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.
Summary: Shipping and service excellent. Product is terrible. Starting with Windows 8, the worst operating system ever. Keyboardis near perfect, as expected, however, the mouse is inaccurate. The unit crashed 5 times in a week with no programs installed and defrag run twice on both partitions. Stupid on my part, I didnt notice it lacked a dvd drive. Useless without it to me.
Could have been great, but oversight by Lenovo made it meh.

Summary: I'll keep it short and sweet. This laptop has a great keyboard and touchpad, with basic functions for everything else. The screen has horrible viewing angles, but par for the course for cheap laptops I guess. But where this laptop really fails where it should excel is with the graphics. No, this is not a gaming laptop, but AMD's claim to fame is their integrated graphics, and they are quite nice, when the laptop is configured properly. What's wrong?
