Very good notebook for the price


This unit performs much better then expected. Purchased in August 2014 for a college bound student and so far he's had no problems and meets all his needs. Curious about the only other review posted on this product on June 18, 2014. Was it misplaced...

Great with a few minor caveats


I wouldn't let the cons necessarily stop you from buying the laptop as I think it performs well and was a very good value. It's just that some of the design issues I see are very "what were they thinking" to me.

Relatively lightweight, fast, beautiful screen, good price for features. So far I'm pretty happy with it

Several design issues: speakers are on BOTTOM of the laptop so sound is always muted, inexplicably the function keys primary functions are not F1, F2, etc. You have to hold down a separate function key and then press F1, F2, etc. Primary functions...

Affordable, Capable, Versatile, and Upgradable!


I'm very happy with my purchase. When I bought it I was in a budget and couldn't afford anything above $500. Fortunately, this computer works up to par (in most tasks) with the 09' Macbook Pro I was sharing with my wife. I plan on upgrading to an SSD...

It’s a nice looking laptop. The body feels well-crafted and sturdy. The Dolby speakers are way above average for a laptop of this price range. To be honest, it has the best sound of any laptop I’ve ever used. It’s a touchscreen, this feature is handier...

4GB of RAM is not enough for this laptop. If you’re using a software like Adobe Premier Elements it will get stuck making just a minute long video. So even for lite video editing you’re going to need a RAM upgrade. The laptop also seems to randomly...

So far so good!


JR service was PERFECT, the laptop is super fast and easy to set up. It is SO much faster than the HP I had for the previous 3 years. Also this Lenovo was not cluttered with a lot of the "store" or manufacturer specific software that bogs down a...

ABOUT ME: I am now a freshman in college and I needed to look for a laptop before school started. My budget was no more than 450. I was looking for a portable laptop. So I wanted a light weight slim looking laptop. I like how macs look but they are too...

Returned it!


Seems really cheaply made. Cd drive would only open occasionally. Kept knocking me off internet. Bought an Acer and have had no problems staying on internet. Screen display is below average at best. Glad I returned this laptop!

Very pleased!


This Lenovo was ready to go out of the box; I used my "old" Microsoft account to set up Windows (a new "feature" of Windows 8) but apparently my Microsoft account is corrupted because it immediately affected the new laptop. I simply refreshed the...
