Summary: So frustrated at all of the ads that are loaded on...I guess as part of the freeware. Almost ready to pack it in. Adjusting to Windows 8 is bad enough, but with a new ad popping up every minute, it makes me run for my iPad. Loved Lenovo in the past....doubt I will buy another unless they discontinue this practice. It's so unnecessary. I am growing to hate them!
Summary: Buy this computer for basic work. Therefore the price is reasonable for equipment of this type. Not the latest technology, but buy it for a young student who starts and needs to learn. Recommended if not required to perform special tasks.
Summary: Purchased this laptop because I needed an affordable machine to connect me to my online classes. About a week after the amazon return policy expired the screen on my laptop stopped working. I take great care of my belongings - my last computer lasted nearly 8 years before it became ungodly slow. Now I'm stuck with a broken Lenovo laptop that amazon won't accept as a return and a horribly outdated computer. Worst experience ever!
Had to send it back period key did not work right.

Summary: I have another Lenovo which has worked for years without any issues. I am using it now as a matter of fact, but I wanted to upgrade and let my daughter use the old one. I got the other and the period key never worked well had to be pressed hard and several times, I thought it might just have to be cleaned or broken in, but it never worked. I returned it. I bought another through lenovo and it worked ok for a month (g510) and then it just went to white screen one day.
Summary: I purchased this computer for combination personal / business use, and it is meeting my expectations for that. It is plenty fast for me, and I have not had any problems with it. I see some have complained about Windows 8, and one good thing is that you can upgrade to 8.1 at no cost. Also, there is an excellent tip here on Amazon on how to avoid the opening screen in Windows 8 and open the screen up more like Windows 7.
Summary: I want to know if I do have the chance to trade this computer I bought to a window 7 again. This particular computer is giving me many troubles. It is too complicated. To use the computer I must read a manual that comes with the computer if not I won't be able to use the computer. It is not fear.
