but this thing was useless.

HBCharley, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Returned, this laptop does not even have enough power to run Windows let alone any apps. Crashed several times while rebooting and it would take forever to start up. I know this is low end, but this thing was useless.

Finally had to dump windows and go Mac

James B Beauvais, Amazon
3 May 2015
  • Summary: Lenovo and Windows 8.1 do not play well together. I had to switch to a MacBook I spent too much time working with this try to get it right and never could. I would be typing an email or a word doc and the cursor would jump to a random location in the file and sometime to another window.

Pass

P. Offenbach "P. Offenbach", Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: Too slow. Inadequately powered to run the installed Windows OS. Stalls constantly when using a browser. Pretty much garbage. Reminds me of my old Dell computer, which was unusable with Windows Vista installed.

Internet browsing is horribly slow even on a fast connection

redtailwis, Amazon
23 November 2014
  • Summary: This laptop is unusable for even the most simple tasks. It takes forever to open any application such as Chrome or Word. Boot up time is ridiculous. Internet browsing is horribly slow even on a fast connection. Also Windows 8 is horrible, but you knew that.

Disposable?

The Other Man "John", Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: So perhaps it is not a disposable computer but maybe it should be. After spending several hours personalizing the computer, the keyboard stopped working. A call to Lenovo took care of the issue by doing a complete system reset.
