I've had this computer for a little over a month now and so far I am pleased. I have had more problems with the Windows 8 so far than I have with the computer. Overall I do enjoy this computer and the tweaking I have had to do to it. I have bought 2 Lenovo products in the past before (desktop and tablet) and if I need another device in the future I will definitely look at them. I would recommend this to students
Pros: AMD makes it pretty fast Its pretty and touch screen Enough RAM for gaming for Steam and League fans out there. I use my Calculus programs and Stats programs for school work on here and I don't have any problems with freezing or precision I buy my textbooks on my laptop and it is easy to read and edit with the touch screen. Lovely actually. Battery life is pretty good. I get about 3 and a half hours while gaming or netflixing and almost 5 if I dim the display turn off the wifi and type and study like I am supposed to. :)
Cons: Windows 8 is annoying! The outside is metal, so it is cold to hold especially when you are trying to curl up in the winter with Netflix you will probably need a blanket. Windows 8 is annoying A lot of the keyboard shortcuts I used to use in Windows 7 do not work on here. Windows 8 is annoying. Not as much memory as I hoped and I have to run a lot of programs but I got a passport so its fine. I keep my movies on it. Its actually about as heavy as my old laptop that was 15.6 inches with an optical drive but this one has no optical drive. Oh. I must be forgetting something..... Oh yeah. Windows 8 is a piece of crap! A couple days ago installed a touch version of Ubuntu on here because I could not take it anymore and I love it. I don't recommend that for everyone though it's a lot of work.
