Nice machine for the price I paid in 2015.

Pros: Faster than my previous laptop.
Big hdd even though not a SSD but that would have change the price.

Cons: To much preloaded items, that slowed down the laptop.

Other Thoughts: First thing I did with this machine was to get a DVD with Windows 10 pro.
With that installed the laptop got so much faster and easier to tweak.
Using the machine for music recording/editing and SketchUp drafting.
Machine is still running fast even being two years old.

Terrible

Pros: -Big screen
-Free windows 10 update

Cons: -Awful battery life. After about a month of use the computer would die in about an hour.
-Not durable at all. Had to replace the hard drive twice because it got physically damaged through the computer somehow. Screen got internally cracked as well.
-Computer will shut off at 10% battery even though it's not dead, then turn back on.
-Keyboard is terrible, have to smash the keys to type.
-Mousepad randomly glitches and won't let you control it sometimes.

Other Thoughts: -Don't buy

Great little machine!

Pros: I use my laptop mostly for development, and it does very well to that end. Runs very quickly on Ubuntu 15.10 and is plenty capable under Win 8.1 as well.

Cons: The keyboard can feel a little cramped at times, I guess, but it's not a big enough deal for me to dock an egg. The hard drive isn't very fast, but that's only an issue when you run into swapping (which, thanks to all the memory in this thing, rarely happens).

Other Thoughts: I came to this laptop from a great old Macbook that was built like a tank. I was a little afraid that this notebook would pale in comparison, and the fact is that it isn't as sturdy as my old Macbook. However, it is a quality notebook at a great price, and I would not hesitate to buy it again.

DON'T BUY!!!

Pros: Fast for a budget pc

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: This is a cheap product by Lenovo. It died on my in the first month of use. Two friends of mine that also purchased it are also having issues with it. When I called the local warranty shop, they also had terrible things to say about it.

Waste of Money

Pros: None

Cons: This laptop has given me nothing but a headache. I bought because of it's awesome memory and speed for photo editing. All it's done since I bought it is crash. I lost my photos that I spent hours editing them, even though I saved them to the hard drive. It caused me to miss out on a job opportunity because it was absolutely useless. And the battery on here only lasts about 2-3 hours. Don't waste your time or money.

Corei7&16gb!!!

Pros: Pretty freaking simple it has 16gb and for me thats essential (music production on the go (FL12, Reaper, Pro Log etc...) I can go from total off mode to producing in less than a minute. 1tb harddrive is perfect. its relatively light and thin even with the disk tray.

Cons: lots of glare from screen outdoors ( i hate fresh air anyways) mine came with superfish malware 5minutes to get rid of https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/superfish_uninstall
the keyboard is not backlight and last battery generally 2-3hrs

Other Thoughts: I specifically bought this laptop because of its processor and ram for use on my music. I got it for $550 and I'm extremely pleased with it.

Great Buy

Pros: The laptop is lightweight and sleek, even with the disc drive. It runs cool even when I play Civilization V at max settings, which is one of the reasons why I bought it. i7 is lovely. Key spacing was just right. Speakers, although located beneath the laptop, are decent. Dolby is much better than Beats audio. Touch pad is usable, but I would recommend using an optical mouse if you plan on using this laptop for all of your computing needs

Cons: keyboard flex is very noticeable, but does not impede typing. USB port locations are frustrating. Only 1 USB 3.0 port. Touch pad clickers are horrendous. You have to exert force to get a response out of them, which is another reason why I'd recommend an optical mouse.

Other Thoughts: I would have preferred a 1080p display, but the 1366x768 is passable. However if you are outside or in a bright area the laptop's screen will act as a mirror. Indoor use for the screen is more than decent. This laptop is a fingerprint magnet, but that does not bother me too much. I get around 1 to 2 hours of battery life between web browsing and watching movies. Closer to 1 hour for playing Civ V.
