Piece of garbage - returned it immediately

Shari M. "voracious reader", Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: What a piece of junk! It arrived highjacked!!!!! We returned it immediately. I will say that Amazon was very cool about the return. I'd give it zero stars if that was possible. Save yourself some misery and buy something else.

Screen stopped working

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Screen stopped working after a year and a half of light use: no physical damage occurred to the laptop. Lenovo wanted quite a bit of money to fix it. Stay clear of this company and it's products.

WAY. TOO. SLOW. Don't bother.

idehaemer, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought 2 as gifts for my children. They are expensive paperweights. The processor speed for the internet is not functional. It takes 20 minutes to connect, and then one character per 3 seconds will appear in your browser window as you type. USELESS USELESS USELESS. If you still want one after reading this review, let me know. I will sell them for cheap cheap cheap.

Decent laptop -- lousy warranty support

Peter Geis, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: Below comments reflect my initial experience with this laptop, which worked fine for a while. However, in October, after about 2 months, the AC port (where you plug in the power adapter) broke. I sent it to Lenovo (they covered the shipping, but I had to pay $10 to the local FedEx place to package it) to fix under warranty.

Way too slow

Melissa, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: This was a Christmas gift for a family member. He hates it because the processor's too slow. He hates the sensitivity of the touchpad.. while he's typing and not even touching the touchpad if he rests his hands near it the computer reacts as if he touched the touchpad which can mess up what he's doing. I have a Lenovo laptop that I love that's a lot faster and I also have the touchpad problem but nowhere near as bad as with this computer.

I have to watch YouTube videos on my IPad!

Michael E. Hill "Major Rassendyll", Amazon
16 June 2013
  • Summary: Let's be straight. I don't have a problem with the hardware. However the Windows 8 Operating System is absolutely the worst piece of garbage in the history of personal computing. I've had over thirty years experience with PCs. I am an electrical engineer. My IQ is high enough for Mensa and I can barely figure this machine out. First in order to watch most videos, I have to use my iPad!

Lenovo isn't what is used to be

Richard D. Mccabe "Richard", Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: The computer is flimsy: pressure on the side can cause the courser to reposition without touching the mouse pad. On the other hand, the mousepad is fairly insensitive to normal use and difficult to use. Likewise the keypad is not very sensitive. I would not buy another one nor would I recommend it.

it crashed

lola, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: This product is fine! It starts up really quickly, it's easy to get used to. Windows 8 is really odd and I dislike it. Other than that... my laptop has crashed 4 times in one week! I don't know if it was dropped or something, but something is definitely off. I'm contacting Lenovo about it. So beware.
