo. Manufacturing date on mine was from 12/2015.
Overall, a great buy. My wife got the $200 version w/o the touchscreen. This model is definitely worth the extra $70 just for the screen. Viewing angles, colors, etc are much better even if you don’t care about touch.
Does anyone have any experience using this for taking handwritten notes using OneNote or other applications?
