Good Value for Money

  • Summary: Higher speed laptop for under $500. Windows 8 is a pain but no choice on that anymore. Seems like internet surfing could be a bit faster but not sure if it is laptop or my connection.

Laptop illiterate

  • Summary: Bought this unit on the advice of a trusted computer saavy friend. I am still coming to terms with Windows 8 (learning curve) but I like the tiles and the touchscreen. I don't use the tiles as much as I do the plain old browser. (prefer Mozilla to Netscape) I bought a sound bar from Logitech...I stream a lot of video and need better sound than the adequate basic speakers the unit comes with can provide. Image is nice and crisp.

  • Summary: It's a big computer, but it's fast, and it has lots of storage. Exactly what I wanted, and I'm a full time student.

Beautiful color - but no indication of Caps Lock

  • Summary: I hate buying a generic black laptop - in the past, I've found a peacock blue one and a bright red one (both Toshibas). I've been a loyal customer of Toshiba but reviews for their laptops haven't been so great lately, so I took a chance with Lenovo. I'm very pleased with this laptop overall - the chocolate color is more subtle than past laptops, but still unique. Setup was easy and I like the slightly raised keys on the keyboard.

I love my laptop!

Eloisa Thurman, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this laptop for months now and I absolutely love it. The only drawback is the battery life. It doesn't last quite as long as some other laptops. Overall, it's a fine laptop for me (a college student and online shopping addict). This would be great for anyone! One more thing: the picture is more brown than the actual computer. You can barely tell its brown, only in certain lights. But, the color barely even matters.

Good but Caveats

  • Summary: Lenovo blew it on the restore procedure, warning!
  • Pros: Good LCD screen LED backlight, decent brightness/average view angle. Keyboard is pretty good. Lenovo has a site forum for help.
  • Cons: WARNING: Lenovo's official method (on Win 8 models) to make a restore USB thumb drive (you can't make restore DVDs) DOES NOT WORK, it's a known problem, check the forums. If you buy this, you need to hassle with Lenovo to get restore disks BEFORE warranty goes out.

Caveat! Almost Perfect..

Jeffrey Bergman, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Great laptop all around. Good with gaming, phenominal all around/....... EXCEPT.. Came pre installed with Mcaffe or whatever and when I deleted McAffe (Internet protector crap, most internet options for security are pre-loaded into a pc) it messed with my files a bit. Dunno why, but was very irritating. However, Lenovo is a very good company. And I STRONGLY recommend this for ANY PC user. Do not spend a lot of money on a Wal-Mart brand. Get the best. Forget the rest.

  • Summary: Make sure to get the trackpad driver or use a mouse
  • Pros: Very good laptop for gerneral use (internet, email, word processing..)
  • Cons: Track pad is very touchy at first, i had to download the Elan driver to fix, but since that it has been usable.
