2 out of 5 eggsA lot of work, terrible tech support

Pros: Came with windows 7, bloatware was easy to remove. Worked for web browsing, powerpoint, and word processing, which were my primary uses.

Once normal HD was replaced with SSD and 2MB ram with 4MB ram, boots up fast and runs smoothly.

Cons: Lenovo Tech support is terrible. I called about a couple keys on the keyboard not working, plus the problem other people have cited of the computer acting like the CTRL key is being held down. The woman insisted several times "sir the reason the keys are acting like this is because hackers have already taken over your computer." Even after explaining the problem over and over again, the woman insisted. I let her remote connect to the computer, upon which she insisted she "found" viruses, and could clean them up for a measly $200 a year subscription to Lenovo support. I expect a scam like this from some fly-by-night operation, not a (supposedly) reputable company like Lenovo. I hung up, and eventually fixed the problem myself.

Another time, I needed Lenovo to send me new recovery disks because mine were broken. After charging me $40, the disks arrived, I installed them, and found out they wouldn't work because they were Windows 8 instead of Windows 7, which Lenovo neglected to check. I had to call again, and after a 20 minute call, they realized they had to send me Windows 7 disks.

Computer is super slow upon unboxing. I installed a 128GB SSD and 4 MB ram, and now it boots up and runs fast and smooth.

Bought this for $300 because I was on a student budget. Bought the SSD and ram when I got a job. You get what you pay for I guess.

Other Thoughts: With a lot of tweaks and a lot of care, good computer that worked for basic tasks I needed it for.

Lenovo tech support is terrible, and computer is not great straight out of the box.

I will not buy Lenovo again.

3 out of 5 eggsKey Issues

Pros: Pros, wiping out the bloatware was trivial. A slow as hell laptop is quite nimble if you stuck an SSD in it.

Cons: Well, recently it decided that my key was not genuine any more. This, according to MS, is something to do with the contract with the manufacturer. In short, you aren't allowed to change the hardware, or the key becomes invalid. MS then told that the key had been posted on a website. I checked further and it was because people had the same issue I had. Now I need to jump through hoops to get MS to fix my key woes.

Other Thoughts: Lost 2 stars because of the key issue. ATM it's pretty useless.

4 out of 5 eggsEverything you need to know

Pros: Great LED Screen Brightness,
Built to withstand a bit of punishment,
Good keyboard (except small backspace key),
Webcam is Great,
Great computer subsystem (SATA3, DDR3 1600 etc), Runs cool,
Good Sound.

Cons: Slow harddrive,
Only 1 ram slot,
Mislabeled for windows 8,
Case edges and corners are a bit painful,
Trackpad placement/movement could be better,
worse warranty service then a thinkpad (all ideapads)

Other Thoughts: I originally got this computer for a client who's machine had died, and had very little money for a replacement. Ultimately it ran slowly, and ended up trading her a refurbished dell machine I had just fixed up, that was running perfect. In investigating the slowness, I found the cause to be bad sectors, and judging for other reviews, this may be true for others as well. So I called Lenovo, and got a replacement harddrive sent along with reinstall disks. The computer has a windows 8 pro sticker, with no windows 7 sticker. What this is supposed to mean, is the windows 8 serial is embedded in the motherboard. If it was meant for windows 7 it's supposed to have a COA sticker on the bottom with serial. Turns out the embedded key didn't work with windows 8, so I sent the whole machine in, and I assume they replaced the motherboard. Now the machine runs decently, although you can tell the ultimate limiting factor is the speed of the harddrive, even more so because of the lack of ram which necessitates accessing the harddrive more often.

If you purchase this computer, which isn't bad despite it's flaws, you should be ready and willing to upgrade the harddrive to an SSD, and the ram from 2gb to 4gb or more. Since this has only one ram slot (accessed easily from the bottom, same with HD) a ram upgrade is gonna be more costly then other machines. These two upgrades, with tax, from the web(v300 240gb ssd) costs about $170. Could be a bit more if you need the upgrade kit version of the SSD which comes with stuff to make it easy to transfer your data, which you want to do since the computer has recovery partitions and the OS which you will need.

I gave this 4 stars, because I only really consider two things to be deal breakers, in comparison to its benefits. One is the lack of a second ram slot... especially given this is sort of a low income machine, having only one slot is additionally punishing to those who have less to spend. The other is the edges and corners. If you compare this to a dell, even an older one, you can instantly feel the comfort difference that rounded soft edges provides, vs lifting your wrist up to find lines dug into your skin from using this machine. I don't blame Lenovo for the harddrive.

Couple of final thoughts;
The usb layout is such that there are not two usb slots next to each other, which effects users of external drives that require two usb to be connected.

If you care about warranty, and getting good service, you should stay away from the ideapad products, they even tried to charge me shipping to get the computer fixed, which never would happen for a thinkpad customer. Additionally you can setup trouble tickets for a thinkpad without even talking to anyone, but not so for the ideapads.

All in all, this machine isn't bad per say, just desperately needs the afore mentioned upgrades, and you may find it came with a bad harddrive to begin with.
So if you buy, just count on spending $170 extra, plus putting in a

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price, Screen size

Cons: Sloooooowwwwwww computer, case material is easily discolored by fingerprints and greese, screen came scratched.

Other Thoughts: I bought this computer as a replacement for my wife for easy computing, ie. web browsing, simple picture editing and word processing. First thing I did was purchase another 2GB memory. It was unusable without it.

The screen had a few small scratches on it, hardly noticeable but I would not be able to use it with them.
My wife on the other hand is fine with it.

I had to spend some time tweaking the trackpad from jumping all around the desktop.

Overall, I would not recommend this laptop if you're looking for something ready to go out of the box.

1 out of 5 eggsSolid basic system

Pros: I had already written a review once and gave it 4 eggs, but since have had problems.

Cons: Computer constantly acts like the control key is stuck down. Scrolling in web browsing changes the font size. When selecting icons in windows explorer it will select multiple items as if the control is stuck down, which it isn't. On reboot this problem will go away temporarily, only to return.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Newegg customer service and they referred me to contact the company I had previously bought a vacuum from on this website. I then e-mailed and asked if they had even read my e-mail I have received no response. This has been almost two weeks now.

1 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere

Pros: Windows 7, has number pad, battery life indicator is time based.

Cons: SLOW out of the box. SLOW after removing bloatware. If you let it sit and log off it takes about 10 minutes to get back to the desktop. Can barely run Firefox or Excel, but don't try both at once. Very slow to respond to keys pressed and mouse clicks. Totally USELESS machine. Would not recommend.

Other Thoughts: Do not consider.
