A good value, speedy, well equipped. I have been pleased with performance.

501wally, Ebay
6 August 2014
  • Summary: This is my first Lenovo. I have been very pleased with the performance and speed. It came well equipped and have had no problem running some specialty programs I use in my work. An overall a good value. I do wish they it had an indent on the lid or something to make it easier to open.

After 3 months of usage I'm very glad. I don't upgrade to Win8 yet

Esteban Mauricio Padilla Orjuela, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: After 3 months of usage I'm very glad. I don't upgrade to Win8 yet, but in Win7 works perfectly. PROS The battery is around 3h30. Startup around 20-30 seg, The keyboard is comfortable to the touch. Good HDD space. Quick access keys. It's silent. CONS You need surely a 4GB RAM more. The keys marks-up on the screen. BT Soft isn't better. It's so good for daily work. The mine is turned-on 16/24 hours every day.

Unauthorized network card

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: After owning this laptop for less than one year, I started getting a message (1802) stating that I had an unauthorized network card that needed to be removed. I never changed the wireless card so I don't know why this would be happening all of a sudden. Everything I am reading online is saying that I must not have a Lenovo approved wireless card and that the bios was hacked to get around the whitelist.... But I thought I bought this laptop new and not refurbished...

GREAT computer - LOUSY mouse/click pad

PlanktonEater, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: It's just one piece - no separate buttons for left and right click. So, it's just one large piece of plastic that often needs to be pressed twice and is VERY noisy. The noise factor is maddening. Mouse buttons should be silent.

Powerful but not sturdy

Mike, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: This is a powerful system I added an extra 4 GB, though I doubt I'll push this that hard. As with all new computers I had to add Office which I got through work for 8 dollars (2010 professional) :). The drawback is it is cheaply constructed it has a lightweight flimsy plastic feel to it, which explains why it is so much less expensive than the other ThinkPads, But you get what you pay for and since my laptop just stays at home traveling between rooms, it will work fine.

Think Pad: think twice !!

jonathan d, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: TOUCH PAD IS TOO LARGE PHYSICALLY causing unintended cursor travel when the hand's palm (fleshy metacarpal thumb joint) just brushes the pad. Right and Left click buttons are incorporated in the touch pad, have too great a distance to travel to affect a selection. Packaged memory at 4Gb is not enough to swiftly handle operations. I had to upgrade to 8Gb by adding 4Gb ($50) to the available open slot.

Okay for the price

J. B. Miller, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I know a ThinkPad for this price is a good deal no matter what, but I want to point out two disappointing things I've noticed so far. It's not as fast as I expected. I haven't even installed much software yet, but it still lags at times. But for the price, I can't complain. I can complain, though, that there's no microphone in jack, only the built-in mic. I discovered this when about to do a job interview via skype.

Great laptop for a wonderful price!

Deidre Lin, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to review this after I had used it for awhile. I used to have an old Think-Pad back in the 90's and I loved it and needed a new laptop so I thought I'd try one of the newer versions. So very easy to migrate my data over to this machine, in fact it was the easiest migration I've had! Love Love Love the feature to open a calculator at the push of a button, such a timesaver!

Buyers Remorse

Bovilexia, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I have two major problems with with this laptop. The biggest problem is there is a lot of noise (intermittent clicking) from the hard drive. After doing some research, it appears to be caused by the head excessively parking. I haven't found a solution to fix this. The second problem is the flipped Ctrl and FN keys. It's very hard to get used to the ctrl key not being in the bottom left of the keyboard.
