I can't really rate the actual computer

SassiKassi, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • 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.

A piece of junk

Elizabeth, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: This laptop has given me electric shocks periodically since the day I first turned it on. The wireless card is completely unreliable ad crashes for no reason, usually requiring restarting it 3-4 times and running the troubleshooter each time before it will work again. Every time the laptop is shutdown or hibernates I have to go through this routine of restarting over and over.

Worst computer among ~10 computers I have used

helix101, Ebay
11 July 2013
  • Summary: This laptop was the worst: had to send back due to malfunction of one of the USB ports from the start, followed by frequent crashes leading to two factory-resets in less than a month. After spending hours and hours of reinstalling programs, I am finally giving up. I could've used it as a DVD player, but the software that came with the computer seemed to stuck at the start screen, and won't play a movie. Their foreign country service was horrible too.

Bad Experience with Lenova

E. Lanier Thomas, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: Just Received my Lenova Y580 Idea Pad. No Microsoft CD in delivery box. Called Lenova support and they say I didn't purchase Microsoft Office. Interesting b/c Amazon shows that I purchased it with MS Office. I'm shipping the computer back to Amazon and ordering a Dell. Not a good start with Lenova.

Junk!!!

B. Kirby, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this notebook. First of all the keyboard at times does not work at all even when trying to access setup or the boot menu. Secondly, the Nvidia gpu does not work display windows code 43, installing new drivers and factory reset does not fix this issue. This absolutely the worst $898 I have ever spent!!!!

Good laptop, poor support

Chris H, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: If you've read several reviews about Lenovo Support with their laptops, you know that they have a pretty bad reputation. I figured that it didn't matter much for me, because honestly, how often do you send something back for warranty? Whoops, I bought three mSATA SSD drives for this, and none of them worked. I sent my laptop back to see if they could repair the mSATA slot so that my SSD drive would work.
