Lenovo built a nice portable performance machine here. This has a full size mobile processor (that requires a fan) and will very efficiently get work done. It performs how other i5 equipped machines do but in a smaller and lighter package.
The display is its nicest feature – a full 1080p packed into a small 13.3″ footprint. Very sharp, crystal clear and with great color.
Battery life is good for about 8 hours give or take doing work related tasks.
The only shortfalls I see here are SSD sequential write speed and an odd placement of the arrow and shift keys on the right hand side of the keyboard.
