    thanks for that. I had been steering that way but the price was daunting. I use a thinkpad and have tried to suggest buying a refurb x220 or such to shave a few dollars. we shall see. I'd like to see the flood of haswell-based models to come before he pulls trigger, as battery life is really important to him. [don't throw a rock at me, but I have suggested repeatedly that he get an ipad mini for most of his purposes, save the laptop for heavy finger work]
    we'll let this one slide on by.....

    Quick question. Does the board only support one drive at a time, or can I have a 500gb HDD and 256gb SSD installed at the same time?

    Also if I wanted to just replace the 256gb SSD with a larger one, what drive would I need specifically? A link to a good 500gb replacement would be awesome.

    I will be getting a Lenovo flex 14 soon, and have storage concerns with the SSD, if I go with the high end model.

    I would like to buy the Flex 14 with i3-4010U CPU.
    The specs tell that the ethernet adapter is only 10/100mbps, is it correct or not? Seems strange that a end-2013 laptop is not gigabit compatible.

    I believe a lower end Intel chipset is used to save costs.

    can you take a higher resolution but straight down picture of the ports in this picture?

    I feel like it has a M.2 port next to that big black ribbon.

    I confirm Jobine's reply. It's indeed a M.2 port. I haven't found any models here in Thailand supplying models with M.2 ssd so I don't know if the BIOS supports it. I don't have this laptop anymore, gave it to my father. Replaced it for a Y510P which unfortunately doesn't have the M.2 port soldered on the board.

    fantastic. I guess I'll keep this laptop when it arrives. Going to be a great media machine, especially for the super cheap price.

    I'm getting a Flex 14 too, with i5, 8 GB RAM, and 500GB HDD, thinking to swap the HDD with a 256GB SSD. But my question is how to obtain the product key from the current installed Win8? Thank you!

    You should use a tool like Belarc Advisor.
