Good Product but keyboard is defective!

 

I would not recommend Lenovo product ever, a keyboard cost how mus=ch to send me a new one. They were notified of this problem right out of the box. A company that does not stand behind their product is nt a company I would to do business with!

Backlit keyboard is a great feature

The keyboard is defective and Lenovo will not honor replacing or repairing this keyboard. Space bar does not work and most letters intermittently skip so every other sentence I must g back and insert the letters it has skipped or omitted. Lenovo will...

Good Budget Laptop

 

You can find a repair guide on Lenovo's website for disassembling it. My tips for disassembling it: take all the screws in the bottom out, making sure to keep the two closest to the screen separate (these are the M2.5 ones). There's a hole to push the...

Backlit keyboard is nice, mine is evenly lit and easy to type on. Easy transition from my old HP. Numpad good for those who need it. 1080p screen Discrete graphic card, Batman Arkham Origins was still playable at ~24 fps at high settings, 1080p. Good...

Servicability. Replaced the hard drive and RAM when I got it. Lots of tiny screws (all M2 but 2 they decided to throw you off and make M2.5, which are nearly impossible to tell apart visually. You almost have to take the whole laptop apart to replace...

Great Laptop for Engineering software Purpose

 

-i would recommend this laptop for engineering software purpose and gaming because you won't get any cheaper laptop for these purpose.

Nice body finish,good speaker,I purchased this laptop for engineering software purpose like i wanted work on Auto-cad,Pro-e, Solid-works,Revit. I believe this is best laptop for engineering students.

-Screen Brightness not good -its very hard to update ram in this laptop -low battery life -non removable battery -the worst thing-very bad touchpad

Great Deal

 

I got this when it was on sale for about $400. I am more than pleased with it for the amount i paid, especially after paying another hundred for an SSD and another 4GB of RAM. Solid laptop. Full HD display, which should be standard for laptop screens...

Installing SSD and extra ram was annoying, you have to completely unscrew the bottom which involves removing screws under the keyboard, I have no idea why they made it so difficult to upgrade. I can't think of any reason to require anyone to remove the...

Great Laptop!

 

Barely had this laptop for about a month and has been working great. My wife spilled a drink all over the keyboard and mouse and thought it may have been ruined. Let it sit in rice overnight, put back together and so far its working! This is a tough...

Light, sleek and fun to use.

Bottom case is a bit tough to take apart for a hard drive or memory replacement.

One of the more inexpensive laptops to include a discrete GPU

 

On balance, and for my needs, the pros outweighed the cons. I did add another 4gb ram stick and swapped the slow 5400rpm drive for an SSD so its responsive and can handle all office tasks, some media editing and lower end gaming. Happy with the...

-Discrete GPU -Low Price

-Difficult to access hard drive and ram -Some keys on the keyboard are smaller and require adjusting to

Great Laptop!!

 

If you plan on going with this laptop invest the extra couple of dollars on a SSD and another GB stick because you want that duel channeling for your RAM, remember the more ram you have more applications you can run. As this is somewhat a slight gaming...

Good Price for a decent laptop, you aren't going to find a better price anywhere else on this laptop for all the features you get. It runs fast and efficient, has decent back lighting for the keyboard, keyboard layout is very similar to your normal...

I don't like that it says its a dedicated graphics card when its not, its a duel graphics using the Intel Graphics HD 5500 and the AMD Radeon R7 M360 it will switch between the two when higher performance is needed. The HDD for this is nice but its...

Excellent deal

 

Would recommend

If you are not a nitpicker then this laptop is fantastic. Now I am of the school that does not trash a product because of any minor shortcoming so perhaps the other people of my age will find a reason to complain about it but not me! Tons of storage...

Display is not quite as good as you would expect. But the people who review it and say "snarf werst displer evur" are just babies.
