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: 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.

WillHC, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: Overall the laptop appeared good. The speed was ok and it felt well constructed. However, after 2 months an "ink blot" appeared in the lower part of the screen. It was sent off to be looked at and I was told that the screen had cracked and we had to pay £123 to replace the screen, or pay £44 to have...

A lemon.

Hamish Kemp, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Returning for these reasons: "Unacceptably slow - takes over 30 secs to open apps. Apps regularly claim the PC is not connected to the internet when the network icon says it is (and has maximum connectivity) and when other devices on the network have no issue.
