After a few days using this laptop I'm very pleased. I purchased it after lots and lots of research. Reviews from friends tell me Lenovo tend to last a bit longer than other brands on average in terms of build quality and speed, which was important to me given my HP laptop failed after 18 months. It looks great (like a MacBook Pro basically!) and is surprisingly light which will make it easy to take to college when I need to. It doesn't come with a CD/DVD drive to keep the weight light but you can easily pick up an external one for not much money. Others have reported earlier versions of this model to have problems with the wireless - research tells me this is restricted to models manufactured before July 2012, and the one I received was manufactured in December 2012 which worked perfectly out of the box, so I would order from here in confidence. I quite like Windows 8, which comes pre-installed.

The only problems I have had are:

1) trackpad - the 'gesture' function stopped working after I installed Office 2010. This is a known issue with Ideapads that is easily solved by uninstalling the Synaptics driver, which then reinstalls itself (google for more info if this happens to you). Took 2 mins to fix.

2) best not to grab the laptop only by the edges of the screen - the plastic surround could pop out, as it has been designed to be light and keep the weight down. Although why anyone would do that anyway I don't know.

Overall very pleased with this purchase and feel the research was worth it.

A great, budget laptop for people who don't want to spend the equivalent of the national debt for their Windows 8 experience.
It's fast enough and built well.
Would benefit from a ram upgrade, but then all computers would.

If you will update the os to 8.1, you will have some issues with some softwares.
Lenovo should enhance the compatibility with 8.1!
