Summary: I have had this laptop for 6 years now and have to say that i did not think it will last so long. I had to replace battery 2 times (expected) and I upgraded it to windows 10 and it still runs pretty good. Added memory to make it 8 GB RAM.
Summary: Nice computer (now), it was very buggy at first. I ended up reformatting the HDD, effectively removing Lenovo's own software, and did a fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit. Now this computer runs flawlessly. I bought this for school, for studying and writing.
Pros: Though it was marked as "B" grade, it was in prestine condition. I had a few problems (see cons) but nothing that a little tinkering couldnt fix. Computer runs flawlessly. Screen has great resolution. Build is solid and keyboard has little give. Nice computer...
Cons: Was buggy at first. Kept having issues with the installed software. (Lenovo's own optimization software apparently wasnt playing nice with Windows 7.) Also, laptop can run 64 bit, but the version of Windows 7 installed by Lenovo was 32 bit version. Noisy DVD drive. Limited ports.
Summary: Overall a good machine and great to have Windows 7 Pro. Since it is a used machine rather than a rebuild it already has a fingerprint Id I need to get rid of. Biggest problem is that the sound doesn't work and I am a big user of Skype.
Summary: I ordered two laptops, and just to be clear: they both had 2 GB of DDR3 RAM. I also added RAM to bring both laptops up to 4GB. Also these laptops do not have internal webcam or microphone.
Pros: A very decent platform for it's price range. Does general computing very well (MS Office, web, some streaming.)
Cons: Batteries on both laptops I received were in pretty bad shape operationally. Neither can hold a charge and get very hot, leading me to believe they may be on a recall list already. I have yet to check the serial / part numbers.
