Hesitated to by a refurbished device. But I'm happy.

Summary: I bought this to replace another Lenovo. What with tablets and all, I didn't want to plunge for the more costly device, so I got a refurbished IdeaPad B570. I had a telephone conversation with the seller and was impressed by the service and helpfulness. I've had the machine now for a month or so and am very pleased with it.
Summary: This is a solid laptop. And I do mean *solid*. It's not the thinnest laptop around, but it's well-made and reliable. Always fast enough to do everything I needed to do with it (programming, games, watching 1080p movies).
Summary: I've owned this laptop since March of 2012. The first laptop I received had bad speakers, which was immediately swapped out without question. I mainly use my laptop for blogging, running an online clothing swap store, and minor Photoshop/illustrator work. I run music and videos off of an external hard-drive. I've had no issues with this laptop. It was affordable, and comes with a number keypad! YAY!
Summary: received in a good package. started smoothly couple of times initially. problem started in 3 days. the problem started one day when i started this laptop, it doesnt start. shows ' waiting to initiate ' screen and continues to show same thing for ever. I had to reset to factory default every time I have to restart the computer. I called the seller, he told me to that it is because of some software which I downloaded. I removed every thing but problem still persists.
Summary: Computer was defective. This product was advertised as "refurbished," so there was a chance there were problems with it previously. However, I have previously bought refurbished and "like new" products via Amazon with no problem. More over, I currently have the same computer, which is very good, and wanted another one with Windows 7 operating system and "used or refurbished was all that was available. After initial startup the unit began randomly recycling off and on.
Summary: I needed a laptop for basic work and this has been perfect! Even my brother and friend have opted to purchase the same laptop. I have had it over a year with no problems at all. For the price you can't go wrong.
Summary: This laptop was my 2012 Xmas gift from my daughter. Although the laptop was delivered to my daughter by end of November I did not see it until the Christmas day. I was very excited. After using it for a couple of week I was having some trouble with the touchpad mouse in the laptop--it would constantly freeze. I called Lenovo service on January 16,2013 for assistance and after hearing a brief description of my problem i was put in touch with their software support team.
Summary: I have owned the B570-1068AJU version of this laptop for over a year. I use it primarily for email, watching Netflix, and listening to MP3's. Without getting into specific hardware specs, it has plenty of power for that. I've never tried intense gaming on it. Knock wood I've never had any problems getting the hardware to work properly. For example the web cam worked flawlessly for Google chat and the optical drive burns discs without any problems.
