It is a great laptop for the price

Michael, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: I thought it came with an HDMI port, but alas it did not. The touch pad is a bit glitchy at times and freezes altogether at others, but as long as you have a comfortable/portable mouse this laptop is awesome.

Fast, awesome price and so far no problems

Phuong Ha, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: I come from an IT background and needed a basic laptop as I am saving money for the big purchase of another work laptop/travel/desktop replacement and got this one in the meantime. Couldn't be happier. Not only is it really fast but it does everything I need it to without any hassle. Lenovo makes a great quality product. Note: I put in the full capacity of 8 Gigs of RAM, and got a laminate cover for the screen and backside cover. That's it.

It has its pros and cons.

linda burke, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: It came in black instead of brown, but that was not very important and I was not about to pack it up and exchange it for a brown number. It's hard to know how much it's affected by the OS. I HATE Windows 8 (they should croak at Microsoft!) and I don't know if that's what's slow or is it the computer, or maybe it's my cable speed. I have no idea.

Keyboard keys are large, Windows 8 sucks, weak speakers

S. Parsons, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: I like the large keys and the screen is very good. Seems to be solidly built. I hate Windows ; not user friendly. It also has poor speakers, even for a laptop..

Not great for heavy multi-tasking

TBR, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: The computer quality overall seems okay, but the i3 just does not handle multi-tasking very well, and I'm a heavy multi-tasker. I also don't care for the Windows 8, so I am now considering upgrading to another computer with an i7 processor and Windows 7. Will probably still go with Lenovo though, because otherwise the quality is there.

Windows 8 is a detractor

J. Grove, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: Why, please tell me, why do they mess up a PC as good as this one by installing Windows 8 on it? Were it not for that it would have gotten a much better rating. For crying out loud, MS-DOS was a better way to go! Other than that it's pretty slick.

Ok for the price

Greg L. meier, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Coming off of a Macbook, it is really a big step down. However, it does what it is supposed to do. I had to return the first one sent to me as the tracpad did not function correctly and the return time was on the slow side (2 weeks). The new one is much improved and I do thank the vendor for allowing me to swap out (i did pay the return shipping, $12), though.

touchpad very choppy

Wes Schropp, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: The computer itself is okay, but the touchpad is very "choppy" and is prone to errant functionality.
