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.
Summary: I am so glad to have found a Win 7 laptop. There was absolutely no bloatware (other than Lenovo products.) It was basically plug n' play. Wakes up fast. It has a 10 key number pad that was a bonus as I've come to not expect this feature on laptops. I bought this less than a month ago. The only issue I had was the display brightness level went down to zero when plugged in. Nothing seemed to fix it so I re-booted and the problem went away and hasn't happened again.
Summary: It is a very practical and reasonably priced laptop. More memory needs to be added, but the screen is fine. The big plus is the Trackpoint that allows precise cursor navigation and undisturbed typing when You turn the touchpad off, even on buses and in other tight spaces. A must for people that do not want to carry a mouse around.
Summary: This is a nice laptop with irritating windows 7 or 8 and irritating lenovo software. Don't bother with the finger-print reader as it can be hard to turn off. Otherwise a good machine for the price.
Summary: Used the Win 7 default version as was for a friend who has ME and was unsure of going from XP to Win 8 in one hit. She has made the transfer well, is pleased to still have the cd/dvd drive and generally pleased with the display. She remarked on the improvement of display and weight over her Dell of 2005. The Win 8 discs supplied await her readiness. Did experience difficulty in making a recovery disk - but that was the only blip.
Summary: Nice clear screen. pleased with it , though the fingerprint recognition does not always work........I have to scan it several times occasionally, other times it works just fine. I wish I could find out how to disable this bit . I use a wireless mouse now, as I dont quite like the touch of the finger plate on the keyboard.
Summary: Overall a good purchase. This is my first Lenovo, but decided to try this brand after having mixed experiences with laptops. Previous laptops have been let down by durability issues (mainly hinges) so we will see how the Lenovo fares over time. I chose a Lenovo because they were IBM and have done alot of R&D into hinge design so I am hoping this laptop will last at least 3 or 4 years, and hopefully more if I look after it.
Excerpt: Ноутбук подойдет для работы с документами и для серфинга в интернете, хоть процессор и "древний", его хватит. оперативки 4Гб и жесткий 500Гб, экран с антибликовым покрытием, влагозащищенная клавиатура, приличное время работы от батарей.
