The laptop was purchased on November 19th. I found an authorized store on the ThinkPad website, in Shenzhen Huaqiang North. The laptop features an Intel Core i5-7200U processor, NVIDIA GeForce 920MX, 4G RAM, 500G HDD and 14-inch FHD screen, yesterday. I bought an 8GB DDR4 2400 RAM and a LITE-ON T9 256GB SSD.
In general, this generation of ThinkPad, in the appearance has done very good, moderate thickness, but relatively heavy. There is a little more surprising is that you can open the entire notebook single-handedly, the top cover can be opened 180 degrees, the display back cover feels very comfortable but easy to contaminated fingerprints. Heat outlet at the bottom of the notebook, but not on both sides, the heat dissipation is very good.

I am about to take delivery of an E470 with a 256Gb SSD. I want to replace it with a 512Gb SSD. I notice from the pictures there is a white ribbon cable glued to the silver foil. Can the disk be removed from the holder without having to unstick the ribbon cable.
