Lenovo Edge E530 Thinkpad Bootloop and Other Stuff

So, I just got my new laptop in the mail today (longest fricking time waiting for anything) and I've now had about 9 hours to play with my new Lenovo Edge E530 Thinkpad laptop. I ordered it customized a bit, with an i5 processor, matte screen, 720p webcam, bluetooth and dual-N wireless, and the Authentec fingerprint reader with ultranav. I also decided that those addons weren't enough, and as the laptop was pretty inexpensive as laptops go, I justified buying an extended battery and a Kingston mSATA 64gb SSD (solid state drive). Here is what I have discovered about the laptop in the past 9 hours.
