  • Excerpt: An astonishing value in a flawed gamer machine with a lousy scratchpad and a keyboard with a mediocre layout but good keypress action. This is a Flawed machine in every sense of the word.

Excellent laptop

A. Lam, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: I've been using this for about two years now, and haven't had any problems with this laptop. The best feature is that it has an mSATA slot for an SSD. While they can be expensive, this SSD is excellent to put the operating system on for faster boot times, leaving the other hard drive for storage.

Great specs, build quality was sub-par

Brandon, Amazon

  • Summary: The specs are outstanding, and the software was great with little-to-no bloatware. I actually enjoyed lenovo's energy management app and have been using it for over a year. My only gripe about this is the build quality. I had a dead pixel right off the bat, but there's no way I'd wait for a return. Another dead pixel or two popped up over my year of using the laptop.

I can't really rate the actual computer

SassiKassi, Amazon

  • Summary: I made the mistake of buying a used laptop because the price was right for me. It was supposed to be certified to be as good as new. But it arrived with no booklets, disks or any kind of paperwork whatsoever. There were two stickers on the back with Windows product key's on them, but one sticker had been rendered useless with a big black permanent marker x through the key.

Legit laptop

Samuel Buck, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought it from Lenovo but its a great laptop. Its fairly sturdy, but it is a bit heavy. I switched out the 1TB for a 250GB SSD and then took out the Blue-ray drive and put the 1TB in with a caddy so that it would have two hard drives.(boots from off in 14 sec.) the small SSD slot is nice but the price of a small SSD is just not worth it yet in my opinion.

If only

  • Summary: I found that Cell Locker has very fast shipping and when a problem arose with the computer, their tech response was immediate. I was very impressed. Even though the computer had to be returned, I can see myself purchasing from them again.

The machine is great!!

Krasimir Ivanov, Amazon

  • Summary: Runs every game I had in mind, including black ops and bf3 and bf4! There is one drawback though - after several weeks of use, the laptop is loosing part of the its "premium" paint. It makes it look trashy. For gamers who don't care about htose little things: this is computer with good price performance ratio!! Definitely happy with it!

Excellent laptop

Chris Brynczka, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very powerful desktop replacement. Beautiful look, keyboard, and screen. Downside is that this notebook is heavy and not very portable. For me this is not an issue but buyers should be aware.

Ah Laptop.

Jennifer, Amazon
7 August 2013
  • Summary: For the price, I bought it for $900 Sept. 2012, IT'S GREAT. Now let's get real, it overheats quite easily, sometimes i'm just browsing the web and it o/hs. Quite annoying. DO NOT GET RID OF LENOVO ENERGY MANAGEMENT! If you do, the laptop will always use the on board graphics. Lid has 2 dents, very soft, might wanna take good care of it. The keyboard is one of the most comfortable I've ever used. The touchpad is a bit annoying, esp.
