Lenovo Edge E545 (20B20011US) Notebook AMD A-Series A6-5350M (2.90GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8450G 15.6

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Same. nice keyboard. Decent Look. Can upgrade. Comes with Windows 7 (you do not want windows 8 without a touch screen, period.). Works great with openSuSe 13.1, not so well with Windows 7 or 8.1

Cons: SLOW. Do yourself a favor uninstall the Lenovo power manager - use windows settings. Lenovo Power manager crashes - causes issues. Should have come with an A8 or A10 processor. The A6 is pathetic on performance (even compared to a 2 year old Thinkpad T410 M520 which is bad). No LED's to minitor Hard Drive, Wan/Lan. This is a joke, since the machine is already slow - you do not know if it is reading the hard drive or hanging.

Other Thoughts: This laptop had potential. The Lenovo software uses Adobe air, which is very bad, crashes, etc. At minimum uninstall the power manager. Install more memory. For the price an only an A6 Lenovo did wrong to the customers with only 4 gigs of ram and an A6 processor. Install 8, better yet 16GB. I have had good luck with the Gskill F3-1600C9D-16GRSL with this laptop. Install a 7200 RPM hard drive, or an SSD if you can afford it. the performance becomes better with both options, and battery is not suffering too much with the 7200 RPM. Basically - buy for Windows 7 since there is no touch screen, then plan on updates - Like memory, hard drive and processor (to an A8 or A10). With that said, this machine is not engineered properly with price point. BTW, I have a degree in Electrical and computer engineering. This is a bad machine for the price.

1 out of 5 eggs Very bad product 04/05/2014

This review is from: Total Defense Premium Internet Security - 5 User

Pros: the settings are easy to work with, interface is pretty decent.

Cons: Read the reviews, it is at the bottom of the Virus scan detection (But rated good at removing after viruses/malware installs). Uses a license each time you install, even on the same computer. Corrupts fairly easy with constant pop ups to update, even with the new definitions. So - re-install, but can not do after you run out of licenses. Contact tech support and the company only wants to remotely access your computer. NO WAY. Customer service is worse then Norton, Kaspersky or bitdefender. Caution if you are replacing Norton. Even clean install has a chance to cause issues with your computer. you are better with a fresh install of Windows. I am a system builder with Windows and Linux. I have not seen this poor of a virus scanner since the mid 1990's.

Other Thoughts: Use with caution, the company's DRM is a bad joke. total defense keeps only wanting to fix there issues with remote administration. Anyone with any security common sense doe not do this. Good this this is only free thru Optimum online. i have seen it trash two copies of Windows 7 64 Bit, and one copy of Vista 32 Bit. Computer needed a fresh re-install of Windows.

  • Verified Owner

Pros: Affordable and nice keyboard

Cons: Slow, even with 16 Gigs Ram (upgrade). NO LEDS. Can not tell if hard drive is spinning, caps lock is on, or num lock is on. Cheapened to the point of not useful. Debating returning.

Other Thoughts: Buy another laptop. No LED's to even tell the basics such as hard drive spinning, caps lock, or num lock.
