Pros: Price, Quality, Battery Life, Features. Lenovo is a very well built product.
Cons: The only thing that annoys me about it and the rest of the laptop/notebooks on the market, is that the touch pad is off to the left and it makes you use both hands, if you are right handed. A little bit awkward.
Other Thoughts: After having Toshiba laptops for years, I couldn't find one configured the way I wanted and at a price point I was comfortable with. I saw this in the Newegg Columbus Day Sale emailer and picked it up for less than laptops with a lot less processing power and quality. The Intel i5 has a ton of processing power and runs everything I have, effortlessly. The 4 cores and 3.2GB Turbo make multi-tasking a breeze. I swapped in a spare OCZ Vertex 3 SSD (loaded with Win 7 Pro) and 8GB of G. Skill matched RAM. Wow!! It's a Rocket Ship! Boot to Desktop in less then 10 seconds. Another thing is that it came with the 6 cell Li-Cylin battery. Many of the other brands are coming with the non-replaceable batteries and AMD is integrating the A series processors for laptops, into the MB. Didn't want any of that. I can't believe how long the charge lasts. After 3 hours on high-perf, it still had 68%. I'm "Really" Impressed with this laptop. Only problem is that I won't have the patience to use the pc's at work ..READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Z506 75 watts RMS 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers
Pros: I was surprised to find the length of the wires worked fine with just a little rearranging. Just can't get a decent surround sound from it. Rear speakers are weak and too much echo. I'm using the on-board sound from my ASUS M2N-SLI motherboard and Vista Ultimate 64 bit. I've never had any sound problems with it before, using an antique Cambridge Sound Works 2.1 computer speaker setup that, Quite Frankly, blows the Z506 system away. But, with that said ..for $75 it sounds fine and depending on what you're listening to (e.g.) Music, Video, CD etc, sometimes you get a pretty decient sound. Plenty loud, but the rear surround speakers just don't want to work hard enough.
Cons: If the rear surround speakers would work better ..it would be nice.
Other Thoughts: Yes, my on-board sound is 5.1 capable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: After reading the Reviews of past problems with interference it seemed as though they had addressed that problem with this model. I have no problems. I sit on the couch, about 8 feet away and play games, watch videos and browse the net. the ergonomics are perect and the trackball and buttons are just right. I really makes it too easy to be a Couch Potato!
Other Thoughts: I like it!READ FULL REVIEW
