    This computer exceeded all my expectations for the price. I thought I was going to get a low end bad computer and instead I got a very nice computer for the price.

    I was looking for a new computer, and found a few with the Lenovo name on them. I was not familiar with the Lenovo brand, but a few people in the store assured me Lenovo was a reliable brand. 6 years later, I'm still using it, I've done a Windows update on it, and that's about it. Back then I might have hesitated to buy Lenovo, but not today. Highly recommended.

    Bought this computer on black Frida for my parents . Out of the box it is well packaged with an optical mouse and a standard keyboard. Power cord is included , but no vga cable , you will need your old or new one to attach to your existing monitor. Startup is simple , internet could be via your RJ6 cable from your router or it has a built in wifi . I use the hardwire method and it recognized my router without my intervention. I removed the trial version of antivirus software and download free avg antivirus. Found a few other bloat ware and removed those also. The CD burner software works great and is simple to use. This is my first Lenovo computer, but certainly not my first computer.. I am impressed by this simple and quite machine which replaced a built HP gaming computer. My parents are in their 60's and and fairly new to computers , but are confident in using this computer.

    Nice performance in a small package

    I was looking for a computer for my two boys to do homework on, I needed my computer back. I saw this Lenovo and the specs looked perfect for what I needed and the price was very good. I was a little skeptical because of the low price but once I set it up (a snap to do) it ran great. The system was quiet and it came with Windows 8.1 and the boys love it. It is perfect for them to do homework, surf, email, watch videos, and minor gaming. I wouldn't recommend it for power gaming or heavy graphics programs but that's not what you would buy this computer for.

    Good for basic computing

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this computer for use as a basic computing terminal, i.e. e-mail, youtube, web browsing, HTPC applications, and some media streaming. It excels in nearly all these aspects. The computer can play 1080p video easily, but don't expect to play many games outside of browser based games, however. I was also disappointed this computer did not feature an HDMI output. Keep in mind the proper use cases, and this makes a great inexpensive computer for basic usage.

    good value basic desktop

    Did not need more than basic desktop for Web browsing and occasional office docs. Have Windows 8.1 on laptop and tablet so familiar with how this works and like it. Lenovo easy to set up & connect to router. Came with Office 365 that's also easy to download and setup. Only downside is many passwords, etc. to register Lenovo & Office ... never sure if Office is registered ... ya think those folks at MS could figure easier way.

    My old dinosaur was a old Compaq, was virused, would not boot up anymore and I think the power supply finally died so I bought a Lenovo to use because it is cheaper than Hewlett Packard. I have to get data recovery from my old computer but will just keep data files on a portable hard drive from now on. Lenovo has a lot of preloaded programs some of them are Lenovo's own and I got Microsoft Office Suite 365 and a free Webroot Virus program (as an incentive from Best Buy). It seems fine except I did get malwared before installing the Webroot and Malware bytes with the Trovi thing, but malware bytes took that off and then Webroot found 7 other files it cleaned. I hope Webroot will do better than Norton did. I would have preferred not to have Windows 8, but there is no choice in that, you have to get used to that. If you have Microsoft email once you log into your computer and go to Outlook or hotmail you have to click on sign in and then click on profile and then click on the inbox tab to get into your mail. I don't like doing all that. I am looking for a simplier email alternative. I also had a bad experience with the Cloud and recommend NOT installing that.. It's not Lenovo's fault. Lenovo does come with it's own alternative version of Adobe acrobat called Nitro, I have not used that yet but will probably download the free Adobe software.

    Good tower for the price

    |
    Posted .

    So far so good on this tower. Was a good deal for the price with windows 8 pro 64bit preinstalled. this was an upgrade so not much was a suprise except for the small size of the tower. I was also not to happy to see the power supply was one of HP's famous proprietary models, which means if the power supply goes out I have to order right from hp, instead of going to local pc shop to buy a standard PSU. My hope is that this will last a few years without issue, at which point it will be time for an upgrade again.

    The only really thing so far that concerns me is it doesn't have a fan in the case. I guess if it starts acting up I can always put a fan in it.

    Very good computer for the price

    This is the first Lenovo (IBM) computer that I owned. It does everything that I want it to with ease. One of the best things I like about it is, Lenovo lets you know when ever there is a update to their machine (drivers, software, etc.) For the price, you can not go wrong with it. Great for the average home user, e-mail, web surfing, facebook, etc.

    Great basic computer/ Great Price

    I was looking for a new computer tower for my home and I went to Best Buy, I saw this computer was on sale, so I compare this computer with other Brand with almost the same price, I end up buying this one and so Far I love all the features that come with it, its a little slow, but I guess that could depend on your WiFi speed and also if you are running various app on your windows 8. I never had a Lenovo computer, so Ill give it try . If you want a basic computer and don't want to spend to much money, this is a great buy.

    Great little computer for Windows 8

    |
    Posted .

    While not a powerhouse this fairly small box provides a quiet but nicely powered computing experience. Not quick enough for gaming but for you regular home computing needs this would be a nice addition to you home. Do remember to get a touch screen monitor and get what Windows 8 has to offer in the way it was designed. You can use a mouse with little trouble (and I do sometimes) but once you get used to touch it starts to feel nice. If you are looking for something for the kitchen, family room, or really just about anyplace you want to sometimes have a desktop this would be a great choice.

    I love windows 8. This new computer is used as the family computer, it works great for streaming movies and music, playing video games, and basic Internet usage. Also it was easy to teach my father how to use it, as he is not the best with electronics. Overall a great buy. My only disappointment was that we purchased this particular model because the associate told us we would be able to connect it to a monitor and our hdtv, but what he showed us as the hdmi hook up was only a USB port, but there are other ways to split screens, we will figure it out. Overall a great buy !

    A major Upgrade

    |
    Posted .

    This computer is a vast improvement over our 10 year old computer (with Windows XP). It runs alot quicker, runs quietly, and overall I'm very satisfied with this machine. I was unfamiliar with the "Lenovo' brand, but a number of people in the store assured me, it was superior to other brands on display. It was very easy to set-up and I would highly recommend the Lenovo desktop to anyone.

    Pros- Having the function buttons on top is a nice feature since this is primarily kept on the floor by my feet and it was at a great price. Cons- could be a little faster

    I previously had a HP Windows XP computer that was over 10 years old I needed a new one BADLY. With the help from a very helpful salesman I was able to purchase this computer on sale and it had 3 times the space and memory I had on the previous computer. It is a wonderfully easy and FAST computer. Would highly recommend this to any age group to use.
