Loving this thing
Some say this has an issue with the fan and claim that is too noisy but thats not true mine is very quiet, doesnt overheats.
keyboard is good not as normal keyboard but you get used too it.
the 6 cell battery is a charm,with low brihtness you can get up to 8 hours.
some key features are 1key recovery,web cam mic,face recognition.
I love lenovo this is my first netbook and im already using it more than my primary laptop (wich is an ideapad y510)its just so easy to get on the web.
It has an quick boot option that puts you on the web or skype or im in less than 30secs, this option is so handy.
overall i recommend this netbook its good on design, price, and performance, i have never had any issue with my other lenovo and this one seems to be good as well.
Great Netbook! Highly Recommend!!!!
I love this thing!
I did have a problem with it staying in sleep mode when I first got it – that is the only reason that it is not getting a 5. I resolved my sleep problems by disabling hibernation (I am sure someone out there will be hunting for a fix – I am not the only one who has had this problem).
The glossy black color is pretty bad with fingerprints.
Glossy screen is a minus in my opinion, but I have not minded it so far. Screen is bright and crisp!
Battery life is awesome.
Touchpad works very well – no problems from me on that.
Keyboard is a little cramped but very usable.
It won’t disappoint!
Owned for 1.5 years now STILL GOING STRONG
My favorite things about it are:
1. battery life (its apprx. 4 hours long- even after 1.5 years of use the battery still functions really well- on normal laptops it gets shot within a few months.
2. One Key Recovery- I had to do an emergency reboot yesterday because some new download software malfunction wouldn’t let me access windows- I was overjoyed to click QS and it started rebooting, it even opened the option of letting me save all my files and programs to a thumb drive first… so I didnt lose any of my things. Super easy and quick reboot. Yay!
3. How lightweight it is. Really great for traveling.
4. Face recognition option instead of a regular password to access computer.
5. Microphone and camera built in so u can skype without a headset.
This net book is a little slower then a full size laptop for things like gaming. I play games on here a lot. It also, doesn’t have a cdrom.
Tips: I find that google chrome works really well with it because it has less toolbars at the top and its faster. Also, CCleaner which is a free download is really great because it cleans out all the temp files off your computer everytime you turn it on…. which really helps keep it running fast.
If my little Lenovo decides to give up the ghost I will be getting one again… its cheap enough where you don’t even need to get a warranty for it. With shipping and everything it cost me a mere $270.00 and has lasted for over 1 1/2 years now! I recommend this netbook.
Best Netbook with the best price!
I got this product two weeks ago, and it is working great! Battery life is 6-7 hours. Looks very cool and is indeed very stable. You can enlarge the view on the screen just with the touchpad, which is very convenient for a netbook with small screen.
One big advantage is the price. There are too much similar netbooks on this level. Some of them are more popular, bu they are really not that different. So the price become the advantage of this netbook.
Lenovo makes very reliable computer with surprisingly cheap price. I feel very comfortable carrying it with me wherever I go.
