Solid Overall Machine


As with any PC, you spend the first 30 minutes uninstalling the garbage such as trial AV etc, cant complain about a little uninstall time to let these vendors pass savings on to us

Chose this because it came preinstalled with Windows 7 Pro and i didnt have to mess with downgrade rights. Second requirement was dual monitor capability with a solid CPU and adequate HDD space, a wonderful business PC

Biggest thing that annoyed me, was the fact that it talks about Dual Displays (but these are my first slim Lenovos so i just didnt know) utilizing Display Port but no adapter or converter which would've been useful for so many of the "legacy" displays...

Good Machine but incorrect recovery disks.

nice machine

bad recovery

Fanatastic machine!


I have just purchased 60 of these PCs and cannot say enough great things about them. They are fast, economical and very functional. Users are very impressed with the small form factor and the speed. Added bonus, they are now assembled in the USA!

Good Machine for basic use


We bought two of these to add to our existing network, and they work near perfectly for the task. My only issue with them is they come preloaded with Office 2010, so those of you looking to try office 2013 will have to go through the process of...

Review of M82


I have had the M82 for three months now and have had good luck with it. Pros: Runs quiet and seams to have enough power for my current needs. Cons: Fan started to run full speed one day and would not stop. I opened the case and did not see any...
