It is a great laptob BUT

Henry Perez "Mets Fan", Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I love this laptop but have had issues with the brightness of the screen. From time to time it grows dark and now it has decided not to work when I try to change the settings to make it brighter :o( I still use it at night before I go to bed and catch some movies in my bedroom and the speakers are great! Small and not too noisy.

Responsive touchscreen with lots of memory.

  • Summary: If you are okay with trading a little heft for some added durability, the z400 is a good value. The biggest Con, by far, is the wonky wireless card. The biggest Pro is that dollar for dollar, this is a good value. The Camry of computers. Nothing flashy, but a solid machine.
  • Pros: * Solidly constructed shell and hinge., * Responsive touch screen, * Memory and storage space, * Backlight
  • Cons: * A rock. Weighs close to 72lbs., * Wi-fi (see other reviews)is awful. Cuts in and out., * The keys are okay, but the keyboard is a bit on the flimsy side., * Keep a microfiber cloth handy. Just a reality with a touchy.

Wireless connection issues

js, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: [...] If you are unable to connect to the internet, you can fix it yourself as oppose to customer support. Use the above link on another computer. Save the download onto a flash drive. Insert into the lenovo and run. My internet is up and running now! Just needed the driver. How to close a program: The X between volume increase and the refresh button at the top. (I learned this from a previous review--THANK YOU for the tip!!!) I don't have a true opinion yet.

Poor wireless reception

K. Parsons, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: The computer is nice, but since time on my computer revolves around access to the internet, I'm very disappointed in its wireless reception. My Dell laptop, Kindle, and iphone have no trouble anywhere in the house, but I can't find a decent signal anywhere with the Lenovo. It makes time on it no fun at all.

Poor Wireless Strength

Amazon Customer "Floydster", Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: I was unable to move but a few feet away with laptop without losing internet connection due to a weak wireless signal. Trouble is not with my router as I can use my Acer laptop outside of my house and still have a strong signal same with with my iPad and cell phones. Called Levono and they were unable to help. So I will be returning. I have since seen other complaints on the Levono's forums in regards to networking issues. Too bad, I really liked this laptop.

  • Excerpt: Следует очень осторожно относиться к обновлению драйверов, особенно, видео и беспроводных устройств. Установка стандартных (от производителей этих устройств) может привести к неработоспособности ПК или ограничению функциональности .
  • Pros: Приятный дизайн, подсветка клавиатуры, сенсорный экран, низкий уровень шума.
  • Cons: Нестандартные драйверы, неудобный доступ к ОЗУ и винчестеру, ненадежное крепление шлейфа клавиатуры с материнке. Bluetoooth-устройства подключаются избирательно. Это же относится к чтению данных с карт памяти (бывает, карту распознает, но не "видит" содержимое)

  • Excerpt: Предустановленный Windows 8 мне не нравиться. Традиционно огромное количество предустановленного софта, раздражает.
  • Pros: Хорошая производительность Тихий (шумит только во время игр) Не сильно греется
  • Cons: Экран бликует и сильно пачкается Низкое качество изображения Немного прогибается клавиатура Сенсорный экран не нужен и даже мешает
