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. It initially had Windows 8 but I requested Windows 7 Premium , I'm just not a fan of Win 8. Pricing and delivery were fair and on time Thanks mrjm for making this a pleasant buying experience.
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. The keyboard felt very nice and the touchpad worked very well.
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. But now that I've had it for such a long time, I've become pretty dissatisfied for what it had become. The laptop came with a bunch of useless programs that most people will never use and only takes up time and memory.
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. It comes with really cool face recognition software for logging in. It also comes with Microsoft Office Starter 2010 which is really great. It's not a trial program either.
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). For this price, probably one of the best deals you're gonna find. I spent months looking at different laptops and was pointed to Lenovo by a friend. I'm very glad that I listened to him.
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 .... I do not like to wait for machines to work and I wanted something with some speed that would not have to be replaced next year. This looks like it will do the job.
Excerpt: If you are a college student, no doubt you need a laptop . Depending on what you are majoring in will help you decide on the amount of power you need in a laptop . If you are looking for a laptop for heavy gaming, this is not it. However, with a Core i3 processor and 4 GB of RAM, this laptop will do fine for multi-tasking, internet surfing, light video editing, video streaming, and word processing. I have had it for about 3 months and love it.
