3 out of 5 eggs Good hardware for the price 12/26/2013

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad S415 14" Touch AMD A6-5200 4GB / 500GB HD Win 8 (59385549)

Pros: Very good touch screen Win8 Laptop for the price. I paid 375.00 w no tax and no shipping. The A6-5200 is equal to an Core i3 processor.

Cons: No really a con since the price is 375.00 but, here are the issues.

1. You can hear the fan even when the PC is idle

2. Laptop is not very fast - 5400 RPM HD single slot for RAM.

3. Difficult to open bottom cover without breaking the retain tabs in the front of the laptop. Make sure you google for the service manual before opening.

4. I was unable to locate a MSATA SSD slot on the motherboard. This slot would of allowed me to install a MSSD for Windows and programs while leaving in the 500 HD for storage.

5. No way of creating recovery disk for for a new HD install. Lenovo support wanted $ 59.99 to mail me a set of recovery disks. I am going to use parted magic and a bootable USB stick to run clonezilla for HD migration.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 8GB of RAM and Samsung SSD to upgrade performance. I can see HD and RAM usage is a bit high in performance monitor.

I will update when upgrade is done this week. Upgrade parts came to 240.00. So let see if we can get good performance for 615.00 in total.
