Great computer for Windows 8

  • Summary: I upgraded from a HP Pavilion dv6500 (purchased at Best Buy) and have had the Lenovo about three months now. I have been very impressed with it. The case is light yet sturdy and I love th color. The touchpad is huge compared to my old laptop--so huge I still right-click on accident because I don't expect the buttons to be where they are. The screen is bright and the resolution is beautiful.

  • Summary: The computer is ok but I could be in the middle of something important and the settings menu comes on the screen and then it goes to the desktop. Very irritating.

problems

Timothy W. Moraca "10% hippie, 100% incan", Amazon

  • Summary: Seems good (you know, as long as you ignore the Windows 8 start menu), but I've had problems with the laptop since I first got it 2 months ago. There are battery problems... which Lenovo knows about considering there is a firmware upgrade on the web site... but this did not fix my problems. My laptop won't boot unless it's plugged in. The battery is fine; I can unplug it after start-up and run on battery for a normal period.

  • Summary: Lenovo (formally IBM) tends to make pretty good laptops. I use mine for business and it does the job. Can't complain.

Decent product but horrible customer service

Rafael, Amazon

  • Summary: I actually bought this laptop off newegg a couple weeks ago, it has a decent feel and a solid build for the price. Things start getting annoying when i see it has UEFI with secure boot, add in the fact that you have to unassemble the whole thing to reach the hard drive and memory for and upgrade and you can start to feel they really don't care about the customer.

Very pleased. Detailed review.

  • Summary: How it looks: It looks lovely.The white does not pick up marks or fingerprints at all. As for inside it is really snazzy. The backlit keyboard is a great feature. I always, always use it, I can't imagine a laptop without it. The keyboard is so easy to type on and everything is laid out how you would expect. The screen looks great all of the time. Apart from there is a tiny bit of glare but this really isn't a problem.

  • Summary: Overall I'm very happy with this computer but I've had to knock off a star because the HDMI output doesn't work and I had a lot of trouble gaining control over screen brightness. The keyboard brightness turned down OK but not up! So it took a lot of google-ing to find a solution. Apart from those points, a great computer.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 October 2014
  • Summary: The Lenovo is great the windows 8 program is frustrating even now 12 months on I can't say I like the program at all. Touch screen is excellent tracks well. One criticism is the onboard battery - within 6 - 8 months the usable unplugged life was less then 15 minutes not impressed with that I have been told that it is a software issue not the actual battery itself - but if it was replaceable I would have bought a spare at the time of purchase as in my experience laptop...
