Summary: I like this computer. I've been using it for a couple of weeks with no *major* snags or problems, and for the price I paid ($500) it's a very good deal. There are, however, a few annoying minor issues I've encountered so far. One thing is the battery and battery life. Obviously the battery doesn't last as long as the maker claims (that's kind of--sadly--to be expected); it lasts about 3/3.5 hours when I'm just running normal processes like searching the internet and...
Summary: I have owned MANY laptops before this and i have to say, the heat this thing generates is way to high. Right now, with the computer idle and only firefox open, the temp is over 125 degrees celsius. the lowest it has been since i turned it on was over 100 degrees celsius. I do not know if my product is defective or if the people at Lenovo don't understand cooling, but this is way to much heat.
Pros: Fast CPU and the dual graphics are a good addition, overall a very fast computer and a great value for how much it costs.
Summary: This laptop is so weak. My laptop often auto shutdown when I am browsing many tabs on Google Chrome. After many time I found that the CPU of this laptop is so weak. I bought a new one and gave up this laptop. In fact, this machine is so cheap but you can spend more budget to get a same one with a stronger CPU.
Summary: It was fast delivered in very good conditions. I don't know why I was expecting more from a Lenovo. It's working just ok in regards to speed. Windows 8 it's not my favorite for a non touch screen, but it's acceptable if you don't expect much from a laptop.
Summary: I like the laptop in general, it's just the little things that add up to make it frustrating. Examples: There is no option in the BIOS to have Num Lock on at start-up, like EVERY other computer ever made. I guess to be fair there are almost no options in the BIOS at all, which brings me to my 2nd, MUCH more annoying flaw. One of the reasons I bought the 505s is because it has the A10-5750M Richland APU which is the only one to natively support faster 1866 memory.
Summary: I felt like I was in the 80's when I unpackaged this, and after I got the fork lift put away, I found it to be a very nice machine, just a bit big. But it does the job. I am not sure whether its Window's 8 or the machine or both, but I consider it slow for a 6GB memory machine with a fairly high powered chip. Levono has always been my go-to brand, and it looks like they did a nice job here.
Summary: Loses one star for the delivery experience - parcel was thrown out the back of the delivery van, parked right outside my property - something to note should you opt for .com delivery. The unit works fine despite its early experience of flight.
Summary: I got some crappy design when I expected to get the gunmetal finish from the picture. Bought it for my mom so I haven't actually tried it....she claims you have to press the keys down hard for them to respond. They offered to take it back so I could reorder but said i still may not receive the one from the picture, so I didn't bother. I don't think it has 2-finger scroll which is a letdown, but I'll have to investigate that further.
