Summary: Great screen size and adequate speakers. Quick start up time. Powerful enough for my data analysis toolkit. Wish I could have this machine without the DVD Drive. What is the purpose? Came with minimal software to uninstall, and had a free upgrade to Windows10. Windows10 isn't the worst...
Summary: This is a decent laptop. Both my father and I have this, but I switched out the hard drive with a solid state drive. The difference is astounding, as everything is so much faster with the SSD.
Summary: If this were a more expensive computer, I wouldn't give it four stars, but really it's excellent for this price point. I can use it at client sites and not worry that it will slow to a crawl editing online documents and spreadsheets like my netbook did. The keyboard is good, but not the best.
Summary: This notebook was my last choice since the reviews were so disparate; I took into account reviews of both the A10 and A6 versions of the machine. Both versions of the machine are considered the e545 model.

Summary: I am a Mac user, but got this laptop for my wife, who wanted something similar to what she was used to at work. This laptop exceeded my expectations. Admittedly, as a Mac snob my expectations were fairly low, but this is a very capable laptop.
Satisfactory if you're looking for an economy laptop

Summary: I was initially looking to buy a W530, the machine I use for work for durability reason, but I was happy to find this machine instead. Note that Lenovo no longer sells both models. You have to get them from places like OEM Genuine or some individual sellers at eBay.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over a month now, and I'm impressed. In the box there is a disk for Windows 8 if you need it (I can't imagine why you would), and the computer is already loaded with Windows 7. The laptop itself looks nice, and feels sturdy.
