Shiny... Check. New... Check... What more could you want?
Here are the five best and five worst things about it
- 1600x1200 screen
- 2Gb RAM, expandable to 4Gb
- Feels pretty solidly built (unlike some other laptops I've had in the past, mentioning no model numbers...)
- Has a fingerprint scanner.... nice little gimmick. Seems to work quite well if your fingers are dry
- Feels fast
- Comes with a tool that thinks it knows how to configure the network settings better than I do. It doesn't.
- It's a little too big for a travelling user but I'd rather big and robust than small and broken.
- Lenovo have changed the standard ThinkPad power plug. Arghhh!!!! Apparently it's because the new models need a higher voltage but still...... gone are the days when I could swan along to a meeting without power, knowing I could borrow somebody else's adapter.
- Err... that's about it.... there's not much not to like
It's great. I just wish it didn't have that network configuration tool whose name I'd better not mention. (I should mention that most of my colleagues swear by that tool so perhaps it's just me).
