passable table, great price


Prices of tablets are falling dramatically. You can get a much better tablet than this for about $100 these days. At less than $50 AR this becomes a cheap alternative that you aren't afraid to take with you or leave in the glove box. It has a lot of...

Bought this for a great after rebate price. Lenovo is a well known brand. Lots of features for the money

weak specs - 512mb ram, single core processor. Screen has very poor viewing angles

These came with 4.0.4 after refurbished


The screens is clear but you have to rotate it a little to get a nice lid surface in portrait mode.

Not GB but came with ICS 4.0.4 just like the Best Buy versions after they are refurbished by Lenovo. Liked it a lot after a few hours of usage. It is faster than my Archos G9 with a dual core chip with the same 512 MB ram

Screen angle in portrait mode

This tablet is Awesome!


Other than the battery came at 0% (not removable what can you expect), I can't find one thing wrong with it. I loaded 30 apps from play without a hitch. Hasn't froze once. I played with it all day Saturday and not a hiccup! Decent case on Fleabay for...

Super low price ; ICS OS unlike the title which states Gingerbread

Hard to hold 1 handed and I've got XL hands

DOA Wouldnt Power Up


Disappointing to receive product DOA and only would receive a store credit. This will make me think twice about purchasing from Newegg in the future. I went to the Lenovo website and it didnt have any information on this product.


The unit wouldnt power up, gave an illegal battery error. I contacted New Egg and they would only provide a store credit for a return

Lenovo Ideapad A1


Just like an android smart phone with a bigger screen. All of the draw backs and all of the advantages (except making calls). If I can figure out how to tether, I may come back and give 5 stars.

Nice screen, fast

a little to eager to send you to the next screen; a little too difficult to get back to the last screen. Poor sound quality (but, what can you expect. I haven't yet triid it with headphones)

A purchase that I now regret


At least I can load videos onto the sdcard and give it to entertain my young kids.

came to me almost like new, takes sdcard

painfully sluggish. shutoff by itself, very very very very long boot up time

Its waste of Money


I am trying to return this item. But, NewEgg not accepting returns on this item. And I paid $127, Now the price is $99. I felt bad that Its not worth at all.

Less price. Other other reason to buy

Its totally waste of money. You can get some good Tablet PC outside, which are better touch response and fast ; Lots of drawbacks ; 1) Slow in response ; 2) Charging drys too fast ; 3) Touch is not that smooth, Just OK ; 4) Resolution is low

Have returned two defective units and will just keep the replacement again to make sure I don't buy another Lenovo product- Would be embarrassed to give to some one else as it would not last long before the tablet has one of it's numerous problems.

Light, looks good, price was great. Sounded like a bargain

Second replacement: Has so many issues too numerous to mention. These are just inferior tablets that you would not expect from Leveno. Cheap and unreliable product-You get what you pay for! Bought a Nexus/Asus 7 now

Really good for the price.


bought this for my girls for Christmas and have spent the last week or so installing and testing software that I thought they would like. So fare it has exceeded my expectations.

Excellent picture quality, quick enough to run all the software I installed on it

It has a few black pixels on the screen that I keep trying to wipe off
