... first laptop 10 years ago and how heady and sturdy it was

Summary: I remembered when i purchased my first laptop 10 years ago and how heady and sturdy it was. Laptops are not the same now days. My laptops back then lasted me almost 10 years and I do not expect this one to last me even half of that. Very light weight and not as durable.
Summary: Overall, I think I like it -- pretty sturdy, functional, etc. The keyboard is fantastic. A couple of problems: the built-in mouse buttons above the touch pad were working sporadically and have finally stopped working entirely (after about 1-2 months). Touch pad mouse clicking still works, though, so not a huge inconvenience.
... decisions based off of them sometimes as you get great reviews and then terrible ones

Summary: I have never written a review on here before and find it so hard to make decisions based off of them sometimes as you get great reviews and then terrible ones. I got the item on time and straight out of the box it started shutting down and faulting to a blue screen. Could not install updates or do much of anything without it shutting down to the fatal blue screen error.
Summary: It is good for this price. Can keep up with some online games I usually play. But still have some problems. First, the operating system is Win7 professional, so changing language is more difficult. Second, the cpu is not so good. I just received my laptop one week, most of time it was fine but I experienced high CPU usage (90-100%) and high cpu temperature one or two times.
Summary: The computer is nice but moves as fast as an i3 computer. But I do like the windows 7 a lot. If you are looking for a fast computer this may not be the one your looking for. I do really like the keyboard.
Summary: I have always like Lenovo products. All the Lenovo products (thinkpads) I have bought in the past were very good products with excellent quality. The quality was obvious immediately upon opening the box. Sturdy feel of the overall frame, nice strong sturdy feeling lock to keep them closed and professional feeling keyboard with excellent feedback just shouted "quality".
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this. My goal was to get a laptop for under $400 that ran Windows 7. I began to lean toward a refurb higher end Dell business laptop but when I came across this I decided I would rather have a brand new unit. My previous low-end Lenovo laptop worked well for me for 3 years but I ended up getting rid of it when the cover broke off the keyboard section.
