Summary: Lenovo is the consumer branding for IBM, so, it's an IBM and they've had long enough to get it right. And they have! I got an extra 4GB memory installed just for good measure, and it has 1TB of hard drive, so the result is that everything runs seamlessly and with great speed. The overall feeling of this machine is that it is very sturdy and simple which makes it bullet-proof. Its silent running is a real PLUS.
Pros: It's fast, silent, and it starts up very quickly.
Summary: Great workhorse of a desktop! Exactly what I needed, just added some more memory (upped it to 16GB) and go! No unnecessary hi-end gaming video card which usually just drive the cost way up, just raw power of i7. Recommend to anybody who needs a powerful reliable working system.
For hard working users... gamers should look elsewhere

Summary: Awesome tower for those interested in doing serious office work while multitasking with desktop publishing and even video authoring apps. Super fast USB 3.0. NOT the kind of platform for those interested in gaming and non-productive senseless activities.
Summary: I got this computer, and within a week (yes, you read that right) I had to call Lenovo's customer service for technical issues. Now, I know that there are lemons sometimes, and you just have to deal with them. But I only had a week! Anyways, now I got a replacement computer, and it's working JUST FINE--after a couple adjustments from a computer nerd friend of mine, and some added memory. I will not likely be buying Lenovo again, but this computer will do.
Summary: Purchased 3 of these computers from Computer King. Asked that these machines be shipped with Windows 7. The windows 7 version they shipped has problems doing Windows Updates, after several attempts, Windows prompts and says Reverting back.. I decided to do a fresh install, but the CD that were shipped were Windows 8. Contacting Computer King was little to no help.
Summary: I bought this unit to replace an ACER Veriton I7 that just wouldn't stay up. (Would run for up to 2 weeks, or 3 hours... In any case, the Lenovo has been completely solid, am running Linux Mint Olivia (15), and several EDA applications (Cadence, Mentor, Synopsys etc.) so far, flawless on the memory I bought for the Acer.
Summary: I really wanted to start using Lenovo, but my concerns were confirmed. Let me first say that the seller was great about the whole experience. It's got to be tough selling a product that has consistently disappointed. The computer wouldn't boot and the bios couldn't be accessed. I'm sure this would have been a powerful machine if it had only worked. I don't know the reasons (hard disk, motherboard, etc?), but I'm sure it wasn't the sellers fault.
Summary: Replaced our old PC's running our POS system. I love the fact that you can easily remove the CD-ROM drive. Take out a couple of screws and you nearly half the size of it. Plus now you have a portable CD drive. :-) Bought 2 of these. Been running our registers for over 2 months. 16 hour days. Constant use with 7 peripherals. No problem.
