    A good netbook with flaws.

    |
    Posted .

    I got this with the intent of using it for taking it around with me to college and for entertainment purposes when I am out and I know I will be bored, here is my review of the product which I eventually returned, reasons why will follow. The Good: it is well constructed despite "only" being plastic, the laptop feels solid in hand and is very lightweight, typing on the keyboard is also a pleasure, with soft and quiet keystrokes this won't be annoying in a quiet setting. The storage while limited to its 32gb internal storage, it can be expanded, I used a 64gb micro sd card without trouble, I even ran World of Warcraft on it via the micro SD card slot but performance as you could expect, was nothing to write home about. The screen is a double edged blade here and so I will talk about the good part of it, it is bright and very crisp. System performance was not laggy, in fact I think Windows and runnign basic applications will feel quicker on this than the "budget" laptops with slower 5,400rpm hard drives, but it is not as fast as a true ssd. The battery is great, full brightness streaming youtube for 3 hours constant drained it to about 55% remaining. The bad: I mentioned the screen being crisp and bright, so why is this a con? Well it is not the sharpness that is a problem but rather the color accuracy, it is bad, I mean really bad. I uploaded two pictures with the Lenovo side by side to some other cheap windows tablet that had superior color reproduction. This was on max brightness, the blacks were washed out and red at times was kind of purple like, while not important for school work, it wade watching movies and videos not as pleasing as it should have been. Also an important thing to note is that the touch pad does NOT support scrolling, as in no multi-touch support, you will have to use the arrow keys or a mouse for that, and this made me not keep the laptop, for me in class to be able to scroll over charts or larger documents, it proved to be too much of a hassle. Verdict: Yes I would recommend it to people looking for a laptop to do less video watching but if you do any media consumption, I will suggest the netbooks of other brands which had better screens and scrolling ability. Again the deal that killed it for me was no scrolling on the touch pad.

    BEST BUY EVER MADE AT BEST BUY!!

    Posted .

    This was a Black Friday special. Pity I could only buy one. Light weight but definitely no lightweight in functionality. Perfect for traveling or when I don't want to lug out my heavy laptop. If there is a drawback, it's the notification at start up of 96% cloud full, but since I have an external memory drive I don't worry about that.

    It was black friday, cold and raining. It was my first time to wait in line during black friday for this item as a gift for my wife. Waited in line 7am in front of best buy and I was 14th in line and got a ticket to buy this item for 99$ :). The laptop does not have that much storage so I don't recommend putting a lot of files or apps. I bought a separate 64gb sd for 15$ for additional capacity. My wife really likes it. It's thin and light and does the basic thing she needs, browsing, watching, and has free ms office for a year.

    Way more than what I expected

    Posted .

    So I picked this up on black Friday weekend and thought, well, lets just give this a try, if I don't like it, I'll just return it... now I'm a long time Lenovo/IBM thinkpad user - those are the professional grade machines that you can toss across the room, and of course can cost over $1000. I have an old Lenovo thinkpad x200 that's been a workhorse for me, and when I got this laptop, I was a bit skeptical that it only had 32 gb of storage and 2gb of ram. But boy was I wrong. This thing actually performs decently well for all the basic things. Web surfing, youtube, transferring files from my camera/phone to my external hard drives... all done with ease. Also that fact that it does not have a mechanical hard drive makes this thing very tough, and it runs nice and cool meaning that the battery life is amazing. Also, it actually has a full working version of windows 10, there is no compromise here, you get the full windows experience - which I was not expecting at all. I looked at my x200 and realized that the operating system really doesn't use that much memory. All the stuff taking space in my hard drive are files that could easily sit on an external hard drive. Or I could just purchase a micro sd card and put it into the built in slot, and bamn, I have storage. I picked up a 200gb micro sd card and it provides more than enough storage to hold pictures, movies etc. And because this is all solid state stuff, I don't have worry about a mechanical hard drive failing. The laptop is completely plastic, but it feels sturdy and the hinges are nice and tight and solid. Plus it's thin and light, and the keyboard, it actually pretty good. It's not a thinkpad keyboard, but it's pretty close...and those of you who know about thinkpads know that their keyboards are second to none. Now this particular model doesn't support two finger touch pad scrolling, which is a bit annoying, but it's a compromise I'm willing to live with given that I got such a good deal on this thing. I was getting ready to dish out hundreds of dollars for a new thinkpad, but I'm super glad that I took a chance on this. The value is incredible. This model is pretty basic, but it does the basics very well. If you need usb 3.0 and Bluetooth, and want 2 finger touchpad scrolling the newer 110s model has it. I'm actually contemplating getting the newer model and keep this as a spare. This is basically a chromebook priced laptop without the chromebook compromises. It's actually a full functioning laptop with a fully functional windows 10 experience. The screen is nice a bright, and does the job. It's not a super high def display, but remember what you're paying for here. For the price, this thing is def worth a look.

    Great "Netbook" Laptop, Great Price Point

    |
    Posted .

    We have had this a month now and I have used it fairly regularly at least once a day. This low end laptop (basically what used to be called a netbook) is quite functional for its intended purpose and great low price point. No gaming, no heavy multi-tasking, etc. If you want to edit documents it works perfect. If you want to surf the web, it is beyond what I expected and has supported well over 8 tabs with two separate windows even (enough to do normal day email, purchase research, kids school research, etc.). Speakers are not a strength but do work okay (recommend headphones). The HDMI interface worked well though we did have to adjust the default resolution to match 1080p (it defaulted to 720p) and was smoothest while ONLY doing a single display to the TV (was a little lagging when doing dual screen or mirrored). Videos play smoothly, but again don't expect multi-tasking. With the very small eMMC (32 GB) expect to use thumb drives, cloud or NAS for files--again this is really a newer concept of a Netbook. Size is great and it is sturdy in construction (I am not worried about breaking it when we take it on a trip--we have already done it once). Complaints: 1) Airplane mode button does not work (though it did have one, which is a plus over other similar products). 2) WiFi does not seem to get full N speeds (max speed we have seen "connected at" is 72 Mbps while other devices are at 300 or 150, etc. Normally (most often) it connects at 65 Mbps. Not sure if this is a defect in our specific unit. It has not been a problem so we will probably not worry about it. 3) Says it comes with 1 year of Office 365, however, there was no insert, etc. so we are still trying to track that down (basically don't count on it at this point is what I would recommend to others). 4) Don't expect web cam to do much--VGA. It does have nice microphone setup though. This wasn't an issue for us as we did NOT expect it (since it spec at 0.3 MP) and was not the intended usage. However, could be an issue for a college/other kid using it. Definitely recommend this product. Hope this was helpful for you!

    Bought as gifts, good basic small laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I bought 2 Lenovos at the Gurnee, IL Best Buy and experienced great service. Both computers were bought as gifts. One gift recipient loves her new Lenovo. It's processing speed is much faster than the tablet she was using and was easy for her son to set up for her. The other recipient lives out of state and brought her Lenovo in to a Best Buy near her for the free set up that I emailed to her. They were reluctant to honor the free set up and wanted to charge her extra for it. They did eventually agree to set her computer up but did not include her 6 months of free WebRoot anti-virus ( they gave her 2 weeks) and did not show her how to operate/ access Windows. She is not sure her Microsoft Windows is working right. They also did not work with her to help upload Microsoft Office, included with the purchase. She does not have internet access at home as she is in a remote area and cannot afford satellite access, She currently uses her cellphone to access the internet at the library and other places that have wifi. I am not sure how the computer is working for her since she is going back to see why the programs were not installed on her computer properly at her local Best Buy.

    What's Not to Love?!!

    |
    Posted .

    Was so happy I picked this up on BlackFriday. Let me start by saying it's not fancy. It's essentially a chromebook on steroids! Not a lot of built-in space, but I knew that ahead of time and got a great deal on a flash drive also on BlackFriday. I don't like to store lots of stuff on the cloud, so a flash drive is a great way to go in terms of being able to swap work and home files. So for browsing the internet, schoolwork and your basics, it's great. All the flexibility and portability of a chromebook, but you get Office365! Actually a really fast boot up too! I'm only sorry I didn't get a second one for the kids. I don't like to share and am debating sizing up to the 14" for me and giving them this one. Debating... lol.

    Got this on Black Friday for $99. It's surprising capable for a $99 laptop. Sure, it's cheap, but it's light and the form factor is great. Performance is mostly OK but will occasionally slow loading intense websites. Keyboard is decent but the display is pretty terrible. It also doesn't support two finger scrolling which is a big bummer. But again, it was $99. All in all, if you're looking for a super affordable laptop for casual use, this will do just fine.

    I purchased this for $99 during the black friday sale this year (2016). Its a great "commuter" laptop. Meaning its lightweight and easy to take when traveling. Ive carried this in my medium tote and Ive carried this in a standard backpack - super lightweight. It takes a minute max to start up. It performs well whenever I run microsoft word and any other application so that's great for when I have to study and have multiple windows open. Ive had this for 2 months now. I don't use this for downloading music or editing movies - that's not what this laptop is made for. It does the job and I'm satisfied.

    Lenovo Flex4

    I was in need of a replacement of a Dell laptop which was poorly designed, but a strong computer. So far this is a light and agile laptop which can double as a tablet. I do use it for business presentations, which works great in "tent" mode. This isn't the fastest or most robust computer, but for the price, it's good. The only thing that I would really appreciate is a better screen. But, I would still recommend this.

    I go this little laptop for a great price on a black Friday Sale. If you have realistic expectations and take price into consideration, it is great. It works nicely for internet and word processing, etc. It is lightweight, has good battery life, and works fine. The screen isn't the best, but it is fine, and it can get bogged down if you try to do too much, but for a nice travel/basic laptop, it is great.

    We purchased two of these as Christmas gifts for the kids and they are working out great. Sturdy construction but yet very lightweight. They use them for surfing the web, completing online homework, and streaming movies and we've had no issues at all. If they had a touchscreen and a network jack port, they are WiFi only, I would give them five (5) stars. Great value so far for the money.

    I purchased this laptop on black friday for $99 for my children. It is an awesome laptop to use for minimum surfing,browsing on the web and streaming. The use it for many educational sites to practice math and seems to work just fine so far. It's small and easy to store and commute with. Not a lot of storage but enough for children. It's a good laptop for short term use.

    Bought this as a 2nd laptop for my wife. Has Windows 10 installed and had a 1 yr subscription to Office 365, which are huge values. The hard drive is small and the screen resolution not the best, but this is more than needed for many uses and we both agree it was an excellent buy for the price ($100 on sale). I met someone shopping for laptops at Target and suggested he go to BestBuy - he did. i would recommend this as a backup laptop, although the small storage necessitates expansion for developers.

    This little sucker is a workhorse. I got this as a Black Friday deal for my daughter as she was tired of lugging around her big laptop. She is very happy with it and now uses it more than her laptop for email, browsing and writing. She is also rough on her electronics and while the cover is scratched up it keeps on ticking.

    This laptop is perfect for kids or beginners. It is small and light. It is perfect for streaming movies, kids games, or educational programs. It doesn't have lots of memory, so you'll have to save your stuff on the cloud or USB. You also can't download tons of apps or use it as a back up, because it doesn't have lots of memory.
