For the price at 599.99 on 01/02/2014 this is a great deal. You will not find the fast high end 2.4 GHz Intel I7 processor with 8gb of RAM for less. I bought this computer to use for at least 5 years and when comparing products my main requirements were for a fast processor and a decent amount of RAM, the 8gb of RAM is in one slot meaning later on its possible to add another 8gb in the second slot for a maximum of 16gb. My advice is to avoid laptops with slow processors and under 8gb of RAM as they will become obsolete fairly quickly.

While the hardware is great the actual ergonomic design of the case is pretty basic. There is no keyboard back light and the plastic has a rather robust feel about it. The keys feel a bit squashed together as like most modern laptops the full num pad has been added on meaning that the arrow keys, delete key and home/end keys are in a slightly different place, it took me a few documents to fully adjust but its no big deal, the fact that it feels robust means it should last.

I use this mainly for regular web surfing, work stuff and photos/video which it handles smoothly. In terms of gaming the integrated intel 4600 graphics card still runs most games made in 2013 without issues, for example aliens colonial marines is seamless and a fairly recent title.

I give it 5 stars because for the price the hardware is a deal, I'd rather have an average looking laptop that's super fast and will last than a flashy brightly coloured case with a slow running machine inside. In case you are wondering about Lenovo its Chinese company that makes all sorts of electronics from phones to TVs. They acquired IBM's PC division which Is where they got their computer knowledge base from.

Style Name: Intel Core i7 Verified Purchase
This laptop was recommended by my IT man, and have not been disappointed by the choice.
Getting to grips with Windows 8 takes time and patience, but once there, it is a new learning experience
to get hooked on.
As a retired male, wanted a laptop for home use that will last out my days and allow additional memory to be added
as technology moved on, this hopefully will cope with what is expected.
The only downside for me is that the touch pad is very sensitive and takes a lot of getting used too, and the left and right
click buttons have to be pressed harder than normal to get a response. But that could be just me, as probably to used to my old
8 year old previous laptop.
The key pad is well spaced out and the keys curved shape make it easy to use.
Have not had it long enough to make further comment, other than to say that with my limited experience of laptops would
recommend to anyone who asked my advice.

Style Name: Intel Core i7 Verified Purchase
I bought this mainly for the performance and lifetime I would get before it becomes obsolete / outdated etc.

So far I can not fault it. It came with Windows 8.1 pre installed, though there are a number of updates to apply already. Download and installation of which was very rapid.

I have installed my large suite of software with only one compatibility problem which was easily solved with the Windows runtime compatibility wizard.

With the core i7 it is fast and capable, handling everything I have thrown at it. Including some very graphics intensive work my i5 desktop struggles with.

I'm not a gamer but I think it will be very suitable due to it's fast 4 core processor and graphics capability.

The keyboard is positive and easy to use with good substantial feel and feedback. The touch-pad is accurate and responsive, though I bought a Tecknet 2.4 g cordless mouse to use with it as I prefer to use a mouse at the desktop

There is a cooling fan but it is completely silent, I had to look to see if there was one actually fitted.

It took me a while to figure out how to have the number lock enabled at boot, but this seems to be a common problem with all Win 8 / 8.1 laptops.

The case is a nice textured black which I prefer to the shiny piano black on some as it does not mark easily. It is not a flashy case design but neatly understated and practical.
If you are into big named laptops go ahead and pay two to three times the price of this for the same specification capabilities and configuration.

I think it is tremendous value and wholeheartedly recommend it.

Style Name: Intel Core i5 Verified Purchase
As a computer technician i wanted something budget wise i could rely on. I got more than i bargained for with this piece of kit, the specs sheet doesn't do it justice, i will add to here some of the missing bits that should be written in the description.

The Integrated graphics actually use up to 2gb of ram, and after running a few tests, just this 4gb i5 model was enough to play battlefield 4 on moderate to low settings, and COD: Ghosts on max settings with only slight fps drops.

The ram inside this machine is good for moderate to slight heavy use, it seems to have 4 ram slots with a maximum ram amount of 32gb which is more than most people need anyway, but the updated ram might help with a heavy flow game as 4gb is halfed by the graphics card from the off.

And finally the audio quality is actually quite decent, it is loud, crisp, clear, and has that slight touch of bass to stop the sounds from becoming "tinny".
The Keys are perfectly placed and easy to press, plus the "Fn" key is swapped for easier access, you now have keyboard control, for all and to use F1 -F12 you have to hold the Fn (function key).

The only downfall is the touchpad, would be nice to two finger tap for a middle button replacement as a mouse, but i can deal with that, it was a bit slow and unresponsive for me at first, but with some tweaking i managed to get it just how i like it.

All in all this is a great laptop for a budget, and it will keep up with a few of the latest games as well as a load of old games, the connectivity doesn't ever seem to drop from the wifi and i'm yet to find a fault.

Definitely worth a buy.
