For the price I paid £280 this thing is ideal. Perfect screen size 14 inch is exactly what you need for uni. Extremely light
and fits my bag like a glove. The screen looks good, it won't blow you away, but with the HDMI you can fix yourself to anything (TV, Monitor, Projector).
The keyboard is magical. It's really comfortable.
Good amount of connectivity including USB 3.0 and Bluetooth.
Although from experience I disable Bluetooth in all my laptops because they often interfere with the large quantity of WiFi networks in my flat.
There is no DVD drive, but that's ok. I only use Dropbox and USB drives anyway. There is an option to buy external DVD drives and just plug it to your USB, so it's all good.
The HDD I don't like. The ticking sound can get a bit loud when you are in silent environment and it's nowhere near as fast as the SSD and in my opinion Windows 8 should only be used in SSD environment. I'm going to check if it's possible to do an upgrade and probably going to buy a new 120gb OCZ Agility and put it into my PC and the 60gb from the PC will go into the laptop.
500gb is very large though for this price range.
There is no fan noise, unless I'm streaming HD Netflix onto my TV, but then the TV is much louder so you can't hear it anyway.
I really like the speaker, it's location is under the base and when you listen to it you can't quite figure out where the sound is coming from and the sound is pretty deep for a laptop so listening to music on it is a good experience.
Laptop looks great.Read more ›
The only downside is its a little plasticy feeling, and does flex somewhat. I paid £350 for it so I can't really complain about the feeling. There is also no optical drive so I've had to transfer some apps to USB keys to install them. I also can't burn DVDs or CDs but I rarely do that on my MacPro desktop, so its no great loss as most apps including Windows 8 and Adobe Creative Suite are available as digital downloads.
All in all it looks brilliant, its thin, light and quiet, and I'm really impressed so far.
The laptop itself is nicely designed, something that's pretty rare these days for non-OSX devices. There are no silly 'turn on/off wifi/bluetooth/internet/kettle' buttons thrown across the keyboard, it's all pretty simple and clean. The laptop itself is quite light and thin, there's no need for an optical drive these days so it makes it a lot less bulky too.
The parents-in-law are very pleased with it and I am too. Great buy.
Didn't want to spend more than £300, but wanted a reasonable specification. This fits the bill perfectly, Intel Core i3 and 4GB ram was just right for ever day use.
Used for a couple of months now, battery lasts about over 6 hours on a full charge which is fine for my use.
Bit bigger than anticipated but good 14" screen and windows 8 can't be bad. Bit heavy to rest on your lap but otherwise an excellent all round laptop.
Thought the build quality was excellent, and the red model looks very sleek. Speakers were nice and loud as well. Processor handles everyday tasks and multiple tabs on Chrome but I suspect it would struggle (only Core i3 and 1.4Ghz) if you try to use it for something intensive.
The keyboard was magical, a joy to type on although the palm rests are fingerprint magnets!
Unfortunately had to send mine back as the ticking sound on the HDD was driving me nuts. It was louder than any laptop I've used before. If you can get past that or install an SSD instead (I'm not tech savvy enough to do this and dont know if it voids the warranty), you're getting a real bargain here.
I was also really impressed with the Wireless N. I use BT total broadband and it worked well with the hub. The keyboard is excellent. Far comfier than I expected for the price.
My only criticism is I think it would have been nice if the case had a gloss rather than matt finish. It still looks good but would have looked even better. At the price though i am really knit picking.
Lenovo seem to have made a great laptop at a bargin price, using good quality components in the right places.
