Good computer - bad keyboard.

iska-75005, Ebay
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Pros: - it does the job, works quite well, with no internet drop; - it's fast (at least 2 months after purchase); boot time is real quick; - it's quite light - even though you'll need to bring the charger with you at any time. And it's rather elegant. - quite a lot of space. Cons: - the keyboard is bad, I have to be careful that every letter is written; - the touchpad, even though not too bad, isn't amazing; - very little battery life: about 1h45 of autonomy - although I...

Do Not buy Lenovo!!

DKM Integrated Software Solutions LLC, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: The computer seemed to work ok, it was only $435.00 so the expectations weren't huge. I use it for work, I wanted a lower end unit for basic work, email, spreadsheets, etc. After a flight the screen went crazy, it started rolling in a very tight band in the middle, you could make out what was there but had a heck of a time clicking it. I looked it over and there were no cracks in the screen.

the recovery key is stuck and not working

Sudhir Upreti, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: i know it's a refurbished product. But i think they can be better in quality. When I got it, the laptop shell wasn't properly closed together. It's as if someone opened it but didn't bother to check if it's put back together nicely. But the worst thing is that the recovery key button at the side was stuck inside, you couldn't use it. I tried fixing the button, but there was something wrong with the plastic that you couldn't touch the connector properly.

Good hardware, reasonable price

Zomas T., Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: The laptop arrived on time but included limited printed material on its use. Its lightweight and looks sturdy. It has a fantastic modem that picks up the faintest Wi-Fi signal and good basic software. The touch panel is pleasant to work with and responds nicely to most gestures with no delay or mistakes. As other people pointed out, the windows 8 master software has significant and annoying flaws and prevents from further enjoying this new laptop.
