Great Value and Great Linux Experience

Date:September 21, 2014
"I bought this because I was looking for a reliable laptop that would run Linux very well. I got this and was pleasantly surprised to find that everything worked out of the box.
I purchased this with the AMD A-10 and am very pleased with the performance, I am able to play games like Portal2 and CS:GO at near full settings without any noticeable issues. The WiFi even with the default basic network card is good for being so basic.
I replaced the standard HDD with a 250GB Samsung EVO 840 with ease and now I can cold boot in less than 8 seconds.
The only caveat that I have about this machine is the clickpad. The clickpad is not very precise, but is fine for general use. The trackpoint is always there also for when you are frustrated with the clickpad. But this really doesn't bother me much since I hate clickpads and always use a mouse anyway.
tldr: Great computer, great price, great compatibility, okay clickpad"

A6 Processor is a dud

Date:September 19, 2014
"I'm generally quite a fan of Lenovo products; I've always recommended them to friends and family, and haven't hesitated to buy them for myself when I needed a Windows PC.
Unfortunately, the E545, with the AMD A6 & 4GB RAM, just isn't up to the simple task of being a simple computer for my grandmother's use.
My grandmother uses her computer once or twice per week to access AOL, and because of this I thought that a lower-end Thinkpad would be a perfect fit. Perhaps I've just become spoiled with high end processors, lots of RAM, or solid state drives, but I've found this computer to be extremely sluggish on startup, and generally under-responsive once loaded into the Windows environment.
What went wrong, Lenovo?"

E545

Date:September 13, 2014
"So far, though I have not owned it long, it has been a very good purchase. Software wise, mine came with Windows 7 Professional installed, but with Windows 8 disks in the box, should I choose to change OS to the latest. Hardware, it has an excelent processor. At 4Gb RAM, it could stand an upgrade, but even out of the box it is sufficeint for my needs. My only gripe is that it came from the factory with none of the standard windows games, such as solitaire or spider solitaire to pass the time with, while other processes are run in the background, and all the function keys are set up with direct controls that are not what I would have chossen for myself. Still as a buisiness machine and a general purpose machine, it is definatley above average, and well above average for it's price."
