1 out of 5 eggsTerrible product quality

Pros: Worked great and fast up until it stopped working for no reason.

Cons: After only 5 months, the laptop turned into a $500 brick suddenly. Turned it off, and then wouldn't boot back into the desktop the next day. Blue screen of death and then refused to turn on at all. Lenovo, despite their "award winning" warranty, wouldn't cover the repair and then tried to upsell me into a subscription warranty service when they refused to fix it. They even charge for the phone call, which was not made clear until after I called them. Also, be aware that they charge $70 for any recovery discs or services, which they require you go through convoluted phone menus to get to (no online options exist). They then try to upsell you even more ($20/month technical services). I'm not impressed with Lenovo after this. They don't include software discs with the laptop and their hardware warranty is apparently really limited. Newegg customer service passed me off onto them, saying they couldn't do anything (after a sloppy and grammar error ridden quick message - they even managed to spell my name wrong). I'm just lucky that I backed up my most important files, since it's just a dead piece of hardware now, and even if I did manage to scavenge and put it back together (or pay ridiculous amounts to get it repaired) it's all gone.

I've purchased 3 laptops with Newegg over the years, and this will be the last one for sure.

Other Thoughts: I am immensely disappointed in both Newegg and Lenovo. I was a huge fan of both before this experience, and I will warn people off both from now on.

1 out of 5 eggsPlease invest in something else!!!

Pros: No Pros

Cons: It is the worst laptop I have ever used. First of all I hate windows 8 and then on top of it's battery life is nothing may 2 hours maximum and the touch pad ughhhhh.. there is no precision. The mouse will suddenly go at the top of your browser as soon as you will try to click anywhere on the page. I wish I had never invested $500 in this piece of ____. Battery will be gone without enough warning and all your unsaved data will be gone. You can't share anything when on Skype without signing in through their stupid system. Plain and simple - it is very annoying.

Other Thoughts: Trust me don't go with only the affordability, this isn't good at all.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's decent, not bad at all.

Pros: Even with the bloatware and the higher memory usage the computer still ran and multi - tasked. So far the processor has been fine but I guess we'll see.

Cons: Had a slap load of bloatware, the memory tax was a little higher.

1 out of 5 eggsKEEP THE BOX!

Pros: None

Cons: The computer started displaying issues with the hard drive less than 3 weeks after I got it. Newegg would not return it because I didn't have the original box (although I did have all of the paperwork). It was still under warranty so Lenovo fixed it, but I had to ship it to Texas and it was gone for just over 2 weeks. I was shocked that a brand new computer would need repairs in less than 3 weeks! Ironically, I live in the town next to a Newegg warehouse, so I wish they could have helped me. Newegg said Lenovo needed the box in order for them (Newegg) to eventually return it to Lenovo. However, Lenovo insists this is Newegg's policy and they should have helped me better. I'm not pleased with either Lenovo or Newegg and won't be purchasing fronm either again. A computer that either had issues so soon or potentially came damaged is not ok, and I should have received better customer support.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth the headaches

Pros: a lot of nice features

Cons: Did not live up to expectations - I bought this for my son for school and had nothing but problems with it from day 1...
Called Lenovo Tech support and they were at a loss for why it wasn't loading and freezing constantly. They advised me to format and reload - it ran a little better but never like it should have. Lenovo agreed to provide a full refund after i let there tech guy access it remotely and trouble shoot. He was baffled as to why it wasn't performing. I have since returned it and bought a Dell - what a difference!! I think it may have been the A8 processor that was the problem, the Dell has an I5 processor and it blows the doors off the Lenovo. I would not recommend this computer unless you have a lot of time to waste on the phone with Tech support!

3 out of 5 eggsGood For The Price

Pros: Quick boot, very quiet, decent speed, good graphics and an average battery life (3 hours on battery save, 2 hours on balanced).

I use this for entertainment and some work, mostly on the web, and it handles my needs pretty well. Could certainly be better.

I don't use this to game so have no idea how it handles them.

Cons: I'm not impressed with the A-8. I would say I'm disappointed. It seems to struggle with multi-tasking, especially with relatively to high resource programs. It's slower than the i3, that's for sure. And no option int he BIOS to overclock. In fact, the BIOS is pretty bare.

Speaker placement is dumb - on the bottom of the laptop. Appears to be plenty of room on the sides of the keyboard but maybe it's not enough. Anyway, the sound is compromised because it's usually muted by whatever you have the laptop on.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Still, at this price, it's your best bet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop

Pros: Quick, fast, keys nice feeling, loads fast.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: I researched YouTube videos on how to remove pre-installed apps, programs ,not needed files, how to load laptop faster. The results are awesome.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: good overall laptop your getting what you pay for lenovo is above good quality product.

Cons: touchpad could be better

windows 8 is HORRIBLE 2 stars out just for making me screw with the bios and format to w7 seriously laptop companies need to tell microsoft to fix windows 8 or they wont use it, how hard is it to just come with w7? no one likes w8, all that bloatware makes the laptop super slow right out of the box too.

all lenovo laptops should atleast come with a windows 7 format guide for those who dont know how.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter six years, great choice for an upgrade!

Pros: Since I haven't upgraded laptops for 6 years (I chose to rebuild two years back, which took more money than I paid for this laptop, so bad decision there), this sleek, slim, and lightweight laptop is a surprisingly wonderful upgrade for the price. For a similar laptop from either Dell or HP, I would have paid twice the price AT LEAST. The NVIDIA integrated graphics card is more than enough to handle the older games I play on my laptop since I play the larger ones on my tower.

The transition between Windows 8's panel mode and traditional mode is seamless and quick, allowing you to quickly get to what you want while still allowing you to use your computer in a familiar way.

The addition of a number pad on the keyboard is a little confusing, as the spacing I'm used to for the arrow keys and a much smaller enter button is different, but it's great since the music scoring software I use greatly depends on number pad use for speed, and having a USB number pad was both bulky and frustrating. It'll just take getting used to!

The laptop is incredibly quiet and runs very cool, a great change from my old Inspiron's fan whirring to life every 10 minutes.

The laptop includes both VGA AND HDMI ports. Since I teach and most Smartboard/Promethean products still use VGA cables, this means I won't have to buy an adapter.

The webcam, light, and microphone are great, according to my Skype buddies.

The computer charges VERY fast. I'll still have to play around with the energy use settings to find the best setting for battery life, but it seems to last around 3-4 hours with streaming a video.

Cons: The speakers, although good, are on the bottom side of the laptop. This is disappointing, especially if you're consistently putting your laptop in your lap, which muffles the sound dramatically. When you have it on a flat surface, the sound and projection is great, however. For the placement, the laptop loses an egg from me--as a musician and an audiophile, good speakers are important. They are good speakers, but the placement ruins it. There are so many other places, like alongside or above the keyboard. Since I haven't opened the laptop up (and probably won't), I don't know if there is internal space for the speakers elsewhere, though, so where they are might have been the only solution.

There is no Windows code sticker, documentation, or installation disc included with the laptop.

Other Thoughts: Fresh out of the box, the laptop was almost completely ready to use for me with the exception of a few programs needing to be installed. Set up was fast and easy and, contrary to popular belief, it's not that hard to get used to Windows 8 since it allows traditional Windows 7 mode and the switch between modes is incredibly quick. This review may be updated depending on if things change over the first few weeks of use.
