Summary: I bought Lenovo notebook 6 month ago in JR music - large electronic store in NY with 1 yr. warranty. Then bought 3 yr. extended warranty. I was surprised to find out later that my warranty status was showing it almost expired. When I called them, they gave me really hard time updating it. They actually made me to go to the store and recover 6 month old receipt for it even though I was ready to present them. It took many calls, hours and aggravation.
Summary: We were searching for a light laptop to work during traveling. We got a better rate in Amazon. When it arrived, the battery was not fitting properly. The plastic hinge was coming out. Laptop was lightweight but the plastic seemed to be of poor quality. We returned and Amazon fully refunded it.
Nice laptop, but beware of poor construction quality and bad customer service

It was handling everything I have no problem. It was even playing my mp4 1080p movie. Cons: 1. It came preinstalled with tons of junk from Lenovo. I had to reinstall Windows from scratch as soon as I got it.

When i first recieved the laptop i struggled to connect to the internet, which on my ...
Pros: Light laptop, easily portable, and durable .
