Pros: No scratches, dings, etc. Screen is in great shape, there were no real cosmetic issues, it was a bit dirty. Booted right up to a clean copy of Windows 7, I immediately did the update to Windows 10. Runs like a champ!
Cons: The backspace is a bit sticky and unresponsive, just needs TLC. 2GB of ram are a bit slim so will need upgrade there. Battery holds charge for about 1 hr. WiFI won't reconnect after sleeping, I always have to do the automatic troubleshooting which resets the adapter, may be a driver issue. Other than that that no other issues.
Other Thoughts: For $61 this is a steal. I ordered a $120gb SSD which is more space than the 80GB it comes with for $50, and 2GB of memory for $13, so for a little over $120 i'm going to have a Windows 10 laptop that will probably outperform a lot of "new" laptops. My Toshiba from a year ago has an AMD A8 and 4GB of memory with Windows 10 and it already runs slower than the Lenovo, maybe a driver issue, but it's still pretty sad. Love this laptop!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: There was very little if any cosmetic damage. The screen had no dead pixels or scratches. Booted right up to Windows 7, you can tell it was a clean install, no bloatware. I then updated to Windows 10 for free, now it's like a new computer. I'm going to upgrade the ram to 4gb, which only cost $15.
Cons: Two cons. One is the backspace key, which is a bit sticky and unresponsive at times, I'll probably fix that quick though with a little TLC. The second and this is probably the biggest is the dead battery. The battery does not hold a charge and does not charge, but I don't really care since I don't really ever disconnect my laptops.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very satisfied with my laptop, which I got for $69 when it was on sale, you really can't beat that kind of deal. This laptop outperforms my new Toshiba with an AMD A8 and 4GB of ram on WIN10. That may be due to drivers at the moment, but this little Lenovo is much quicker for now. I do plan to go to an SSD for about $50, so $65 for upgrades plus the laptop's price is going to give me a stellar laptop for a little over $100.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you want a small form factor rig or MINI ITX, this is probably one of your few options, especially if the case is too small for GPUs.
Cons: It could run most games on low to medium settings at 30fps or less. Basically high end PS2 graphics and low end PS3 graphics, which for the price of the APU alone seems pretty weak.READ FULL REVIEW
