So far so good. Everything is solid except the keyboard
30 September 2015
Summary: So far so good. Everything is solid except the keyboard. There is a little bit of "mush" in the middle keys but not enough to make it annoying. It is not quite as fast as I expected which could be do to the the hybrid vs completely solid state hard drive or the lower voltage laptop based Core I7...

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.
Summary: Computer is great but 2 annoyances. First it comes loaded with a lot of junk apps you don't need or want. Second - the keyboard is not great. The space bar sticks quite frequently so you have to hit it extra hard to make sure it actually puts the space in.
Summary: Too bad Lenovo did not test out their laptop before putting it on the market. They should actually TRY their products out to make sure they work correctly and fix the bugs BEFORE selling them to the public.
Pros: Good solid construction. Dependable. Great looking laptop. Speedy processor, big hard drive. Runs all types of games without a problem.
Cons: Poorly construction touch pad. Just accidentally run a finger across the touchpad and the screen suddenly grows to 400%. Strange windows open up etc. if you touch the pad wrong. To solve that problem I bought a Logitech Cordless Mouse and it works great.
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 has a lot of things going for it. The Intel Core i7 processor can handle anything I want it to do with ease and never gets too hot or loud while working. The display is sharp but has a glossy finish, so if you use your laptop outdoors or in really bright rooms often, this...
Pros: Good specs, great screen resolution and brightness, good graphics, decent integrated speakers, easily customizable, strong build quality, 2 USB 3.0 ports, never gets loud or terribly hot, runs Ubuntu 14.04 flawlessly.
Cons: Very short battery life, hypersensitive touchpad, slow HDD, weak wireless card.
Summary: This computer could easily sell for over $1000 dollars. I got it for $850. If you are a gamer and find its on sale, definitely buy it.
Pros: It looks great, has a backlit keyboard, and most importantly, runs BF4 in Med/High settings with plenty of FPS. Other reviewers touched on this topic but it was a pleasant surprise to find it plays blu-ray discs.
Cons: Like others have said, the keyboard dips in when you type. it's not a big deal but the plastic is very cheap and flimsy. Also the 8GB SSD doesn't show up in windows explorer so i guess it's just a paging file embedded in the HDD? It doesn't phisically have one inside of it so i don't really know ...
Pros: Given that the machine's got an onboard 840M, a mid-range Nvidia GPU, you're not going to get especially impressive graphical performance; with that said, the strong i7 chip coupled with a solid 8GB of Dual Channel RAM makes this machine good at running low-demand games like League of Legends at ...
Cons: There are two small issues with this laptop: the battery life is quite short given that it's a 4-cell battery powering strong hardware and the built in mousepad is, to me, a bit counter-intuitive. If short battery life is a deal-breaker for you, this is definitely NOT the laptop you'd want; batte...
