5 out of 5 eggsGood General Use

Pros: Bought it for family friends and it worked great out of the box.

Good for Light gaming and general browsing

Excellent deal for the price.

Cons: Can't play Crysis?

Other Thoughts: I'm a greater fan of desktops. But as older folks like the advantage of being able to use these in bed without needing to have a guru handy they have found this unit very effective with no slowness to complain about. This will not play every latest game on max settings, but it will definitely get you by. Solid product.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great overall product.Works perfectly for what its intended for.Super fast when you swap the stock hdd with a ssd.Nice display,fast gpu for a laptop.Plays most modern games on high or ultra high.For the price it cant be beat.

Cons: Not realy a con,But it needed a extra 4gb memory stick and a ssd to meet my needs.

Other Thoughts: Was a good buy.I realy can't find a con other than stock speed on memory and hdd.More than enough cpu power to have 30+ explorers open and 5 games, skyrim,just cause 2,everquest 2,dungeon siege 3 and saints row the third.All with 30+ explorer windows open and no lag on anything.thats with the upgraded memory and ssd though.

3 out of 5 eggsHappy then disappointed

Pros: Great graphics, handles anything I throw at it. I bought this for mobile gaming and its fantastic.

Cons: Touch pad has these little bumps and they get annoying after long periods of usage. The touch pad also has one big button instead of two. When typing, I often find myself touching the pad which gets annoying quick.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great buy for the price if you do not get annoyed easily by the cons I mentioned above.

I immediately installed Windows 7 Ultimate right out of the box.

*Side note* I bought this for 499.99 and 16 days later it went to 429.99 Newegg does not have price guarantee so I was a bit upset.

3 out of 5 eggsSlower then expected

Pros: Nice computer. great screen, not to much junk installed on it.

Cons: Seems surprisingly slow. I have bought other computers in this price range. and this is the slowest one I have gotten yet. Little disappointed. Kept locking up first couple of days. Had to shut it down after being locked up like 5 times in first 2 days. Problems connecting to the internet when my other three computers never have any issues. Ok for the money but woud not buy this product again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Price and a video card that can play current games. Its also very light. The screen while bright isnt the best but its good. No dead pixels I could spot right away. Wifi works very nicely and battery life is good 3 to 4 hours depends.

Cons: The mouse buttons are very stiff really need to press down hard to get it to register.

Other Thoughts: I think for the price I paid for this $ 500 it was a solid deal while it lasted. However they appear to be out now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value!

Pros: -Great feature set in this price point
-AMD Quad Core (1.5Ghz, jumps to 2.4Ghz)
-Quiet operation and LOW cpu temps
-LED screen
-Better graphics than same price point competitor brands (think HP ProBooks)
-Windows 7 64 bit (so you can handle more than 3GB memory)
-Slick metal design
-Easy/light to carry
-90° power connection on the left side of the computer. Any other configuration I've used in the past have always had drawbacks in different scenarios, but I think this design will really help fit well in tighter spaces and more comfortably when you're laying down or have it propped on the floor or what have you. This design puts very little stress on the jack itself, so this design probably wont see many jack repair service calls!
-Not too much bloatware in comparison to other competitors
-Onetouch recovery button (basically a Windows Preboot Environment assigned to a hardware button)
-4.5hr battery life is not bad for a 6 cell battery

Cons: -Low resolution display (would have preferred a true 1080p screen)
-Only 10/100 LAN! 10/100/1000 should be standard nowadays!

Other Thoughts: Buy this laptop and slap (~$20) 4GB more of DDR3 SODIMM memory to bring the performance up to what it should be (for the more intensive user).

-4GB doesnt seem to be enough for this laptop to handle the kind of heavy browsing I do (50+ Google Chrome tabs open) especially since the APU (video) uses about 512MB of shared memory. Upgrading the RAM to 8GB really helps the computer feel faster and more responsive, makes it feel more capable of handling my huge workspace (lots of programs open on a 24" monitor), and makes it transition from in-game screens to the Windows desktop smoothly without major loading times or bogging down the computer.
-It has a 5400 RPM HDD, which is meh. Not really a definitive con, as it performs nicely for a laptop, however I would have liked 7200RPM or better, or an extra slot for an SSD. However, factor in price point and you can't really expect the extra fancy features on a laptop like this.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A8 is pretty powerful
Comes with 1 Stick of RAM (makes upgrading easy)
RAM is 1333 MHz
IGP is pretty powerful
Cost to performance ratio

Essentially, what you have here is a mid-range machine for a low-end cost. I've heard people complain that the A8 never turbos and it never will, on battery. You can control it in Catalyst to make it always run 100% (making it a constant 2.3 GHz Quad-Core).

It is made this way to deal with the two biggest issues with mobile devices, heat and power consumption. In this way it is actually a very efficient machine.

The GPU is also about mid-range for a laptop and it's very RAM hungry. Give it a lot of FAST RAM and it'll do well. You will be able to game on this laptop, but not everything will be able to run at high settings. Luckily, the resolution of the display is low, since the card is mostly bandwidth limited, performance would fall sharply at high resolution.

Cons: 5400 RPM HDD
Only 1 stick of 4 GB
No USB 3.0
No 1080p

Well the cons aren't really cons in that I don't expect this stuff from a computer in this class. Two sticks of high speed memory would have helped since Dual Channel improves bandwidth. Even so, the upgrade path is easy thanks to their choice. I'd LIKE a 7200 RPM HDD, but I wouldn't expect one, especially not in a computer at this price. No USB 3.0 isn't a huge deal for me since my external is eSATA (though it'd be nice to have now that it is being seen more often). Resolution is also not a huge deal since higher resolution would show the limitations of the GPU.

Other Thoughts: I think this will be a great machine for Sony Vegas Pro and therefore I am buying it. It'll take a few weeks to get the money, but I'll let everyone know how things turn out. Such a low cost machine with support for OpenCL to GPU accelerate my video editing sounds wonderful. I will be buying the extra 4 GB of RAM with it since I don't want to be RAM limited and I could use the extra bandwidth.

5 out of 5 eggsyep

Pros: great all around, not a windows fan and havent tried to install linux yet but so far this 500 dollar lappy is great, havent dont any serious gaming "thats what my ps3 is for" but loaded up dc universe "runs better on this lappy then it does the ps3 by the way", and world of tanks, both run smooth even in busy zones, windows is a joke but nothing everyone has gotten mostly used to over the many years its been crammed down our throuts.

Cons: some reveiwer on another site said it was kinda purple, well that person is kinda blind because its purplee, no kinda about it,, not enough to drop an egg over just a cosmetic flaw... metal finish is great but that purple does suck, gun metal grey/blak would have been much better

Other Thoughts: glad i chose this machine for my mobile pc playground, now if i can set it down long enough to build the new desktop thats sitting in boxes by the door :)

4 out of 5 eggsFast hardware but mediocre aesthetics

Pros: Affordable (especially for a quad-core laptop), Capable graphics (I'm running Skyrim and Just Cause 2 on medium graphics with good fps), Upgradeable (I have put another 4gb of memory in the open slot and replaced 5400 hard drive with 7200), stock hardware comes in at 5.9 in Windows Experience Index, fairly cool operating temperature especially considering the graphics output (that's why I got the on CPU chip), fantastic keyboard as one would expect from Lenovo and this one has the Ctrl button on far left like it should be instead of function key, extremely bright and sharp screen, colors are good for a pc laptop but of course nothing compared to a MacBook Pro

Cons: Aside from the keyboard, I am not particularly a fan of the aesthetics of this laptop. I am much more a fan of the ThinkPads than I am of these IdeaPads. For one, you must consider that it comes with a glossy screen. Only the ThinkPads have matte screens. I can get over this since I use it in a fairly dark room all day. The things that truly bother me are the touchpad, the lights, and the side port designs. The touchpad surface is a bit rough, but the real problem is the button. It's one big button instead of two, which I don't like, but the worst part is that you have to push so hard to click anything. It really feels like a lot of effort. I have been trying to use a mouse, and then it doesn't matter, but I really miss my ThinkPad touchpad. I operate in a dark room, so I don't like the above-keyboard indicator lights for the power and volume etc. That's not a huge deal cuz I'm getting used to it and ignore them.

Other Thoughts: But the side ports are kind of stupid, at least compared to the ThinkPad. The main problem with the side ports is that headphone and mic jacks are on the right (where it more easily interferes with your mouse hand) and the power jack is on the left (personal preference I don't like). But the connector design of the actual power cord end makes it likely to swivel the cord right in front of the exhaust fan. It also keeps the cord too close to your body and gets caught on things. I miss the ThinkPad power connector that sticks straight out for a short distance, keeping it away from you. And it's dumb that the cord sits there getting heated all day by your computer fan. Overall, this is a great price for good hardware in a laptop, and I am very pleased. I like the option to go with an AMD chip with APU instead of Intel Intel Intel all the time, since they have lowsy integrated graphics. (Intel HD 3000 is okay but this is better)
