Summary: I will never buy from IBM again! Constantly has errors when trying to connect to the internet. I have had this serviced twice because of the hard drive failing. The laptop was bought brand new. Now it seems like a joke to me and a paper weight.
I has a ASUS before my wife spilled milk on it and they have awesome customer support

Summary: I have had this computer for about a year. The battery is now not recognized by the computer and it is the one it came from factory. Called customer support and they said because I was over my warranty period that they could not help me.
Summary: Worst laptop ever, Lenova support ranks in uneducated spectrum. Battery is managed my software, worst design flaw I can think of. Have to plug the unit in, eject the battery every time I want to use it. Since the battery is managed by software can't get a resolution to my issue.
Summary: This unit is proving to be better than its successor in terms of build and general quality. We have two of these now, and though they are a bit thicker than the newer 17in laptops from Lenovo, they feel more durable, and the case doesn't collect fingerprints as noticeably as the newer model we have.
Summary: I bought this one for my wife to crunch videos for her work with a non-profit organization. I have an almost identical system that I bought a year earlier direct from Lenovo. She has been very satisfied with the speed and utility.

Summary: Had problems initially with "Operating system not found," but was able to correct the problem fairly quickly changing the BIOS settings. Apparently the previous owner had/had tried to install Windows 7, and the BIOS settings were set up for that.
Great if you value the performance and screen size above portability

Summary: I've been using this laptop for a year now mainly for work which involves drawing and programming tools and occasionally to play a game. The only thing I changed was dropping in a 500GB SSD. PROS 1.
