Most bang for the buck! 08/04/2012
There are a few key features that make this laptop the best buy for the money.
Win 7 Pro
4 GB RAM with 1 open slot (verified)
7200 RPM hard drive (verified)
Gigabit network port
USB 3.0 (not every new laptop has these)
Intel Centino chipset
This laptop is blazing fast. All the software I had been running on my Vista laptop loaded on without a hitch.
Finger reader works awesome! It even stores the password to web sites, and I can log in by swiping my finger.
It is loaded with bloatware (this is typical of all brands) that needs to be uninstalled. Some programs (like the finger reader suite) you had to install from the software (swtools) folder on the hard drive.
There is a multitude of Lonovo software on here as well. I uninstalled most of it, as it is not necessary for what I do.
Be prepared to spend several hours uninstalling, installing programs, updates, etc.
