Pros: ∙ Fast for moderate users who don't game.
∙ Touchscreen - definitely more then just a gimmick. While I was setting up this laptop I started to use the touchscreen pretty heavily, it was quite nice.
∙ Battery life is great for me so far.
∙ Sturdy casing - which I needed for my dad.
∙ The keys are nicely arranged and have large print - also great for my dad.
∙ Great price, got this laptop for only $289
Cons: ∙ Slow Toshiba HDD
Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop for my dad (in his 60s) who's not very tech savvy. He loves the touch screen since the track-pad is a lot of work for him. Also the sturdy case was a must since he's a mechanic/gardener and not use to being delicate with his rough hands.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this laptop for my father (early 60s with no computer skills) and it he loves it! I had no issues with the refurbished laptop and the touch display was a big bonues!
Touch screen is great for the not tech-savvy
speed is great unless gaming
Cons: Came with a Toshiba MQ01ABF050 HDD which is slow, but I haven't had problems yet.. I have a back-up drive just in case.
Other Thoughts: This was a great investment for an my non-tech savvy father who needed a laptop. The touch screen is a huge bonus for when the the touchpad isn't working for them. The speed is great for the average office user. I haven't tried playing games on the laptop besides bejeweled.. I don't expect my dad to play much else. :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-256M5M 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Runs great! I've had this in my ideapad y500 for a few months now, still boots in about 6 seconds! Easy install, and it did come with the screw it need to hold it in place.
Other Thoughts: I have this for my OS install and applications, then I keep most of my other data on the stock 1TB HDD. Love it!READ FULL REVIEW
