Consumer review (which.co.uk)

Which? response to Nik - SSHD or SSD?

  (Rating Hidden)

Hi Nik, Thanks for your comment. You're quite right - the M30-70 does in fact feature a hybrid drive with an 8GB flash cache, and not a full SSD. The Full specification tab and review will be updated to reflect this as soon as possible.

Compact, light and sleek looking . Good performance so far. Responsive mouse and antiglare screen

The keyboard is very easy to use but the more pressure needs to be applied to the space bar when typing.

lenova notepad had to be returned.

 

Had to return this item as it was impossible to use. It frequently froze, it frequently returned to home page for no apparent reason, it was unbelievably slow, in fact simply unusable.
