Functionality and Affordability over Build Quality is What Lenovo Went for: and they Nailed it

fob911, Amazon

  • Summary: I have such a love-hate relationship with this laptop. Let's dive in, shall we? Bought it for college. Works for that. Comes with a bunch of Lenovo garbage on it, any self-respecting PC enthusiast like myself immediately uninstalls 99% of it. Pre-Installed Windows 8 works great, except for random flashes where my computer loads things slow (although the desktop itself wont be slow, just the programs, if that makes sense).

Fantastic deal for a laptop!

Brandy Ford, Amazon

  • Summary: I've only had this laptop for a month, but I absolutely love it! It runs super fast, runs my games in high graphics with no lag or other problems, and gets the things done that I need it to do for me! I'm a web design & development / computer graphics student, so this laptop runs Photoshop CS6 and the browser at the same time without any issues! I am even able to play my music on Spotify in the background.

This laptop has pretty good power for the price

Frederick Schulze, Amazon

  • Summary: This laptop has pretty good power for the price, and I've heard lenovo was a great company, but I didn't have the same experience with lenovo as other people. I received the laptop with a few black pixels on the screen, but I decided to deal with the pixels instead of paying $50 for shipping to get it fixed.

BEAST but the battery :(

Wayne Sealey, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: Super fast and super cheap for the build. The battery life is meh but there are ways around it. I get about 4 hours out of it now through tweaks. I'm a student but I use a lot of software with heavy processing needs. This smashes it every time.

So far so good! For the price

RLS, Amazon
25 August 2014
  • Summary: I'm a Mac user but wanted to have a dedicated PC for certain things (my embroidery machine will only hook up to PC for example) so I didn't want to spend a lot on a laptop. I still needed it to be able to run illustrator and maybe the occasional video game. So far so good! For the price, the laptop preforms very well. If you are looking for a laptop that isn't for heavy gaming or serious photo editing, it's great!

  • Summary: Good for the price I paid although my least favorite thing about it is the keyboard, it's going to take some time to get used to. People said the dvd port felt tacky and fragile but I didn't mind, it felt pretty stern to me. It didn't heat up nearly as much as my old laptop, which burned my lap after an hour of constant usage, so I'm happy about that. It runs smoothly with the proper internet connection. Overall I'm pretty satisfied.

Decent laptop.

Alex J., Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Very nice laptop. I purchased this with a Samsung SSD for schoolwork and some light to medium gaming. Pros: Handles most of my low to meduim graphics intensive games. 1TB HDD. Quad-core processor. 3-4hr battery life. Cons: Completely plastic build. Keyboard can clearly be seen sinking into the case. Laptop bends with ease. Tons of bloatware. I had one more problem with this laptop that doesn't warrant a lower rating since it is easy to fix.

Just read my review

Mike L., Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: I've had this for about 2 weeks now. So far so good. I got it for $456. Seems to be higher priced now. Like other post have mentioned. It feels like cheap plastic compared to other laptops. But that is why you are paying less. You are sacrificing the external plastic casing so that the money you spend goes into the hardware inside. This LT has pretty good hardware for the price. I don't know why others are saying it's not a "gaming" laptop. Define "gaming" I guess.
