It's a great laptop, the only 2 quirks I have found ...
12 December 2014
Summary: It's a great laptop, the only 2 quirks I have found is: 1) You can't permanently turn off the touchpad. I use a mouse so I have to disable it every time I boot up AND after it goes to sleep or else I can't type, the touchpad screws up my typing. My old laptop have a button over the touchpad that disabled it. 2) It frequently gives me the error that I'm running low on recovery disk space so I have to go in and delete the old backup files.
Apparently Lenovo has a long running Fan Error problem.

Summary: In 4 months the dreaded "Fan Error" on start up. I know now I should Google an electronic product. Most reviewers review a product shortly after getting it. The "Fan Error" occurs usually after the warranty runs out, but for us it was 4 months after buying it. After searching, I found that the "Fan Error" is common, and has been around for a few years (so Lenovo knows about it, but seems to be trying to do the least they can about it).
Lenovo's latest short-coming, The "B" should stand for "Boat anchor".... Please pass on it.

Summary: This is a laptop in name only. It's much more a local bank's freebie give-away, such as when you open a hundred dollar account. Kind of a nothing for something. Lenovo happily took money from us, and gave us only the lamest, most mundane-performing boat anchor in return. This door stop is in NO WAY suggestive of the former glory which was the IBM ThinkPad. Merely dressing in black doesn't make you Johnny Cash, Lenovo.
Lenovo is a great company, I like all the extra software they throw in.

Summary: This laptop is great! I am not a fan of windows 8, and finding one with windows 7 on it, and everything else I wanted, at a reasonable price was a chore. This one fit the bill. I'm glad I scooped it up!
Summary: WARNING - Do not buy this. It's a piece of junk. From day one, the WIFI receiver regularly loses connection.. It does a worse job than my old Toshiba laptop. The connectivity issues are apparently very common, just google 'lenovo b590 wifi problem ' to see for yourself.. I've tried every suggested forum fix and it hasn't solved the problem. As if that's not aggravating enough, after 4 months of use the laptop started to randomly turn itself off.
