Summary: bought his for my dad and he has been having problems with from day one! computer keeps crashing. and he needs to send it to repair services. it came to being way too expensive. shame on you Amazon for selling such a piece of junk!
Summary: I bought this computer and after setting it up I found that the pointer was locked in the middle of the screen and would not move. I called and called the Lenovo support line in Texas. I sent the computer there and they told me the part was unavailable, then available, then unavailable again. So they are sending the computer back until they can find "an available" part! It looks to me like I ate $569 and I'm mad as ####. My advice is to never buy a Lenovo!
Summary: Went thru initial installation. Determined I didn't like the touch sensitivity, case quality nor palm feel. Then I turned it off for awhile. Turned it back on and it would not open Windows 7. The only way I could get it to come up was to start pounding F2 as soon as powering on. Otherwise, it went into some kind of recovery routine. After spending about two and one half hours talking to 'tech' person, he wanted to send a recovery disc to reload system.
Summary: I purchased one of these, spilled wine on it, had a dreadful experience with Square Trade during which Amazon stepped up and just overnighted me a replacment. Spent 3 days loading all my stuff on this and suddenly it says it's logging off. Then it hung, and the screen started flashing all colors. Then it died. Started once normally but then flashed and died again, and now will not boot at all.
Summary: This laptop (it would be my first--I've been desktop only) seemed to have everything I needed. It arrived, I set it up via the one sheet of paper that was the only documentation (no paper warranty included, and you'll see why this mattered in a moment). I live close to Google, who offer two WiFi sites, and there are six other local WiFi services, all with three or more connectivity bars.
Summary: The computer worked for a day. Just long enough that it could not be declared dead on arrival and now it will not turn on. After finally getting a hold of technical support, we have to send it in for TWO WEEKS! When you push on the top of the computer, it turns on for a few seconds so there is a short in it somewhere.
Summary: This started as a great computer. Aside from the fatal battery issue, this machine was great. I upgraded the memory from 4Gb to 8Gb and it made all the difference in the world in terms of performance. I used this machine for work only. Remoting into networks, switch/router configs, wireless gear configs, ect. The problem I had was the battery stopped charging. At first it worked fine. Then it wouldn't charge the battery.
Summary: It worked great until I couldn't charge the battery. At that point it became pretty much useless. I researched a few fixes, most relating to a Microsoft battery driver; didn't work. Followed the fix and still had the same problem. As I needed this for field work and didn't have the time to mess around, I was forced to buy a second notebook. Be assured it wasn't a Lenovo.
