Best Deal Ever

Date:August 7, 2012
Pros: Bluetooth, Display performance, Battery, Processor, Included software, Memory, Storage, clickpad, dolby home theater, bright display
Cons: gets fingerprints easily, glossy screen, loud keyboard with small backspace key
"I got this laptop from staples for 400 after rebate, (which has since expired). I know alot about computers and knew that I could not find a better deal for the specs. This laptop (3rd gen i5, 8gb ram) starts in 30 sec. It is also very quiet. The trackpad is very customizable. It has a clickpad which has left right click buttons on the bottom, and normal left click everywhere else. The top half-inch doesn't click though. I used the top right corner to create a open new tab button. The multitouch is very good as well as the palm recognition which stops you from moving the cursor while typing. You can get 6.5 hours of battery life if you run it on power saver."

Great laptop

Date:January 2, 2013
Pros: Video card, Build Quality
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software
"Got this laptop with a Geforce GT 635M graphics card which is pretty good for a laptop with this price. The build quality is also quite amazing. It is sleek and simple and the case is mostly made out of aluminum. These two things made this laptop the obvious choice for me and I wasn't disappointed when I got it.
My only major problem with this laptop is the touchpad. Maybe to keep up with the slick design, they decided not to separate the buttons. This is very annoying because the touchpad often detects a finger on one of the buttons which leads to a variety of glitches. Sometimes the pointer doesn't move. Sometimes it triggers random gestures such as zooming text in and out. Perhaps it is something that I'll get used to just like I have to get used to Windows 8."

Good, but battery disappoints

Date:September 7, 2012
Pros: Weight, Screen size, 4 usb ports
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Battery
"I really like the way that this computer looks and feels. It is very light weight and easy to carry around. I have to use this as both my personal and work computer. I take it with me and need to rely on the battery. If you are using the computer on the battery only (even with the settings adjusted to save battery life like dimming the screen) it only lasts about a max of 3 hours. The only other weird thing about this laptop is the keyboard. The right shift key is realy small making it difficult to use. The laptop is extremely fast to me and it even tells you how fast it starts up-- my fastest is 55 seconds!! I am pretty happy with the purchase, but the battery could be better."

super machine at this price

Date:June 17, 2012
"m loving my new purchase. It,s simply brilliant in respect of its dolby home theater, latest graphic card that will fulfill the demand of the latest games. white look is simply superb and what i like is the touchpad giving the feel of the macbook air. so overall this is a great launch from the lenevo side 3rd gen series.
m happy.
