IT

N/A, Newegg
1 July 2013
  • Pros: Cheap, Fast Processes
  • Cons: Comes with Windows 8, not the greatest but workable however the track pad is complete garbage. Does not respond correctly, attempted to load Windows 7 with the driver to see if it is a driver issue, but same issue occurs. Computer works great with a external input device but completely useless with track pad.

Specs good - quality bad

N/A, Newegg
30 May 2013
  • Pros: This seems to be a decent laptop for the price.
  • Cons: The touchpad was unusable on the device I got. Also, the computer would not stay shut down. It automatically boots unless you pull and re-install the battery. The motherboard looks like it has a place for 2 ram slots, but only one was populated. There's only one RAM slot.

Windows 8

Charles G. Irvine "Page turner", Amazon
11 May 2013
  • Summary: At age 82, I am not prepared to learn how to navigate this software when the laptop is not even touch screen equipped. I just use it as a replacement for a 8 year old early windows model that they no longer support . I wish I had it back.

Touch-pad is irritating

Merhaba, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: The touch-pad is the most constant irritating thing I have ever had to work with. When using the scroll pad, if you move to the left it will pop-out a right-side tool bar that then has to be closed before you can do anything else. When you use the scroll pad you must raise you finger/thumb off of it, move to the left and then you can use the touch-pad. Constant and constantly irritating.

fails at wifi

N/A, Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Summary: I read the forums and other people who've had the problem seem to uninstall the wireless driver and let windows update to take care of it.
  • Pros: For the price it has a nice fast CPU, it's extremely quiet and cool, seems to be handling everything normally. I wanted a lightweight pc for skyping and browsing so it meets my needs
  • Cons: First of all it's windows 8, you have to jump through hoops even to sign up for skype. Every single program asks you for your windows ID, but whatever.

Last Lenovo product I ever buy

Drvcrash, Newegg
24 April 2013
  • Pros: Cheap. Fairly fast.
  • Cons: Horrible touchpad. Can not replace WLAN card since Lenovo uses a whitelist system to keep you from upgrading. Tons of crapware
