But does it run Linux?
I always buy Lenovo laptops because of how Linux friendly they are - most of the time. Recently, however, I've noticed more and more problems when insalling Linux on Lenovo laptops. I'm not sure if this is because of the UEFI fiasco, or because of the newer Linux distros, or just because of the new Lenovo hardware.

Lenovo - please make this unit available with Linux pre-installed!

16GB of Ram
Windows 10 has a system requirement of 2GB RAM. However, a few users have been reporting extreme high levels of RAM utilization that might get fixed with the next update or it could be that Windows is beginning to allocate RAM in the fashion that Android employs. If the latter is the case then, 16GB of RAM would be desirable otherwise 16GB might be considered as overkill for the average user.
