This was purchased for college student who travels extensively with a sports team. Her 17 inch was too large, plus the hard drive crashed after 1 1/2 years (HP). This computer will be great for her, I just had to clean out some of the unnecessary software. A full version of office would have been nice, but I didn't expect that for this price range. Windows 8 is still new to me, but I was able to get it to run more like Windows 7. There is a free program that adds a start button to the lower left side. I think this will be a great machine for her. If not, I'll post that.
I would recommend this to a friend

Love this Lenovo
Love this Lenovo. From the moment I switched it on, I was in love. Great product---keyboard is functional and ergonomically built, not too sensitive and the display is bright, crisp and clear. I bought another brand a few weeks back and had to return it because of a defective keyboard. I should have gotten the Lenovo to begin with. This is the second Lenovo in our family and I don't plan to buy anything else. It was a little pricier than the Asus and the Toshiba that I bought recently, but well worth it. Love it!
