Summary: Product itself (computer) is great. Had too much Bloat ware loaded, and I REALLY REALLY wish it did not come with Windows 8 as it has been a royal pain. System hardware has performed flawlessly, too bad I can't say the same for Windows.
Summary: The actual computer has been great and for the price just great and I got it from Amazon inventory which was better than from a subcontractor as some were shown as Amazon gave me a month to check it out and windows 8 out and I needed it as windows 8 was a handful. At the time certain equipment had to be adjusted for windows 8, and the only reason i did not rate it higher was that when i called Lenovo for help with windows 8 and hooking the machine up I found their help a...
Summary: My roommate and I both purchased one of these to replace our XP OS PCs as we're going to have to do it someday. Win 8 takes a bit to get used to but be patient. We also received machines with 6 GB of Ram and it stated 4 GB on order so that's a plus. We're taking it slow but so far the processor, ram, hard drive and CD rom seem to be handling everything. We're not gamers, just photos and bookkeeping stuff.
Summary: It is fast and seems reliable. I HATE Windows 8 and the Lenovo software can be annoying. I'll tell you more in a few months after I've figured out all of the quirks better and had it long enough to give it a decent review. .
Summary: I needed something fast to convert videos and to use as a home theater PC. At work I have an i5 and wanted the same thing for home. Got rid of the Windows 8 and installed 7 Pro instead. I also added a graphics card and USB 3 card in the 2 card slots that were available. With the add-ons, its now working the way I want.
Summary: I bought this machine for my grandson from Amazon, LLC. So far I like most everything about the computer, it has windows 8 which should be fine when the update comes out the end of this month. There is limited bloatware on this machine which I removed. It has McAfee which I removed and then turned on windows defender much better and free. The thing was that while the box was sealed by Lenovo when I opened the box you could tell it was a re-seal.
Summary: I've been using this desktop for about six months now, and so far it's worked out quite well. I also have a Mac laptop, so like everyone else I can say Windows 8 is definitely not as user-friendly as OS X. But it's also not as terrible as everyone else is saying. If you need a Windows desktop, and are looking for a small form factor in the desktop, I think this is a good way to go. One small detail to mention, is start up is very very quick for a desktop.
