awesome laptop

Date:December 26, 2013
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Weight, Processor, Security Features, Software compatibility, Memory, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Build Quality, Storage, Display performance
Cons: Battery
"I live on my laptop, and I could not ask for better. It runs smoothly and has a great camera and mic. I wish the battery had a little more life in it. I am overall pleased with yet another great device from Lenovo."

Far from best purchase

Date:June 12, 2013
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Screen size
"Lenovo is not IBM.
Pro: Computer runs well, nothing to say about performance. Baterry life is rather on the good side.
Cons: But at this size of a desktop replacment i would have expected the option to get a FULL size keyboard with numpad. The wide pseudo 15inch display is actually very small. If compared to true 15inch display, it would hardly reach 13inches. No external mic jack.
Everything else in not worth mentioning - average.
All in all - would choose something different."

Solid Performer

Date:June 11, 2013
Pros: Battery, Warranty, Included software, Durability, Software compatibility, Memory, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, Build Quality, Storage, Display performance
Cons: Video card, Processor, could use an i7 chip
"I have a student edition L530, a sale through my college, that is running a socket g2 Celeron 1000m instead of the i3 or i5 chip. It runs the same 4gb ddr3 1600 and the same 320gb hard drive as listed. Even with the cheaper processor (1.8ghz dual core 22nm) it is fast and stable, runs win7 and Office `13 with ease. Construction is VERY solid, heavy screen hinges, keyboard feels light to the touch, but keys are smooth when pressed. Speakers have decent sound, positioned in front, below the wrist pad, so setting the unit on a table or stand improves sound quality immensely. Overall, I would recommend this unit to others."

does not work with belkin KVM Pro3

Date:June 4, 2013
Cons: no kvm support
"This is a nice laptop but the fact that it does not work with a KVM switch that has Signal cable extensions makes this a non-starter. I wish I had not bought it because of this."
