Lenovo E545 Laptop
Date:April 7, 2014
"I needed a really good laptop quick for a decent price. So I purchased the E545 on 12/26/2013 and haven't had any issues at all. This is the first laptop I've purchased with an AMD processor. As with all the Lenovo (IBM TP) laptops that I have used and own this one exceeds my expectations. Granted changing the HDD out, I run Linux on a separate drive, is not as easy as other laptops, but it is not at all difficult either. It is feature rich and the price is great."
Pros: Battery, Processor, Durability, Video card, Keyboard/peripherals, Build Quality, serious value per $
Cons: Weight, size
"Everything works out of the box (wifi, keybindings etc) with vanilla ubuntu. Boots very quickly with an EFI install, powerful graphics at low wattage and cost (a machine with an intel 5100 will likely cost 3x as much at +10 watts under load). 3d graphics performance can be enhanced by adding the xorg-edgers ppa (Ctrl + Alt + T, sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa, sudo apt-get update, then go to software settings/additional drivers and switch to fglrx 13 [open source] and restart). Using LXDE/openbox desktop the keybindings for multimedia and volume do have to be altered however. Also to use steam one will probably have to wait for the wine repository to be updated to 1.6.2, as 1.7.14 seems to be unstable with some applications."
"I was pretty happy with this laptop until one evening I closed the lid, then that was it. No more boot up. Turned out the motherboard was cooked. Lenovo's warranty is good...they had it back in a week. I think this may be an isolated thing."
