4 out of 5 eggsGood psecs-Works Good/ Cheap Construction

Pros: - 720p webcam is a nice feature on this laptop
- a6 processor on this laptop is a quad core, so its a bang for the buck with a quad and a integrated gpu 8400 I believe which should be enough to witch HD videos and do some minor video work with no lag. Over all it booted well and worked fine.

Cons: - They build this thing real cheap . Flimsy keyboard and very "plasticy"*.

- Slow hard drive. Boot times and transfer rates take long. Installations take (too much) time. How do u put some decent processing power and cope it with such a slow HDD.

Other Thoughts: As soon as you buy this, replace the HDDD with a SDD. Samsung Evo's at 250gb are now running under 150$. Thats the best thing to do with this laptop.

Hopefully after this year we will see the end of the HDD (unless its an external 4tb) in laptops. The world must switch to SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent laptop for the price

Pros: Excellent keyboard, fast processor for light gaming, decent build quality, good sound. Very quiet - the fan only runs during heavy cpu or graphically intense operations.

Cons: Screen quality is not so great with poor viewing angles

Other Thoughts: For the price point, this is a great laptop. The keyboard is great and I like the touchpad. The A6-5200 is plenty fast and good for light gaming. I replaced the hard drive with an SSD and it is much faster, quieter, and a bit lighter.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat lap top for the price

Pros: Price, full smooth keyboard with 10 key, optical drive, fast-ish quad-core,

Cons: Windows 8, one stick of memory so not running in dual channel mode,

Other Thoughts: Over all I think that this is a great lap for the price. I am a web developer and needed something to code on the go on for cheap so I picked 2 of these up for my partner and I.

I use photo shop and dream weaver a lot and usually have both open at the same time along with firefox with 5+ tabs. The laptop did every thing I needed but got a little bogged down as tabs increased. I upgraded the memory by adding a stick of 4gb and this thing runs flawless. The upgrade was simple, only 2 screws needed to be taken out to get to the memory.

It has an optical multi drive which is good. I have seen few laptops at this price point with an optical drive at all let alone a DVD-R/RW. Could ask for a blu-ray dive but not at this price range.

Touch pad is not not most responsive. At times it wont read my input and I'll have to remove my finger and put it back on again for it to read my touch.

The "R" key on one of the 2 laptops don't always work when you hit it. You have to hit it just right. Not hard or anything just press it all the way down.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for linux

Pros: worked great for me, needed to scan for viruses from linux prior to reusing/reformatting usb sticks that go into potentially compromised systems.

Cons: backup tool requires a 16gb or larger usb drive to retain windows backup in case of resale without linux installed.

Other Thoughts: when backing up windows i expected typical make a series of dvds instead it created a 512 mb partition that does not reformat to factory. same tool was able to copy the boot partition to a 16 gb usb drive, but lacking any clean/backedup 16 gbs i used a 32 gb that had my music on it. i also had to google to get it to boot the linux install media but that was just due to unfamiliarity with the situation in newer laptops to get boot media to load.

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD

Pros: Looks fancy

Cons: DOA.. Turned on to a white screen. Removed battery, swapped ram, etc and still went to white screen. Brand new out of the box it was bad. Had to return it for a refund and went back to ASUS instead.

Other Thoughts: Just spend more and get a better brand name..

5 out of 5 eggsGood laptop

Pros: No problems just yet- nothing to complain about.
No problems with wifi at all. It's fast, cool, lite- battery life is pretty good. Great display image. hdmi and usb3 ports!

Cons: speakers are worthless- Windows 8 sucks.

Other Thoughts: For my purposes i find no need to upgrade the memory- or anything.. but it's great to hear that you get much improved performance for just a few dollars more...

1 out of 5 eggsWifi and Windows 8 don't get along

Pros: Good value for the specs. Works great if you blow Windows 8 off and use Linux. Windows 8.1 took 4 hours to download and install and did not help.

Cons: Internet connection drops every ~10 min or so when using it. The wifi symbol says connected but the web browser can't load anything. Turning wifi on and back off, or putting in airplane mode and then back to reset the wifi would work for 10 min.

Other Thoughts: For kicks I tried running Linux Mint 16 and the problem disappeared. I updated the wifi driver and there was no difference.

Newegg sent me a replacement and the new one does the same thing. Something about this model is a lemon.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly What I Need

Pros: A lot of laptop for the least amount of money.

Cons: Ships with Windows 8. Would have been better if it shipped with no OS than with this junk.

Other Thoughts: I have a spare SSD and Windows 7 lying around. I will take Windows 8 off, and put on Windows 7.

Cheap laptop + SSD + Windows 7 = Awesome

WINDOWS 8 is by far WORST OPERATING SYSTEM EVER CREATED BY MAN!!!!! Why did you give this to me, Lenovo? Whyyyyy?!?!?
