Solid Laptop

 

Laptop is solid - crisp keyboard, all necessary connections, and good screen detail. Does not have indicator lights showing when hard drive, wireless, etc. is active which took a little getting used to. Overall, great machine for the price.

Works well

 

My husband has long coveted my Thinkpad-- he loves the Trackpoint, so when I saw this very affordable laptop, it was perfect for him. His demands are not great so this machine is perfect for him.

Nothing but bad luck

 

Keyboard would not work correctly, sticky keys. Software load was very old and needed lots of updates. Then software fail and would not sign on the the internet at all. Lonovo is happy to help you, but I did want a working laptop!
