Summary:A 12.5-inch convertible laptop tested with Windows 8, Intel Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz processor, 4GB of memory, Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics, a touchscreen, and a 500GB hybrid drive.
We have both the version described here and also the i7/SSD version. <br /><br />Obviously the i7/SSD version is faster. probably mainly due to the SSD. I may replace the drive in the i5 version with an SSD to bring it up to speed.<br /><br />The machines are well made, light and portable. If you want an ultrabook that is mainly used as a laptop but can also be used for other purposes then this is a good choice.<br /><br />In other reviews the keyboard is praised as one of the best available, showing its thinkpad heritage. I have reasonable sized hands and do not find it small.<br /><br />I find it slightly strange noting, for example, the lack of a DVD drive. It is a feature of all ultrabooks and as such is not a defecit of any particular member of that family. Similarly with a non removable battery, it may not be a desirable feature but it is almost universal for this form factor.<br /><br />The version reviewed is generally significantly cheaper than the other ultrabooks, you can often find sales taking it down to $200 below MSRP.<br /><br />Overall it works well at its aimed duty. The biggest single detriment for people who are truly mobile is the battery life of 4-5 hours, which is not enough for all day useage.
