Garbage

John C., Newegg
6 November 2014
  • Summary: Lenovo deliberately crippled this device to be non-upgradeable. If that doesn't bother you, buy an Apple. Either way, I'm done with Lenovo.
  • Pros: Not enough to outweigh the cons.
  • Cons: BIOS is locked to prevent using non-Lenovo add-on cards like a better wireless / bluetooth card.

Buyer beware no Windows 8.1 if you buy this Labtop

  • Summary: Well I tried to update the OS to 8.1 via Windows Store as instructed. I now own a $500 brick with a black screen that will do nothing except sit there and the start switch blinks. Can someone explain to me why this wasn't pre-loaded with Win 8.1?? What a joke!

Bad production line

Anne T., Newegg
16 December 2013
  • Pros: None, Lenovo's technical support is a joke.
