So Cool!...Great one...It is fast, sturdy and nice to use....I highly recommend this product it was an amazing purchase for somebody who wanted to get a new laptop for school plus still have enough processing speed to be able to run some games smoothly....Really fast cool resolution 4K ,only thing is that when I am on Google chrome sometimes the arrow does not show up, but I hope they fix that little issue sometime near, it only happens sometimes not always...This laptop was actually pointed out to me by the store Geek Squad guy and I must say I am impressed by it is performance.It is light and easy to travel with.Fast and efficient.Yet the screen is larger which is a preference of mine.

Love it...I love it....Sturdy and Reliable...I did a ton of research and the Lenovo Yoga models were getting excellent reviews in comparison to MacBooks at a lower price point, and better overall ratings than the similar Dell 2 in 1 model....I liked the performance offerings in both of these laptops (6th gen i5, 256 SSD, and a 14" 1080p screen) with the Acer being almost $150.00 cheaper than the Yoga it seemed to be the more appealing option....Once it was fixed I told my daughter I would gladly trade my larger Lenovo laptop because this one is so much faster (both have i5 processors, but this one must have the newer, better version).

Good buy...Not bad....Powerful, fast, and sturdy....I bought this for my 13 yr old for school - he absolutely loves this computer - it does not have a small screen like the other ones we looked at had - great sound , it is stylish and not bulky !...The only thing that irritates me is that my fingerprints show up on the top of computer and other places, the material has a texture to it, but for some reason every time you touch it, it leaves your prints....I came across this Dell and an Acer that I was deciding between, and the guy who assisted me at the local Best Buy made my decision real easy - I obviously went with the Dell, and I am SO happy with my decision.Boost your productivity with this Dell Inspiron laptop.

Great buy...Love it...Great product, strong performance and excellent value...came across the Lenovo at best buy, must say could not be happier, great for your day to day tasks and having the ability to use as a tablet makes it all that much better and lets not forget the touch screen, with all such features its a great buy for the price....Having worked with Macs for over 15 years I was a little scared to go for a PC, but my employer uses Lenovo and they are the most resilient machines I have ever seen....This one has a Pentium Dual Core 4405U with hyper threading (makes it appear as two additional cores to run two extra threads), a NON BACKLIT KEYBOARD FRU PART aka Field Replaceable Unit, a touchscreen 1355x768 resolution instead of the 1920x1080 which the northbridge chip built-in to the Pentium 4405U GPU Intel HD 510 can output via the external full size HDMI, along with a generic 500GB slow HDD at 5400rpm with a meager 4GB of memory albeit DDR4.

Good buy...Good deal...The laptop is very light but feels sturdy....Excellent price on this laptop at Best Buy, had the CD/DVD drive that I still need that a lot of laptops do not have now, could stand to have a little faster processor, but overall you cannot argue with what you are getting for the price they have for it....great price, bought this computer for my son who is 9 years old, he really enjoys it, user friendly, excellent for him, he plays lots of simulator games and does his homeowrk on there as well...Went in to bestbuy looking to purchase my daughter a tablet and ended up buying also a laptop for myself works great & love the big screen it has & the fact that I can use it on my wireless wifi

Great find!...love this...Sturdy for a laptop and tablet....I am also finding that it is a little difficult to transition from the apple OS to Microsoft OS and saving and uploading files is driving me a little nuts-hence the 4 stars...The only drawback I have found so far is that the hdmi-c port, for which you must purchase an adapter to hdmi this to a large monitor, is very inconsistent....It is a blessing to get a computer that does not have to have a bunch of junk on it that needs to be removed, or in some cases flattened right out of the box.
Love it...Not bad...Sturdy and easy to use....I am very pleased with my purchase and, having a long and positive history with HP computers, know that it will get me through the rest of my graduate degree....Godd, stable touchscreen laptop - since it comes with W10 installed, it is very easy to set-up from the start - laptop is responsive to the touch and offers several add-ons....The touchpad really demanded a strong, concerted touch, and many times I failed even when trying hard and with focus, and even when trying my fingertip or my finger's pad, and whether or not I changed the touchpad sensitivity to Low or High (in: Windows: Control Panel: Touchpad).Work from anywhere with this HP Pavilion convertible laptop.

Good product...good unit...great laptop, Great construction...Do not expect to run graphic intensive games on it, but after working on the Internet, writing up documents, watching movies, playing a little bit of Solitaire, this laptop can handle itself pretty well in many different scenarios....You do not need a 4K screen in a computer, it is a waste of battery and computer resources, the 1080p screen in this is just fine, besides most people at typical computer viewing distances can not tell the difference between 1080p and 4K....The display resolution is not cutting-edge but it is adequate and was a good choice, I think, for accommodating standard Full-HD images and video without the CPU and battery draining overhead of a higher-resolution display.
Nice PC...Fun to use...Easy to use, sturdy, fast and lightweight....i think the computer is great so far, the only thing I have an issue with is the right shift is in a weird place, I am a college student so it makes it kind of hard when I am typing my papers....I wanted to make sure the computer I purchased would meet my criteria: portable, fast response time, no lag, quiet, lightweight, touch screen, at least 256 gb hard drive, Windows 10, a screen size good enough to work from when travelling, and decent battery life....It is lightweight, the battery lasts a reasonable amount of time, writing is just beautiful since the keys are soft and the touchpad is really good too.
5 stars....Very fast....The Lenovo laptop is a sturdy laptop....It seems (to me at least) that the battery wears down quicker than it should (even with all of the background extras turned off and no gaming going on - just surfing the web or working with Word and Excel)....The backlit keyboard has 3 levels, which is quite handy, and the trackpad is very accurate and responsive ... but, the most impressive thing about this laptop is the battery life....I could care less about people "oogling" it from the seat next to me on a plane (I would rather talk about more meaningful issues if we have to talk at all.) I curl 40 pound weights so whether it weighed 3 pounds or 8 pounds is not a big deal, but I am sure it is important to many that it weighs a half pound less than another competitor.
Very good...Love it...System is fast with strong battery life....But coming from my last laptop which was several years old, was missing keys off the keyboard, speakers you could barely hear, weighed a ton, booted up in about 20 minutes flat, and had the battery of a windup toy, this thing is amazing....Pros: Fast boot up time Surface Pen/Digitizer is amazing and convenient Thin Trackpad is nice (reminds me of the MacBook trackpad) Computer screen resolution is amazing Cons Does not bend back very far Not very durable...The ability to put the screen on backwards and have an angled surface to work on is one of the better features of this unit, I cant stress just how much flexibility you have with the device in comparison to a laptop or a tablet.

A big plus!...Love this...Very durable feeling, high quality construction....The good news is it is easily disabled, which lets me keep a 5-star rating on this laptop (honestly, it's much harder to disable all the information that windows gathers from EVERY windows machine, but I am reviewing this laptop, not Windows)....I felt as if I was Goldilocks searching for the right computer, and I am glad that after purchasing and using one of the Lenovo Yoga 15" models, I opted to return it because of it is known fan-noise issue and purchase this ThinkPad....It is a ThinkPad, it has a pen, it is powered by Wacom, it is touch capable, it folds into a big tablet or as a stand, great keyboard, good memory, solid state, dedicated graphics, resolution good enough without being so great that an external monitor is a pain......Only at Best Buy
Best laptop...Love it!...Strong hardware, good cooling...And the computer is huge good but cannot find a bag to put it in I am still using box to transport from place to place, good piece of equipment but has its issues....Pros: -Fast -Comes with Unlimited XSplit -Not Filled with bloatware -Has a few Enhancing Programs for gaming -Dedicated Record Button -Gaming Key -Surprisingly nice to type on -The fans are beyond quiet and rarely hit audible levels (yes it stays cold to the touch) Cons: -The mouse pad is over to the left of the laptop!...We love this machine so much that we purchased two--one for our daughter who is studying animation and illustration and another for our son who develops websites and programs in various languages as a hobby.

Great Buy...I liked!...Pros: Lightweight, decently powerful for games on low settings, very strong and sturdy, touch screen is impeccable, and the keyboard is very ergonomic....I use this with the surface dock, which works great, but my only complaint and the reason I only give it four stars, is because the scaling on some applications is off when switching between the dock and the native display, which can be frustrating....I intended to connect my gaming mouse and keyboard for typing papers or to play an occasional game but the keyboard/trackpad combo is the closest thing I have felt to perfection in a laptop....Like all new tech it has some issues but anything I have found has been common and nothing drastic plus Microsoft has been working with constant updates to fix all the little issues so I can deal with that.

Very nice...Good laptop....sturdy laptop, great ram and battery life....The i7 processor, dvd drive, HD screen, Bluetooth and last but not least the backlight keyboard... It is the small things that pleased me and for it to be Starwars special edition was a bonus!...Ive seen a lot of people talk about switching out the internal hd for a faster one but this one seems fine if you dont have to have the fastest everything....This may laptop may not have the highest specs available, but it is a great Special Edition Laptop with specs that are good enough for about everything you would want to do.
