In my eyes, the Thinkpad design language is beautiful. The device is a dream to use, with a great keyboard, great feel, great speakers (no Beats required!), and amazing battery life considering the power of the machine. Mine has a core i7-2760QM , Nvidia Quadro 2000M, FHD screen and a 9-cell battery. This laptop has two problems: It's power brick is MASSIVE, and the drivers that accompany the trackpad are the worst. By switching off the default trackpad multitouch gestures and using twofingerscroll.exe, I have a great multitouch trackpad; shame that the drivers out of the box are so bad. Other than those two quibbles, I have had an amazing experience with this laptop, and would highly suggest that for any college student/young professional who wants a laptop that can do "everything," look no further than the W520.

I absolutely love the W520.
