I can't complain!
Pros: In regards to Scott C's post. I read his review of this particular laptop and for the most part made my final decision based off of his review. I did research on the lenovo brand as well as making sure it lined up with my plans of use for a notebook. A student attending college classes needing something with decent power. A quick CPU that an i5 delivers, Ample memory plus capability to add more easily. Hard Disk I can easily replace to a higher capacity but I don't see the need right now as I have two 2TB USB drives. It's a quick little machine at a "GREAT" price tag. Thanks new egg. Window's 8.1 installed. Yeah the interface takes some getting used to after using XP, Vista, ME, 9x for so long. But it brings a fresh take to the table. We'll see as time goes. Boot process is lightning fast.
Cons: The keyboard does take a little getting used to as it is a little tighter than my previous laptop which I'm hanging on to. Just as backup machine. I wish the keyboard was back lit but I can't have everything for a nice price tag. The only other thing I could probably say would be a nice addition since it is a High Definition display is having a blu ray player out of the box instead of DVD but that could be a later upgrade.
Overall Review: Windows 8.1 is a fresh new GUI. I like having the up to date at least until 10 is released OS to learn and familiarize myself with, The more hands on you have with something the better. The laptop isn't piled with unwanted software at start which is a nice change for once at least from what I've seen. I can't stand Mc Afee but I won't turn down a free trial. Again the keyboard will probably be the biggest thing to get used to but it's not that big of a deal to overly concern yourself with when considering this machine. It's a great laptop for students. It's lightweight and affordable. Gaming I haven't done anything really with but I can imagine most MMO's you can play such as WOW for one as long as you don't crank the setting to maximum. Other than that Great laptop. Thanks Lenovo, and Newegg!
