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.

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.

Bad choice

Dave, Newegg
14 September 2012
  • Summary: Since I get the refund (minus the $100 for a bag as a "free" gift initially), I decided to but a thinkpad edge 430 instead. Hopefully the build quality can be improved.
  • Pros: Slim and small
  • Cons: screen display gone wild a couple of times and the whole laptop crashed with blue screen also a couple of time with in days I purchased. It must be a manufacturing bad sample. This is really a bad experience for me.

Do not buy Lenovo!!!!!!!!

A J, Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: Let me save you some time. Do not buy Lenovo. I've spent the past 10 years buying Lenovo laptops and something has drastically changed with product quality over the past 2-3 years. The laptop shipped with a faulty WIFI card. Lenovo makes it difficult to get support. Getting transferred back and forth between software and hardware departments is not how I want to spend my day. 3 hours deep on the phone, still no end in sight. I've learned my lesson.
