    Great product for college

    What impressed me the most whole going into best Buy to pickup a laptop for my college student was that I was ready to purchase a model that was not adequate for the level at that particular college. Supervisor "Amanda" could have just sold me what I asked for, but she sensed that I was unaware that I needed a certain level of laptop for what my college student was majoring in, etc. Thus,, she educated me from the former misinformation that I had been given and I was able to make a better purchase. This is quality customer service that will keep me coming back. I was treated with respect and learned something that I was ignorant of and was better off able to help my student. This particular Best Buy store will keep my business.

    Fabulous Deal and I'm a Skeptic

    Posted .

    I went into a local store and received help in finding this laptop. I told him what I was hoping for and asked what products he recommended as a computer specialist. He recommended Lenovo for longevity in parts and quality. The price of this laptop for the value I've received is top notch! The laptop is easy to use, a bit large, but I enjoy the big screen. Transporting it is a bit awkward at times, but that's expected. I haven't found a laptop case large enough for it but I haven't looked very hard. It needs a 17.3 inch case. The 17" doesn't fit. Screen picture is great, keys are quiet. It plays the Sims 3 great. Battery lasts over 4 hours if you are only surfing the web. Less time if you are playing a high activity game such as the Sims. I'm not the biggest fan of Windows 10, but I've gotten used to it. So far the 8GB of memory have worked just fine. I mainly use it to do my school work on and type up documents. Runs like a champ. I still can't get over the price I got it for!

    Great products and I am enjoying the screen size. The mouse is fast and easy to use and I like it's shape in the palm of my hand and I fell secure having the webroot security anywhere subscription that was included with purchase. I included Geedsquad with my purchase and the team set laptop up and is providing great support 24/7!

    Bought this laptop for my student niece but I set it all up and was impressed with the speed and screen resolution/size, yet light weight. It is not meant for heavy computing but sound is very good and loud speed is excellent and the price is just right. Can't go wrong. Also not many pre loaded garbage-ware from Lenovo anymore, thanks for not wasting my time deleting all the junk.

    Good laptop so far

    I've had this for a month and a half and it started a little rocky and almost returned it but it wasn't the computers fault. Microsoft updated a bunch of times and just like my other Asus laptop between some of these updates it was unstable and crashing on chrome when it opened or sometimes wouldn't open, mail wouldn't open or crash. Finally after one of the updates things started working good but you would think they would know how to update computers by now....Even have some photo editing software installed seems to handle it ok. Right now I would recommend this laptop very snappy online and everything is stable.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo IdeaPad 300-17 laptop. With regard to the Windows automatic updates, you may want to turn off automatic updates. That way you will get an alert when there is an update. This will give you time to create a restore point on your computer before you allow the update. That way if the update conflicts with older drivers, you can revert back to the point you created before the update. Microsoft will eventually correct the driver conflicts and you can allow the update at a later date. lenovo

    Just Right For My Needs

    I love my Lenovo ideapad 300. I'm 74 y/o and stay connected with the world through social media. This Lenovo lets me view media with no slowing down. I'm struggling a bit with Windows 10 but made things to act more like my old W7. I'm still trying to find a way to stop Cortana from intruding on my screen when I turn the laptop on. Some changes with Windows 10 are a little too intrusive This laptop is BIG. I can open several window at a time and enjoy interacting while watching live TV. However, I can also watch my TV right on the laptop. A 17.3 inch screen is as large as a TV my family had when I was a kid. My, how things have change. I did not get a touch screen. I'm sure those younger than I and who are working in graphics would find it wonderful.

    Excellent screen offset by a stickly keyboard.

    |
    Posted .

    This is a good mid-range laptop with plenty of speed and storage. The large screen and speakers are of excellent quality and utility. The one "sticking" point is a somewhat spongy and sticky keyboard. I often need to go back and fill in letters that have been missed because the key wasn't perfectly depressed. Still a good value as I expect I will adapt to the keyboard.

    Works well for mom

    This purchase was made to replace all older HP desktop with Windows 7. The thought was to replace it with another HP and we saw one online that was a touch screen but after testing didn't think the HP touch screen was right for my mom, so the comprise of a touch screen was the answer for a larger screen. I had never heard of a Lenova computer, but the sales clerk said it was really no different than the other computers, so that's what we bought and we are very happy with the speed, the mobility and the price.

    Great stationary laptop

    Posted .

    I take a few online courses, had a Mac that was not compatible with my textbook software and decided to purchase this. The sales associate was very helpful and I chose this per his advice. I actually like it better than my Macbook for school work. I strictly use if for school work so that is what my review is based on. Works great with Quickbooks, Excel, Word and Google chrome all open at once. It is quite a large size but it's not an issue for me because I mostly use it at home. Despite the size, I like that it's a laptop because I have the option to take it with me to work or any other location. It has a huge screen which is awesome for me. Overall very great buy.

    Lenovo Thinkpad

    I was hoping it would perform better than my 5 year old laptop which I upgraded to Win 10. I have the same issues with the Lenovo, so must be related to Win 10. The "smart audio" plug does not seem to be very smart. I want to record from an audio mixer and it only recorded from the on-board mic. I have been "playing" with it since and have had it record from the "smart Audio" sometimes and sometimes it won't. Need to get it figured out so I can use it for back up recording from the audio mixer.

    This works fine in a tool rental center.

    Posted .

    This was purchased for use in a tool rental center, which is owned by a friend. Their old laptop was shutting down at random times, even though the fan had been cleaned and nothing was blocking the airflow. The 17.3" screen is easier to view than the old 15.6. The guy who manages that for my friend was able to get the TrendNet (offered by Armstrong) to install, even though there had been some issues with the software and the "anniversary" update for Windows 10.

    Lenovo does a great job setting up this machine for the consumer. It is basically ready to go out of the box. I picked this up on my lunch break and fired it up at home. I only had to type in a few things then left it to configure. It was ready to go before I had to be back at work. This is a great laptop for surfing, playing music or video and work. I feel that it has exceeded my expectations.

    Easy Setup, Very Usable

    |
    Posted .

    Setting up a Windows 10 computer is more involved than Windows 7 was, but the system walks you through it step by step. (Does not tell when you are done, however). This PC is easy to use, everything seems to work well; and there have been no failures of any kind. It takes a little time to get used to smaller letters on the higher resolution screen, but the letters are much clearer and crisper, hence more readable. Having the number pad on the right takes a little getting used to as well, I "paged down" when I wanted to "delete" at first, but I am accustomed to it now.

    I own four of the I3 two gigabytes ram for my teams to do presentations with I wanted to try the faster processor and more gigabyte RAM and it was worth the extra money. I will probably buy 3 more very soon good computer overall love the power cord adapter with a square plug we typically break off the power cord insert off the HP's circuit board and we have yet to do it with these Lenovo . Would have given it 5 stars with a touch screen

    I've owned a lot of computers, of all prices, over the years, but this Lenovo is not only a great buy, but also one of the best computers I've owned. More than enough memory for all your apps and programs, enough RAM for multitasking needs and a processor fast enough for even my gamer son. Probably the best computer buy I've ever made.

    This laptop is really a great machine. It works quickly and has a great viewable area. The fact it has a i5 and a DVD-RW really sets it apart from other laptops that it has everything you could want. I bought this for app development and it works like a dream. A bit heavy but that is to be expected with a 17" laptop that includes a DVD-RW. The only improvement i could say if it had a SSD instead of a HDD then it would have been amazing. But then the price wouldn't been as good so trade offs
