Great laptop shame about windows 8,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo Ideapad Z580 15.6 inch laptop - Red (Intel Core i7 3520M 2.9GHz, 8Gb RAM, 750Gb HDD, DVD RW, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
Having read other reviews I agree with what has been said. The laptop is a great bit of kit but Windows 8 is a stinking turkey. Ok so you do get used to it but it is more a case of tolerating it quirks than actually liking it. When first using it I struggled with the wifi and had to remove the pre installed anti virus to get it working. As for the event laptop the screen is nice and bright although can suffer from reflections if placed facing a window. The keyboard is nice although the touch pad is awkward, but it doesn't bother me as I use a proper mouse anyway. The actual spec of the hardware is excellent for the money and I couldn't find another laptop with such a high spec for the money. Overall a great buy but Bill Gates should be carry out some public floggings for the muppets responsible for Windows 8.
