Pros: Price, matte finish on screen, excellent keyboard, Win7 for those that hate 8, optical drive included.
Cons: The laptop is more or less unusable out of the box. The Windows install failed for me, too, and 2GB of RAM isn't enough with all of the bloatware included. A fresh install of Windows fixed all of those issues, but a recovery CD is not included, so I had to download an iso of Win7 pro from Microsoft. Hopefully you have another PC to do this on... lol. Acquiring the proper drivers was a bit of a hassle, too. Lenovo's support site isn't very well designed.
Once I got it running, it works well enough, but frankly 2GB of RAM isn't enough. I upgraded days after my purchase.
Once I got it up
Other Thoughts: I use it for school exclusively. Once I upgraded the RAM and installed a fresh copy of Windows, it was perfect for my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)
Pros: Extremely fast to boot, very stable, no driver issues (yet), easily customizable, lots of new shortcuts for easy navigation.
Cons: Slight learning curve, lack of "classic mode"/no start menu option. Gestures aren't as useful without touchscreen, Windows Media Center not included.
Other Thoughts: If the start screen bothers you, install ClassicShell, and you'll have a start menu. Just customize the UI to your liking, and it instantly becomes a souped up version of Win 7 with lots of new toys and directx 11.1 support.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Very bright. Good contrast ratio. Colors look good, compared to other TN panels I've used.
- 2 ms refresh, no noticeable input lag. This thing is meant for gamers. I play lots of first person shooters, and I couldn't ask for better performance.
- It's huge.
Cons: -No VESA mounting option. Wobbly base. You need a large and sturdy desk for this monitor.
- Small amount on backlight bleed along the top and bottom edges of monitor. It's really not bad, though.
- 1920x1080, rather than 1920x1200 or some higher resolution.,
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a large monitor, and you don't want to spend $800- 1500 on a large IPS panel, look no further. If you're a gamer, this is probably your best option of the TN panels available.
My decision came down to two monitors: this and the Dell Ultrasharp u2711. I ultimately decided on the cheaper option, especially since Newegg had it on sale at launch.
I just couldn't bring myself to spend $1100 on a 27'' monitor when my 32'' IPS HDTV cost $600. Maybe they'll offer it at a reasonable price one day.
Assuming my p2770h lasts, I'm very satisfied.
