5 out of 5 eggsSolid laptop - nice win 7 pro

Pros: win 7 pro - if you want to avoid the NIGHTMARE of win 8

Business class computer.

Separate key pad for numbers. (nice if you do a lot of number entry)

Cons: New type of power block. Have to use Lenovo power cord.

Fan sometimes comes on for no reason. Can be a little loud.

Other Thoughts: some people struggle with this mouse pad. It's easy if you read HOW to use it. two fingers is right click, you can pinch, as well as scroll. It's difficult but once you read how to use it is easy.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage. Look for something else

Pros: Keyboard has a number pad. Windows 7, Battery life, so far.

Cons: Slow,painfully slow. Loaded with Lenovo bloatware apps that slow down the laptop even more. When all Lenovo apps are removed machine still runs slow, but at least it is somewhat usable. I haven't had to wait for what I type to show on the screen since Windows 95. If you need to go budget I would go with something different. I have worked with Celerons that run better then this laptop does. Very poor performance considering the chip is a Core i3. I knew when purchasing that this was a budget laptop but the performance if far below what you wold expect from the specs. This is the first Lenovo that I purchased since IBM sold the brand and it will be the last. I don't typically write review but this laptop drove me to it.

Very disappointing. Would leave 0 Eggs if I could.

Other Thoughts: I don't like the trackpad. there are no mouse buttons on it you can tap or depress the pad for a left click, and a right click is depressing the bottom right of the trackpad. I am so used to taping to click that I frequently double click because I tap the pad too hard. There is also no context menu key next to the space bar which would make the awkward right click a little more manageable. Scrolling by swiping the edge of the trackpad is frequently very slow to respond or lags like typing. Fn key is very porly placed as well if you are used to using CTL+Shortcut key you will frequently depress the fn key instead of the ctrl key that has been a standard on keyboards.

5 out of 5 eggsNice machine

Pros: This is a nice budget machine with Windows 7 Professional. It handles an office workload just fine. I put another 2GB stick of RAM in it and haven't noticed any performance issues or poor workmanship.

Cons: It comes with a Windows 8 Pro installation disk, but when you turn the laptop on, you'll find that it's been downgraded to Windows 7 Professional.

Other Thoughts: The touchpad is different from the E530. When you press down to click, it moves the whole pad down. It determines right/left click by the position of your finger on the touchpad. The movement is actually kind of nice. It feels similar to those older mechanical keyboards and gives a satisfying click.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a fan

Pros: Newegg has the lowest price on this laptop, trust me - I checked everywhere since this was a school required computer.

Cons: When you open the laptop the screen does not feel stable enough to me. It wobbles back and forth under its own weight, and simply seems flimsy. The bottom of the laptop involves several plastic components that fit together, and after two weeks of use they have begun to pop out of place upon regular use. It is easy to pop them back in, but shows more flimsy workmanship. The biggest con is that it is SLOW. Even after adding 8gb more memory, its SLOW. It freezes up quite often, the features of pinch to zoom and four finger flick on the touchpad are difficult to calibrate and use effectively. If I had a choice, I would not be keeping this computer (school dictates otherwise).

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this computer, unless you aren't able to find anything better in this price range and price is your main constraint.
