"The Fn (Function key) is too far away from the combination buttons. If you set f1-f12 as f1-f12 keys. (not as special hot keys) it's impossible to press frequently used buttons "Home" and "End" with one hand. I prefered it moved to the left of the Right-Alt button or swap it with menu button. also there is no NumLock on the keyboard (which is not unusual) thus make users unable to press combinations that require numpad. If you plan on purchase S300 with Pentium 997 CPU (I purchased this one by mistake.) consider S300 with Celeron 887 CPU instead. (freq vs. VT-x trade off) Mine was repaired once at official services center. the plastic case's hook is badly broken from the repair process and the case hold together with bolts."
"Nice small laptop I came bring around with me. The only problem is the awkward hand rest and the touchpad is kinda small. Overal it's nice. The price should be lowered to at least $300. Then most ppl would buy it"
"I've had this computer for 2-3 weeks now. The camera and speakers on this machine are horrible...I try not to watch videos because I can't stand the sound. Windows 8 is ok once you get the hang of it but by no means is it deal. This machine (like most) comes pre-loaded with a ton of stuff you'll [hopefully] never use (Internet explorer, a TON of Bing applications, and sponsored Lenovo applications. I assume that's to be expected on a Windows machine). I bought this to browse the Internet, send emails, and complete homework (Word/Excel/ect) -- for this purpose this computer is fine. It's lightweight, somewhat attractive, and the battery lasts a few hours. I didn't realize that the entire interior would be black. Overall, it's just 'ok.' You get what you pay for."
"The only real issue I have with this laptop is that one of the USB ports is way to close to the power cord connection. I like how light weight this laptop is and I like the processor. I can run civilization 5 on it just fine, and I can have several programs open and several tabs open on explorer 8 and i don't notice a slowdown on my laptop. I however take windows 8 off and install vista home basic 64.You can't add RAM to this machine because 4 is its max. I also like the placement of the speakers, the speakers are placed at the front of the laptop under the lip. And the spekars are pretty good. I don't use bluetooth. This is a 5 star laptop because of its price/features."
