This review is from: Lenovo Essential B590 (59366616) Notebook Intel Core i3 2348M (2.30GHz) 2GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000 15.6" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit upgradeable to Windows 8 Pro
Pros: Excellent notebook. Windows 7 64 Pro. Smudge free surface that looks like all business. Great full keyboard. 4 USB ports, 2 2.0, 2 3.0.Good security software. Great Price.
Cons: Only has 2 GBs memory installed.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded the ram to 8GBs GSkill 4x2 1600. Installed an Intel 120 GB 320 SSD I had laying around. Start button to log on screen in 11 seconds. Instantly opens up anything, Very fast machine now. AMTOnline delivered in 7 days from Georgia to L.A. This is a new machine with an Intel i3 3110m processor with the HD4000 graphics. After installing all Lenovo updates the WEI score is 6.5. With the cost of the machine and the ram and SSD it is still a bargain. I use the 320 GB HDD after wiping as an external drive in an inexpensive enclosure through The USB 3.0 ports. Registered with Lenovo. -1 egg for the installed ram, but due to price, no problem. I have over 100 programs installed now and no slow down of any kind. This machine exceeded my expectations. I am a happy camper.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: New egg is an excellent organization. One of the best on line shopping experiences available.
Cons: The Power color ax 7850 2 GB is a piece of junk. I bought one and did everything possible to make the card work, including resetting the cmos. It would not light up the monitor through any output port.. Power color was no help and said DOA. Sent it back to New egg for an exchange. Received a second card. same problem only one of the screws fell out of the DVI connector. Not a good sign. Same issues, three computers tested. It was to replace a Power color HD6850, which works fine and is back in my machine again. My machine is as flawless as a P.C. can be, so it isn't my P.C. that is the problem. So much for a bottom tier 3rd party AMD graphics card assembler. The ole ya git what ya pay for scenario.
Other Thoughts: New egg will continue to get my business. The ax thing is re boxed and being returned for a refund and I will rethink my GF upgrade at another time. The one star is deservedly for New egg.READ FULL REVIEW
