You'll love it!
I bought two, one for myself and a family member. Both had the same issues with the keyboard delay after updating all drivers / software, hence 4 stars. I had to uninstall and reinstall drivers on each computer, so it wasn't necessarily an isolated incident, hence 4 stars.

Ideal for College and Art (while on a budget!)
Other: The device itself runs pretty well! The only issue would be that it's dropped my wifi randomly here and there which would only be a minor inconvenience but my only fear is having it drop when I'm submitting an assignment so I've made the habit of checking beforehand! But it is the main issue I have with the device. The speakers are also pretty decent but I typically use headphones. I've seen that past models have little raisers on the inside so the keyboard isn't smashed when you have the laptop in tablet mode but this doesn't have it which is kind of a bummer but it's workable to use it semi-folded like a tent to draw on and stays in place pretty well! I've planned to sew a thin cushion to use it in desktop mode without hitting the keys but that's just me. Overall, I think if you're curious about the microsoft surface products but fear that big price point, this is a good option! College wise, it's nice to type on and a good size to keep in a backpack

Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable review: Solid Surface Pro alternative
Given how slim the tablet is and the components inside, I was surprised I was able to get a battery life of 9 hours, 23 minutes from the ThinkPad X12. That's just about an hour shy of Lenovo's battery life claim and it's possible that was with a lower-end Core i3 configuration.

Sleek, light, quick - so far, so good!
The battery is outstanding. It seems to last about 8-9 hours on full brightness and probably 14-15 hours on half (I read online reviews where it indeed lasted for 15 hours). The processor is good, although there are better 10th generation Intel i5 models out there, but the laptop is comfortably quick. The screen is bright, the colors are accurate and feel slightly warm
