  • Summary: The laptop works fine so far, thankfully. But I was not sent a battery. Now I'm looking all over for a replacement one. I'm hoping this was an honest mistake on their part.

Daniel Jenkins, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Thought I was buying the configuration that had the DVD drive, but instead I got the one with a graphics card. Already through away the receipts so I'm stuck with it.

Good but not great

  • Summary: My company bought this for me and I've been using it for a couple days. Loaded up Windows 8.1 Enterprise to remove all the bloatware. The laptop works fine; the display is good and the keyboard is better than good. However, there are a few problems.

Just OK, disappointed in Lenovo, quality and possibly design issues

amazon_fan, Amazon
2 September 2013
  • Summary: I have owned several thinkpads over the years, including several after Lenovo took over the computer line. This is the first Lenovo I have bought that is a real disappointment. I'm not a gamer; I just wanted the performance, large disk space, and graphics for photo work.

I found the fix for the touchpad

Mango Ngazi, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: First thing's first. After over a month with this laptop and doing what I assume everyone else has been doing to try to deal with the touchpad by lowering the sensitivity, I've finally discovered that the fix for the touchpad is to move the sensitivity all the way to the left.

If speaker sound quality matters AT ALL then do NOT buy this.

Keith, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: I read a lot of reviews before buying this and NO ONE told me how awful the speakers sound. My old Sony sounds at least 5 times better. They are supposed to be high quality "JBL" with Dolby but dont be fooled. It sounds VERY muddy and you hear bass rattle at low volume and there is NO treble.

It's the little things...

Benjo, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: I wanted so so much to love this computer. Its specs are unbelievable for the price, and the ultrabay and backlit keyboard are major bonuses. It has a great array of ports (side note: the product description says it's got 2xUSB2.0 and 2xUSB3.0 - this is incorrect.
