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: This is an incredible deal, anyone looking for a powerhouse computer on a budget should buy this. No regrets. One thing: you will have to calibrate the display because it's too yellow and the contest is too high on default settings. This is easy however. Intel's display settings are easy.
Summary: I truly love my Lenovo Z710! It is an awesome laptop with so many features. I considered a desktop but with the large screen on this laptop, I am so glad I went with it. I highly recommend the Lenovo and would definitely buy it again. My husband liked it so much he bought one too.
