The battery placed in the new ThinkPad is much smaller because it is mounted flush into the body of the ThinkPad. This can prove to be a disadvantage because it limits the total capacity of the battery.

The aesthetics are overall quite pleasing and the screen cover is quite beneficial when it comes to protecting the LCD and preventing the screen from distortion when pressure is applied behind the panel. The main body has very good build quality which is thanks to components like the battery, optical driver, and hard drive which add to the potency of the chassis.
