Newegg lists a CD/DVD drive in product description but my 15" model did not come with one. Not a dealbreak since I don't have use of one...

Touchscreen on this 15" model is fantastic. I have not had any issues navigating or using the onscreen keyboard. Brightness levels seem even and display is crisp
Keyboard has a good feel to it, you get a firm press while you type. The keyboard backlight isn't on by default and I had to go into the Lenovo Wi 8 app to turn it onoff. I haven't located the keyboar
I immediately replaced the 1TB drive with a 256 GB SSD. The rubber border and thin casing required that you be gentle so as not to bend the rubber too much or crack the thin casing
I cloned the 1TB drive to a 256GB SSD using Paragon OS migrate using another computer. After installing the SSD, it booted up immediately, no need to repair boot partition
Haven't been able to put the 5 through all it's paces, it did stall once for 20 seconds when downloadinginstalling modules from Cygwin
My laptop arrived with red scuff marks on lid. Haven't figured out best way to remove them
Battery is not easily replaceable (if at all
Trackpad has several issues
Mouse cursor disappears spontaenously
Trackpad stops scrolling
