Summary: For the most part it works well, but the DVD drive stopped working after 6 months. ********************* UPDATE: This was actually caused by an iTunes update. The drive still works after uninstalling iTunes.
Summary: This machine included 'Fake Raid Zero', something that was used many years ago to speed up machines. It does not appear in any of the listed information. I was told by a tech. that if I had attempted a back up, it would not be useable to restore my computer. The only solution was to return it (and get another one, not knowing again what I would be getting) or wipe it clean and do a re-install. I did the later and installed Windows 7.
Summary: I replaced my old Dell computer with this one. I am very pleased with the performance and looks of this computer. The only thing that I am displeased with is the non availability of a USM drive like Lenovo's ad says and is shown in a YouTube video.
Summary: I love the computer and can't wait to start adding to it as it is very expandable. As it is now it has handeled every game I have thrown at it with ease. It could use windows 7 instead of 8 but that is the only downside so far.
Summary: It's fast and state of the art. If I could have bought it with Windows 7 instead of the awful Windows 8 I'd have given it 5 stars. It starts up and shuts down in just a few seconds! I bought this along with a 24" ViewSonic monitor and am very pleased with everything.
Worked for a few hours. Next day, it would not boot up

Summary: I purchased this product and loaded WOW and google chrome onto it. Both worked fine for the first day. I shut down the computer for the night and attempted to start it the next day. I only got to the Lenovo logo and then got an error message saying the operating system could not be detected. I called Lenovo, and after some attempts at trouble shooting the issue, the representative said that the computer could not read the hard disc.
