The ThinkPad Pen is included and features the ability to right click and left click. The internal battery will be charged when you place the pen back into its slot.

The touchpad has a soft rubber coasting, and multiple mouse buttons are at the top.

The TrackPoint mouse alternative is included and can be replaced with the classic dome or soft rim TrackPoint tops.

A nice feature is a physical slider to cover the camera. It seems to be located near the dual array microphones and a light sensor.

One of my favorite features is that when you flip the notebook into tablet mode, the keys recede into the notebook, so you don't press them. It makes the notebook more of a true convertible.

Opening the notebook reveals the special joints to move the keys into the notebook, as well as the little cooling solution. The 54Wh battery takes up more of the space, and it seems to have been shifted towards the middle of the notebook to balance things out. It's not odd to find extra weights in Lenovo notebooks to balance them.
