Great review. 1) Can you tell me is there any keyboard flex ? I've been spoilt by old IBM Thinkpads and can't stand any keyboard flex
2) I've always wanted a powerful, switchable graphics 11" laptop. Would you buy this or wait for the new generation of Win8 machines ?
Thanks for your opinions
Thanks Cliche, glad you liked it.
1) Nope, there's no flex, I've added that to the review.
Indeed, ThinkPad keyboards are still the best in the laptop market by a long stretch! If you're after the best mobile typing experience, Lenovo's the way to go.
2) That this is. Personally, I'd wait, but that's because I'm a screen quality snob and want a compact yet powerful convertible machine with IPS/MVA screen - and digitizer! So I'm pretty picky :)
TBH waiting can't hurt, but at least in terms of components this is a pretty safe buy. I'm also not currently aware of specific gaming laptops of this size on the horizon that would improve notably on this little monster.
Hope that helps and good luck with your decision!
Thank you very much for your replies, very helpful !
You're welcome :)
Do we get hit with customs charges buying this from abroad now? I just had to pay extra to get a book delivered from America, which ended up doubling the price! Dread to think what a PC would cost in taxes...
11" for Gaming seems a little inadequate. Personally, I would prefer to pay a little more for better specs. Had a look at the Lenovo IdeaPad Y580, now waiting for the Gigabyte P2542G to reach retail for comparison.
