Summary: This is one fast Lenovo i3. I can run Google Sketchup and 3 other Animation programs without hesitation. Rendering the Animation is a minor hurdle that the Lenovo IdeaPad can leap easily. This i3 is a 2.53GHZ with 700GB and just 4GB of Ram and it does the everything smoothly.
Summary: This laptop is a great, standard laptop. I bought mine almost two years ago and it's served me very well in that time. I've been able to run just about whatever I please as long as it's not a higher level game, though most games it can handle fine.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over 2 years and now that I've ordered a desktop, I figured now is the perfect time to review it. 2 years ago, this laptop would have had great reviews from me; it was fast, sleek, and top of the line.
Wasn't available on amazon so I bought it directly from Lenovo

Summary: I love this laptop. I can't say enough good things about it. It's sleek, light, fast, with enough RAM to get the job done and I have always preferred an Intel processor to an AMD. The keyboard is a traditional keyboard with a number pad on the right.
Summary: I got this for college and love it! It runs almost silently and doesn't get overheated even with multiple programs/windows open (I may get a cooling thing if I decide to get more intensive games but barring that it does just fine by itself).
Summary: We have had this for about 2 months. It has performed well with reasonable speed and connects to the wireless with no issues. I was looking for a low cost solution for my wife and 2 kids to use. Amazing to think that it is a requirement for 3rd grade to have a flash drive ....
