Summary: When I got the laptop I had to contact Lenovo because it was not factory reset and I was not certain what to do. Lenovo was easy to get in touch with and I was not given any hassle to be assisted. I like many of the programs they place on the desktop that are unique to other manufacturers. I hope I find a WiMax tower to see how that function works. The description says the laptop is 750GB but was only 500GB, which is what the description shows.
Summary: Had a Lenovo V570-1066AJU since December 2011, been going strong for nearly two years, great little machine for general purpose use. Runs right along no problem and it's travelled with me all over the place. Fit and finish are excellent, all the connectors, buttons, switches, power supply, etc work as well now as they did on day 1. About a year ago swapped the mechanical hard drive for an Intel 520 SSD, what a difference - SSD is the way to go for speed (on any machine)!
Summary: I had UBUNTU installed on this computer after purchasing. All fine there, the only drawback is no Netflix, have to use Windows for that. The computer itself seems solid, it's factory refurbished, with warantee. Is quick and has plenty of memory for my uses. A huge improvement as I was using an ancient Apple. Seems like a good deal for a reasonable price.
Summary: I bought this model refurbished primarily because of the price point it hit for the features I wanted. I'm about a month in with it now, and I must say I am very impressed with it. It's handled everything I've asked of it, including some sizable database work and some fairly hardcore gaming. No problems at all so far!
Summary: I Love, Love, Love this laptop. The processor is super fast (i5) and it handles the music software that I have on it so far (finale, musicnotes, etc....) I am also quite suprised of the quality with the built-in mic and screen resolution. Thanks Amazon/Lenovo for the great deal I got on the LP.
Excerpt: I have had this laptop for over a month now, and I have to say, it is a rare gem! This computer has components in it that you normally do not find in this price range (649.99 at Best Buy). The first upgrade that caught my eye was the Intel CORE i5 processor. You normally find an i3 in a laptop in this price range, and I have not seen another laptop with this processor for this price.
Summary: Buying a new laptop is a big decision whose results could end up being with you for years. I took far too long analysing over the merits and features of each but in the end saw this in a shop, the last one and reduced by a good amount and just bought it. I like it so much I would probably have bought it or the i5 model at the original price anyway.
