SlightlyFrustrated

Very poor construction quality

Date:May 28, 2014
"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.

Owned Product:1-6 months
Memory:4 GB or more

Keyboard failed and some issues

Date:November 11, 2013
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.
