"I had more troubles with this computer than all my other computers put together. It would not boot, I would get it repaired, and within a month it was back to not starting. Even the one key recovery would not recover the computer."
"The letters decals wore out in about a year (just after the warranty) and after calling Lenovo they refused to send out new decals. I've had many other computers and this is the first time I've seen letters on the keyboard wear out. It was the "N" key (completely gone) and the "M" key (partially gone). The rest of the keys are ok. I've had many computers and this is the first time I've ever seen letters wear out completely on the keyboard. Very bad quality and rude customer service. A reliable company would have apologized and sent out a new set of decals without question. So be aware of Lenovo and their customer "service". No more Lenovo for me."
"only have owned for a year and had to return 4 times! the first time we returned it the tech told us it was a bad motherboard, bad hard drive etc. this was bought brand new! one reason why we bought this particular one was because it has the finger print lock out program not only was it a pain in the neck for this feature if it actually worked..but we had to take it in because the program the fingerprint uses was slowing the computer down/freezing it up!! Why put a program that isn't compatible? This experience has been horrible and now that our warranty is up we are stuck with a broken laptop!! my advice to consumers buy a different brand"
"I have had a Toshiba Satellite c655 laptop for most part of this year doing heavy intensive business work,and a Hp laptop as well.I just got the Lenovo B570 1068 for a relative and tested it and was thoroughly impressed.I don't know,why i never got this laptop instead of the other previously mentioned. The boot process was astounding,clean and fast in a few seconds,i was in the windows screen looking at the desktop icons.Wow!Talk about an exhilarating user experience!The laptop is packed with plenty of security features such as the BioExcess application that works in conjunction with the fingerprint reader for login in security.In addition,there is the Lenovo Veriface application for biometric login using your face as a password.The touchpad is sensitive and responsive as well,no need to use excessive pressure to try and get the cursor keys or the touchpad to work,other applications have been added for additional functionality such as the lenovo Telephony to video chat with others and the One Key Recovery Suite which allows one ,a choice of revocery options.Lenovo definately had a lot of End user experience in mind when they designed this laptop.By adding all these features and application,the customer does not need to go outside of Lenovo to source the application independely.It is also quite unlike other laptops whose fans are noisy and tend to heat fast.I would call this laptop the quiet genuis!!Kudos to the great minds at Lenovo"
"I would highly recommend this laptop to everyone. I got it around July and am more than happy with it.
1. Functionality is superfast, solid design and more than anything else, the security features that come with it are excellent.
2.You have a secret drive in your computer that you can access with your fingerprint scan, which means third party accessing your important files or documents is impossible. You can increase/decrease the size of secret drive anytime.
3. It has a fingerprint scanner and also a face recognition software. You can encrypt/decrypt your files, set passwords/fingerscan for them. I have never come across any other company that offers this much security and protection at such a less price.
4. The i3 processor runs applications like charm. Keyboard includes numeric keypad. The look and feel for this laptop is perfect! I have even tested some games on it and had no probs with that although I will be using it more for designing and studies.
5.Its light and the battery lasts longer than 4 hrs if you are not watching movies or playing music. And the surface is not fingerprint friendly so its clean most of the time.
6. Great 8GB RAM and processor speed, nice speaker sound.
7. Great data recovery features, automatic back-up options, one key recovery feature, nice touchpad with verticle and horizontal scrolling.
Other than that all ports work excellent on this laptop.
And for people who have this problem about GETTING STUCK on welcome screen or getting stuck at 'PLEASE WAIT' while booting, you have to uninstall VERIFACE .... its the one interfering with normal Windows7 boot-up. I had the same problem and after uninstalling veriface the problem is solved."
"This laptop is fast easy to use and has great security options that and coming with add-ons like a finger print reader ( which most computers do not have), a roomy 500 GB hard drive and ram all for $ 499.00 this is also better than my dell studio which costed $ 999.00 so who ever is thinking of buying this this a great option i also had not problems what so ever besides the only 5 hr battery but that depends how much you are away from a power source!"
