I am typing this on my Lenovo Z580
on 1 May 2013
I am pleased with my new computer but there are a few little niggles... Everybody is complaining about using Windows 8 on a non-touchscreen laptop and I can see why. There is a learning curve-it is new and different, especially for me... it's my first new laptop in nine and a half years and that one had XP! On the whole though, I think I can get used to it, but you do have to be careful to keep in the middle of the touchpad, or you will keep on toggling between screens. I will probably end up getting a mouse, I mostly use it at home anyway. Also, like most screens, you can't really use it in direct light because of glare.
Overall though, the build quality seems good, and I like the feel of the keyboard. The webcam and microphone seem to work well for Skype. It has a good spec for the price, it's fast and it still works after two months!
