    Good Value Laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I initially wanted a budget laptop, but I was thrilled when I got this laptop with all these specs for only 250 (open box+coupons.) My main purpose for this laptop is to be a desktop replacement, so the 17 inch size is great. The latest i3 processor helps me with any school related work. The RAM and hard drive are okay for beginners but I strongly suggest spending the extra $100 on a SSD and RAM. Some cons about this laptop is definitely the battery. Even thoiugh I use it as a desktop, the battery life is really short for a full charge. Having it plugged in is porabbly the best. Also, personally for me, the keyboard feels very uncomfortably towards the number pad. Overall, this laptop is great as a budget, value and entry-level laptop.

    Great Budget Laptop

    Posted .

    Screen and overall build quality is good for the price. My biggest complaint is how sharp the leading edge of the palmrest is, so it can be kind of uncomfortable. Also, the mouse buttons are small and require lots of effort to click, which is annoying. The keyboard isn't quite as good as the one in my other current Lenovo laptop, but that one cost twice as much, so I can't complain - though backlighting would have been appreciated. But overall The Lenovo Ideapad 300-17ISK feels more expensive than it is. Though the omission of a drive activity indicator is silly cost-cutting. The 6th-gen Intel Core i3 processor will be adequate for most users. I use mine for browsing the internet, web development, and streaming videos and music. Battery life isn't wonderful - maybe 3 hours? It has ethernet, VGA, and a DVDRW drive - so for people that aren't ready to give that stuff up, this laptop is a reasonable choice, though I'd personally prefer more than one USB 3.0 port (the other two are USB 2.0) instead of the VGA port. The included 500GB 5400RPM mechanical hard drive should be adequate for casual users, but upgrading to an SSD is going to give you amazing performance. I put in a 120GB SSD, and now boot times are great and applications open instantly. I'd also recommend upgrading the RAM (the Lenovo has two RAM slots - by default it's a single 4GB stick) - you can pick up a second 4GB DDR3L-12800 SO-DIMM for super cheap. Also, while it ships with Win10, it handles Win7 fine, and Lenovo has all the drivers available on their site for 7, if you don't like 10 - you just have to spend the money on a 7 retail license if you don't already have one like I did. Overall, great budget laptop. Would recommend! Just don't try to play games on the Intel HD 520 graphics, because it's not meant for that!

    Overall Good Laptop

    Overall the laptop is a great buy for the money. Before buying this laptop I checked online to see how much the ram could be upgraded to, because 4 gigs sure isn't a lot. I saw that it was up gradable to 8 gigs of dd3, which would be enough for the general use the laptop would get. After purchasing the laptop and the memory upgrade I got home to find that Yes the laptop is upgrade able if you are willing to Open the whole bottom including the keyboard assembly . I made a call to GeekSquad and was told they would not do the upgrade as it would / could void the warranty. I called Lenovo and was told the same thing, that opening the laptop to upgrade it could void the warranty. So be aware if you are buying this model to upgrade the ram you will have to disassemble it.

    The keyboard on this has the perfect travel and click to it. That is what made me think to write this review. This computer is decently fast and has a decently bright screen, and fairly good resolution for the price. I have another 1080p laptop and I can't tell the difference. This handles most multitasking like a charm. It will slow if you are running too many programs simultaneously. But overall good buy.

    For the $279 for which I got this laptop, I have no complaints. It has a big screen, lots of hard drive space and memory that is sufficient for normal day to day browsing needs. The laptop seems decently fast and responsive. For sure the laptop is plasticky and the track pad is not the best (especially the track button, which somehow seem out of place from where my fingers rest). But like I said, at the price I got it, I have no reason to complain. I would need to spend in the $500+ range to get a Non-plasticky laptop, but that's not for me. So for folks on an extreme budget, I would definitely recommend this laptop.

    Sensational value, especially if you can BYO-RAM

    Posted .

    'Bring your own RAM," is what I mean of course :). So yeah, 4GB is a little lower than the industry standard for RAM on laptops, but that didn't stop me, nor should it stop you from buying this computer at this price. Chances are you can easily remove a 4GB chip from an old laptop, or grab one on the interwebs for like $12-15 at most. Fortunately, I had an old 4GB chip to bring to the party, and this laptop's existing 4GB chip only occupies one of two available ports. So two mini-screws and about 60 seconds later - BOOM! I've got 8GB of RAM, and now this thing is really humming. Trust me when I say you really don't need to be a tech expert to do this. If you're feeling richer, you can spend $60-70 on a pair of 8GB RAM chips, and boost the memory to its maximum capacity of 16GB. But for now, I'll take 8GB for free :). Anyway, the intrinsic value of this Lenovo beast is in the processor, and that wonderful 17.3" screen. Yes, it's just an Intel Core i3, but it's a 6th generation i3, so it moves as fast as a lot of 5th generation i5 processors, ones they're still putting in a lot of "new" laptops these days. I'm not into touchscreens on computers, so I don't care that this one isn't. Despite the huge display, it remains thinner and about the same weight as my old 15.6" laptop. So there's the verdict. I'm not saying 4GB RAM is unbearable, especially if your main exploits are web browsing and email. But still, with just a little investment in a RAM upgrade, you can have a pretty serious machine for a really low price. I know there's mixed reviews here, but unless you get a lemon, you can't go wrong with this thing. Mine was $307 in Excellent Certified Open-Box condition. Again, awesome bang for the buck.

    Thought laptop would be like another Lenovo I had but nope after a few weeks of use . Laptop died on me and would come on neither on charger or alone. Took into geek squad and they tried to hard start and nothing and use a different charger. Geek squad couldn't even figure out where battery was located. So laptop was sent out for repairs and needs a part. This almost made me not wanna shop at Best Buy anymore so awaiting laptop to come back and see . Apparently Best Buy policy of 30 days was changed to 14 days . Very furious about that so if laptop isn't up to par I shall be arguing with both Lenovo and Best Buy .

    My Lenovo ideapad 300

    Posted .

    So far so good only had it a short time just over a month. I use it every day for play but mainly for business. The screen is a bit blurry if you turn it just a bit off. And I ended up purchasing a separate mouse for it.. The touch pad drove me crazy it kept scrolling in and out instead of up and down.. But overall not bad for the price I paid. If I would have paid full price or anywhere near it I would have waited for a different laptop .. Take it as you will there are good things and bad.. Definitely not for gaming! But great for Business!

    I purchased this laptop because it was inexpensive, had a Windows OS and I was looking for a large screen. I'm getting older and my eyesight is fading. I was previously using a small 10 inch Chromebook that couldn't do certain things due to the limitations of Chromebooks in general. I specifically got this for its large screen. That said it is big and heavy and if I was lugging it around then it would be an issue worthy of one star deduction. I primarily use this while sitting up in bed for email, browsing and Office thus the weight isn't an issue. That said I haven't had any problems with the laptop since purchasing it nearly 6 months ago. I upgraded the RAM myself to 16GB. That took all of 5 minutes thanks to a Youtube video and $60 for the memory sticks. Literally remove a few screws, pop out the sticks and insert the upgrades then screw down the cover again. Presto. I would recommend this to anyone that needs a sturdy laptop at home and will not be actually carrying it around all day.

    The 4GB memory that is expandable to 16GB, the 17.3" screen, and the 6th generation i3 processor combine to make this laptop a very powerful yet affordable computer that I highly recommend to all users except for gaming. I invested $53 to upgrade the memory from 4GB to 16GB and hence increased its power significantly. The upgrading process was so user-friendly that took me merely four minutes. After one month of using it for my academic work, I found that its reliability, lightweight, and elegant design are attributes that make it a highly recommended computer. There is one thing though that I have not adjusted to yet, the keyboard sometimes freezes and fails to type all the characters.

    The computer was intended to be replacement of my old desktop from 2009. I was puzzled if processor frequency that is less in this laptop would support better productivity that is expected for newer computer. It did. Compare with my previous one productivity is about 5 times better. Most of my favorite applications from older computer are working at this model. Now I have two screens. One of the main reasons to buy this model was VGA output to use my display as second screen. It works. There are some concerns. During several weeks of the usage there were several issues with waking up the computer. Sometime it wakes up too long for comfort. The were a case of forgetting custom setting for screens.

    This laptop was not my original choice, but that computer was out of stock, so I just chose something else in my price range. This is my first experience with a Lenovo, and I have been pleased with this model, so far. My needs are not very demanding - just simple word processing, spreadsheets, Facebook, Netflix, and some online shopping and bill paying. The only complaint is that the left-click key on the mouse pad is a bit stiff.

    Won't find a better price for this much laptop! Enough RAM, great sized screen for student, basic computer usage for work, etc.. Wish it was available in Windows 7 as Windows 10 not quite as streamlined for use. Mouse, keyboard, etc. quite responsive and weight is not too heavy for lap usage.

    I purchased this specifically to sit on a desk for the whole family to use. It works great, it doesn't lag and it does everything we need it to do - which is browse the internet and use Microsoft office apps like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. The screen size is a huge plus. I did upgrade the ram first thing, just to make sure that it did not lag. Overall, good quality, inexpensive product from Lenovo

    The laptop is good for the price point at which I bought it. Being fairly new, it boots quickly and moves as it should early on. My biggest gripe has to be with the mouse pad and it's buttons. For some reason, no matter how much I use it, I find myself zooming instead of left clicking. The track pad is simply too large to be used without looking and the left click just doesn't fall underneath your index finger normally. Combine that with no keyboard backlighting and you're surely to find yourself using it more on a desk or table, than your lap.

    I wanted to purchase a new inexpensive laptop that didn't have too many bloated apps or software. This laptop fit the bill. It struggles with the ram that it comes with. But I upgraded the ram and currently have 12 gigs of ram. It runs really well the sound was phenomenal when I first bought it. But since windows update the sound is horrible. But I've gotten headsets so no problem. Good laptop for basic tasks and I must add watching movies is great. Picture is really good. Worth the money just upgrade your ram and you'll have a good laptop.

    When shopping for the cheapest laptop without skimping on performance, this is the one I ended on. While this laptop may have a small price tag, it slaps away all the competition with the newest 6th Generation Intel i3 processor with a whooping 17" screen. It's build may be plasticky and borderline flimsy, I don't expect much from this price, ESPECIALLY since the specs under the hood are spectacular. All in all, this is an awesome laptop.
