Good thing is the lightened keyboard

Cliente de Amazon, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: As stated by others, the touch pad acts randomly: sometimes it's ok, sometimes the cursor wanders by its own will. Mouse also behaves that way. It's weird. Good thing is the lightened keyboard.

Good lap top, touch pad issues though!

Jamie Porter "detbenson", Amazon

  • Summary: I had read all the reviews and saw that some people had issues with the touch pad. I thought to myself, "what's the chances mine will have that..." But sure enough, it does. The touch pad is unusable, I have to use a mouse. Luckily I'm still under warranty and Lenovo is sending me a box to return the computer to fix it. BUT now I am out a computer again for who knows how long. Annoying!! Basically the cursor jumps all over the screen without me even touching it.

NOT for us users with only average computer skills.

Robert Welch, Amazon

  • Summary: This is turning out to be a pretty good laptop, but it is only through wasting LOTS of time feeling my way around the software due to a complete lack of instructions. I am new to Windows 8 and without some guidance have been floundering to make it work. There was NO documentation in the box, not even a quick-start brochure that would have at least taught me how to turn the thing off (no, it is NOT intuitively designed).

Great performance, but had a small bug and crashed out of nowhere.

Sam Tracy, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall, I think this is a great computer and I'm incredibly happy with it. It's fast, sturdy, has a big screen (though not a touch screen, which I avoided), great specs, good cooling, and all for a pretty low price. But there was an ongoing bug with my wireless connection, and then it crashed (details below). If not for these two issues, this would get 5 stars.

speakers are horrible

gary p bendykowski, Amazon

  • Summary: for watching movies, speakers are not very good at all. also the big thing, the courser just start jumping around the page by itself. as I am typing this right now, I have to bring the curser back so I can continue typing. I don't know if it is a glitch in the system but something seems to be seriously wrong.

Not worth the price

Brunox13, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: I ended up getting this same computer (refurbished) from the Lenovo official outlet shop for $450. For that price, it is a steal, but for what they offer it here for, it is definitely overpriced, because there are problems with it: The touchpad is quite annoying, as it jumps when scrolling down - otherwise ok.

  • Summary: My old core2 duo MacBook Pro is faster than this. Disconnects from wifi intermittently. Windows 8 is irritating. I hope improved and bug fixed version is available soon.

Not user friendly

James A. Waggoner, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: In the 3 weeks we've had his machine we have identified some nice features; a bright, sharp display and lighted keyboard particularly. Also good battery life and light weight. However, the unit I received has several glaring defects. The first was a complete lack of instructions and much installed bloat ware.

Computer ok, but can't output to VGA

Stuart Sweetow "sweetow", Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought my IdeaPad a couple of months ago. Have been trying to get a VGA adapter for it. It has either a mini VGA or mini display port on the left side. I called Lenovo 3 weeks ago and ordered an adapter cable. When it didn't arrive, i called them and they had no record of my order. So I asked if i could order the part again. They were not familiar with the connector on their computer but sold me an HDMI to VGA adapter.
