Awful experience with the customer service.


Awful experience with the customer service. purchased computer early this year... computer broke 3-4 months after the purchase. I had 2 complaints. 1 - all of a sudden, computer decided to reject my password. (Initially was set up as 0000 and never...

My main reason for the 1-star rating is that my machine was a fluke. I started with intermittently-working front USB ports, and when Lenovo's sub-contracted warranty tech attempted to fix it, the computer died completely. It's been over a week and...

Similar to the only other review, this machine flies when it comes to memory and processing power, handling many simultaneous high-intensity and resource-consuming application

Lenovo's customer support and warranty support are some of the worst I've ever experienced ; Also poor interior cavity design, with illogical component placement and poor wire routing

malware preinstalled


Lenovo has mentioned they are temporarily not installing this software into new machines, but you can be assured this particular model is loaded up, and future models will also contain this browser hijacking adware, sans-MITM certs

system is compact, quiet, very fast once an ssd is installed

comes pre-loaded with SuperFish, which is more than your normal bloatware: it hijacks search results, injects targeted advertisements into your browser, and even worse installs a 'man in the middle' certificate to allow ads to be injected onto...

No problems in setting it up - it works out of the box. Any problems I had were with the Windows OS, which I find rather irritating (I upgraded from 8.1 to 10 with the free offer). The Lenovo one-key recovery system is great.

The computer would be a bit too low powered for many people, but is fine for me. There is no opportunity for expansion. It could have done with more USB2s (2 at the front and only 2 at the back- I would have liked 4 at the back, but the single USB3 is...
