Summary: I've owned many computers in the past 25 years, but this was by far the most unreliable and problematic. It finally stopped working altogether after 7 months of very light use in my part time office. During it's brief lifetime it was constantly plagued by intermittent failures of the USB ports. I would not recommend this product.
Summary: The seller of the laptop was good. Rating is based on the laptop itself and Lenovo technical support. The first one I received was faulty--the WiFi did not work. Took it to the tech people at work who confirmed the WiFi was faulty. To be sure, they got it online using a dongle and updated all drivers and other software--there was a lot to update. Then contacted Lenovo support.
Summary: I read many reviews before purchasing this laptop, as my Toshiba's DVD player stopped working and the speakers did not work when on line after not even three years. It has excellent speakers and performs very well. I have had it now for three months and am hoping it lasts for a good long while.
All three USB ports on the left side stopped working less than one month after I received!

Summary: I am trying to get some help with this now. I bought this computer for work and need to use those hubs for headphone and foot pedal. One month of use is all I got out of them! I searched and searched Lenovo's support site and can find no solution. UPDATE: Amazon came through and in less than one day!
Summary: For what I need to use this laptop for, it is a good computer. However, if I try to use it without it being plugged-in, it doesn't stay charged for very long, maybe a few hours if I'm lucky. So I leave it plugged in.
Summary: Piece of junk. I wanted to return it the day I got, but I did not want to pay for shipping + $75 restocking fee. My system is already slow, the battery stops charging all of a sudden, the video and audio are sub-par. And its only 2 months old! I'm waiting till I can save up enough money to buy a Macbook.
Summary: I use this to run my small business and it is definitely getting the job done. I ordered mine with Windows 8 Professional, MS Office Professional, Quickbooks and Norton Anti-Virus pre-installed for under $1,200. It would have been the same price, if not more expensive, to get an Apple with nothing pre-installed. I also have an Adobe Creative Suite on this computer and everything is still running well, even though the software takes up a lot of space.
