    Junk

    Posted .

    I am so disappointed in this laptop. It is a piece of junk. Best buy wont let me return it, and offered a $65.00 trade in value. It was a $229.00 computer. It was a Christmas present from 2016. I cannot believe best buy sells this type of junk. I have bought a lot of tvs, computers, speakers etc, I will not shop at best buy again. It's a junk store. This is not the first time I have been totally disappointed with this store, but it is the last.

    Excellent for portable computer

    Posted .

    I was going to purchase this for me, but liked it so much I gave it to my wife and I bought a slightly bigger Lenovo 2-in-1 for myself! The portability is great, as is the ability to make it even smaller when used as a tablet. I would advise anyone who gets one to change the power settings when used on battery power. It loads internet content very slowly on the default settings - makes you think there is something wrong with it (we found this to be true on both sizes of the Lenovo's we have). Once you change the settings, it runs just as well as it does plugged in, which is very well, and the battery life is still awesome (all day). It should say something about this in the user manual because there are a lot of people who will buy these and think 2-in1's are just too slow and take them back without knowing they really aren't.

    Great Small Project Computer

    Posted .

    I have some slight mixed feelings on the product, but I think it is overall able to pass as a recommended product and 3 star rating. (In my opinion!) It does have some speed issues, but it can handle small tasks, one at a time. It does NOT like Google Drive in any way for me. Luckily, my school gives a free copy of Office for students. If it did not, I would be in $200 of trouble. It seems to be great with Office never-the-less. (Probably because it is its own program and does not really require as much computer based processing as Drive does. Not a computer expert, but that is my assumption.) It is light and easy to travel to school. It does run alright when browsing the Internet, but I wouldn't even think of trying to run multiple tabs at once. I would only run multiple tabs if they are pages that can load once and I can let sit. Multiple pages that require some sort of video playing or any flash programs are not even in my realm of consideration to try. Although if you are taking it to school, using Office, and only taking notes/doing light Internet browsing, this really is a pretty good laptop for this. My concern was the speed for the price. I don't know if the $200 I paid was 100% worth every penny. I will keep it, but I want this to be fully noted. I think it barely passes my level of yes to recommendation because it does work nice for basic school things. I would rather use the phrase, Include in IDEAS of Recommendation because I would not explicitly say, "Buy this product!!" I would more or less say, "I have this laptop, it works okay for its purpose. Though, consider others." Pros: Great for notes Great for light web-browsing Light Small and easy to store Large enough to work with (I have large hands, but it doesn't seem to provide problems) Cons: Speed Limited Value/Fair Price (I know it is $200 and not a thousand dollar gaming computer or what have you, but I still think for $200 it could work a little better/faster. Cheap smartphone esq. products/iPods can probably do some of the same things for less in a few instances. Very few... things are so expensive.)

    64 GB Flash Disk was plentiful for OS and more, especially you could add SD (micorSD) of 128 GB, and no rotating Hard disk easier to manage. Convertible to tablet modes, adding some fun. GB Ethernet port is rare for such devices, and USB 3 helps. Dual band WIFI AC is also nice. Obviously only 2GB and Celeron not for heavy multitasking, But for my remote VPN sessions and HD video viewing and HDMI connections to HD monitors, it worked smoothly.

    Lenovo Needs to Work Out Issues

    |
    Posted .

    I have had a number of issues since purchasing this laptop. One of them was the cursor would become erratic when landing on certain pages. After days of researching forums I found out a sound driver needed to be uninstalled and a new one installed to prevent this from happening. People have been complaining about this issue since they purchased this laptop and you would think Lenovo would have fixed it by now. I own four laptops and this is by far the slowest one. I am not sure if it has to do with the fact that it is also Touch at this price point, but I am not happy with the laptop at this time.

    This is a great laptop for college. You can take notes, flip it around to use as a tablet...The webcam is not great, but the computer itself is fine. OneNote is a great tool and I love using it. The solitaire collection that comes standard with the computer is also a nice break during studying.

    Horribly slow

    Posted .

    I tested this touch screen laptop in store and it was very very laggy just doing simple tasks like opening IE and navigating to a website. I was purchasing this laptop for my young niece to use for simple tasks. I asked the Best Buy associate if the actual computer would be this laggy/unresponsive/slow and he said no...that this one was probably messed with and had some SW installed on it that shouldn't have been (spyware/malware, etc). I ended up taking his word for it and purchased the laptop. I took it home to set it up for my niece - install MS office, etc... and it is in fact horrible slow/laggy. I returned it the next day and ended up getting a different computer.

    Very Nice Portable for Traveling

    Posted .

    This is basically a combination of a tablet and a laptop. It certainly isn't the most powerful laptop you can buy. The 2 GB of memory can be a bit of a bottleneck when you're doing updating and the 64 GB of storage forces you to be careful about storing too many items. However, this computer really isn't meant to be your only computer. It is light-weight, small in size, and great for using on the road. It enables you to surf the Internet, read Email, and do most word-processing and spreadsheet tasks. If you're doing heavy-duty document editing or image processing, you probably will want something more powerful. But this machine is a good value for light-duty tasks and traveling. And the touch screen is surprisingly handy.

    I needed a small, light laptop for a long bike trip w limited luggage space, to work on some Word files at night. This turns out to be a surprisingly capable unit for the price.. Great keyboard, touch screen & battery life. Quick start, all solid state, smart tablet mode by flipping the screen 360 degrees. USB 3 plus a live USB port when off..for charging a phone. Handles Word and Excel very well.. I'm using it regulary back at home for routine work.. Didn't expect that. No complaints...Recommended!

    So picking up a budget laptop for a family member I had to forget the spec's. I normally always buy way more product than I need. This time I was smart and got what was necessary to make sure the person was satisfied. Well surprisingly this is a great little laptop for basic tasks and media consumption.

    Great lightweight full functioning Laptop/Tablet

    I purchased this laptop because my previous Acer One 10 tablet had stopped working, and I have to say that I love this one so much more. The 360 degrees compatibility is great, I can switch from note-taking in class to just viewing documents in tablet mode. I would recommend this to any one who wants a lightweight laptop that can still meet all of your needs. Battery life is great as well.

    I bought this netbook so I could work a little while traveling. It's just what I needed, in terms of being small and lightweight, and providing the basic functions that I need. It's not a high end, fast computer - nor does it come with the high price of those systems. It's limited, and a bit slow, but for the price, it's great! Some people mentioned the track pad being touchy, which is true - but all you need to do is go into the settings and calibrate it to your preference. Also, I purchased a small portable trackball to use with my netbook, so with that and my customized settings it's all good..

    Great starter laptop for pre-teens

    I purchased this laptop for my junior high child. The main purpose is so that she can create documents for school and go online. It is not the fastest, but it does serve it's purpose with her. She also really likes the fact that it is touchscreen and she can turn it into a tablet. Definitely worth the value for the price. I'll save the more expensive laptop purchase for high school and college.

    Very usable Laptop

    For the price of this laptop I wasn't really expecting very much but I was pleasantly surprised. The performance lagged a little when loading a new complex web page, it effected the mouse movement - sort of blotchy, but as soon as the page was loaded, that went away. In fact, the performance was so impressive that I decided to try running Adobe Photoshop on it. Much to my surprise it ran impeccably. I decided to keep PS on it. With Photoshop running and web surfing, I never ran into that "close an application because your memory is running low" error message. So I'm quite happy.

    Adequate

    Perfect little laptop for email, browsing, Facebook and the like. Touch screen works well, tent mode and tablet mode also work well. Upside is excellent battery life. Only down side is the processor is over its head with just Win 10, so sometime the mouse is unresponsive and the pointer jerky. So you will wait a few seconds until the processor catches up. Not a laptop for games, rendering video or compiling code that's for sure. It struggles immensely with win10+word+chrome with just the tabs. It is what it is.

    I can see why a child would want this

    I have small hands, but they needed to be smaller to use this keyboard. I spent a great deal of time backspacing and correcting. Also, the computer would "zone out" and be unusable for varying spaces of time, very frustrating when I wanted to take notes in a lecture and it would go to sleep. I generally like Lenovo products, but I think this computer was not for me. I returned it after two days and purchased an HP laptop which has been so far very good.

    Simple touchscreen

    Purchase for my graduating high schooler and just needed something inexpensive. I didn't know it was very basic. I wanted an Hp but she wanted that laptop due to it being a touchscreen. Sonetimes in midstream the laptop with slow down and stall. The battery power isn't great either. While she is working on it she keeps it charging. If she doesn't it will die on her.

    Excellent Basic Laptop-User Friendly

    Posted .

    I purchased this item for my mom after the one she has had for years became obsolete. She was used to Windows, and it is a plus that Office was already on the computer and came with purchase. This is a very user friendly laptop and is easy to understand for people without much computer experience. The touchscreen makes ease of use even better, as it allows her to simply touch what she is trying to do. She also likes the fact that it can turn into a tablet, and has since learned to upload all her pictures and watch movies on it while traveling. I liked it so much while being on it to help her navigate how to use everything that I am considering purchasing one for myself. I also like the flexibility and ease of use this laptop offers for a compact lightweight computer, and was definitely fast enough for everyday use. I would prefer this over an iPad or other tablet any day. For being relatively the same size and weight, having a touch screen, and having the added benefit of a keyboard, USB ports, etc, and other computer functions you just can't get with a tablet you can't beat the price point and versatility.

    Great and lite weight for travel

    So far so good, fast enough for media tasks and word processing. Have not tested for gaming(which it isnt for) yet but if im not mistaken it should run source games(counter strike source, cs:go and such) fine. The battery life is quite great. However, if you're watching series or movies you get about 2-2:30 hours, otherwise you can easily get up to 4-5 hours.
