Solid laptop 04/18/2013
Contrary to the other review, I've not had a problem getting with getting to point of factory restoration with its pre-installed Windows 7 Pro. You can create recovery disks if you wish, which are for Windows 7 Pro. This laptop also ships with Windows 8 Pro disks if you would like to move forward.
If you wish to get back to factory settings without creating a set of disks, boot into the recovery prompt & perform a factory reset restoration. The recovery partition is assigned a Q: drive mapping when you are in Windows. If you are paranoid about your hard drive dependability, create a recovery media set for Win 7 using the preinstalled tools.
Bloatware is minor in my opinion. Less than the HPs & Dells, Samsungs, etc that I typically come across. You can remove whatever you wish.
Not so much a con, but I wish Lenovo made a 15" model laptop running an i7 chip with Win 7 Pro with a number pad. Obviously not a required for most purchases, but it is desired for some.
I've ordered at least a half a dozen of this exact model over the last 3 months.
