Summary: As per J&R website the laptop box contains "Software Bundle: Windows 7 Professional 64" but I did not receive it. Contacted J&R but was told be that Manufacturer has stopped supplying the Windows software bundle separately, however, after 2 weeks of pointing this out, J&R is still marketing it without changing the specs on their website. Their product specifications are clearly misleading.
Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15" 0301: Basic, average build.
14 December 2013
Summary: I have had my Thinkpad edge now for 2 years. I bought a Thinkpad as my last laptop was an IBM Thinkpad, I loved the quality of them, so didn't want to move away from the Thinkpad even though Lenovo had taken over from IBM in making the Thinkpad range.

Summary: The toggle fell off the day I got it. The left control key fell off. There are times that the keyboard doesn't work i.e. the keys don't engage and type. The battery has failed even though it is rarely used. It doesn't have very good connection capabilities our old Acer at 1.3ghz is much more reliable. It freezes far more than it should. All in all - I'd avoid Lenovo like the plague. I tried contacting the company - what a waste of time.
