X-Rite's Pantone color calibrator has a software application that is customized for the notebook. You can use it to calibrate the colors on your screen, but all I see is that the grays got a bit darker, but my screen might have already been calibrated. You can customize the keyboard's special function keys through Keyboard Manager.
The Lenovo Companion can change hardware settings, update your system, and help diagnose problems. Lenovo's App Explorer centralizes some applications.
You can even swap the Fn and Ctrl keys through the software, which is a godsend because I would assume most people who learned how to use a computer in the past 20 years always had the control key in the bottommost left corner. I assume it's a holdover from the original ThinkPad.
You can even optimize cooling and battery charging. Lenovo's active protection system is also intact, but I have never seen an SSD get damaged by a fall.
If you press enter during startup you get a menu where you can access the BIOS, diagnose hardware faults, recover the system, and even enter Intel's ME BIOS extension manager program. The BIOS itself has many configuration options and is very high on security.
If you want to access MEBx, the default password is admin, and you will need to set a password more than eight characters long and with at least one upper case letter, one number, and one nonalphanumeric symbol. You can also disable individual features.
