5 out of 5 eggsExcellent small business laptop

Pros: I have ~25 of these units in service now and have never had issues beyond PEBKAC errors with them. Once you clean all the bloatware off, they are fast enough for everyday office use.

It comes with Win 7 Pro pre installed, but also has licensing and an install disk for Win 8 Pro. This means any immediate OS upgrades are already purchased for the machine.

Most of the units I have in service are used for day-to-day document preparation. There is a lot of time spent in MS Office. I do have one that is used in a development environment and will probably up the amount of RAM so it can support emulators and IDEs better. Speaking of which, it can be upgraded to 16GB of RAM (2 - 8GB ddr3).

As for hardware, it is not a gaming computer nor is it capable of warping time to know what you want to do before you do. It is just a computer. With that said, most of the parts that can be upgraded are accessible behind one removable panel. I am unsure if the processor is accessible without complete disassembly as I have not upgraded that particular part. But if you want to go SSD and more RAM, it is quick and easy.

Overall assessment. Great value for what you get from a trusted name in business related hardware. I will likely continue to order this model until it is no longer available.

Cons: From my experience, it does not support XP mode out of the box. You must first hunt down an update so you can get virtual machines to run on it. If your business requires the use of old-outdated software (government agency software), then this is a minor set back as you have to hunt down and install this update first. The hotfix to resolve this issue is Microsoft KB2519949.

As with any new computer, there is a lot of bloatware. Simple to uninstall though.

It only supports, out of the box, one external monitor. You can achieve 3+ displays however by purchasing USB external video cards such as the EVGA 100_U3_UV39_KR UV Plus+ 39 (Newegg Item # N82E16815101012). You will need one of these for each monitor past the first one.

Other Thoughts: I do not personally use one of these daily but I do manage a network with ~25 units of this model on it. It is quick and easy to get this from out of the box and onto an employee's desk.

I can not speak to the track pad experience of other users as all of these units have replaced desktop units and have external KVM hooked up; all my users have additional external equipment. I have not received any complaints concerning the track pad however.

5 out of 5 eggsLenovo Edge E545

Pros: Does every thing I need it to do. Solid construction, all the parts work very well. Absolutely no issues with this machine.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A nightmare to upgrade to windows 8 and then to Windows 8.1. Luckily I cloned the OS to separate SSD's so I can always go back if I want, but Windows 8.1 seems to be fairly similar to Windows 7 once you get rid of the bloat ware.

1 out of 5 eggsBe FOREWARNED !

Pros: There would be plenty of pros, I'm sure; If one could use the machine.

Great machine if you are from Outer Bhumpheuk; live in or near a cave, and you can spend endless hours drooling over High Technology from other side of world.

Cons: You cannot use it: The 'Think' is that I think that the touch pad is absolutely fiendish!

If you are accustomed to a mouse and touch-typing it will take you about twelve seconds after you've popped the hood before you want to throw it across the room in frustration.

Other Thoughts: I cannot Think just now: I have just spent a half hour on this thingk, only to find out that I have to use it as a wall decoration.

Well 2 days later got new battery same problem! Had to send laptop back took 5 days it's working right now but I can't recommend this to anyone based on my experience.

5 out of 5 eggsI like this machine

Pros: -Solid Lenovo quality
-Nice size
-Decent Processor
-Good Battery
-Bright Screen
-Upgradable to Windows 8.1 PRO
-Hardware can be upgraded
-Super Easy access to Hardware and cooling system

Cons: I am annoyed by the lack of a HDD activity light.

Other Thoughts: I have upgraded this laptop a bit since getting it. I put in another 4gb DDR3 1600 CAS11. This made a huge difference. I also replaced the APU with a A10-5750m. Next I will replaced the HDD with a SDD.

I bought this for school, I have a video arts class that needs something with so power.

4 out of 5 eggsThe lady likes...

Pros: Customer loved the configuration and the price. She felt that it was professional and handled well.

Cons: Trackpad was less than impressive. It takes some serious time to use effectively (if not frustration free). Cost it an egg, but a small gripe nonetheless.

Other Thoughts: Good deal all around.

4 out of 5 eggsOkay laptop

Pros: The hardware is solid no problems. It is a good machine

Cons: This install of Windows 7 is not right. I'm locked out of several files I should not be and the folder structure is named differently, not what they should be on Win 7. Debating if I should reload the OS.

Other Thoughts: I've had to pull the battery twice when it locks up after waking up from sleep mode. All the problem are with software I think.

DO NOT upgrade to Windows 8 on this computer!!!
