Really, just awful. Theres no silver lining on this one.

Summary: This is one of the worst electronic devices I have ever used. The mouse constantly moves around at it's own will as if stuck in the direction I was using it in. The orientation of the screen constantly changes and when corrected using control+shift+arrow will move back when clicking through programs. It freezes constantly which might be due to the fact that it has windows 8 which is another awful bit of technology all it's own.
Summary: Shipment: Delivered On July 26, 2013 Lenovo G580 15.6-Inch Laptop (Dark Brown IMR/Metal) After 2.5 months and 1.5 months past the return to Amazon time limit. I started having problems that degenerated till I no longer was able to boot. called the friendly Phillipeno?? warrentee service and after several hrs of trying this and that they said they would just send me the factory reinstal disk's.
Summary: I bought this at a big box store with high hopes. I wanted to like it but here's why I ultimately returned it. 1. Battery Life is unacceptable 3+ hours doesn't cut it today in a "tablet" 2. trackpad is awful, flickers and constantly toggles screen mode because of some mystery "gesture" i must be doing. 3. RAM is permanently installed and therefore, what you get is all you'll ever have. This is not evident anywhere before purchase and I find it misleading. 4.
Lenovo 230u has lots of problems; tech support lousy
17 August 2013
Summary: I did a lot of research, and this computer got mostly good reviews. It is very fast, and I like the keyboard and joystick-mouse. On the other hand, I have had numerous problems: 1) The battery would not fully charge. After an hour of talking with tech support, I sent it in. They did fix the battery problem, however, they wiped the hard disk, and DID NOT LOAD THE DRIVERS. They sent me a letter telling me I needed to go to certain web sites to reload the drivers.
Summary: Display has dead pixels,The monitor screen light suddenly flickered.Feels like the old.There is a display problem, other aspects also. Began to frequent crashes, but the brush system just fine. Touch the screen often inaccurate. Anyway, this display problem.
Summary: The product has been an abysmal failure. Too many glitches from the screen orientation, browser, hardware, power management (not close to the 7 hours they suggested), and so much more. This product had been discontinued by Microsoft's retail offices in Houston, which should have been a RED flag to me, but I went ahead and purchased it nonetheless. I have owned the product less than two months, and the issues I've encountered have been unbelievable.
Summary: I opened this with great excitement (I have the i5 upgraded version) only to find that the touchscreen didn't work - right out of the box! What could be MORE disappointing than buying a tablet and not being able to use the screen. The touch works in tile mode but not in desktop mode. It's been 5 days since I got it and made my first call for help from Lenovo. Expecting the worst (I've yet to find a tech company that offers consistent, good support) I got the worst.
Summary: In the description of this product, it states that the OS is "Genuine Windows® 8 Professional 64 bit". The tablet/laptop I received had Windows 8 (regular version) on it. I did not realize that the wrong OS was installed until after installing Office 2013 and other software. I asked the vendor (Tek Depot via Amazon) if they could send a code for Windows 8 Pro since that what I paid for.
Summary: The machine looks fine but the hardware is terrible... first, they took 45 days to deliver my machine. within 1 month, the trackpad and earphone jack stopped working. Lenovo promised me a 6 day turnaround to fix it. they replaced the machine in 3 weeks... ive had the new machine for 3 days and its down AGAIN.... I am in the process of trying to see what I can do and have now spent 45 mins on the phone only to be bounced around to the 'appropriate' department.
Summary: I had a whole host of issues with this product: 1. Light kept changing brightness every few seconds without my doing anything 2. Sound didn't work 3. Mouse cursor was constantly flickering 4. Touch screen didn't work 5. It would take forever for the screen orientation to change when computer was rotated 6. A program would be exited spontaneously without my doing anything. I sent my computer in for repairs after speaking with a few technical support people.
