Summary: I bought this refurbished directly from Lenovo. It worked fine, but after 10-11 months, the desktop basically died (lost power) while in use. Then I had to deal with the so-called Lenovo Customer Service, which meant talking to people in the Philippines who give you variety of promises that "somebody will call within ___ business days" or even set up specific times someone will presumably call (or email if they can't reach you).
Summary: I ordered this machine because it had Windows 7 on it. I don't want Windows 8 so I am going through the process of returning the system. On another note, I tried to boot the system to determine if it just had the wrong documentation but I couldn't even get a BIOS display. As a follow on, the dealer and I have come to an amicable agreement on this system. Just be aware that despite what the product listing says, the system now ships with Windows 8.
Summary: A great buy for a busy household that also runs a small business. I needed something that had some get up and go while toggling through different windows. This Lenovo does the job! Set up was an absolute breeze! I've never had a PC set up so easily and quickly. Windows 8 takes some getting used to (syncs up with my Windows 8 Nokia like a breeze), but the Lenovo Windows 7 desktop screen is a great option if you are stuck in the old Windows look and use.
Summary: Ran right out of the box. Looks good and runs fine. Would have given it a higher rating except for the fact that I had some trouble getting the DVD to work. Had to use Driver Restore to fix it. Other than that no complaints.
Summary: Purchased mine for $245 + tax ($259.64 total) at office depot (clearance computer - new never used) and for the price paid, I am very happy. I remember the days of paying over $2 grand for a computer with 1/1000 the computing power and storage (mid 1980's) this little buddy is quiet and great for all the things I need it to do (word processing, spreadsheet, surfing, and some photo and movie editing) I'm not a gamer -so video speed is not that big of an issue.
Summary: This is a basic level PC. It works great; is not a speed demon but I did not expect it to be. So far it has been reliable and even though not a "speed demon", it is fast enough for my tasks which include occasional photo and video editing and DVD authoring. Web browsing, e-mail, MS Office products and others work fine with no noticeable lag. Not being a gamer, I cannot speak to its performance in those application. For the price, it is a very good deal.
