Summary: Not a 5-star product, but still a good laptop, and if you like the way it looks and can get it for a comparable price to similar laptops, go for it. Very much a productivity machine and I can't knock it for that.
Pros: Sleek, classy design that doesn't stand out but never looks bad. Glossy screen (I like 'em glossy). Decent CPU performance. GREAT keyboard.
Cons: Touchpad isn't amazing. Isn't a really sturdy laptop; I dropped it on a corner once and now the battery isn't fully latched in, I lost a piece of the hinge, and I HAD some issues with it powering off randomly, and staying off.
Summary: I've owned a Y470 for 9-ish months now and, although I'm satisfied with the many features of this system (e.g. the memory, chipset, screen resolution, bluetooth, etc.), I'm dissatisfied with the housing (e.g. the plastic shell/casing), the glossy screen, and the battery.
Pros: Price, size, features (e.g. available RAM, graphics card, etc.)
Summary: I purchased a V series computer from lenovo. I had an issue with the battery lock while it was still under warrenty. An internal peice of the battery locking mechanism broke and i called lenovo to inform them it had broken, they said it would be covered. A few days later they called to collect $187 for the entire plastic backing... the exterior of the computer is fine, it still is.
Awful internet and worst customer service of my life
16 April 2012
Summary: Never buy this brand.
Pros: There are no pros
Cons: Awful internet connection, Broke after 4 months (would freeze after 1-2 minutes every time I turned it on), The most frustrating customer service experience of my life - passed around departements charging me each time and never fixed my computer
Summary: It has been a troublesome machine so when they asked for $80-$110 to fix it, I was shocked. Why would I pay for a screen when mine was never dropped, hit or abused in any way, just broke (and was nearly new).
Pros: Small and compact
Cons: Slow, no keypad and the screen broke after 10 months. , The lcd goes bad and Lenovo does not cover the screens in their warrenty.
