My current nightmare
Date:July 16, 2014
"Bought this laptop and 3 months later the display was a mess .it kept going on and off by itself.at times refusing to switch on for lyk 3 days.took it back cos of the warrantee but 3 weeks later the same occurrence and this kept on until the third time after staying at reddington for a month it came back with the same issues n i have since been struggling for a replacement but they say lenovo replacement takes ayear...I am a disappointed client..never doing a lenovo"
"Lenovo - wants a detailed review but then doesn't provide enough space to let you do so. My first review was complementary .... The laptop performance wise did what I wanted. Does generic school work and streams movies online well. Is small and portable. All that is great PROBLEM - the case is literally tearing itself apart from the right hand screen hinge pushing the laptop apart. It is never been dropped or abused. Yes it has gone to and from school but this appears to be a design defect. I can no longer close the laptop for fear it will completely explode. This is also where the power supply comes in by and is cause for concern. Performance good. Construction quality bad."
Pros: Weight, Screen size, device driver is good and stable, maintenance manual publicly available
Cons: Battery, Software compatibility, Processor, Durability, repair quality is bad in some country (mine), sometime bios update fail. (cause hardware issue), you cant directly contact lenovo engineer, you cant directly suggest change or report issue
"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."
