For the price (£329) I've got to say this is a fantastic laptop. The AMD A4 5000 is pretty much an even match for a standard Intel core i3 and Windows 8 runs very quickly indeed. I upgraded to 8GB RAM before switching it on, and would highly recommend doing so, it's only £25 on Amazon and takes 2 minutes. The touchpad takes a few days to fully wake up so be patient if you think it's being a bit unresponsive the first few times you use it. Great laptop.

Overall I`m happy with the visual appeal of the case. It really looks nite and professional. Very easy opening to add extra RAM, with just two screws behind the battery pack.

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.

This is a nice, basic laptop. No prizes for style, but it does its job well.
Good bits..
Nice keyboard
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.

when i bought this i did lots of research into shops and on-line, but this was the best by far, it just needs a SSD to make it better, You can easily install one yourself to replace the spinning drive, then put the spinning drive into where the DVD player goes. its a little work, but worth it. I haven't started yet but will do this week. Windows 8 is not great with the tiles, only good for touch screen, but when the newer version is out it will bring back the option to have your start button like windows 7, cant wait!!!

If it had come without an operating system It would be perfect. Fortunately I was able to tweak the software the way I wanted so now its the laptop it should be. Its light, fast, upgradable to 16GB RAM (important for gaming) and at this price its a complete bargain. Love Love Love!!!!
