5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works great, I have had no major issues so far.

Cons: Only Minor issue is the bios tries to boot from the attached usb drive by default. Messed with my mind when I got the OS not found error.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Performance, Quality, & Price

Pros: I absolutely love this machine! It has performed flawlessly with no issues whatsoever. It is very FAST and has great graphics performance for my needs. It runs VERY cool (approximately 85 degrees F at fan exhaust port) even at the high speed clock setting (it has 3 selectable speeds). Input power consumption is less than 56 Watts measured by my UPS. So its 280 Watt power supply has plenty of reserve capacity for the expansion slots. Heat being the enemy of reliability, I expect this machine to perform reliably for a long time. I like that it comes with almost no bloatware. The two internal cooling fans are quiet.

Cons: The following are very minor issues: It comes with a USM Standard Portable HDD slot in front. That drive interface standard was announced more than a year ago, but I have not found any one selling this type drive. The two front USB 3.0 ports are on top of the cabinet, mounted at a 45 degree angle, making it awkward to plug/unplug USB connectors.

Other Thoughts: I definitely recommend this machine to any one wanting a higher end performance desktop PC that is likely perform reliably for a long time.

5 out of 5 eggsUbuntu Linux Rocks! on the IdeaCentre

Pros: So bought a machine 8 or so years ago. Still running today, still runs all the latest applications, because it doesn't integrate the bloatware with the desktop. I run Eclipse, Apache, do all kinds of compiling on it, runs great.

Yesterday, I go to re-boot, and it doesn't come up. Some kind of hardware issue, as I don't even get a BIOS screen.

Being in the middle of a project I don't have time to piece swap to see what the piece is that went bad, power supply, maybe, mother board, maybe, anyway, it would have been a dust bunny swap fest to get the machine up and running again.

I pull the hard drive out of the old machine, plug it into the new machine (This particular Lenovo w/ this exact configuration, with totally new different hardware, and it comes up without a tweak. Video card is cool (I did go from Nvidia to Nvidia but different models), Audio works, Graphics great, Speed awesome, again, I JUST PLUGGED IT IN AND IT WORKED.

Windoze that was installed dual boot on the same hard drive didn't fare quite as well :p

Anyway, go *nix. Oh the distro was Ubuntu BTW. Getcha Some!!

Also LOVE the tool-less design, adding the new hard drive was very easy.

Cons: Really not sure what the turbo switch thing is all about. If I was running off of battery it might be cool, but put it in Turbo and leave it. I never did understand the reason for those on a desktop.

Also The power supply is an issue. It hasn't burned out on me, but In adding the new hard drive there wasn't a power connector for the SATA drive, just the old school 4 pin and the cable was not long enough to reach. I can get a cheap extension, but if you are going to say it's expandable you need the space to do it AND the power connectors.

Other Thoughts: CB:" I've heard too much positive about Windows 7 to think it's the OS.", ho ho, hee hee

When will people learn.

I work in a mostly Windoze shop, just trying to get converts. One of my engineers who uses Windows told me how "easy" it was and that it did the job for him. He upgraded from 4gb to 8gb, and couldn't figure out why it didn't see all his memory. Turns out he had to purchase the "Professional" version so he could access all the memory, then format and re-install, re-install all his apps. After hundreds of dollars spent and days of time lost, he is "easily" up and running again. :)

1 out of 5 eggsLacking

Pros: Intel Core I5, 12GB DDR3, 2TB Hard drive & Nvidia GeForce GT 620 1GB all good. Haven't upgraded to Windows 8, but Windows 7 has always been a good OS for me.

Cons: 280 power supply!? Misprint right!?

Other Thoughts: The 280 Power Supply will burn out shortly; should be 500-700W min.
If that power supply isn't a misprint, considering the other review I'd think long & hard before buying this as someone didn't know what they where doing when they designed this. Looks good on paper, but if it don't run, consider Neweggs return policy....

2 out of 5 eggsOnly if you have time to spare

Pros: Nice looking case. Very quiet operation in all three "speeds". Nicest feeling, cheap keyboard - I could grow to like it. Chances are it's also a fast machine.

Cons: After RECOVERING the system 3 times, once with tech support's instructions and the 3rd time with them on the phone, they are sending a tech to examine the beast.
I've heard too much positive about Windows 7 to think it's the OS. This is a Chinese made machine, even though Lenovo said it was U.S. and it seems to feature cheap components set up incorrectly and offered to consumers.

Other Thoughts: Spending 6 to 8 hours attempting to work through Windows error messages is not my idea of fun...not with a brand new machine. And then having to start all over because Lenovo support had no other ideas, well that's demoralizing.
There was no sign of damage to the machine and a quick look inside revealed all components connected and seated, so I have to think this is simply cheap hardware poorly configured.
