Waste of Money


If this is how the computers are being built by Lenovo, then I will highly discourage people/friends from purchasing them. A year of use and having it turn into an awkward useless paperweight is not my idea of a good product.

Good price, dedicated gfx card

I purchased this laptop in July of 2012. I saw the reviews and thought this would be a good choice since I really did not want anything too expensive and flashy. I loved the fact that it had its own dedicate gfx for gaming, which I do 3-4 hours per...

I'm disappointed, I have tried everything. I even disabled the integrated and tried to force it to run the dedicated. ----- Other then that, there was some bloat ware. (most of lenovo background PROGRAMS that nearly impossible to stop)

Great speakers, nice build, amazing keyboard

Dedicated GPU almost always doesn't work. No matter the game, (saints row, minecraft) it doesn't run. Giving me a complete awful experience. The only time it will run is in UDK. I bought this laptop for the GPU - which doesn't work. And the CPU isn't...

good pc


Pretty smooth, i bought this just for gaming, runs games pretty well. Warcraft-med settings:30-40FPS, SWTOR-med settings:50-60 fps, guild wars 2 med settings:25-30fps. Nice keyboard, handles the bashing quite well. Overall this was a great buy, no...

Slow hard drive, bloatware, headphone/mic inputs on the right side to close to a USB port

Nice Laptop


My old desktop broke and I needed a new computer for school. I decided to just go with a laptop for convenience and am very satisfied with what I got.

Fast, reliable, and cheap

lenovo Z575 (129922U)

A travesty of Customer Service


I've been on hold with this company for over an hour now in an attempt to return this unit. Don't waste your time.

Apparently great features for the cost

The most terrible customer service experience I have ever had. I purchased a refurb from the Lenovo outlet. I suggest nobody else ever do this ever. The first unit had intense graphical and heat issues and I sent it in, on my own dime, for repair....

Nice light gaming machine


Wish its at least 1600 x 900 resolution but its a sub $400 laptop so you get what you paid for. -I personally don't like the number pad but others might find it useful

System is nice and responsive ; Not a lot of bloatware ; Nice graphics core ; Can run Diablo 3 with low settings with no issues ; Can run most games in low setting with no issues ; Screen is better than I thought ; The construction is decent though the...

Only ship with one ddr3 1333 memory. To get the optimum performance, you need dual memory channel. Its a simple as adding another chip. I upgraded it to dual channel 8gb ddr3 1600 memory

No Crossfire


This laptop is very well built and looks nice in a subtle way. It can play skyrim on high which is pretty good for a $430 laptop. It's also very quiet and doesn't run hot even while gaming

I got this laptop primarily because i thought it could do crossfire with the built in APU and another integrated card. SOme reviews here and on other sites made it sound like it had two cards. After trying about 10 different versions of catalyst...
