Review 3 for IdeaPad S215
Small and Powerful for a Competitive Price
Date:July 23, 2014
"I purchased this laptop as a highly portable solution for productivity on business trips, looking up recipes in the kitchen, streaming video, and using the internet at home or on trips.
A Chromebook wouldn't work because I needed Microsoft Office in order to edit .pptx and .docx files from business collaborators. This compatibility is essential for editing graphics on presentations and papers, openoffice or an office app won't cut it.
Because the full license for Office was included in the price, this was the cheapest laptop for this size and performance. It would have been competitive even without this.
In terms of speed, it takes Office about 10 seconds to load the first time after startup, and about 2-3 seconds after that. So I have not bothered to upgrade the RAM.
No complaints other than my frustration at Windows 8 not being as friendly for PC users as Windows 7. This is what I took a star off for under features and reliability."
