Summary: This is the story of a defective support service, 6 hard disk drives and an empty box. Back in April 2013, I acquired a Lenovo laptop (about $900), directly from the Lenovo.com site. Everything works satisfactorily until 4 months later. The laptop wouldn't boot and the error message points at a hard disk drive failure. Request #1: A quick and pleasant call to Lenovo and, two days later, I receive a replacement drive and reinstallation DVDs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
