|gintang||I also returned this laptop. As most of you I have issue with touchpad and wireless. Not sure how people like this laptop.|

|mikequad3||Just received mine yesterday and its been working well. The manufacturing date on the bottom looks like Nov 2012. Hopefully they worked out the kinks by then. Haven’t had any issues with the touchpad or wifi but i'll see. Great solid built computer for $475. Love the backlit keyboard.|

Bought this lappy couple of weeks and paid $549 plus tax..had to call Lenovo twice to due to the wireless issues. The WIFI turn off by itself and there is no way to turn it on by ourselves. The so called functions keys to enable/disable the WIFI doesn't work either.
As I couldn't deal with these issues, I ended up returning it. Staples even offered some discount if I like to keep it, but felt it wasn't worth it. Hope this helps some one thinking of going for this laptop.

I don't have much knowledge in the X series, but that's good to hear that the X series are holding up. I think that the X series was started after Lenovo acquired the thinkpad line, that's why I didn't really know much about them. The W series are basically the same thing as the T series, just (a lot) more stuff packed inside. Regarding advanced video chipsets in laptops, they really shouldn't be there in the first place, haha. I agree though, the NVIDIA chipset is not too great in lenovos and I am not sure why it causes so many issues. It's still continuing to do so to a degree. They haven't really figured out too well when to enable the chipset when the user requires it, so it ends up running pretty poorly. I tend to have mine forced to run globally because I notice it does not turn on for some video games. :/

|forumz||anyone get theirs shipped yet?|

This can be debated, but I don`t consider the X61`s heat not to be as big of an issue as the T61`s manufactured prior to August 2008 with an extremely high rate of failing Nvidia chipsets.
I`m also a big fan of IBM/Lenovo, Panny Toughbooks too. My latest Lenovo is a X230T and it`s been great, in my opinion, the best of the X Series by far.
If I was asked to choose between either the new T`s or W`s, give me the W please. Kind of a trick question though, because there was no wrong answer!

|vannan||does this model have the same wifi issue and coil whine high pitch noise like the u310 or u410. I got a u310 on clearance from staples, like it alot, but have to return it b/c I can't stand that noise.|
