Fast, decent battery life & easy to setup! Good purchase

Excellent and inexpensive laptop. Well recommended!

Design is a bit dull and plastic-ish but that does not detract for my ratings at this price point.

SSD at low cost, does everything I need for a good price. Feel of keyboard good. Metal hinges give confidence.

charging cable could be a bit longer but not a deal breaker.

Fast & runs Win 7 Pro

Too much bloatware, over 60 GB of Operating system / Lenovo programs on the 120 GB SSD. May have to wipe & do a clean install.

Lenovo E50-70 80JA

 

Sleek design, fast start up thanks to SSD, quiet, does everything I need to run my home automation system, i.e. sit there and be reliable and power efficient.

It is quite big compared to other laptops I use, I wouldn't want to carry it anywhere, but then in my use case I won't
