Summary: After "upgrading" to the abysimal Windows 8.1 the wifi could not be activated. The Fn5 only switches airplane mode on/off, wifi is permanetly disabled. The driver is corretcly installed. Event professional support could not help, neither could Lenovo hotline or the forum.
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
