    Received my X250. Everything looks fine save for a bit of light bleed and this:

    That cannot be right. Webcam cable by the hinge? Suggestions on how it wraps down?

    Hi All,
    The left USB port on my X250 runs hot.
    Meaning, when I unplug the device I left connected, the metal on the connector (of the cable or the flash drive) is hot to touch, almost painful.
    Only happens with USB3 devices so far (the only other device I've tried is a Logitech mouse dongle).

    That means the motherboard runs hot.
    And that could mean trouble down the road (fried motherboard, fried flash drive, etc.)

    Anyone with a similar experience?
    Thanks

    So I got my X250 with HDD and swapped it to a SSD, installing Windows 8.1 on it.

    Everything went on smoothly, except for the fact that the system doesn't recognize any of the network devices. Since it can't recognize the devices, I can't install the drivers, so I am pretty much helpless now.

    I have a Windows 8 key that I bought from my school and the ISO version of Win 8.1 was a non-cracked one.

    Could anyone help me out figuring out how to get my internet work? :'(

    I downloaded the wifi driver first from Lenovo's website on a different pc and saved it to a usb drive along with the thinkvantage system update app. That's about all you need to get going...

    I setup my X250 with the Samsung 1TB 850 Pro, 8 gigs of memory, 16GB of Flash on the 3rd Slot, and had it configured for the I7-5600 and 1920x1080p non-touch screen. I have Windows 8.1 Pro and dual boot into Ubuntu 15.04 with no problems. The notebook is so fast, small, light, and durable. I'm very glad I bought this notebook.

    The German Lenovo Shop offers now 16GB RAM for the x250. The X250 now became more interesting for me. :)

    I saw something like that previously in x250. It looks like someone open laptop and open lid without bottom part.

    Looks like you can get 16GB RAM now.

    Expensive, though.

    That's a pretty simple solution. Use a different computer to download the drivers, put them on a USB-stick, and transfer them to your X250.
