Pros: Keyboard has a number pad. Windows 7, Battery life, so far.

Cons: Slow,painfully slow. Loaded with Lenovo bloatware apps that slow down the laptop even more. When all Lenovo apps are removed machine still runs slow, but at least it is somewhat usable. I haven't had to wait for what I type to show on the screen since Windows 95. If you need to go budget I would go with something different. I have worked with Celerons that run better then this laptop does. Very poor performance considering the chip is a Core i3. I knew when purchasing that this was a budget laptop but the performance if far below what you wold expect from the specs. This is the first Lenovo that I purchased since IBM sold the brand and it will be the last. I don't typically write review but this laptop drove me to it.

Very disappointing. Would leave 0 Eggs if I could.

Other Thoughts: I don't like the trackpad. there are no mouse buttons on it you can tap or depress the pad for a left click, and a right click is depressing the bottom right of the trackpad. I am so used to taping to click that I frequently double click because I tap the pad too hard. There is also no context menu key next to the space bar which would make the awkward right click a little more manageable. Scrolling by swiping the edge of the trackpad is frequently very slow to respond or lags like typing. Fn key is very porly placed as well if you are used to using CTL+Shortcut key you will frequently depress the fn key instead of the ctrl key that has been a standard on keyboards.
