I have to admit that I was blinded by some positive tests in the relevant platforms and media and – which was much more cruicial – my own experience with high class ThinkPad machines. So nothing to euphemise – that’s what you get when you blindly trust a big business concern like Lenovo. It’s completely my fault that I’m a displeased owner of an expensive but cheap piece of plastic. Sadly there seem to be no replacements on the market atm, either significant parts like a trackpoint, enough USB ports or a high resolution display are missing, the casing is even more worse than the one of this rattletrap or the internals are too lame to sell them as a „workstation“.
Oh, and not to forget: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2015/02/19/lenovo-caught-installing-adware-new-computers/
Update: Aaaand Another one.
Update: Oh dear. Really? Not charging batteries not found to be „genuine“? You guys at Lenovo *really* suck big time.
Anyway. Now that I own this crappy piece of downgrade I feel like I have to make my concerns public to prevent at least a couple of people to get trapped by some clever PR.

A new mastering device available in the Calf suite! The Multiband Enhancer spreads or reduces the stereo image and is able to add some harmonics – on four separate bands individually! For example: reduce the stereo base of your bass band to get more punch and spread it on the highest band for more air and stereo image. Monitor what you’re doing with the tiny goniometers in every band. Add some harmonics in the mid bands to raise the presence of your signal without changing the loudness – Multiband Enhancer really enhances your mix.
Ja, ein Beitrag auf deutsch. Aus guten Grunde – endlich ist Citizenfour mit deutscher Übersetzung erhältlich – vermutlich aber Dank der deutschen Rechtsprechung bzgl. öffentlich-rechtlicher Inhalte im Netz nicht allzu lange.
Also schnell FLASH deinstallieren (wie, Du hast echt noch FLASH auf Deiner Kiste?! Weil sonst die Werbung nicht so geil flickert?), um das Video in der Mediathek als HTML5-Version zu sehen und dann mit Rechtsklick->Video speichern unter… auf die Festplatte bannen.
