"I was extremely satisfied with my purchase. The included features for the price were hard to pass up. Overall the feel and performance were great.Then after about a month of light use- I was still using my old computer as i transitioned over to the new one. It would try to power up but never boot. No safe mode - No Prompts - No Working Drives. In for repairs before ever using it fulltime. Sad excuse for quality control. Motherboard and Keyboard need to be replaced. Service and Turnaround were fast and efficient but should not have been needed on a new unit. I would love to recommend Lenovo because i do enjoy using this laptop now and it is nicer than most others i considered. For my uses I just don’t know if it will hold up. Obviously quality is not what it used to be. My old Panasonic Toughbook ran strong for 9 brutal years without a failure until the screen cracked! Yes I do not replace equipment till it breaks.
"Got the 14" with 1600x900 HD+, 1T HDD, & 9-cell battery. I'm a fan of the pointing stick, but turned off the trackpad, as it would spaz out when I typed or put hands near it.
Watching movies is fast, but a pain because there is only ONE good viewing angle, and it's very fussy. I have to tilt the screen back quite far for detail to appear, and forget watching with another person, nobody sees well.
My wifi radio cuts out periodically; need a driver update.
Overall, it's fast, dependable, lightweight, and solid. If I can have the pointer stick and find a better display at upgrade time, I'll stay a happy Lenovo camper."
