Despite many attempts I could not install windows 8 with a clean install on the SSD. I contacted Microsoft support and their team spent no less than 4 days attempting to install Windows onto the SSD with the brand new Y480 Ideapad. After 2 days, the call center assigned me the best technician available at a tier 2 level of support. The tier 2 technicians routinely perform about 10 Windows installations per day. They usually take the most difficult install cases. Using remote applications, they virtually monitored the entire install until boot. They ultimately could not install Windows 8. They concluded that the issue was my Lenovo laptop.
I contacted Lenovo support. I was continually disconnected from calls after waiting on hold for long periods of time (this happened 3 times). Despite taking my phone number, none of the employees that I worked with called me back. I escalated support to two supervisors and to the manager of the customer support - literally the person that sets procedures for receiving calls.
During my calls, I discovered that there was a known issue with the Lenovo BIOS preventing users from making Windows 8 installs. Despite acknowledging this, I was not offered any support or suggestions as to how I could solve the issue with the BIOS. I was told that to receive any more assistance, I would have to pay for premium support from the software team. The hardware staff was rude and not at all interested in actually supporting the Lenovo product.
While this was going on, I read online forums and discovered a 'whitelist' maintained by the BIOS that only allows certain system configurations.Read more ›
on paper this computer has excellent specs for its size!!!! but the moment I turned the computer on, I noticed that the screen is very dark, and the colors off :( I played with the settings for hours and it did not help. I connected the computer to a monitor to see if it is the screen or the graphics card etc. In a nutshell I concluded that it is the screen. I called the lenovo customer service, and after an hour of connecting to the computer and running tests remotely, I was told that "it is a new computer, with a new screen. it just comes with that (strange) coloring and brightness, and there is nothing they can do about it" . I sent it back to the seller, and lost $200 in the transaction for shipping and restocking fees etc.
1- the screen that all y480 series come with, it is the cheapest screen I have ever seen
2- if it was a faulty screen, then it was the lamest customer service I have ever experienced
other than the cheap screen it is a good computer ... if the customer service was helpful or if they could replace the screen I would have kept this computer. it has excellent specs for its size, but cheap screen coupled with cheap customer service made me change my mind about lenovo.
It seems like PC companies are lowering their standards and competing with each other to produce the flimsiest disposable computers ever ... Unless you want a disposable computer, I would not recommend lenovo (except thinkpad series), hp, dell, compaq, asus, and even sony!!!
