    I enjoy this laptop because it had all the features I need and is very user friendly. The icons are eau to understand and I can switch between the programs I need easily. Setup took less time than I expected and I didn't have to get any help from others to complete it. I thought because it has a larger screen it would be heavier and possibly harder to manage, but it is light enough to carry when I need to travel.

    Disappointed

    I got this very excited as I have not had a new laptop in forever, I had high hopes based off the good reviews. I tried watching some movies or playing sound and nothing worked, I tried everything, call lenovo six times only to be transferred each time and told I have to keep telling them the same thing over and over until I gave up. Put back in the mail and never will I try this brand again. The only way sound came out is when I started it up in the setup and the Lenovo lady talked

      We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the initial activation of Windows 10 on your Lenovo IdeaPad L340-17 laptop. Restoring your computer back to original factory settings may correct the issue. If you can no longer boot the computer, this system is equipped with OneKey Recovery System. There is a very small pin hole on the left side of the device, right near the USB-c port on the device. You will need a pin to push this reset button. Plug the device in. Let the battery charge for about 15 minutes. Push the reset button. The system should boot to a choice screen where you can choose "Restore To Factory Default". Select this. It will delete everything from the hard drive except the original factory install of the operating system. You will need to reinstall all programs and files after the reset. If you don't have copies of the files, try to make one before you restore by selecting "Boot to desktop" and trying to back up your files. If the problem persists after the factory reset, we recommend you contact Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686. For 2018, Lenovo retained its place for a second year as the best laptop vendor:

    Not what I expected

    So... despite reading the specs carefully, the laptop is heavier and much larger than I expected. It does not fit in a standard laptop bag. Also, I thought I was getting a better web cam, but was shocked that this one is even worse than my previous laptop. It's not fast and I've already had video issues playing videos I took with my Canon camera (jumpy, jerky). Don't buy this if you can afford something else.

    Great for surfing the web and handling business at home. Not the fastest but definitely not the slowest computer. If you want to use it to game I would personally recommend a gaming laptop but this is a great computer for the price!

    Of all the less expensive laptops, I've found Lenovos to be better than other brands. I usually swap in an SSD. Only gave it 4 stars because one in five had a dead DVD, but Best Buy swapped it with no hassle.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo L340-17 laptop. We are sorry to hear that one of the models you purchased had an issue with the optical drive. This may have been due to a Windows 10 update at initial activation. This can easily be fixed by updating the BIOS files and drivers that support Windows 10 on this device. This system has Lenovo utilities installed to help maintain the health of the device and keep the operating system software up to date. Type "Lenovo Vantage" in the Cortana Search window (if Lenovo Vantage is not installed on your device, you can download the APP and install it now). Select Lenovo Vantage from the list. In the window that opens, click on "Health and Support". In the expanded menu, select "Hardware Scan" In the window that opens, select "Run Quick Tests". This will scan your entire system for errors. Follow any directions that may pop up. If the problem continues after this scan, now click on "System Update". First select Windows update from the menu. Scan your system to be sure you have the latest version of Windows 10. Once that scan is complete, select "Additional Updates". This will scan your device to be sure there are no new BIOS/Driver updates needed. Follow any instructions that may pop up. If the issue still continues after these updates, we recommend you call Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686 for additional help.

    If you are looking for a fast computer, this is not the case. I did not like it at all. And also there is only 2 UBS ports. So if you are using a portable HD + Mouse. Thats it! I guess you can find better laptops for about $500
