Video Cable broke just out of warranty!
22 January 2015
Summary: I cannot give it a higher review because one month out of warranty and the video cable broke so the screen is just black. They refuse to replace it so I am now out over $100 to replace it because this is not a standard video cable and very hard to find! Not happy with Lenovo right now.
A good value, speedy, well equipped. I have been pleased with performance.

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

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.
Summary: Pros: Well built inexpensive laptop. FANTASTIC keyboard, metal hinges. Has enough ports, hardware specs to satisfy business types or multi media users. Capable of light gaming....Remains cool and fans not noisy. Easy to upgrade yourself (adding ram, SSD drive, etc) Cons: TN panel......
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.
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.
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) :).
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.
