Very delicate screen - Use it as desktop

amit gupta, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: Its flimsy screen has broken twice. The first instance happened when my wife dropped it from 6 inches on a mattress. I got it repaired at Lenovo service center. But the new screen lasted for 6 months before it's backlight suddenly stopped working. This time i could see a very faint screen.

  • 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
14 June 2013
  • 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.

Bad Lenovo Service

Rafael S., Newegg
13 May 2013
  • Summary: The Machine comes with UEFI secure boot which can be a pain if you wana upgrade the hard drive. To reach the hard drive and ram you have to pretty much unassemble the whole laptop.
  • Pros: Solid build, looks good, nice specs
  • Cons: The machine does not come with the Windows 8 product key that is associated with the license already paid for in the price. The Lenovo Customer Service kept insisting on selling me a new one instead of providing the key the was already paid for.

Exactly what I was looking for

Ryan W., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • Summary: It's color is "chocolate," but it is so dark that it is almost black.
  • Pros: This is a great computer for the price and I am happy with it so far. At work I'll often have four or five programs running while also streaming music and at home I'll watch streaming video or play some games that are moderately graphics intensive. The laptop will get warm but never hot with this...
  • Cons: The speakers are on the bottom of the computer, which seems like the worst possible place. If it's on my lap, any sounds are muffled by my legs, but when it's on a hard surface, it actually sounds decent (for laptop speakers). When I move from one wireless internet connection to another (home to ...
