It is ok. It would have been better if Lenovo would have included 2 thunderbolt 20GB/ps ports, 1 VGA (uninformed people don't know that vga runs circles around hdmi, and that hdmi was originally developed to protect content - one day hdmi will be as good as vga - but not today, the only reason they are getting rid of vga by the end of the year is because of hollywood - they only want digital hdcp I/O), 1 displayport, two internal 2.5 bays, two internal msata slots, support for 64GB ram (damn intel for this and the stupid haswell release that is limited to 32GB). Backlight keyboard (if it is the cheap keyboard, might as well support several colors). Trackpoint is the selling point for me - won't buy a laptop without the trackpoint - Lenovo should get rid of the useless trackpad on a laptop such as the W540 - waste of space (first thing I always do is disable it). Ged rid of any type of speakers.
