    Just kind of OK

    |
    Posted .

    When I saw this PC, I thought, wow, big screen, lots of power (as described in the ad) NO reviews, but for the $529.00 I thought I'd take the chance if it lived up to the description. Well, it's back in the box despite the price going down by $80.00 and maybe this is why. It's just slow. Getting videos from the web are blurry. And the constant "circle thing that revolves around and around" while you wait for the machine to catch up, eventually freezes the page. If you watch a DVD, you may be OK. It just seems the 17" display just can't handle the chip provided and the resolution suffers. I do a lot of research and rely on websites applications and videos. This machine seemingly cant keep up with multitasking and especially the web. Further, the keyboard is loose, every time you hit a key, it rattles, just kind of flimsy and a little annoying (And that could just be my particular machine and not a mass production thing). Love the no glare screen, and was an very easy setup. I'll still be returning it, despite the price difference. If you're not in a hurry for speed, the big display is good, just think about what you want in a PC.

      This system should be a fast system with its Core I-5 processor and 8GB of RAM. Be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10. There is no need to install Microsoft Office software. The software is already part of the operating system, you just need to activate the software with a purchased product key. If you have installed a copy of Microsoft Office, this is conflicting with the existing copy on the system and this will slow your system down. If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus program, be sure that Windows Defender is turned off and that the trial version of McAfee Anti-Virus software is uninstalled. There can only be one anti-virus program on the system. You may need to restore your system to original factory default settings if any of the programing errors have occurred. You can do that by typing "restore" in the Cortana search window. Just click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your Windows 10 Desktop. Click on "Reset This PC" Then click on "Get Started" and follow the on screen directions to restore to factory defaults. lenovo

    Great for Ubuntu

    Posted .

    Came with Windows 10 Home. I purchased it specifically for an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS install because it looked like it was compatible and would be quite simple. It was both, and I'm a novice with Ubuntu. I planned to swap out the drive and do a clean install on a fresh HDD, but first thought I'd update the Windows drive. After 2-1/2 hours, I gave up on the update. I pulled the drive, put the new one in, and booted from an Ubuntu CD. Everything was seamless and smooth. And fast. Copied all my data and photos over, transferred my Thunderbird files, added some apps and I'm off to the races. I am extremely happy with the speed and performance with Ubuntu. Hats off to Lenovo for making a laptop that will actually accept a *nix OS without having to jump through hoops. Oh, and when I was checking some BIOS (actually UEFI) settings at BB, one of the salespeople looked over my shoulder and asked me if I needed help. When I asked him if I could install Ubuntu on the laptop, he looked at me like I was from another planet and walked away. The only downside to this whole process was having to separate the top and bottom halves of the laptop to swap out the drive. I know this is fairly common these days, but that doesn't make it suck any less. I wish the manufacturers would give us the old 'trap doors' for HDD and RAM access. 14 screws in this one. I'm pretty sure I voided the warranty by doing this, but I can live with that.

    Power and Size

    Posted .

    I have had this for about 4 days. The initial set up was quicker than previous poster said. It only took about 45 minutes to set up everything. This computer is rather quick. Browsing with multiple tabs is flawless and fast. It seems just as fast as my work laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad T470). I am not running everything I do at work, but I have been using Tableau and excel and it works just fine for that. The main issue is that the screen resolution and colors are not that great. Kind of dark with a hint of blue. Could be much better. I don't care to have all the usb, hdmi and power connections on the left of the laptop. I want at least one on the right side. It is rather heavy too, but that is probably due to the size. It is a good price point for a 17 inch lap top. I cannot seem to bring the size of text down under 100% like I can on my work PC. I need everything smaller to run multiple spreadsheets side by side on the screen. If anyone finds that setting, please let me know.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo 320-17IKB Laptop. With regard to reducing the text size, you can reduce text size within Excel. Just move the slider at the bottom right of the spreadsheet to reduce the entire spreadsheet size. You can also reduce the size of all content by right clicking on your Windows 10 desktop. Select "Display Settings" within the window that opens. You can use the slider within the settings window that opens to reduce the size of all objects on your screen. lenovo

    It is still running well. It has a Lenovo part that you can test the computer for it's level of function. There are not many ports for USB though.

    Have had the laptop for over a year; and, at least so far, it has been a stable device. I purchased it to replace a Toshiba laptop that was a number of years old and had crashed due to hard disk problems. Like 17" screens and also the separate 10-key number pad. This one has both. Larger screens give a better work area, and I use the number keypad by touch to enter lots of numeric data for my spreadsheets. I am careful with handling as any system with a standard hard disk can be corrupted with harsh handling -- which is why I usually get lots of use before hard disk problems occur. I would have liked to purchase SSD hard disk, but the size is still too small, and the price is still too high to date. As such, this was the best choice to get a realistic price for a laptop replacement.

    This laptop far exceeded my expectations. Great value for the price. Purchased this computer for my Mom. She enjoys the large screen and 10-keypad when working on accounting spreadsheets. Plenty of memory to keep her programs moving efficiently. The large screen is also handy when she watches Netflix. Battery life is sufficient given the size of the laptop. Do not hesitate to purchase this computer.

    This computer is excellent. It is big enough so I don't have to hunch over like most laptops. It is fast, sharp and clear. The screen is easily cleaned. It is thin, fits right in the bag. Power cord is thinner than all other cords, so if you have multiple computers, you will. It take the wrong cord by accident. Great computer. Great value.
