2 out of 5 eggs'Unauthorized battery' shipped with this IdeaPad

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: This system has plenty of power and a wonderful screen. I use it primarily for development and run several Virtual boxes at once on it and never suffer performance degradation.

Cons: Apparently, this system shipped with an 'Unauthorized battery.' Now it literally won't charge. It seems I'm out two hundred dollars for a new battery.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointing customer service response

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: n/a

Cons: I purchased this a few months ago. It arrived working fine, but after ~20hrs of use the battery stopped taking a charge. I contacted support two weeks ago and they said they would have a replacement battery out in 3 days. It still has yet to arrive. I have spent over an hour on the phone with them (primarily on hold.) A supervisor informed me today it 'should arrive tomorrow' and offered no apologies or explanation for the delay. I work in IT and go to school full time and without a functioning battery, the laptop cannot perform its intended purpose, and is useless. This low quality product has caused me a considerable loss in time and productivity. I will not buy this brand again.

3 out of 5 eggsDiscovered a nasty bug

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: This is an update to a previous review -- I can't figure out how to edit my original post on 3/15/2014.

Cons: As stated prior, I am running Windows 8.1 and Start8, mimicking the UI of Windows 7. I can't stand Windows 8. After installing a slew of MS updates about 1 month ago, the machine attempted a warm boot. After the logging in, Window's UI hung, displaying a black screen with a functional mouse pointer. After 4 hours of troubleshooting, I was forced to reimage the drive with a recent backup prior to the updates. A week later, I tried the updates again, and the exact same thing happened. I figured it must be something low-level -- either a BIOS or graphics driver issue. I went to Nvidia's website and downloaded a newer driver package. The machine hung again at the same spot upon reboot after updates. I am now in the position of owing a $1500 laptop that cannot be upgraded. I went to Lenovo's website and updated the BIOS. I have not yet tried to update the OS again, as I do not have an afternoon to devote to this nonsense. I searched the web, and haven't found any problems like mine -- the closest thing being a BIOS-related issue regarding running off of battery. Lenovo's website doesn't offer any contact options, despite this machine being under warranty. I will continue to use the laptop without further updates for the time being, and will post again if I ever figure this out. Too bad -- this is a nice machine, marred by a horrible trackpad and BIOS/driver issues. Stay tuned.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: A great desktop replacement. Runs very quietly and generates little heat. Fast machine. Not a lot of "bloatware".

Cons: Heavy for a laptop (since it's large). Documentation could be better.

Other Thoughts: Glad I bought it!

3 out of 5 eggsBattery Woes

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: Great display, great performance all around, quiet, cool ...everything one would expect from a configuration of this kind.

Cons: The Lenovo power management system is not recognizing the Lenovo battery as an authorized component and therefore (apparently) refusing to charge the battery (plugged in but not charging error following the unauthorized error). There is a recent BIOS update, but I can't load it ...because the battery is below 30%.

Other Thoughts: There is zero helpful guidance anywhere on the Internet (apparently) for this problem. I rely on this laptop daily, but now it looks like a warranty repair. :-(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop for the price

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: For the money this is about the best laptop I could find. It is fast, plenty of RAM and a solid (not great) GPU. The screen is good and the inclusion of a Blu-Ray player/burner is a nice extra.

Got rid of Win 8 and installed Linux Mint - Had to install NVidia drivers and Bumblebee for the GPU, once that was done everything worked flawlessly, battery life is solid for a laptop with these specs.

Cons: The keyboard feels a little flimsy but works fine and the touch pad feels over sensitive but neither is a deal killer.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great buy for the money, a well rounded laptop that provides excellent performance, you will be hard pushed to get better for this price. Very happy with the purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsNever Lenovo. Never Again.

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: Large screen, backlit keyboard

Cons: System failed to boot after 2 weeks, recovery partition had errors. Lenovo sent recovery disks, but 2nd disk was bad leaving me with an overpriced brick for even longer.

The Lenovo support website is a good decade behind other similar sites. Their drivers are buggy, there is no auto-diagnostic tool to determine your device and load the appropriate drivers like Dell and ASUS have, just to name a couple.

Even if the recovery disks had worked, the "English" instructions are so poorly written that they're practically nonsensical. I realize Lenovo is not a US company, but it's not that hard to hire someone who can write legible instructions.

The keyboard, while backlit, is very flimsy and the entire thing "bounces" while you type.

The battery is tiny and doesn't last anywhere close to what Lenovo claims.

Other Thoughts: I've never had so much trouble with a laptop before nor have I had such terrible experiences with a support site. The people answering the phones are pleasant enough, but they're pretty useless at helping beyond that.

I'm having to wait 3-5 business days for a second set of recovery disks all because the "recovery.ini" file on disk 2 is empty. Lenovo has no method of downloading an ISO of the disk or even sending along a good copy of said .ini file so I can just burn my own disk and hopefully climb out of this overpriced hole Lenovo has put me in.

Never Lenovo. Never Again.

5 out of 5 eggsThe BEST combo of performance and price you can find.

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: -Display is very sharp with great viewing angles
-Runs very quiet with very low heat output
-Performance with i7 processor and 16 GB RAM is very smooth and responsive
-Battery optimization software installed by Lenovo is simple and easy to use
-Graphics card is great
-Build quality is solid, feels very sturdy and well-made

Cons: -The size of the "Enter" and "Backspace" keys are a little to small as it is easy to end up hitting the keys next to then instead on occasion, but should be able to get used to them in time

Other Thoughts: Great laptop, I could not be more happy with my purchase so far. Very hard to find a 17.3 inch laptop with comparable specs at this price.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Laptop minus the Windows 8 and bloat.

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: Internal specs - Very great specs for what I felt was a very reasonable if not low price! Was surprised to see these specs for this price
Screen Size - For someone who uses this for CAD and other programs, the big screen is a huge perk
Full size keyboard - it is nice to get a keyboard with a numpad.

Cons: Bloatware - Yes this comes with lots of bloatware, but it is easy to get rid of, half an hour and you can have it all removed, all PC's that come preloaded with an OS have plenty of bloatware, just remove it and you should be fine.
Windows 8 - This is a business laptop, windows 8 is terrible for that, the metro interface is annoying and meant for tablets and touchscreen, not a normal PC. But go get your self a classic shell download or just put windows 7 on there and you should be fine.

Other Thoughts: A very solid well rounded laptop, will work fine for what I need to do with it. The only major things I have wrong with it are software that it does not need, but that is all easily fixable to someone with even the smallest amount of PC knowledge.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Desktop Replacement

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59406361) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 16 GB, DDR3L, 1600 MHz (2 x 8GB) Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: Dedicated video card, fast, quiet, stays cool, boots very quickly.

Cons: Like others have said, the keyboard feels a little "flimsy" towards the center, but the keys respond perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I have bought 3 other laptops and returned them all to find the right one, and this is it! If you are going back and forth like I was...just stop it and buy this.
