1 out of 5 eggsBad Lenovo Service

Pros: Solid build, looks good, nice specs

Cons: The machine does not come with the Windows 8 product key that is associated with the license already paid for in the price. The Lenovo Customer Service kept insisting on selling me a new one instead of providing the key the was already paid for.

Other Thoughts: The Machine comes with UEFI secure boot which can be a pain if you wana upgrade the hard drive. To reach the hard drive and ram you have to pretty much unassemble the whole laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I was looking for

Pros: This is a great computer for the price and I am happy with it so far. At work I'll often have four or five programs running while also streaming music and at home I'll watch streaming video or play some games that are moderately graphics intensive. The laptop will get warm but never hot with this type of use and when the fan starts it is very quiet.
I haven't tested how long the battery will last on a charge, but I can use it at least five hours if I'm not playing video.

Cons: The speakers are on the bottom of the computer, which seems like the worst possible place. If it's on my lap, any sounds are muffled by my legs, but when it's on a hard surface, it actually sounds decent (for laptop speakers).

When I move from one wireless internet connection to another (home to work for example), it doesn't always pick up the new connection. I have to open the networks list and tell it to connect to the new network, even though the "connect automatically" box is already checked.

Other Thoughts: It's color is "chocolate," but it is so dark that it is almost black.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The first thing you notice is how solidly built the laptop is. It also has a beautiful screen.

Cons: I was unaware that it would contain UEFI instead of a traditional BIOS so I had to boot into Windows and disable secure boot and enable legacy mode to get my Linux partition loaded. There is no way to select which device to boot from anymore which is really annoying especially if you need recovery.

Other Thoughts: UEFI is a huge pain but otherwise it's a good machine
