  • Summary: Thank you for this laptop. great customer service too. To Lenovo: I want to say that this Laptop is running very slowly with the 4gb RAM memory. Is not compatible to run the programs and Internet very well. 8Gb is posible to run best. I will have to buy other memory to run best this laptop.

It has features other new laptops in this range don't have

Steve "SF Lover", Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I only buy laptops from Apple and Lenovo. I love the build quality on both. My daughter needed a new laptop and I didn't want to spend a lot, so I got her this one, because, crazily, one of the reviewers here said he could play WOW on it.

um really?

timothy w., Newegg
11 May 2014
  • Pros: Just want to say all consumer grade lappys kinda suck, and we'll you could have reinstalled 8 with A FLASHDRIVE IF YOUR TECH LVL WAS LOW and knew how to Google. Really it looks decent for an Amd. Don't bash what you don't understand.
  • Cons: Someone should filter these reviews for stupidity, this isn't Am4zon.

Updated Review

  • Summary: NEWEGG HAS AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!! It is a solidly put together laptop and the non flushness of the screen was very minor. Most of these problems could be solved by a clean install of windows and a formating of the hard drive, but who wants to buy a laptop with an os preinstalled on it, just...

Hard disk failure in 3 months

K. Gordon, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: The computer is a mid-to-low-end in performance, screen quality, and keyboard/mousepad function. I purchased this computer for my son. He used it not on a daily basis, but once in a while for school work. The usage didn't justify the hard disk to fail within 3 months of purchase.

Solid laptop for basic users, don't expect over the top performance.

Lindsay Williams "LinWill01", Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a great student / retiree style laptop. Battery life is sufficient for light use and the CPU/RAM is adequate for Office, email, and other basic uses. But if you want a gaming system or video system... you gotta pay. The design is nice and slim for the price range.
