Great but with a few annoying flaws

Pros: - Screen looks great
- Runs games and software well. Just for reference, I play Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3, Civ 5, etc, and it runs them very well. I haven't tried any games that really push the graphical limits, but for almost all modern games this laptop will run fine.
- I also develop on it. The big screen is great for that, and performance-wise there are no issues, even when working on 3D games.
- Wifi card seems fine

Cons: - The keyboard can be annoying. Some commonly used keys are weirdly small, the whole thing feels a bit cramped, and when typing fast the keyboard sometimes can't keep up. Once you get used to it it is OK, but not ideal.
- The USB ports sometimes take a while to recognize new devices. I think this is an issue with the physical ports themselves as they feel a little loose. Not sure if this is true for all of these laptops or if I get a faulty one. The USB ports do generally still work but sometimes it takes some fiddling.
- The f*&king ethernet port! This thing drives me crazy. It latches onto ethernet cables with a vice grip and I feel like I'm about to tear the laptop in half every time I take out an ethernet cable. If you are frequently inserting and removing ethernet cables this will drive you insane.

Other Thoughts: Despite the flaws I do really like the laptop. I'm not sure if I would universally recommend purchasing it over other options, as there are lots of good laptops out there without the flaws, however if the price is right then this laptop will do the trick. I considered returning it due to the keyboard, usb ports, and ethernet port, but I kept it and after 6+ months it is still working well.

Flawless

Pros: I don't have the issues with the keyboard that have been reported, but I have a heavy touch when I type. This unit has decent battery life, and has handled my video games without lag. (Civ5, Battlefield Hardline,). Thin and light hardware, but feels solid and well built.

Cons: None that I detected.

Other Thoughts: I have 30 years in the computer industry.

Don't buy for the numbers pad

Pros: Screen is great anti-glare for those of us who use notebooks for work.

Cons: I, and most others I know, buy these 17" notebooks for the keypad. Don't. The numbers pad feels small and awkward. The whole keyboard does, actually, but the rest you can get used to. The biggest problem with the numbers pad is its odd "0" key configuration - one key wide under the 2. The right arrow is placed where the other half of the zero key usually goes and that center placement is surprisingly difficult to reach with accuracy. I fear that this keyboard configuration is going to lead to errors - and for those of us who work with numbers, that's a whole lot worse than a simple "typo."

Other Thoughts: This is one of the few notebooks available with the non-glare screen and a numbers pad - but if you need a numbers pad, this is not a good solution. Be prepared for a serious 'getting used to" stage.

Needed a better keyboard layout

Pros: Everything except the keyboard layout was awesome. If that doesn't bother you, this is a good machine.

Cons: As a teacher, I bought this for doing a lot of word processing and lesson planning, and I just couldn't understand why so much space for the keyboard was wasted. The keys are all squished together into the center of the laptop, and there is no way to distinguish between them by touch. Even the keypad was made up of tiny, thinner keys. I returned the laptop for these reasons.

Outstanding Laptop

Pros: Completely satisfied with this purchase. Solid, sleek and well made. Very quiet, even when the fan throttles up, you can barely hear it. I've tested it with a few higher end games and it handled them quit well. As long as your not an extreme gamer, this laptop is more then adequate. I researched laptops for almost a month before finally choosing this model. I decided on a non-touchscreen because I can't stand the glare from touchscreen displays, this model's display is excellent with no glare at all. Also the sound from the JBL speakers is very impressive. I was concerned about Windows 8.1 that it comes with, but once you get familiar with it, it's not bad at all. In fact when using it in desktop mode, it's almost identical to Windows 7.

Cons: The only cons I can think of is it would have been nice if the battery lasted a little longer. I usually get about 3 to 3 and half hours on a charge. And I run the display at 100% brightness on battery and plugged in. Wish all 3 USB ports were 3.0, but only 1 is 3.0 and the other 2 are 2.0. Also a back-lit keyboard would have been nice but not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: For the price point of this laptop, I can easily recommend it.

Lenovo Laptop Z70 Intel Core i7 5500U (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: Super fast (I was abbe to run 3 VMs simultaneously), Super quite, boots very fast. great value for the price

Cons: A lot of unnecessary software and demos included. Keyboard layout could be better since its a 17" machine and there is lots of space to better lay out the keys

Excellent!!

Pros: Excellent for the price.
Its as is described in the specifications..

Cons: None, the only thing it doesn't have is light in the keyboard but it isn't necessary. Maybe it haves a los of pre-installed stuff of Lenovo but its okey!

Excellent Laptop but Hinge Issues

Pros: Everything about this laptop is excellent. It has a beautiful screen, incredible hardware for the price, and runs fast. I have had no software issues. Simply put, it's a beautiful computer that I'm glad I bought.

Cons: The only annoyance was the incredible amount of bloatware that came installed, and despite that there are no huge problems. However, not even a month into owning this laptop, the hinge on the right side of the laptop is making a clicking noise and forcing the chassis to partially come out of where it should be right by the dvd drive.

Other Thoughts: If I did not need a laptop for class or work, I would return this for another one, but due to workload and whatnot, I simply cannot afford to wait on a machine. It looks like I'll have to use the warranty in the next two months either for repairs or a whole new machine if the problem simply gets worse. It's a shame this happened, because I suggested a friend get this laptop a day before I had this problem. I would not have suggested it to him if this manifested beforehand.
