LENOVO KEPT MY LAPTOP FOR 3 MONTHS AND RETURNED IT IN WORSE CONDITION

LS, Amazon
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Was a fantastic computer at first. Ran smoothly, silent, and had a super sexy exterior. I was overjoyed with my purchase for $500. Skip forward about 4 months, the computer HDD corrupt for no apparent reason. I lost so much data. I would have extracted it myself, but that would void the warranty and I just didn't have the money for a new computer.

Okay laptop for the money

R. Evans "RE", Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Not much to say about this except that it's an okay laptop for the money spent. I knew it didn't have a user-replaceable battery but this really seems like a chicken-blank way of forcing people to buy a new computer when it gives out. Lenovo certainly isn't what they used to be under the IBM brand. That said, I won't buy another one...

I bought two of these, both failed

Right-o, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought one of these for work, and within the first 6 months I was in love so I bought a second one for home. I even convinced my brother to buy one, which he did. Then it all went downhill. The work computer's HDD failed. It had work data on it, so it sucked to have to send it in to them vs. having a local shop fix it. It was a approximately 40 days without a working computer, which included of multiple shipments to and from their service center in Texas.

Way More Than Adequate

Richard Colquhoun "rick c", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I HATED the track pad until a computer geek friend turned off the "ClickLock" setting in the "Mouse" settings...I tried new drivers, etc. This was it! Works fine now. But I still like using a mouse. It's not as beefy as the old ThinkPad this replaced, but its much better than my old ComPaq or MacBooks (from back in the day). Still, it's a very solid machine. Took a little time to get used to Windows 7, but I can't really complain about the OS.

It's okay, but a warning (update)

Scott, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I have had this laptop for 11 months and it has been great. I have now had a design issue with it, the bottom plate is held on by 4 plastic tabs (< 1/8th"). Turns out these tabs are easily broken... I am very careful with the laptop. It goes in the pouch in my bag when I travel to and from work, I haven't dropped it or opened it, etc.. but now one of the tabs has broken and my computer is taped together with packaging tape on the front left corner.

Big ultrabook or little laptop?

denislita, Ebay
22 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product because I needed something mobile, yet powerful enough to comfortably compile programs on C++ and read books. The design looks cool, almost like a macbook, though this ultrabook-notebook has disadvantages too. One of them - medium (or even low) quality display (it's not even comparable with macbook). Sure, you can adjust the image, but it will still have poor colors.

One of the better laptops I've used.

chris howard, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this laptop for a friend, but I used it for a few days, to make sure that everything worked okay. I noticed that it had great build quality. It was very solid, the lid didn't wiggle, and the keyboard had decent key travel, though it seemed a bit small. For the price, it had enough processing power. Since it will be used for very light gaming, and mostly web-browsing, the core i3 processor is more than enough.

Poor design of back cover

R., Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: Don't buy it if you plan to update any of the components. The back cover is impossible to open and close. It is held by little plastic tabs which are easy to break. Very poor and cheap design.
