Pros: It can play Diablo 3!
Windows 8 is useless without a touchscreen
Pros: Plenty of processor and RAM for most applications, haven't had any trouble with it, use it for programming mostly. Huge, gorgeous display, streams 1080p video with no problems. Battery lasts about 5 hours, really not bad for the size of the screen and non-conservative processor. Quiet fans, stays pretty cool. Feels like it is good quality, keyboard feels great with great response from the keys.
Cons: Honestly, Windows 8 isn't THAT awful. It takes some getting used to and is definitely optimized for use with a touch screen, but it isn't bad.
I definitely would not knock off a whole star just for the OS it comes with though. If I really hated it, I could install Windows 7 on it, so not a big deal.
One annoying thing is the placement of the trackpad. It is not centered, but more to the left, and because of that my left wrist hits it all the time when I am typing and moves the cursor. Very annoying!
It isn't all that heavy for it's size, but it is definitely a brick compared to ultra/netbooks.
Overall Review: I love it. Easily the best 300 bucks I have spent (bought it on Cyber Monday). I would recommend it to anyone.
Pros: under $300
low battery life
windows 8. unless u have a touchscreen it has no business on this machine. very annoying.
Overall Review: to access bios press f2 like theres no tommorow and eventually youll get there.
options are extremely limited. make sure to put everything on compatible and legacy mode if you want to boot from dvd drive or usb. otherwise it wont happen. worth the 300 with wondows 7.
Pros: For the 2 months that this laptop worked, it ran relatively well. It was fast and had it worked longer I would have been satisfied with it.
Cons: I purchased this laptop because I was under the impression that Lenovo made quality laptops and did not use cheap components. The hard drive on this laptop died two months after I purchased it. When I called Lenovo to get it fixed because of the one year warrantee and the extended service plan I purchased, the experience was less than satisfying to say in the least. Right off the bat, there was so much static on the line that I couldn't understand the customer service rep and had to repeatedly ask him to repeat himself. Despite that I continued on with the conversation, during which I was told that I would have to pay an additional charge to have Windows reinstalled on the laptop in order to get the hard drive replaced. When I questioned this, saying that I'd almost rather purchase a hard drive and install it myself just on principle, the customer service rep immediately became combative, telling me that I would spend more for a copy of Windows than to pay for Windows to be reinstalled. (Apparently it was silly for me to assume that when I purchased a computer with Windows preloaded that I should expect the warrantee to cover it being reinstalled if the hard drive went bad.) I then told the customer service rep that I would install another existing copy of Windows that I already owned, and to make a long story short he accused me of piracy. I will never purchase another Lenovo product again.
Pros: Cheap, screen is nice, pretty snappy for a cheap laptop, good looking case.
Cons: Windows 8, but I guess I just need to learn it. Still I would rather have Widows 7 on it.
Pros: Decent specs for the price
Cons: This laptop does not run smoothly at all. Comes loaded with bloatware. Simply couldn't stand to use it. I am not removing Windows 8 in the hopes that a previous OS will work better.
Pros: everything,excellent screen colors, nice speakers. Seems more than fast enough for anybody wanting an every day laptop.Looks well built. I bought a wirless mouse for this and it helps a lot when gettting around.
Cons: none so far.
Pros: Price, Haven't even fired it up yet so nothing else to say at this point
Cons: specs report 2 memory slots with one free. Ordered a stick of 4gig right away to get the max of eight. Bummer for me, Shoulda waited, only has one slot and that is occupied by the 4 gig stick. So now to get 8 gig I will have to toss both 4's instead of just adding one. Thanks Egg
