4 GBs of additional memory makes this the best equipped laptop I have owned. It comes without much bloatware but with some useful apps. The 7200 RPM 500GB HD, Windows 7 Prof 64-bit, the Intel I5 processor and the built-in Bluetooth make this the best value I could find for the price I paid. Use of the F9 key for quickly turning BlueTooth on/off is very convenient. So far the only feature I really find wanting is... no lights to show HDD activity as also the keyboard status. Another minor annoyance is the positioning and size of Insert/Delete/Home/End keys. The battery life is quite adequate. Had some problem with the FastBoot incompatibility with Norton which Lenovo seems to have resolved with a new release of the software.

I bought this product for my business and personal use. Good display, Good performance, Comfortable keyboard etc are admirable. It seems, it's sensible to shake and freezes for a second while playing a video. No other negative feel I got till date.

The only thing I have a problem with is the key board having Double Right & Left Mouse click on the keyboard, the upper one gets in the way of the Space Bar when keyboarding (typing). Other than that it's GREAT.

So far I'm impressed with its performance and build quality. Not so impressed with battery life (~5 hrs) and the screen resolution (1366x768). Works for me as a budget personal/business-use laptop. Chose Lenovo because of their solid reputation building rock-solid machines.

My first non-Mac computer. I found the software to be as intuitive as my old Mac. The hardware feels solid and is responsive and very functional. I am pleased with the value of this laptop. I am also happy to be able to access so many more applications.

I bought this laptop primarily for work/educational purposes as me and my wife were planning to learn some new Computer technology for our careers. Honestly, at first use, the laptop is not as quick as I expected it to be. I haven't had the time to use it to its full potential yet. But, I am sure it can be tweaked or setup to match its specs. I am probably going to need a RAM upgrade sometime and then it should make a world of difference. The laptop itself is pleasant to use and has got anti-glare screen which is easy on the eyes. There could have been more resolution settings that what is currently provided, but for daily use, the default would prove untiring to the eyes. Keyboard is good and the keys could have been placed a little closer to each other. Still not bad though. The function keys feel a little tiny and so would be the Page up/Down keys. Sound is pretty loud but pretty hollow as this a economy laptop, not a high-end one. So, that should be acceptable. I have watched a couple of movies on Youtube, etc and did not have any trouble hearing any sound/dialogues. And, this machine does not get hot, at least around the keyboard area and its feels a little sleek for a 15.6" size. I know there are other thin machines, but will have to shell out $400 extra for them and its not worth it unless you travel a lot with your laptop. There is a lot of plastic feel to the laptop and that is probably to cut down the price. Haven't had any problems so far. Overall, a good value for the money. Nothing fancy about it. A simple machine that serves the purpose without breaking your bank.

Couldn't be happier with Abes. I got the memory upgraded to 8GB and this machine flies.. Only issue I had during setup is the bluetooth.. I had trouble getting a bluetooth mouse to connect.. The problem was the radio wasnt turned on solved by pressing F9.Great keyboard great screen and looks sharp. Quality build
