Perfect for my preteen daughter

Date:April 4, 2012
"I got this laptop for an absolute steal at Best Buy as a Christmas present for my preteen daughter. I was surprised at how nice a computer it is for what I purchased it for. I was just looking for something basic for her as her first laptop but this Lenovo is leaps beyond basic. Plenty of memory, fast processor and lots of extras (she especially likes the fingerprint access). Lots of installed software came with it and it was ready to go in about 15 minutes of set up. Screen size is perfect for her watching movies or the battery life is about 4 to 5 hours it seems. I highly recommend the laptop not only for preteens but anyone wanting a great laptop for under $400."

"Just purchased and received this wonderful machine,
It does all it stated and more
Very simple to set up
Great space saver , great price , great performance.
There was a coupon floating around or 300 .00 this made it a really terrific.
deal. The graphics are great , the sound is right on the money The bluray player is seamless.
The best thing is my wife loves it and has no problem using it .
Sleeps well Boots fast , shuts down fast (not speaking about my wife) the transfer of data from one machine to the other effortless.
the bang for the buck is there ..
thanks for making this product.

B500 Initial Impressions

Date:April 25, 2010
Pros: Processor, Memory, Display resolution, Screen size
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Security Features
"I'm an engineer with 25+ years of building and working with computers and was looking for a new All-In-One computer for the family. After comparing Lenovo with HP, Dell, and others, I settled on the B500 (08872GU model) as the best All-In-One hardware specifications for the money (a lot of folks seem to agree since the 4 week ship times for this model are MUCH longer than the other B500 models). After receiving the unit on 16 April and using it the past couple of weeks, I'm am very happy with my purchase. If Lenovo could get the Bluetooth keyboard/mouse issues worked out, I would give it 5 stars.
Additional Feedback:
1) DELIVERY TIME: Unit order to delivery time is horrible for a pre-configured machine (ordered online on 25 March, unit was shipped on 9 April, unit was received by me on 16 April 2010). Warning - expect to pay $50-$100 more than the displayed price due to Lenovo collecting sales tax for all 50 states on your order.
2) APPEARANCE: Overall fit looks great and even my wife agrees the machine is not quite as "masculine" as some other official reviews of this system. I still prefer the Lenovo A600 appearance, but I like the B500 specifications/price much better and can live with the orange trim on the machine.
3) BLUETOOTH KEYBOARD/MOUSE: Like many others, I've had initial problems getting the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to "pair" with the computer (even closely following the instructions in the Quick Guide and the small manual included with the unit). Eventually I got the mouse to "pair", but was forced to use a USB keyboard to get started. Once I logged in, I was able to go to the Bluetooth setup, delete the "Lenovo Bluetooth Keyboard" that was already there, the system immediately re-recognized my keyboard, I typed in the pass code and everything worked great. I am very careful when I shutdown the computer to turn off the computer, then the mouse and keyboard. On power up, I turn on the mouse and keyboard first and then the computer. If I forget to turn the mouse/keyboard first, I have problems getting them to pair with the computer again. According to "Mark_Lenovo" on the Lenovo forum, they are aware of this problem and hope to have a Bluetooth driver fix out sometime mid-April 2010. After using the system for two weeks with included AA alkaline batteries (two for the keyboard
