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.
Summary: The computer is fine but the support by Lenovo is terrible! I called with a very simple question - and got no help. I had purchase the computer two months ago - they don't offer any software support unless you pay a fee! They were rude and obnoxious. I suggest that any purchaser go to a different company. Lenovo's service is the worst I have ever seen.
Summary: Got the laptop today setup went fine when I turned it on, got to the main screen and it will not open up internet explorer, will not open up microsoft office startup, or any other programs went to CTRL-ALT-DEL and it froze it and and said the task manager was not responding. Now after going to a light blue screen then a gray screen, it has went back to the desktop with the cursor showing its in progress(the moving circular thing) to the I had this express shipped because...
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 ordered two almost identical Lenovo B590 laptops, one with AMD processor and this one with Intel I3 processor. I thought for $20 I could get one with a better processor (now it's a $50 difference in price between these two models). The one with AMD processor is working fine after 10 days but the I3 one I had to return it because the camera didn't work.
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.
