    I had a Lenovo in the past so I loved it so it was a brainer when I wanted to purchase another one. The performance when it came to my DJ software was terrible. the Lenovo T410 with the DJ software running was using only 1% to 5% processor recourses. This one was up to 80%. I got many video card errors memory errors. Called Lenovo and they told me it was all driver issues and to use older drivers. I tried that foe a week but still had too many issues. Had to bail out... I don't understand how a i5 laptop from 5+ years ago can out preform a laptop with a i7 6 gen processor?

    Amazing experience with Lenovo Edge 2

    Posted .

    Hi, we purchased Lenovo Edge 2 laptop two week back and we are extremely happy with the purchase. Its really an amazing experience especially tablet mode switch. Laptop is very fast with great features (i7, 8gb, 1tb). good for programing. Only minor flaw is battery life and its little slow with the updates. This is highly recommended.

    flimsy, even with delicate handling.

    Posted .

    I bought this Lenovo after seeing a similarly-equipped HP for a few dollars more. This computer had problems with the screen from the moment I took it out of the box. The touch screen went haywire as if somebody was standing behind me poking the screen repeatedly in random places, which made it unusable until the touchscreen was disabled in the software, defeating the whole purpose of getting a touch-screen PC in the first place. The whole screen eventually broke near the hinge from simply being opened and closed and never being carried around in a backpack or being dropped. I would steer clear of this laptop. There is a serious design flaw in the construction of the touch screen. It's flimsy and, even if you don't take it off of your desk for any reason, seems to be unable to handle simple opening and closing of the cover.

    Very poor build quality

    After less than 4 months the hinge broke and the rubber around the edge is coming off. Lenovo's response is to question if I have broken it. I will now return to Best Buy

    Great computer, drivers can use some work

    |
    Posted .

    Overall, this is a great computer and I have been using it consistently for about 2 months now. Pros: the hardware is great so far - I love that this computer has a number pad, and that the screen can rotate 360 degrees (although I don't see myself using this too often). The touchscreen works great, the screen and pixel quality are excellent. The keyboard and the multi-touch keypad work very well. The operating system is very fast and the computer has a great amount of hard drive space. This computer has all the specs I wanted in a computer with the exception of an 8 GB SSD. I was also impressed with how thin the computer is overall. Cons: I don't have too many cons for this computer, but there are a couple of them. I don't necessarily think this is due to any hardware issues, mainly Windows 10 and driver issues. Initially I had issues with my wi-fi card and my Intel HD graphics card. The wi-fi would cut out randomly and the graphics card would too (although it would recover by itself). After some investigation I found that the drivers on Lenovo's website are not the most up to date drivers. The drivers they had were from when Windows 10 was initially released. I found more updated drivers here for the wi-fi card: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/86068/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-8260 and here for the graphics card: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25484/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-. If you go to either of these websites, I would look for an even more updated driver. I have not had the issue after updating these two drivers. So in summary, this is a great computer, but the drivers could be updated. For someone else having an issue with this computer, I would suggest trying updating the drivers first before just assuming it is the computer itself.

    Fantastic Quality and Speed, Terrible Drivers

    Posted .

    The laptop itself seems to be very well made. It has kind of a brushed finish that looks nice, but somewhat attracts fingerprints. The display is nice, but can be somewhat dim meaning you'll probably find yourself turning it up frequently. The keyboard especially feels great when typing, and it has a number pad to the right which is handy. Performance wise, it doesn't disappoint (even with all of the bloatware that's found in the default install). It's snappy, and thanks to the discrete GeForce 940m graphics can actually handle some gaming, just don't expect desktop quality. For example, I can run World of Warcraft on almost full ultra settings at 1366x768 and easily get 60 fps. Also thanks to the discrete graphics comes shorter battery life compared to other skylake notebooks with integrated chips when it kicks in. If you're sticking to basic web browsing and productivity work it doesn't seem like there is much difference in terms of battery life, but if that's all you're using this for you'd probably still be better off going with one of the cheaper i5 notebooks instead, since you won't notice any significant difference in performance anyways. Now for the bad. This model comes with a 5400rpm 1tb disk drive. No biggie I thought, I've got a spare ssd to put in it. The process is simple, just unscrew all the screws from the bottom cover, no need to remove footpads or anything like that, and the cover comes off very easily. Just take care with the screws on the front edge, as they're at an angle and seem like they'd be easier to strip. With that said and done, installing a fresh copy of Windows was easy enough, until it came time to actually use it. Wifi wasn't recognized initially, and even the ethernet seems kind of iffy without installing drivers. And the drivers from Lenovo's site are awful. I was unable to use them at all, as even after installation wifi would hang and then disconnect. Instead I had success by installing drivers for the intel wireless ac 8260 chipset found here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/86068/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-8260 There also seems to be a problem with nvidia geforce experience missing a .dll that I still need to resolve, but it doesn't seem to impact performance at all. TL,DR: Great laptop, not so great hard disk and drivers. With a bit of work it's a great machine and I would definitely recommend it.

    You can make this laptop great again

    Posted .

    I've experienced why this laptop received some poor reviews. However it's possible to make this a very good machine. A few things: BIOS. Absolutely update to the latest BIOS. As of now the latest was released 4/26/2016. Intel HD 520 Display driver. Use the driver located on the Lenovo support page for this laptop. http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Edge-Series-Laptops/edge-2-1580?tabName=Downloads&linkTrack=Mast:SubNav:Support:Drivers%20and%20Software|Drivers%20and%20Software&beta=false Doing the two things above will solve the sleep/wakeup problems. Mine has worked flawlessly after doing this. For the 940m Nvidia card, I just use the latest drivers from Nvidia. WiFi drivers. Use the latest drivers from Intel's web site. You may want them pre-downloaded before updating to the latest version of Windows 10 because you will lose WiFi. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25833/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows-10?product=86068 The 5400 RPM stock hard drive is a joke. completely ruins the experience of what should be a fairly speedy machine. A SSD is a must. This laptop deserves a solid state drive. It's the most dramatic improvement in performance you can make. You can get a 480GB SSD for about $100 these days. This particular Synaptics trackpad seems be fairly common across a wide range of laptop brands. The size and feel isn't my favorite, but it is very customizable. I lowered the sensitivity of mine a lot. If you find this on sale for a very good price, or find a great open box deal then it's worth it. Simply because (in my mind) you need to factor in the cost of buying a SSD.

    So far so good

    I am currently an architecture student in the Masters program and got this computer to get me through my last semester of college. So far it has had enough computing power to keep up with my needs, although there is a significant lag if I have rhino and autocad open at the same time. However, I love the touch screen. Still trying to figure out how to use it with photoshop though. My only complaint is that my graphics card has given out on my two times already, and I've only had it a month. Both times I was doing minimal tasks on the computer that shouldn't have overwhelmed it. Hopefully, updating the graphics card fixes the issue.

    Had to exchange for a diff model because glitches.

    |
    Posted .

    I picked this model out because it looked super sleek and the specs were pretty good. I wanted a different model but it was a bit more expensive than this one so I settled on this one. I got it home and excitedly turned it on. The first thing I see when Windows started up, before it is even fully set up, is an error message. It was a memory read error "memory cannot be read". I was able to skip passed the error message and the laptop seemed to work okay for the rest of the night. Then the next night when I went to open it, there was something wrong with the touch screen. I could see all of the little circles that you normally would see under your finger after you touch the touchscreen. It was like rapid fire registering false touches all over the screen so fast that I couldn't use the touchpad to select anything else to restart the pc. So I had to force shutdown with the power button, and the issue went away again until the final straw. I went to shut down the pc on the fifth night of ownership and all seemed well until about 20 seconds after I shut the case. Then something caused the fans to start pushing on overload, which caused me to open it back up and see whats happening. This time I wasn't able to use the keyboard to login. Keys were registering, but the password wasn't right and I realized it was a keyboard problem because even when I pressed backspace, or shift, it placed a circle in the password box like I entered a regular character. I ended up logging in with the touch screen keyboard and testing the keyboard in notepad. Every key on the keyboard was outputting a '6', even keys that were just for functions. The PC was completely on the fritz, like there was some sort of corruption or a short somewhere because the fan continued to whirl as fast as it could and the battery was constantly reporting 100% even while unplugged for a while. Also the trackpad wasn't working. I was able to shut it down but when I brought it back up the same thing happened. Eventually the battery died (even though it still said 100%) and when I recharged it and restarted it, it seemed to be fixed. But at that point I had had enough problems with a brand new laptop so I returned it for the Yoga 14. I was reluctant to swap it for the same brand, but I'm glad I did because this model seems to be much better and works perfectly. Other cons to the device to note: - The trackpads texture seemed to cause high friction on my fingers making it seem harder to use than other laptops. - The switch in the hinge that senses when it's in tablet mode seems buggy. When it was in tablet or tent mode it would frequently ask me if I wanted to switch modes and toggle the trackpad/keyboard. I mostly use it in laptop mode so it was an acceptable problem, but its worth noting. - The trackpad seemed to be to sensitive to register multiple fingers. Like I almost always use 2 fingers for scrolling, but it would frequently bring up the task switching window which was a feature for 3 fingers. Overall the trackpad software just seemed buggy. ---------------------------------------- Obviously I don't recommend this laptop. For the price point there were just too many bugs. It's possible I just had a defective unit which would explain some of the more serious problems, but even without the serious problems it isn't a great device.

    Almost perfect

    I've slowly become a fan of Lenovo. This one has everything I need, and then some. The memory and storage are great, the screen is very clear. I'm not a huge fan of the touchpad, but I have a cordless mouse that works fine, so I use that. The tablet function makes this really easy to use in my classroom. I can take attendance, enter grades, all while I'm walking around the room. The only reason I can't give this 5 stars is the problem I have when the computer goes to sleep or hibernates. It will not wake up. I have to do a hard restart. It seems to be a common problem with this laptop. Other than that, a great computer for the price.

    Good on the go laptop

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this laptop to use for my business for when I go onsite to meet with clients. I do CG/Motion Graphics work and didn't want to carry around a behemoth of a gaming laptop, but still needed something that would be powerful enough to do some 3D animation work. This laptop certainly does the trick and gives me decent rendering and realtime game dev work. The 2 in 1 feature is good for when I need to do a quick presentation work for my clients. Plus being able to draw on the screen with Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop is a plus. I wish I could find a good pressure sensitive stylus that works with this, but it is only a minor issue. The construction of the laptop is solid. A nice aluminum shell. It does not feel cheap. Cons: The pad is a bit too sensitive at times and not responsive enough other times. Most of the time I use a mouse, but if I don't have a mouse, I wind up just tapping the screen rather than use the trackpad. The "fn" is in the same spot as the Windows key on a normal keyboard. Which gets frustrating when trying to use the function keys. Overall a great machine. Not a huge mobile powerhouse, but definitely a good performer where it counts.

    Excellent PC

    Posted .

    Let me preface by saying that as a long time Mac user this is my first PC since switching to Windows. I did some research on the different brands and was satisfied that Lenovo's were of superior build quality before I made the purchase. There are pro's and con's with everything you buy, but the pro's far outweigh the con's enough to rate this 5 stars. The pros; Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB Ram, NVDIA Discrete Graphics Processor, very large hard drive, excellent display, great typing keyboard, backlit keyboard, responsive and smooth multi touch trackpad (while not on par with a MacBook Pro, very close), 2 in 1 touchscreen and tablet mode (although I only use it as a standard laptop I did test the tablet mode and it works great), very fast and responsive system overall with excellent boot times and shutdown times, handles multitasking very well. The cons; not very loud audio, first Windows update crashed the wireless adapter (easy fix with an updated driver though), no three finger swipe to navigate back and forth in web browsers, no hybrid hard drive option. Overall I am very happy with this system. It is very fast, the aluminum body is very sturdy and durable without the fear of denting it like with Mac laptops and for those that complain about Windows 10, I just don't get it. I actually love Windows 10 and I am coming over from Mac. Much more customizable, lightweight, better native App Store and your not locked in to Apple's walled garden that wouldn't play well with my Roku or my Galaxy Note 4 like this Lenovo will. For the price this is a heck of a steal. I spent 4 times this for my last Mac and there is not much difference.

    Decent laptop

    Posted .

    This is a pretty decent laptop. I love that it has an illuminated keyboard. Like many new laptop's today it does not have a memory/HDD access port so you have to remove the entire bottom of the laptop to swap the harddrive if you choose to. Be sure to do some research first as not all SSD's are compatible with this unit as I learned. A samsung EVO does work i can attest to though. The touchscreen is a nice option but this laptop is pretty big so flipping the screen back and using it as a tablet is kind of out of the question I think. Overall I would give this computer a pretty good rating though and would suggest it to others!

    Great laptop in most ways. Only issue was wifi dr

    |
    Posted .

    I like the size of the laptop and the ability to touch the screen rather than move the mouse for everything I need to do. I had a heck of a time getting the wifi set up. I bought the Lenovo and worked with their Help Desk for about an hour to try to get it to work. They concluded that there was a hardware failure. I traded it in and had the same errors, spent an hour with the help desk again and couldn't get it to work. My son looked up the problem and quickly found that the wifi driver was worthless and found instructions for locating and downloading one that would work. I had to buy a cable to connect to the Internet but it worked very well once downloaded. No wifi issues since then. My next challenge is to learn Windows 10... So far I am not a fan. But once I learn it my complaints will be nonexistent.

    Works great, good performance, quality computer

    Posted .

    The computer has good performance in both regular work and games. The processing speed is quick, it's fast to load up, and the touch screen works well. The graphics quality is good and it has no issues running multiple programs at once (word, adobe, excel, internet browsers). The touchpad is super sensitive and the cursor moves really quickly even set on the lowest setting. The power button is in a weird spot (on the side of the computer) and the computer can get shut off easily-- the screen turns off if the button is pushed and takes about 30 or seconds to come back up when the power button is pushed again.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Edge 2. With regard to the screen going dark when you accidentally touch the power button on the side of the device, it sounds like the power button is set up so that if you press it for less than 1 second, your system goes in to hibernation. You can change this function in the control panel. Once in the control panel, in the search window, type "power". Then select "Change What The Power Buttons do". In this menu you can adjust what the power button does. Set it to turn off the device only. This should stop the system going in to hibernation. lenovo

    I purchased the laptop to help with some work that I do, and it has performed very well the processing speed is quite impressive, The screen is quite clear and you really can enjoy watching movies or any kind of video with great quality. Gaming is also great . It is a little bulky in tablet mode when you fold it in half but the sensors on it worked very well I don't quite sensitive. It does have an HDMI slot as well as USB slot, Jack for your headset.but it does not have infrared camera that you will not be able to do the face recognition to unlock.I deafly love this laptop and I think you will as well

    After comparing a dozen laptops in this price range this was the obvious choice. Very good build quality, professional looking. Was surprised that I could play some newer games on med-high settings, many other laptops at this price did not have dedicated video memory. I have experienced some issues with programs lagging when launched but I believe it's a Windows 10 issue. Also be aware that as of right now you cannot upgrade the RAM beyond 8Gb because there is only one memory slot but I have not felt that it was not enough. SSD would be a nice upgrade though. Doesn't get very hot, keyboard has a nice feel.

    I hesitated to put this kind of money into a laptop but my previous one had bit the dust. This was SO new that there wasn't even a model out on the showroom floor. I was told it had come in overnight. I decided to take a chance & am glad I did. There is a learning curve with Windows 10 but so far it seems worth it. The technical support is also great when I got myself stuck. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

    It works well when having multiple browsers tabs open. Edge Browser froze on me on some websites. Started using Chrome and it worked OK. Also the none user serviceable HDD is a Negative. For the price i paid i would have liked 16GB Ram. Also Nvdia error can not connect to update driver is annoying. Will probably have to manually uninstall/reinstall Update software. Touch pad acts a little weird since; buttons are under touch pad. It thinks you are pinching and zooms pages in and out. Probably can be configured better.
