  • Pros: Laptop hardware is still running smoothly.
  • Cons: Purchased an SSD to put into this. Upon realizing that the OneKey Recovery software does not have the option to burn recovery discs, unlike the Windows 7 version which gave you the option, I discovered the only way to get recovery discs is to get them through Lenovo. Once I contacted Lenovo and getting transferred 5 times, it turns out that the discs cost $70.00. Dropped to two eggs for this. PLEASE be warned that if you're planning to put another Hard Drive in here t...

  • Summary: The memory comes in one 4GB and one 2GB ddr3 sticks. There is one hard drive bay and the optical bay can be taken out and replaced with another hard drive bay if necessary.
  • Pros: The Laptop was shipped quickly, as i've become used to living near one of Neweggs distribution centers. The laptop looks very nice and was very safely packaged.
  • Cons: The OS is pre-installed and does not come with the installation disc. This makes transferring the OS from the poor HDD to a SSD a pain. Other than that no real con outside the fairly poor HDD only having 5400 RPMs. I am currently trying to figure out how to transfer my OS to my SSD

Great Notebook for a Great Price

N/A, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: My wife and I ordered this notebook a little over a month ago, and have been very pleased with our purchase. The machine is good for productivity, video streaming, and light to medium gaming. We both use a trackball mouse instead of the touchpad, so we haven’t had any of the problems that other have described. When typing, I’ve never accidentally bumped or touched the touchpad.
  • Pros: -The machine seems to be pretty powerful
  • Cons: -Comes loaded with lots of bloatware

This computer overheats constantly

Tina Hall, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Can I post a zero? I've had this computer for 6 weeks and have read everything on the internet I can find to help with the constant overheating. It is a simple problem, the fan just doesn't run when it needs to. Sometimes I trick the fan into working, but 15 minutes into a game I don't always think to run it. And I don't think I should have to. The fan not running appears to be a pretty common problem and tech support sends me a BIOS update that they just know will help.
