Summary: I bought one of these laptops as refurbished from Lenovo outlet because it was a very good deal: quad-core core i7, three USB 3.0 ports and a msata slot for a msata SSD at good price. With hyperthreading and quad-core its CPU gives eight logical processors, which is very convenient for demanding multitasking purposes. One problem I find with this laptop is that the laptop freezes if the laptop went to sleep with a DVD disc in the DVD drive.
Summary: The laptop came with features as described, including with Windows 7 installed, but also with the disks for Windows 8 for future installation if I should want it, a definite extra value for the price of $589.99.
Summary: I ordered this laptop (Edge E530 62724GU) from Amazon, specifically with Windows 7. I think Windows 8 is usable, but better suited to machines with touchscreen hardware. When I got the package, I thought that the computer was not new. I was wrong - it was new; it had been opened to remove the original Windows 8 Pro and install Windows 7 Professional. I bought this computer for my wife.
Summary: I was very impressed with the purchase of this Think Pad. First Lenovo purchase here. The build quality was far superior to the HP laptops I am accustomed to. The keyboard is a dream to use, especially the 10 key. The track pad is also great, unlike the finicky one on my last HP. My only gripes are that the screen doesn't have quite the brightness / crispness that the HP screens have.
Summary: A reliable notebook, easy to set up. I bought it, because I was looking for an English based setup, with English keyboard. Lenovo business sites are popping up regularly, when you use an internet browser. I will have to look for a way to switch this off. I think I will buy again a Lenovo product.
Summary: I recently purchased Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530c 3366 - 15.6" - Core i3 2328M - Windows... , with 2GB ram and i added 4 GB extra , now it's 6GB RAM , excellent speed, i am very happy with this product , so far i did nt face any issues.
Summary: This is a solid laptop, with a good processor for the money. The screen is nice, and it is good size (15.6 inch) without being too heavy. Its a lot lighter than my old laptop which is a similar size. A few niggly things: 1) Keyboard layout is awful. They have copied the Chromebook style of having quick buttons instead of function keys at the top. Worse, they CTRL and FN keys are the wrong way around, and PgUp and PgDn buttons are also in a weird place.
