  • Summary: I'm struggling even to give this a one star. The biggest problem is that it's hyper-sensitive - it switches itself off if you touch any part of the sides of the base. It won't restart unless it has over 75% battery capacity, meaning you have to plug it in first. When you start it, the 'boot optimizer' always kicks in, even though the settings say it's been disabled.

Nice package but foul connection problem

Mavericka, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this product in June this year 2012 and everything was fine till i had to go upstairs to my bedroom which is where I use the internet the most and the machine would just NOT connect to the WiFi and when it does, the signal would be toooo low for anything to be done. I sold it on eBay sharpish and got myself a beautiful Sony Vaio with the same specs and much better connection. My immediate last laptop was a Vaio too and I should have stayed with it.

WARNING - DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP

You don't know what I don't know, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: I read the reviews here and elsewhere and thought it seemed the best option for a smaller laptop. I have had it 3 days and will be returning it! why? because it has twice just turned itself off for no reason. Now it is sitting at the welcome screen for over 20 minutes after logging in doing?. I have wasted 20+ hours of my own time setting up visual studio, etc.

disappointing

  • Summary: bought two of these recently... on paper these look great. great hardware / great price and lenovo usually excel in laptop kit especially in build quality. unfortunately not in this case.... both had to be sent back due to intermittent power failures. so this item gets 1 star. very disappointing.

Good/bad

astro-k, Amazon

  • Summary: The original details on here said this had gigabit ethernet but it didn't (since been corrected I think). It's a lovely netbook but the hard drive made a noise like a pressure cooker all the time, not the constant sound you expect from even the quietest of drives. Also the fan was very noisy and came on even when just opening someone basic like notepad. My NC10 doesn't even do that.

Mine is going back...

Zarkonia, Amazon
24 June 2011
  • Summary: It is actively Linux hostile. Refuses to deal with any flavour of 'X at the BIOS level. Comes infested with worse than the usual bloatware. Screen is (super!) glossy and has woeful viewing angles. Fan blows like a hair-dryer. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. (And just in case you might be wavering, avoid.) Mine is on its way back right now after 12 hours, bitterly disappointed...

  • Excerpt: Очень ненадежный аппарат. Разочарован Lenovo.
  • Pros: Довольно быстрый, неплохо собран, симпатичный на вид
  • Cons: Постоянный посетитель сервисного центра. Жесткий диск ломается 2 раз за пол года. Периодические глюки с загрузкой (возможно связаны с ЖД). Глянцевый экран среднего качества. Прожорливый (акб держит мало)

  • Excerpt: Забрал комп. из гарант. мастерской.Там что то пере прошивали (матер.плату). Все на месте. Если кто может помочь советом -подскажите.
  • Pros: Комп. на свои деньги. Видио карта живёт за счет оперативной памяти.Та что на самом деле остается 1,5-1,6Гб вместо заявленных 2Гб.
  • Cons: После 2х недель эксплуатации обнаружился дефект-самопроизвольное отключение.(в момент легкого прикосновения)Отнес в гарант. мастерскую.Там тестировали ,перепрошили матаринку. Толку ни какаго.
