The material itself might have been a bit more scratch-proof. Despite my best to keep it safe, I got my first small scratch on the second day while taking it off the case.
The hardware set-up is ok. This is definitely not meant to be a multimedia centre, so those gentlemen who complain about not being able to watch, convert, and stream HD movies in real time have probably done the wrong benchmark on the wrong product.
I think the performance of this machine is just OK for what it is meant to do (office work, typing, web browsing, connecting to remote machines, doing some videoconf, etc.)
The user-facing edge of the machine is too sharp, and often hurting the users` arms. Should really have been rounded!
The audio quality of the speakers is just OK.
The built-in microphone is useless (not directional, takes a lot of noise, distant voice). Use a headset.
I agree with all the other users` comments about the choice of Windows preinstalled. The software licenses are unacceptable to me, so it`s similarly unacceptable to preinstall and make me pay for something I am then not legally allowed to use.
The worst thing is the keyboard, though, and my poor rating is part because of that. My expectations from Lenovo are higher.
Laptop manufacturers still struggle after decades of laptop design to understand that one of the most important things in a laptop is the keyboard.
The slightly rounded shape of the keys are good thing. Probably as good, compared to the others, as they claim.Read more ›
Big hard drive capacity (1 Tb)
Good battery life.
Not so good bits....
Not the fastest.
Windows 8 pre--installed. This is pretty standard, but must be one of the worst operating systems for a Laptop or desktop PC.
Much of the pre-installed software eg. McAfee antivirus, is actually a 30 day trial version. Microsoft office is little more than an advert to buy....
Spent ages customising the machine to act the way I wanted. Inhibited automatic updates, Microsoft sign-on etc.. Loaded AVG antivirus, 'Classic Shell', Firefox, Open Office etc... and junked most of the unnecessary "apps" on the start screen.
Now I've got it looking like XP / Win 7. Just what I actually wanted.
So, it's a nice machine, but be prepared for a bit of work (possibly cost) and frustration to set it up the way you really want.
