    Slow

    It looks perfect and as needed but slow. The ram is so small and makes the machine slow

    Much better out there for the money

    Posted .

    You need to be aware of what you're buying when you pick this laptop up. Windows 10 Home 64bit requires a minimum of 2 GB of RAM, 20 GB disk space, and a 1GHz processor. This laptop just barley meets those so you should expect performance in-line with that. With three tabs open in Edge, One playing a youtube video, one being this review and one being a bing search I am running at 100% CPU and 94% RAM. A Chromebook with the same or similar specs will do circles around this laptop, plain and simple. However, if you want a Windows 10 laptop then look elsewhere. You will find much better for just a little bit more money. All that being said, this is a direct competitor to Chromebooks, but like I said above, A Chromebook will do circles around it. Yes, this does run Windows 10, however with the specs do NOT expect to do anything more than run one or two tabs in Edge. If you buy this laptop and expect anything more than that then you're in for a bad time.

      This system uses Windows 10 32-bit version as its operating system. The amount of RAM necessary to run Windows 10 32-bit version is 1GB. This is an entry level system meant for light use. It comes with 1-year free of Microsoft Office 365, a $69.00 value. This is a great value for an entry level computer. lenovo

    But I did it anyway and it fits our needs just fine. Nothing crazy here, but if you just need to surf the web, etc, this machine gets it done. The one thing that did impress me is the battery life.

    Great Laptop

    Posted .

    32GB emmc SSD is fast. Shuts down and starts up quick. Plenty of real estate with the 14" glossy HD screen. Expandable micro sd memory slot makes it easy to add extra memory. 1 usb 3.0 port adjacent to a full HDMI out which is great to connect to my tv and stream SlingTV. 2 usb 2.0s on the other side. Very fast wifi ac connectivity (backwards compatible as well). 720p webcam. 1 year office included. All in all they got it right with this one. Great value here if you are looking to do basic tasks like browse, office and stream HD content then this is a great value. Very pleased. Battery life is about 9 hours on 70% brightness. Charges very quickly as well. Keyboard is smooth. No touchscreen, but hey even the most high end MacBook Pro doesn't even have one, and for someone who just converted from mac to pc, this little beauty has allowed me to do everything I need with minimal cost. like the Honda of laptops. get it. you will love if you just need a basic laptop. Also, trackpad is fairly responsive. It's not like a mbp mousepad, but for the money saved versus that, I'll take this option all day, every day. Not only is it a great budget laptop, but it is just a great laptop. The blue is nice, too, and the hinges are sturdy so the screen doesn't wobble back and forth when typing. Solid, Quality construction. I really hope it lasts a very long time.

    Not for heavy users

    Posted .

    I was looking for a low-budget lightweight laptop for travel so I wouldn’t have to lug around my larger system. The pros of this machine are definitely its weight, battery life, price, and value. That’s what did it for me. For around $200, you get a full-sized system with a 14” screen and a laptop that is unbelievably lightweight. I carried it in my messenger bag and found myself constantly checking my bag to see if I had forgotten my laptop. I could even carry it in my handbag without hassle. The battery life is similarly shocking. I put this system through its paces, pushing its cpu and memory capacity almost to its maximum (90-100% of capacity for both), and still was able to get a full 12 hours of battery life. If you decide to go with this, you can easily get through a full day of working without having to carry around a power cord. That is what I call value! Now for the downside: sore points for me were definitely the typing experience, unresponsiveness, slow computing speed, and video lag. I absolutely hated the typing experience. I’m a pretty avid computer user and have never once had an issue when typing on a desktop or laptop computer. However, with this thing, I had to be careful to use extra force when pressing each key just to type accurately. If you planned to use this system mainly for typing or composing documents, be forewarned, it will slow down your typing speed tremendously! Along similar lines, is the unresponsiveness of the trackpad. Good lord, this trackpad stinks to the high heavens. No matter how many times, I pressed the mouse or tried to navigate, I would literally have to give the machine a “warning” click before I actually tried to click on something for real. Ya know…just so it would know that I wasn’t kidding! So annoying. As if those things weren’t bad enough, the computing speed in general is bad. I tried using internet explorer, chrome, and firefox browsers. The computing speed crawled or stopped altogether for each brower. This was most pronounced whenever I had multiple tabs open. But even with a single tab, if the website was graphics-heavy, the computer took a while to load the site and would easily become unresponsive. Don’t even think about doing something else in the background, like taking notes about the stuff you’re looking up online. The video streaming experience was particularly painful. I tried to play Netflix while I surfed the net, and it became impossible. The video kept lagging or freezing altogether. It only played smoothly when there was a single browser, with a single tab open. Opening any other programs always ended with the browser freezing. While this system does offer a lot of value for its price, this is only true for light users. That is those who plan to use the system mainly offline for light typing and record keeping, or online for checking email and VERY light browsing. If you are a heavy computer or internet user—you regularly stream video or music, use multiple browser tabs at a time, you commonly have two or more software programs running at one time, you do a lot of data entry, or you are not an aggressive typer—DO NOT GET THIS SYSTEM! It will likely frustrate you to no end. Trust me, I didn’t want to believe the warnings either, especially when you consider the price and value. But the fact is: if these latter features are what’s most important to you, this system won’t really add value to you at all. Prioritize and reconsider.

    Excellent buy for the price and the quality

    |
    Posted .

    I set up the computer yesterday, for someone who is not very computer literate. I was very impressed that it didn't have anything unnecessary I can remember that had to be removed "to clean it up". I used it yesterday to surf the web and watch several programs on Netflix. I had to add the Opera browser program for Netflix to work fluidly, but that has been the case on every computer I've purchased in the last couple of years. For the price we paid, you can't beat it for the quality of this computer. Please note, it has a solid-state hard drive listed at 32gb, so if you plan to add a lot to the computer, you will need a micro memory card. or a flash/thumb drive. My partner used the computer for the first time last night and considering how little experience he has with computers, he did quite well, so that says a lot for the machine. Conclusion, if you are looking for a great starter laptop for someone or travel a lot and you want a laptop that is lightweight with what appears to be excellent battery life and does everything you might need to do, this is definitely worth it!

    Good, simple laptop

    Posted .

    I bought this laptop for my mom who is 77. She primarily uses it to check emails, social media and for online bill pay. She seems very happy with it and has not had any problems getting used to the setup, software, etc. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is that right out of the box I had to install a Windows update which took about three hours to complete. It was incredibly annoying. But, that is more of a dissatisfaction with Microsoft than with the actual laptop. Mom says that it is really fast and she is very pleased with the performance. I am not sure how this would do for heavy use, like for gaming or for college students, but for a basic light-use laptop it's super. The price point was excellent as well.

    Super light win 10 Pc

    |
    Posted .

    Windows 10 for price of Chromebook​. Just need to be smart about storage space. 32 gigs used to be a lot. Using cloud or network wifi drive takes care of that. Clean up windows after windows update after all update s gets 10 gigs back. No DVD but has USB for external if drive if needed. Software recovery is easy so if you store data off of laptop you can restore it at will to a brand new state. I've done this three times. I did not like the way I set it up trying to get used to windows 10. 14 inch screen is good. But it is small resulution wise 720p equivalent. So some web pages you need to scroll more. Watching Netflixs is ok. Speakers are quite. Head phone jack is available. Great for email. Facebook and even YouTube. Just need to be patient only do one thing at a time. Battery life is 10 hours with the right settings so you can surf all day charge at night. You can not increase system memory it is built in to the motherboard. The storage space can upgraded with m.2 hard drive. Not sure if Lenovo will void my warranty but it can be done if you what to but more money into the laptop. You can always move it to you new one of you still have low read write time on it. It also has micro SD so if you just want quick and easy storage that is out of sight once it is pushed in. I recommend Microsoft mouse vs Logitech less drivers to load . Fun little toy. The 360 office trial is great but if you all ready have 360 you can contact Microsoft. They extended the time of my contract to compensate. Very happy overall. As long as you have a realistic expectation for this laptop you will not be disappointed.

    Great Computer for Basic or Specific Needs

    |
    Posted .

    This is a great computer if you only need something for surfing the web, or a laptop on the go. I use mine for writing, and it has been great. It is lightweight and cheap enough to where it wouldn't be a catastrophe if something happened to it. However, you HAVE to use this computer with an external hard drive. It has 32 GB of space (smaller than a phone or tablet in some cases), and that storage goes fast. I downloaded my writing software directly onto the computer hard drive, and it has used up half of the space. I will not download anything else onto it because I do not want the speed to decrease to zero. Anyway, great for surfing the web, basic use, or in my case, specific writing needs.

    Very good ultraportable laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I needed an ultraportable laptop to take with me during quick trips I take on the road. Previous, I had to lug around my supersize laptop which became a hassle when I travel for 1-2 day trips. This laptop fits the bill. It’s lightweight, has solid speed, and good enough memory to handle the tasks I need which are pretty much Office and Internet access. I wish it had more storage but most of my files are on the cloud and I carry around a jump drive when I travel for larger files that I may need. So that’s not that big of an issue. Also, they threw in a year’s subscription of Office for free! That made this a great deal.

    Not recommend for one's only PC. But to grab and go to check google apps, stream 1080P to a TV (better than a chromecast) or great battery life for videos or take to a meeting. Recommend a better machine to doing anything more than music/videos/web browsing

    Basic compact PC

    I purchased this laptop for the a few sir rent reasons. Price, compact, and no moving parts as far as the HD goes. I needed something that was light to carry in my bag pack and yet a decent screen size, this budget friendly laptop fit the bill! The specs I can't complain about since I knew what I was getting, so I'm happy with them. If your just needing something basic for email and web browsing then you can not go wrong with this purchase. The boot up time is fast and the processor is fine for basic tasks. I would recommend it to anyone who looking for just that.

    I bought this for my boyfriend who uses it primarily for social media to stay in touch with out-of-state friends. He also uses it to surf the net for his business. He is a newbie to the computer world, and he doesn't need to save a lot of data, so this Lenovo fits his needs perfectly. After a year of moderate use, we have had no problems with it whatsoever. I'm thinking about getting one for my mom for Christmas!
