Summary: I've had this product for 4 years now, and I'm using it to write the review now! I only made a HDD upgrade because I found myself lacking in space, however that is not a complaint. It took me about 2-3 years before I finally bought a new HDD, so it was livable. The Pros of this laptop is that it's reliable.
Absolutely no bells or whistles; mediocre battery life...

Summary: I probably ought to have researched this purchase just a little bit more than I did, but I do like this laptop. It's bare bones, but otherwise meets the standards of quality of earlier IBM-manufactured ThinkPads. For web browsing, internet video playback, Inkscape, GPS map unpacking / updating, Skype/Google video chat and telephone calls, and photo uploading (the types of tasks I routinely perform on my G530), it's fine.
Summary: This system is much easier to deal with than I had anticipated. I bought is based on screen size, price, and knowing that lenovo used to make IBM's laptops. Figured I'd buy it and then cope with all the new system joy. Well, it did NOT come loaded up with crapware. I'm a real fan of that! I had planned on spending an hour or two removing unwanted bloat, but didn't need to.
So far excellent, but I miss the Touchpoint of the Thinkpad

Summary: Excellent. Basic powerful computer for the price. Very nice size and weight. Seems well built. the only thing I miss is a Thinkpad trackpoint navigator, and would consider a Thinkpad next time. battey life seems an ok 4 hours. screen format of 16:10 provides for a more usable and compact design. as I expected and better.
Summary: This product will be used by a volunteer in foreign country and after testing plus adding the appropriate software should be just great. The price was awesome when compared to other brands with similiar features!
Summary: I have purchased this laptop a little over a month now and it is definitely a great buy. The only issue I have with it is I have to wipe off my finger prints regularly because of the quality of its exterior but that is a minor matter. When I first bought this laptop, I thought I would not have been able to do video editing on it because of the limited video graphics but I have been using a video editing program by Magix and it works flawlessly.
