Good value laptop. 12/07/2013
I bought this laptop for my girlfriend and for her its really perfect. It has an ultra low voltage processor so it runs very cool yet is still a dual core i3 with hyperthreading so its pretty fast. Will not get hot even when left on a blanket for a long time. Considerably quicker than her old laptop with an AMD chip. The battery life is great even while watching Netflix with a bunch of other tabs open. The screen is nice and clear and works great as a touchscreen windows 8 device. I'm used to my 1080p screen and I cant tell the difference. HD 4000 suits her needs as the only gaming she does is The Sims and maybe some Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.
For her this laptop is perfect but I'm used to my desktop with a GTX760 =). Had a problem with the wireless internet cutting in and out until I updated drivers and turned off the wifi power saving mode. The Lenovo website wasn't much help, I just downloaded a free driver update utility. Came with some bloatware but that's expected for laptops. Space bar doesn't always work unless you hit it in the middle, otherwise I like the setup of the keyboard. I also can't stand Windows 8 but it works for my girlfriend as she has a Windows 8 phone.
It has some minor flaws but no deal breakers. Definitely not made to play games but can probably run Skyrim at low. Got it on cyber Monday for $399 with a $25 rebate which is an amazing price. Thanks Newegg!!
