Pros: Met exceptions with zippy enough mid-range performance @
Decent graphics quality.
Nice looking. It looks and almost feels metallic.
Easy access to internal parts for performing a drive swap.
Cons: Re-installed 8.1 to purge the bloatware and install a SSD but the drivers were easy to find so it all went smoothly.
The trackpad is kind of annoying but I expected this after reading the reviews on the Lenovo site.
Other Thoughts: The relatively new Windows 8.1 Media Creation Tool makes rebuilding OEM machines like this fairly easy. Make sure you create the USB with FAT32 for UEFI support.
The previous reviewer buys a Win 8.1 PC and proceeds to complain about it? SMH with bemusement.
Cons: Incorrect info listed?
Other Thoughts: It looks like the specs for this and title listing this as a SATA drive may be incorrect:
Refurbished: Seagate ST380815AS 80GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive (IMSourcing) Bare Drive
InterfaceSATA 3.0Gb/sCapacity80GBRPM7200 RPM
The current picture and the Seagate product page indicate that the ST380815AS is a Ultra ATA/100.
Pros: Real life performance feels as fast as any of my more expensive SSD's that benchmark higher. i.e. fast boots and program start-up.
Plenty of space for my 8.1 HTPC configuration. After loading all my apps and doing the SSDReview optimization 72% of the disk is still available (43GB of 59 formatted free).
Currently the lowest priced 64GB without any promotional tricks.
Includes a download of Acronis True Image for cloning which the Egg listing does not state.
The ADATA SSD toolbox is nicely done.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
