My last computer is a 7 year old Toshiba and it is still in good condition. I am very careful with my computers

Allen Jones, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Had my Lenevo for 15 months before the hinge broke. My last computer is a 7 year old Toshiba and it is still in good condition. I am very careful with my computers. So it was not abused. Would not recommend this computer until they fix the problem and repair all the ones with this problem free of charge.

Great Laptop!

S Frack, Amazon
17 March 2015
  • Summary: I can't see where all the bad reviews are coming from. I've been using this laptop for work for the last 8 or so months and have not had a single problem. I travel a bit and it has held up great. The keyboard seems fine to me (and yes it is back lit), as does the track pad. I've been primarily using it for Photoshop and the performance is fantastic.

Broken Hinge - terrible build quality

rahul reddy, Amazon
16 March 2015
  • Summary: Laptop worked well on processing front. But the build quality is terrible. The hinges looked delicate from day 1 but never thought it would break so soon. Opened the screen to turn on and the hinge came off at the left bottom of the screen. Its a work laptop and I just close and open the screen once a day. The metal from the hinge struck to the screen and the screen cracked and I couldn't close or wide open my screen.

Major Defective Hindge Issue

WHR2 "2rhw", Amazon
23 February 2015
  • Summary: BEWARE: Lenovo recognized a defective hinge issue, and suspended the U530 T model ... Hinge breaks off from the back of the chasse causing the plastic exterior interface to buckle and snap from the LCD to the Keyboard. Unless it happens during your warrantee period you will have problems redeeming your refund within the year period.

I bought an identical one of these from Best Buy 6 months ago

DFW Shopper, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: This is my second one which I bought "before" I found out about the problem with this exact model. I bought an identical one of these from Best Buy 6 months ago. Love the laptop from a performance standpoint but the hinge design is very weak. Hinge broke away from the lcd panel, damaging the display in the process, after less than 6 months of light use (average open and close 4 times a day). Lenovo did not want to honor the warranty.

Don't buy that Lenovo Ideapad

A. Kaylie, Amazon
20 February 2015
  • Summary: Here’s my tale and I hope you’ll indulge me BEFORE you buy that attractively priced Lenovo Ideapad. I originally bought a Lenovo Ideapad Y400p as a mid level gaming computer for my sons and a higher powered laptop for my wife and I to use when it was not gaming. It was never as fast as I thought it should be and after less than 3 months, it failed to boot. It was sent back and repaired... poorly, returning with screen damage. Then it literally fell apart.

Great Laptop, Very Impressive Battery Life

Paul H., Amazon
20 February 2015
  • Summary: Absolutely fantastic laptop. I have had great luck with mine after owning it for 3 months. The battery is great, enough computing power for most peoples uses, and the touch is very responsive although I do not tend to use the touch screen very much. The construction of the casing was one of the biggest selling points for me and I am definitely impressed with it. The build quality is able to compete with a macbook.

BEWARE BAD HINGES!

Olivia Moore, Amazon
15 February 2015
  • Summary: Started out great but then the hinges starting giving way. My hinge broke and now my screen is hanging on for dear life. It happened right after my warranty expired (how convenient). The hinges are connected directly to the screen so the entire top portion of this laptop needs to be replaced in order to fix the issue. And above that, the replacement is hard to find. And Lenovo seems to be in denial about their poor hardware design.
