Summary: 2GB is not enough for anything any more. With that said, it's not going to break the bank to pay $30 for 2 more gigs of ram... with 4GB and an SSD, this computer will be the ultimate browsing/movie computer for under $500 including the upgrades. If you're like me, with a desktop with 4TB HDD, I just stream movies off my desktop onto my laptop and use a 64GB SSD for the OS and the few apps that I have on it like skype, google chrome, VLC, and all the drivers.
Cons: 2GB RAM(not sure why they didn't just throw another stick in there... 2GB will barely run windows 7)
Summary: I was unsure as I awaited this purchase. I needed something with Windows 7 since my new Windows 8 laptop screwed up FAST! So far, I love the Lenovo. I think I made a really good decision this time!
