4 out of 5 eggsQuality Laptop

Pros: - I enjoy the keyboard, it is very comfortable and allows for fast typing.
- runs a wide variety of games, graphics-heavy games you'll be around medium, but most games you'll be maxed out.
- It's a work horse. Productivity, is not an issue with this machine.
- Haven't noticed any major problems with the computer as of yet that can be related to the computer.
- Nice big screen, great display

Cons: Nit-picky design issues:
- microphone by left hand.
- power cord and headphone jack on the same side as usb where mouse cord would usually go. Makes a cord-heavy mouse side.
- It's a big computer. The display is wonderful for gaming and movies but portability is a bit of a challenge because it'll take up your typical tiny two person table at your local coffee shop.
- has edges (hard to describe them) where little bits of dust or debris can get locked in, can be kinda annoying for the neat freaks.

Other Thoughts: I tried to give as many little cons for those looking for reasons not to buy. Overall I enjoy this laptop greatly. It was a great investment. If you are used to smaller laptops be wary that the extra screen space may not be worth it if you are someone who's constantly on the go.

1 out of 5 eggsNot as hoped

Pros: Large extremely clear screen with great graphics

Cons: Overly sensitive pad that 3 adults including an engineer cannot adjust to prevent from jumping to various apps.
Too many moments where the screen changes to unexpected apps and frustrates the users while trying to work

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful with minor flaws.

Pros: It's got a huge screen, and incredible cpu with gpu combo. The laptop feels sturdy and not cheap. It's not incredibly lightweight but it isn't super heavy.

The image on the screen is bright & vivid.

Windows 8 ain't that bad once you get the hang of it.

This is great for multimedia such as gaming, HD video editing and what not.

And it doesn't really get that hot.

Cons: Glossy screen can attract glare depending on the environment.

Battery life is abysmal with an average of 4 hrs usage. I came from using a 13 inch Macbook Pro which could stay charged for days and be used for an entire day on a full charge.

Other Thoughts: Altogether it's a great product. I'm very happy with it. It just takes some getting used to Windows 8. I didn't find any problems with the bloatware on this device. It isn't a horrible amount and it hasn't hindered my experience.

Except for McAfee. I removed that and got ZoneAlarm and MalwareBytes.

5 out of 5 eggsLearntocomputer

Pros: Does everything I need.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: Plenty of SSD drives come with ghosting software. Disk imaging software can also be bought cheaply. I imaged my 5400 hdd to an 128gb SSD with no issues. I did have to organize the partitions better, whoever thinks I need 5 partitions needs a new job. I kept the restore partition for now but I still have the original hdd as a backup.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent laptop

Pros: Packed with hardware you wouldn't expect to find in a laptop in the $600 range. i7 CPU, 6 gigs ram, dedicated 635m.

The chiclet keyboard feels nice, with the added bonus of having to worry less about my cat running across it and ripping the individual keys out.

Plays World of Warcraft on high settings around 40 fps in congested areas. It handles Skyrim very well, and a bunch of older games not worth mentioning.

Windows 8 screams, it performs very well. I don't miss the start menu, and like a few of the apps.

Cons: Keyboard is set fairly high, which can be uncomfortable on the wrists as they lay across the laptop.

The touchpad is huge (some may think this is a pro), but it is common while typing that you rub your palms across it. It is simple enough to fix, press FN + F6 to disable the touchpad. For people who prefer mice to touchpads, this should not be an issue.

Microphone is just to the left where you rest your left wrist. The microphone itself works great, but I see this being an issue in the future as it is likely to get clogged.

Other Thoughts: I haven't noticed the flimsy display as others. It stays in place while typing I haven't taking it out on bumpy roads and don't plan to, so it does well.

Windows 8 is going to come with every laptop now, it is easy enough to figure out, learn a few keyboard shortcuts and you won't even miss the start menu.

At this price range, you are not going to have the best gaming experience. It will be good, but not comparable with higher end machines. With that said, I am very impressed with the performance of the laptop playing Skyrim, and World of Warcraft.

I tried to focus on the cons, with this review. Really this laptop is fantastic, for the price. Thus it gets 5 stars, I don't expect perfection in a $670 laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Big, Light, Fast, play lots of LoL maxed settings and very stable, Skyrim modded works great too. Never gets too warm even after hours of consistent play, you never hear the fan.

Lenovo keyboards are nice, very well done.

Been able to do a good amount of multi-tasking with no drops in performance. Skype chats + LoL + Internet Pages all running at same time, no problem, no drops in performance.

Cons: Microphone placement by where left hand would be for a gamer. (Not really that big of issue since I usually wear a headset)

Though the computer design is nice and light, at times it may feel a little too light and flimsy. But not too big of deal.

Few issues with the wifi not re-enabling once you bring the computer out of airplane mode. Once you figure out how to deal with it, it's a 5 second fix, but still a little annoying at times.

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 takes some getting used to, but once you learn it and make it fit your needs, it is actually quite convenient at times.

Windows 8 is definitely better for either a touchscreen or a track pad.

(note: one of the gestures that occurs a lot in Windows 8 on it's own if you don't know it. Sliding your finger horizontally from left to right switches what app you have open. Once you learn it, you accidentally do this a lot less.)

All in all fantastic computer, pros definitely outweigh the cons here.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Please So Far

Pros: Dedicated Graphics! I couldn't find a pc with a reasonable dedicated graphic card for under $800.00 so finding this one with a 2GB dedicated graphic card, a quad i7 for 659.00 (i see it's more now) I was very happy. I was terrified of Win 8 but received it, went to the desk top first, installed Retroui to put my start button on as I want to try it and start 8 (both offer a free trial) and cost $5.00 if you like it after trial.
Now once that was there, I just installed all my programs. Macromedia Fireworks 2004 (old program, no problem). Office XP, installed and activated with phone call, no issues. Everquest (old game) installed worked, no issues. Diablo III new game, installed no issues. Photoshop CS6 no issues, ran. Dreamweaver ran from my portable drive with no dll installs on the main pc, awesome, no issues, hp printer... had to install from the HP site their disc didn't recognize the OS, no issues with the download and install from there. My list goes on, old and new programs, updated the wireless driver at the suggestion from someone elses feedback.. never lost connection all day. Checked 4 USB ports all working. Uninstalled McAfee... Win 9 has Microsoft Security Essentials built in and updates with Windows Defender and it is my preferred anti virus and spyware tool for little bloat and it's always worked for me when others failed so I don't need another one. Uninstalled Nitropro 7 and installed the free Nitro pdf Reader, awesome, beats adobe pdf reader, have been using it some time now. Over all with all of this I have not hit any issues really with the pc or with Win 8. AFter completing all updates tonight I am running a back up to my external drive, that takes 45GB but will be my restore in future. All good. I was so scared of going to win 8 and looked hard for a win 7 pc. My son said I'd have no issues (he's an it guy though) and in the end he could say I told you. I had no issues so far. Everything worked, all programs ran, all installed even my oldest.

Cons: To pin many of my programs to the task bar I had to go to Windows Explorer (now called File Explorer) and right click the exe in the file to find the pin to task bar instead of pin to start menu. That's my biggest win 8 con so far, .

I really don't like the number pad on the keyboard. It's smaller then the one on my laptop i'm replacing which is a 15.6" laptop so I wish they had mad that larger. Otherwise it seems to work fine and the letters are okay to use, but some buttons are small, i wish it was larger.

I tried out the mic with skype which I use pretty regular. My other laptop has a very clear microphone that is better then my headphone mic, this one really isn't nice, sounds tinny and is in an awkward spot so I will have to use my headphone and mic for calls.

Other Thoughts: I am ecstatic that I didn't have the issues I dreaded with win 8 and to this point have no issues at all. So I would suggest you install an inexpensive program ($5.00) that allows you to use the best of win 8 and your familiar win7 start up, Start8, RetroUI, both seem nice. There's free ones too but the small purchase price gives a little more versatility on set up when you know more and want it later.

5 out of 5 eggsA good buy

4 out of 5 eggsLenova Ideapad G780 17"

Pros: Great crisp clear display, lightweight, good battery life, USB 3.0 ports, i-7 CPU, 2GB-Video RAM dedicated Nvidia

Cons: Very flimsy cover (display), flexes far too much. No external eSATA port. HDD is only SATA2, NOT SATA3 high speed data transfer speed. VERY odd to use todays high tech of a CPU (i7/Ivy Bridge), but then throttle it back with old tech SATA2 HDD speed.

No locking cover latch.

Comes pre-loaded with Win 8 basic, and I for one HATE that goofy tiled home screen! In under 2 hours usage I'd installed "Classic Shell" to revert from the useless Win 8 interface, BACK to the useful Win 7 w/Start button!!!

Other Thoughts: Being one of IBM's economy line laptops, it's fairly well equipped. Nice 2GB Nvidia dedicated GPU-RAM

No locking cover latch.
