Summary: Aside from the operating system (don't get me started), this computer is perfect. The image is clear, the sound is beautiful, and it runs so quietly you can't hear a fan at all. BUT the keyboard is hard to use. The keys are sticky, tall, and noisy. So if you are comparing cost, make sure to include the cost of a replacement keyboard because you won't want to use the one that comes with it.
Summary: This computer is OK but not perfect. Three days after we purchased it, the internet function went down. After many calls to Lenovo, we were able to re-boot the system entirely and restore the internet. The service people were competent and helpful (I could even understand them as they spoke English with no accent). After this poor beginning the system has run well.
Not sure why so many complaints. Hardware works fine. Win 8 another story though.

Summary: Great unit for the price. Has Win 8 OS and is loaded down with adware and apps but I'm okay with that. IE 10 was biggest problem (a pop-up ad nightmare)...Use Chrome browser with Ad Block Plus and you'll be just fine.
great computer on one condition that i need an answer on

Summary: Got this on a pre black friday deal on amazon for $499. So that was a steal. Everything looks great, ez set up. My only one qualm. I downloaded many apps on the computer, but when i try to download Facebook, it says something like, your specifications or capablities don't meet the requirements to download this app. How can a desktop computer not be able to download the facebook app? Our smartphones can even download a facebook app.
Summary: I would say I'm an average late-20's user: internet, music, movies, Microsoft office and some games. The computer runs perfectly smoothly and haven't had any problems at all. Storage capacity is excellent, and even though I can upgrade the ram, I don't see the need. The only downside to this computer is the speakers. It sounds okay, but the biggest flaw is that it doesn't always have enough volume.
