Solid machine but finicky graphics card

Summary: I have been pleased with this laptop. It stays relatively cool when in use and lasts quite a while on the battery supplied (I get about 4+ hours when word processing and browsing the web). I have a slightly different model. I have an E420 1141-A51. This machine is not for gaming. I have had problems with the video card drivers. Games and some video processes have caused the system to freeze or blue screen.
Great machine but the screen WAS too poor for me so I replaced it!!

Summary: It's a sad mistake on the part of Lenovo to make this wonderful fast laptop with a dim screen. It's not a terrible screen,.. It's clear and whatever.. But sitting next to my other laptops it looks blurry and dark. UPDATE!!! I was able to purchase the Glossy replacement screen for this Laptop on Amazon for a great low price and it was easy to change out.. What a miracle!! The Matte screen that came with it was too dark and was actually really "terrible".
A nice up-to-date replacement to IBM's old T43 ThinkPad...

Summary: Great little laptop that does most things well. It's not going to be a good gaming laptop due to the relatively underpowered integrated Intel 3D graphics, somewhat slow HDD, and small screen, but for general web surfing, streaming video playback, "light" gaming (i.e. Flash games), non-intensive photo editing ( Photoshop Elements ), and drawing in Inkscape (if you can stand the small screen), it's more than adequate.
