Overall, a great laptop for the price


I haven't had the laptop for too long yet (3 days so far), but so far, I like it. I've had my old laptop for ~4 years now, and it still runs great, but its slowing down now. This one is pretty fast even though it has a terabyte of storage.Pros: 1. LOTS...

Super fast, very responsive, full of neat bells and whistles

Hinge broke after 7 months


This worked OK for seven months. Then I went to close it one day, and the hinge wen't "crunch!" Now I can't even close it. Since it's still under warranty, I contacted Lenovo. They said a broken hinge is "accidental damage" and REFUSED to cover it...

Worked fine for the first 7 months

Flimsy hinge

Decent computer for higher end graphic programs


I bought this computer for my graphic design school work. With the good graphics card it runs all my Adobe programs needed for school. I wish it had a internal disk reader. I think having to connect an external one takes away from the portability.This...
