Summary: I bought this for myself to use as a work laptop. Since moving, and switching professions, I gave it to my daughter as a temporary hold until I could afford to get her a desktop of her own. I'm not getting it back. :-) It turns out that the laptop has almost as much memory and storage as my desktop in a much smaller package, and with many fewer parts.
Summary: Years after my purchase and it still works like a charm! It was a great deal on a really nice starter gaming laptop. I play mostly Minecraft, Terraria, TF2, Smite, and other games, all which work very nicely on this computer.
Summary: I have 8 months using this laptop and it's the best laptop i had in my life. In all this time it never froze or gave any problems. I use it for watch movies and series online, play video games, for work and other stuff. This laptop is really fast, when i turn it on it just takes like 3 seconds to be ready for use. I adapted really quick to windows 8 and now its one of my favorites. Speakers have a decent sound for a laptop.
Summary: I'm an IT guy at a law firm and do design and websites on the side, so far this laptop has handled everything I threw at it. Instead of the 1TB I put in a 120GB SSD and cloned the original lenovo software but other than that the laptop runs perfectly as is for Adobe Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Amazing laptop!
Summary: It took me a bit to get used to the touch screen and Windows 8, but now that I'm used to how to get around on it, I just love it and am so glad I chose it after doing some research. I would highly recommend it.
