Summary: I bought this laptop refurbished for a little less than $300, and I love it. Most of the time, it takes less than a minute to boot up, the screen is clear, and it's a large enough screen for me. I love how easy it is to type on the keyboard. The touchpad is a little off center to the left, but that doesn't bother me the way it could annoy some people. The only thing that I don't really like about this laptop is that it feels a bit cheap.
Summary: Okay, so my mom bought me this laptop in November, and at first I loved it. The touch pad and DVD opener are a little sensitive (if my hand so much as grazes the dvd part it pops open.) But I had no real problems. However, just yesterday, I plugged up my laptop for charge, and after a couple of hours upon trying to turn it on, it wouldn't boot up.
Summary: Below is the original review of this product. Here is my revision. Turns out that the laptop itself is fine. The hard drive was erased due to a virus. Not sure where it came from as it supposedly had 30 days of free protection. Guess it's intended user didn't update regularly. Will provide a later update on this product once the 'damages' have been taken care of. Apologies to Lenovo and it's manufacturers.
Summary: This computer is a pain in the ass. Yes, it will do as a cheap 15.6 laptop, but it could be so much better. The touch pad is not as good as the one I had on a 3 year old HP. On startup sometimes it says "Please wait...". But it says that for an hour or more. Is it stuck in a loop? Is it updating programs? I don't know. Eventually I force a shutdown, restart in Safe Mode, restart normally and it's OK.
OK but NOT if you plan to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro

Summary: We bought this system to be an inexpansive instrument controller. Was OK out of the box (keyboard layout takes a little getting used to, but bright screen, light, long battery life). However, when some BSODs occurred, our IT techs recommended an upgrade from Win 7 Home to Win 7 Pro both for better security as well as program compatibility.
Summary: Tilasin koneen internetin kautta kuvien ja kuvauksen perusteella. Asensin koneeseen Win7 Pro:n ja kaikki perusjutut toimivat lähestulkoon ok. Ajurit löytyvät kiitettävästi Lenovon sivuilta. Kone oli edullinen ja sen huomaa tietyissä asioissa. Näppäimistö ei ole Thinkpad laatua vaan paljon heppoisempi, kirjoitustuntuma ei ole ainakaan minun mieleeni.
Summary: Ohjelmien ja päivitysten asentaminen vie ikuisuuden, mutta esim. nettikäyttöön oikein sopiva kone, kunhan käyttöjärjestelmän on saanut asennettua. Speksien perusteella ei toki voikaan odottaa ihmeitä. Edullisuudesta plussaa!
