"this was chosen as a replacement for 2 faulty hp p6 pavilion 2388ea's that I had had in 3 weeks. and honestly I cant understand why I didn't choose this first off.
it is amazingly quick, lots of room for upgrades, and easy to upgrade also. and the cool, auto and turbo functions are simply brilliant
I hate the fact this came pre loaded with mcafee IS and the amount of bloatware.
the keyboard will take a little bit of getting used to as its smaller than normal but I love this machine after 24 hours..."

"My grandson who is 14 loves the Lenovo. He has friends with other brands and his Lenovo lives up to theirs and surpasses in some respects. He loves the speed with which the Lenovo delivers. He can play any game and can even mod and upgrade without a problem. He loves the design and the lights and he is really proud of his Lenovo. The sales reps were great, however, the date of shipment was delayed for I do not know what reason. He was waiting for it to come. We stayed home so we would not miss it. It did not come until 2 days later. The fact that you have to be there to receive the purchase is a little tricky when it does not come on time. That is why the 4 stars in the overall rating. I thought about three stars but the computer itself is really great. Could have gotten a better graphics card though. I really like the way you can upgrade the computer for the fututre. All in All we are happy with the purchase"

Happy w/ My K430

Date:July 29, 2012
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Memory, Storage
Cons: Wireless card, Weight
"I am a big fan of my K430. I bought the top-of-the-line model. The core i7 paired with 16GB memory is blazing fast and great for my photo/video editing software.
It has lots of inputs/outputs, including a handful of USB 3.0 and 2.0s, HDMI and DVI.
Selecting the Cool/Auto/Turbo efficiency setting on top of the tower seems a little wonky to me. It's not a laptop, its a tower-- wouldn't everyone just want 'turbo' power and speed at all times?
The video card is great compared to most computers out there, but as far as gaming video cards go, this is strictly middle-of-the-line. If you are a truly hardcore gamer, you might want to seek out a better video card.
The only huge negative I can report is that there is no WiFi card included in the computer! That seems pretty outrageous to me for a supposed top-of-the-line model I purchased. And it was not made clear at all in the Lenovo documentation that there is no Wifi. So I guess I will have to shell out for a WiFi adapter. Bummer.
Overall I would say this is a great value for a performance computer. If you need WiFi I might think twice though."
