1.0 out of 5 starsYikes!Sept. 11 2013

The display was all messed up. I had to use the HDMI cable to see the output on my TV. I thought it said it came with system seven but it said it had an unauthorized loaded OS. Half the keys in the keyboard didn't work. The laptop shipping box looked like it had been shipped multiple times to different people. Other than that, it was great!

This laptop has had its ups and down. However, I do enjoy its amazing performance with how it meets my expectations. This includes internet browsing, playing pc games, and multitasking with school work and other associations. I had a a problem last year with the hard drive according to my cousin that said that caused my windows to start up slowly, but this computer just runs like a beast. I would recommend it but its costly though. Take it at your own risk!
3.0 out of 5 starsGood functionality for the price; fragile constructionNov. 27 2011
By Eddie Davis - Published on Amazon.com
I had purchased this laptop for my son's 15th birthday in March. The wireless networking function ceased to work within two weeks. Lenovo tech support could offer little help. Amazon customer service was excellent, exchanging the unit for a new one.
Good processing speed and good features for the price. My son wrapped the laptop in bubble wrap and carried it in a padded computer case. The case fell about 2 1/2 feet in October which cracked the screen. We called Lenovo and they stated that the damage was not covered by warranty so we took it to an independent repair shop. I realize that laptop screens are fragile but surprised that the damage occurred with so much protection around the unit.
