Pros: Good Price for a decent laptop, you aren't going to find a better price anywhere else on this laptop for all the features you get. It runs fast and efficient, has decent back lighting for the keyboard, keyboard layout is very similar to your normal desktop keyboard.
Cons: I don't like that it says its a dedicated graphics card when its not, its a duel graphics using the Intel Graphics HD 5500 and the AMD Radeon R7 M360 it will switch between the two when higher performance is needed.
The HDD for this is nice but its very slow it runs at 5400 RPM so its slow and takes it a good bit to boot up like 10 seconds plus after that it runs nice and smooth no problems, I recommend a good SSD drive, I bought a SSD drive and installed it and Zoom Zoom faster then ever now, doesnt take me more then like a second to boot up to my desktop.
The screen is glarly and you have to get it just right however their are screen glare sleeves you could put on it to prevent that glare.
The 4GB to the laptop is only one memory stick but it is efficent however i recommend you getting another 4GB atleast to install.
The one hard thing about this laptop it is a pain to install the SSD and the new ram, you have to take all back screws out, pop out the keyboard unscrew screws behind the keyboard and then remove the optical drive and then you can take the back cover off. Once you get it off its easy to install new ram and the SSD of your choice.
Other Thoughts: If you plan on going with this laptop invest the extra couple of dollars on a SSD and another GB stick because you want that duel channeling for your RAM, remember the more ram you have more applications you can run.
As this is somewhat a slight gaming laptop and casual laptop for everyday use.
I also recommend you burn a backup media of the laptop as Lenovo doesn't provide you with a recovery CD only a recovery partition, I also recommend if you go with a SSD to clone it over, it makes the process go faster and much easier.
This machine does have McAfee but i dont like McAfee so I recommend using a different virus protection and get rid of it ASAP. For reasons i could state just take my word on it.
The WiFi connection is great and very dependable
