    Small and light. Love the keyboard, its very nice to type on.
    The trackpad is not a good shape. It is slightly curved and has a rough finish. A standard smooth square pad would be better.

    A built in light or backlit keyboard would be a nice to have.

    long battery life and I can open open documents now I couldn't on my previous laptop.
    Not happy with Nitro for PDF documents as it is not as accessible, Read only function is OK but takes some getting used to. Not sure I need apps and haven't explored yet.

    Great size/weight.

    Fantastic battery life.

    Wonderful keyboard.
    Screen is a bit poor, wish it was IPS then this laptop would be perfect.

    Back-light flickers on low brightness.

    Having to enter the bios to configure the commonly used function keys as the default rather than the low use media keys (WHY LENOVO, WHY? This is a business machine not a multimedia machine!). It works fine when you turn toggle the switch in the bios.

    Looks nice (if you're into that sort of design)
    Lovely keyboard
    Powerful enough for everyday tasks.
    Plays well with linux. (Ubuntu 14.04)
    Compact, light.
    Side fan exhaust lets you use it on your bed, for example, without melting the thing.
    Reasonably impressive battery life. (but often feels like it should be longer)
    Trackpad is a bit small and not the best but totally usable.
    Just needs a bit more power, even with an SSD it's often a tad sluggish. Just opening a few too many tabs in chrome at the same time can bring it to a halt for a few seconds.
    Considering lack of power and low TDP, longer battery life was expected (but good enough)

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the e145

    1. A shopper asked on
      Hello, I am looking for a small laptop with a keyboard backilight. Does your E145 have this feature? You could try pressing the function key and the spacebar at the same time. Thank you in advance for the reply. - Michael
      1. Ken replied on
        It does not have backlight, as far as I can see but I am not running Windows (won't let it in the house, being a computer professional) but Linux Mint 17. Incidentally, this machine does not run most varieties of Linux. Mint 17 (not 16) & Ubuntu are ok.
        Best wishes,

        Hello, this laptop does not have a keyboard backlight. I have a USB powered keyboard light when I'm working in the dark.
