4 out of 5 eggsLenovo

Pros: Slim, light ultrabook with good specs and battery life

Cons: I bought this laptop because my previous lenovo broke within a year (warranty)... though I did not use Lenovo's warranty as it didn't cover my issue. The LCD screen started changing colors to green. When I first sent it in, they diagnosed that the bezel is bent in and LCD hinge cover is missing. I did not find anything about bezel wrong but when I got the laptop the hinge cover was really missing, though when I gave them the laptop IT WAS NOT MISSING. so after a suggestion they would fix it for 140 bucks I decided to use a secondary insurance I bought through Newegg, and they gave me money back and I bought another laptop for that.


To summarize this, I didn't like support given to me, though they were available and fast.

3 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: Price: $399 for a 2.1mhz quad core
Touch screen
Hard drive capacity

Cons: This laptop's wireless NIC is having ongoing problems with randomly dropping connections. It does not like to connect to N protocol routers and there are numerous posts on Lenovo stating this. As of this writing there has been no movement on the part of Lenovo to find a solution to this problem. Since this was bought for a present to the wife( IT noob) for her upcoming travel event, I will need to return it for a more reliable wireless connection before her trip.

Other Thoughts: It saddens me to see the Lenovo name tarnished by such a poor product. I own a G575 and a Y560 with no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsDefected

Pros: Unsure as of yet.

Cons: When I received it was caved in on the bottom where one side of the battery slides into it. No visible shipping damage on the box and seemed to be very secure in the packaging. Unfortunately now I have to pay an addition $20 to send it back and have the extra inconvenience of this incident.

Other Thoughts: Didn't even turn it on. Will change review when I receive one that isn't defected.

3 out of 5 eggsGood hardware for the price

Pros: Very good touch screen Win8 Laptop for the price. I paid 375.00 w no tax and no shipping. The A6-5200 is equal to an Core i3 processor.

Cons: No really a con since the price is 375.00 but, here are the issues.

1. You can hear the fan even when the PC is idle

2. Laptop is not very fast - 5400 RPM HD single slot for RAM.

3. Difficult to open bottom cover without breaking the retain tabs in the front of the laptop. Make sure you google for the service manual before opening.

4. I was unable to locate a MSATA SSD slot on the motherboard. This slot would of allowed me to install a MSSD for Windows and programs while leaving in the 500 HD for storage.

5. No way of creating recovery disk for for a new HD install. Lenovo support wanted $ 59.99 to mail me a set of recovery disks. I am going to use parted magic and a bootable USB stick to run clonezilla for HD migration.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 8GB of RAM and Samsung SSD to upgrade performance. I can see HD and RAM usage is a bit high in performance monitor.

I will update when upgrade is done this week. Upgrade parts came to 240.00. So let see if we can get good performance for 615.00 in total.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Good keyboard. 4G Memory is enough.

Cons: The GPU degree is a little high. Get about higher than 60 for daily work using.

Other Thoughts: One more slot for Memory extend is needed.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Totes Magotes Amazeballs

Pros: 14" touchscreen, the best keyboard I've used in quite some time, Looks really nice. Nice power button, and white LEDs. Not too much third party installed software. Has removable battery (although extended batteries are not available as of this writing), Bottom cover is removable to access entire motherboard. RAM and hard drive can easily be upgraded, Windows 8 is actually fun with a touch screen

Cons: The nice silver paint on the lid scratches very easily. I keep this laptop in an official Lenovo Ideapad carrying case, and somehow it still managed to get a few scratches within a week. Its really a bummer, because the scratches reveal black plastic underneath. Within six months the thing is probably going to look hideous. There is only one memory slot. The battery is small, but shows you how far laptops have come in the past ten years with regard to battery life. The CPU is just ok, despite it being a true quad core. A dual core modern entry Intel Pentium will beat it, and modern Intel Core i3, i5, etc with hyperthreading will murder it. The CPU fan seems to stay on, even when the system is completely cool.

Other Thoughts: For the sale price, this is a wonderful machine. Its sleek, and quality built compared to other machines in its class. The Accutype keyboard is wonderful, and the touch screen is very responsive for navigating throughout Windows 8.

I've had a number of Windows 8 laptops in the past year. This is my first touchscreen one. Before this laptop, I never used the Modern UI because it was difficult to navigate using a trackpad. I instead used the Desktop UI for everything.

Now, I hate using the desktop because it seems so antique. Its really fun to navigate using the touch screen and Internet Explorer. I haven't used Internet Explorer since 2003, but until Chrome or Firefox are Modern UI apps that support gestures like IE, I'll continue to use Internet Explorer.

To make up for the quality of the machine, Lenovo chose to use AMD APU in this machine. While I used AMD processors from 1997-2007, I switched over to Intel when their processors started murdering AMDs performance wise.

This is a quad core, running at 2.0 ghz. I am not impressed. The benchmarks are low, but I know you can't always go by benchmarks. When you compare this laptop to a 10.1 inch laptop with a Celeron 847 CPU (that's dual core, 1.1ghz) and there is little difference in boot time, responsiveness, etc, then you know that you are going to have problems.

It's really embarrassing when your laptop from 2010 that was around the same price is faster.

I thought perhaps it was because of the battery / power settings. I changed it to the performance setting and there really wasn't a noticeable change.

I can't comment on the graphics, which appear to be the saving grace of the processor. I don't have time to get into computer games. From what I did play (solitaire) there were some small hiccups with cards being dealt.

There is one memory slot. You can upgrade it to 8gb, which I did. It helped with multitasking a bit.

When I received the machine, I was a bit unhappy with how long it took to install Windows 8.1. The upgrade went smoothly, and I am happy.

I'm not used to hearing the CPU fan, but the fan in this machine seems to run a bit loud at times, despite the unit being cool. There is a neat setting in the Lenovo utilities to turn the fan on at different speeds to expel dust from the machine. That's pretty neat. The battery is smalI (Around 2200 mah). Don't expect much from it if you're used to larger batteries and Intel CPUs. Web browsing, I get around three, maybe four hours with the backlit dimmed.

I program on the go, spending 50+ hours a week. I like this machine for its 14' display, slim design, and keyboard. Because of the nature of my work, laptops don't last long for me. I know this machine isn't going to be durable, but I'm okay with that. The 'APU' may stink compared to Intel's CPUs, but it will suit most peoples' needs. The touchscreen is a nice feature that actually made me excited about the machine.

Its worth it

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I Needed

Pros: If you want something cheap and surprisingly capable, yet still very portable, and light look no further.
And theirs even a touchscreen!
This laptop manages to keep pace with my kids casual online/offline games and habits.
As well as my own productivity, and online habits.
It does all of this with a surprising efficiency for its price.

Cons: The laptop has a bit of flex if mishandled.
The design while light sacrificed the battery for weight it will only last 3-4 hours, with good use.
I've noticed the fan while silent can make it's presence known in a rather quite room/environment. The fan profile is to aggressive I've observed no heat coming from this thing, yet the fan at 50%+ load makes a ramp to a noticeable sound. Again in a rather quite room otherwise it can drown out it's own "noise".

Other Thoughts: Those of you no convinced, well I believe it helps with windows 8 greatly in it's rather awkward navigation. The touchscreen performs rather well, it only really seems to misbehave because of the software.

5 out of 5 eggsSplendid little machin.

Pros: Great mid range laptop at a really good price, one of the lowest priced touchscreen models available. Hard drive and RAM(to 8 MB) upgradeable.

Cons: Lenovo's slim design makes this laptop difficult to service for beginners. You have to remove 13 screws(including 4 under the battery slot) on the bottom of the machine to access the hard drive and the memory but once you do its easy to pop them in and out.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Windows 8.1 machine(as I'm a Linux person and wouldn't upgrade past Windows 7 on my sole windows machine for the longest stretch) and its a learning curve to navigate the start menu(though you can change the start menu from tile back to the traditional Windows start menu). This laptop uses 4 year old technology but that's what you can expect for getting a laptop for under $400.
