Bought this for my wife. And she loves it. Fast, and doesnt have a huge amount of bloatware like other laptops. Most of the extra software is optional use so its easy to get rid of if you dont want it. My wife uses hers as simply as an entertainment medium. She plays bsic games, watches movies and explores the internet and has just discovered facebook. This laptop is made for serious work but serves quite well for entertainment. So I give it 5 stars. My wife is happy...so I am happy.
I purchased this item as a gift but ended up returning it. The product image shows that it has an HDMI port, but it does not. This was a deal breaker for me since my intent was to have it connected via HDMI to an HDTV. Overall, it's a great laptop at a great price (I got it for $399), but there was no HDMI.
I recently moved from a nicely furnished house with roommates to a cabin by myself. Spend a lot of time a work with my higher functioning personal computer (a ThinkPad T500) which has given me years of good service. Just wanted something functional for the web, managing personal files, and using some (mostly free) software. Not my first choice if I only had one computer, but very good for what I wanted it for. Quality, finish, and functionality seem excellent.
Overall I'm pleased with this laptop as a second computer for my husband's small business. The only improvement at this stage would be to have a better keyboard. I have an HP Elite Book and love the keyboard feel and sound. This has a cheaper clicking feel. Otherwise it looks great and was really simple to set up.
I am still using this computer as of today. Its been easy to use, but the YouCam stopped working and I had to uninstall the software. I am a huge fan of taking pictures so now I got to use my Digital Camera. Love the keys, but gotta keep dusting around each of the tiles. Nothing came off so far. Its a plus because I have a 3 and 4 year old who loves to pick on keyboards. The battery life is good when not over charged on the plug in battery so its better off if you charge it until its ready to die and do not over charge it because the battery box gets a little warm/hot. Overall, this computer is great! Its my first Lenovo and I'd consider it as a gift...
This laptop was a great price compared to the same thing at other stores, so of course that was it's main draw for me. When we first got it, it would not turn on entirely. The screen was just a sort of lit up grey, but nothing else was happening. We were really bummed out, but we left it on for hours and eventually when we checked back it was up and running! So, I'm not really sure what the problem was at first, but now it has been starting up fine ever since (about 32 seconds) and we have had no problems.
It seems to be working quickly and we don't have a lot of reasons for using it other than music and to store pictures, so for us it is fine. I have no idea how it would hold up for games etc, and we don't even have it online so I'm not sure how fast it is with videos etc either. But for what we wanted it for, it is just fine!
This is a great laptop! I love it. I got it for school mostly and it's great for that the battery lasts for about 4 1/2 hours but I like the screen brightness to be all the way up, so it could last for longer if you turned that down. The face password doesn't really work but I didn't get it for that so that doesn't really matter to me. It does have a great camera and wonderful sound. It's really easy to use.
I am very pleased with this computer. I was actually quite surprised at how many great features it has and how well it has worked, given the low price. My wife and I use this computer as our primary laptop, so we use it often in a variety of capacities. It has functioned perfectly. It is quick and has more than a sufficient amount of memory and storage space for everything we do. I highly recommend this product.
