Very pleasantly surprised.

I'm a die-hard Linux user, and was looking for a decent system to replace my old dual-core Celeron (broke its Ethernet port). This was a huge win for me. The Ubuntu install worked well, and the system was plenty zippy. Of course, being me, I re-formatted and re-installed -- but that's no fault of the system. Not having to pay the "Microsoft 'tax'" was nice, and the system itself is very responsive, runs cool, suspends great, and even has USB 3.0 (one port) for those zippy external file transfers. The only downside for me was that I can't upgrade the RAM -- 4 GB just isn't enough elbow room to be "future proof." But, like I said, that's my only complaint, and the 4 GB works just fine for now. Color me very impressed and pleased. Note one distinct upside that I feel I should mention: "Ultrabooks," in my opinion, really aren't. While they may be as light as the X201E, and have more powerful CPUs, the lack of a VGA port and an Ethernet jack are complete showstoppers for me. Why pay 2X+ the amount for a system that has fewer features?

Using for personal use. I like the OS. A SSD would be great quicker startups.

Good for the price

I've put a few different operating systems on this machine. I was hoping that either Crunchbang or Lubuntu would provide a lighter desktop, but neither of them agreed very well with the touchpad. It turns out that was all unnecessary; I've since gone back to Ubuntu. It's not the fastest, but it gets the job done. As for the battery, it lasts roughly 4 hours with the internet and moderate screen brightness. Then it takes 4+ hours to charge, sometimes. That gets pretty annoying. Still, it's build solid and has a fine keyboard, especially for this price. The glossy screen is unfortunate, and it doesn't have an even brightness to it. All that said, it was a good purchase in my book.
