5 out of 5 eggsGreat Balance Between Price and Performance

Pros: As I summarized in the review title--this laptop shows great balance between price and performance. It has a quad-core CPU with built-in graphics good enough to run HD videos, web browsing, and day-to-day common tasks smoothly and efficiently. Multitasking and running several tabs in the browser doesn't seem to slow the CPU. The CPU is also robust enough to run some of the most popular games today in low to medium, and sometimes high settings depending on the game title. The screen looks great and mine came with no visible dead/stuck pixels or any noticeable back light bleed. I'll rate the audio a little above average compared to other laptops. I also like the feel of the keys when typing despite the "clicky" sounds it produces. There are 4 USB ports total (two USB 2.0 & two USB 3.0). USB 3.0 made it possible for me to install Windows 7 in less than 10 mins (on an SSD). Even though I use an external wireless trackball, I don't find anything wrong with using the trackpad also. The trackpad is very responsive and works as it should be. I also noticed that the battery charges pretty quick.

Cons: *Might want to upgrade the hard drive to an SSD to experience full potential of this laptop.
*Might want to upgrade RAM too to DDR 3 1600 (2x4GB) to max out the RAM. Yes, this laptop's max RAM speed is 1600 according to the specs.
*Don't buy this laptop if you are thinking of using this laptop mainly for hard core gaming. Although this laptop is capable of playing even the latest games, you won't be able to crank the settings too high and will be forced to always play in low-medium settings. Build/Buy a gaming desktop instead.
*The built-in wi-fi card on this laptop is kind of weak. I wasn't able to get the full speed even when it was close to my wireless router. If you are just browsing websites and playing videos on Youtube, you won't be able to notice much difference. But if you are transferring/downloading huge files, the speed difference will show. An easy fix for this is buying a separate external USB wireless adapter. I have a Netgear one that I got from Newegg when it was on sale (it was refurbished but still works good). I am able to both use the external and internal wireless adapter and boost my WAN/LAN speed comparable to my wired desktop using this setup.
*If you replace the OS of this laptop to Windows 7, the built-in camera stops to work even with installing the Windows 7 drivers. You will be forced get a 3rd party webcam app (e.g. WebcamMax) to be able to use it.

Other Thoughts: If you are in need of a great value laptop for school, light office work, or just a laptop to take with you along in your travels, this is a good choice. If you want a laptop for gaming, I'm afraid you might want to spend a little more or just get a gaming desktop.

You might also want to do the following upgrades if you want to boost this laptop's performance:

1.) Solid State Drive
2.) DDR 3 SO-DIMM 1600 RAMs (2x4GB) *Max
3.) External Wireless Adapter
4.) External USB Portable Hard Drive (Extra Storage)
5.) If you don't like Windows 8, change it to Windows 7

*The above upgrades isn't really necessary. The laptop functions great as it is but at least replacing the hard drive alone with a solid state drive will greatly improve its performance and still be cheaper compared to other laptops with same specs.

*I'm not sure how much truth in this but I've read that AMD APU graphics still beats Intel's Haswell built-in graphics.

Windows Experience Index (Without Upgrades):

Processor: 6.9
Memory (RAM): 6.9
Graphics: 6.7
Gaming Graphics: 6.7
Primary hard disk: 5.9

Windows Experience Index (with just the SSD upgrade):

Processor: 6.9
Memory (RAM): 7.3
Graphics: 6.7
Gaming Graphics: 6.7
Primary hard disk: 7.9

If you're curious what SSD I used, its OCZ Vertex 4 512GB version. No, I did not buy that SSD solely for this laptop. It used to be on my main Gaming Desktop but I replaced the SSD of that one with Samsung SSD Pro. Just get a 120-256GB SSD and you should be good. I suggest getting Samsung Pro, Kingston HyperX, or OCZ Vertex/Vector.

And yea, make sure you download all the drivers first on Lenovo's website before trying to change the OS to Windows 7.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good value

Pros: The unit I received has no default, the built and finish are great. I had to adjust the color settings because at first the overal display was on the 'bleuish' side. I had to also play a lot with the settings of the pointing device, I couldn't stand the defaults.
I play some games (Dragon Age II, Diablo III so far) and the performance is surprising - I had not been anticipating to be able to play games like this on a $579 machine, all taxes and delivery included. Of course performance for anything else is good too (multimedia, web), I also run some virtual machines on it without any problem.
I looked at the combination of NVidia/Intel but they start at $300 more for a rough equivalent. I find that this A10 platform is a great value for the money. It isn't a 'ferrari', nothing is included in the box beside plug and battery (plus small booklet and CD): but it doesn't cost $1350 either.
It does what I bought it for very well. The battery charges quickly and lasts a decent amount of time (more than 4 hours).

Cons: I am not sure that this is my best type of keyboard: I have another laptop (diff. brand) and I think I prefer this other one for typing - but don't get me wrong this is a quality keyboard, it is just my preference.
I play games yes, but I am not a die hard gamer. Probably if you are and have $500 more to spend you would get an even better 3D performance. That being said I haven't met any lag or performance problem with the games I played on it so far. Sound is good but there are probably higher end sound systems.

Other Thoughts: I am not disappointed at all.

4 out of 5 eggsTotally capable as is.

Pros: - Extremely fast
- Fantastic picture quality
- Battery life of 3-4 hours on balanced power plan, upwards of 5 on power saver
- Runs most games with no problems
- Price tag way below what you'd expect for this kind of tech
- Light weight, easily portable
- Number pad for quick cell entries or calculating
- Media buttons in a secure place, nearly impossible to hit on accident

Cons: - Touchpad is nigh-unusable
- Speaker quality is average at best
- No number lock indicator, CAPS lock indicator is on the front of the laptop in a hard-to-see place.
- Not a con for the machine itself, but I just couldn't cope with Windows 8. However, after downloading a free start menu online, everything has been perfectly serviceable.

Other Thoughts: - Keyboard is really loud. If that's not your thing, it can probably get really annoying, though it doesn't bother me at all.
- Arrow keys are kinda squished in with the rest of the keyboard, but they are marked with raised edges, so they shouldn't be too tough to feel for.
- Lots of shovelware on start-up, be sure to check what all you're installing when you first boot it up.

After finding out the drivers on my old laptop were no longer being updated, I found a lot of my games suddenly unplayable. I don't use my PC for everything, but I had a ton of games on Steam, and really didn't want to lose my ability to play them. I had to look for something with a manageable price, but still able to play games like Team Fortress 2 and Civilization V. I did some research and decided to try my first machine with an AMD processor, instead of Intel.

So far, I've been very pleased. Everything runs smoothly on even the highest settings (note that this doesn't include stuff like Crysis and Battlefield), which is not something I expected to get out of this. While the audio isn't anything to write home about, I couldn't have asked for a better picture quality, and everything loads very quickly.

While I rate this as 4 stars, that's only because it has a few flaws, and I would rather give it an extra 1/2 if I could. It became apparent right off the bat that the touchpad and I were gonna have issues. But really, if you're buying this laptop to game, you're going to have an accompanying mouse, so it really doesn't make any difference. I highly doubt you could find anything better than this at this price!

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Performance per Dollar

Pros: • $580 at time of purchase
• Incredibly fast (quad core 2.3GHz + Radeon HD 7660)
• Keyboard is way more comfortable to type on than you would guess
• HDD is 7200 RPM, not 5400 like most laptops
• UEFI and GPT partitioned by default, Secure Boot easy to disable.

Cons: • Broadcom wireless adapter makes installing some Linux distributions a pain
• Only 1366x768 display
• Lots of bloatware on the default Windows 8 install, takes a bit of time to remove.
• No indicator light for Num-Lock. Seriously.

Other Thoughts: • Touch pad takes some getting used to.
• EUFI settings are pretty limited, no options to overclock, etc.
• ThinkPad snobs will think less of you, despite this IdeaPad being a much better deal.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: - Very fast.
- Bluetooth.
- Wonderful as is. The price tag makes it spectacular.
- Gaming ability is much higher than what I expected.
- Great battery life (see Other Thoughts).
- Keyboard is comfortable for me despite having large hands.

Cons: - Capacitive media buttons (don't quote me on that) require more of a "press" than a "touch" to operate.
- Keyboard starts out being very quiet during typing but after a few months of constant usage, it gets the "clicky sound" thing going. I've had several Ideapads with these keyboards and it happens to all of them--I don't mind it, but it's something to consider if you prefer a quiet typing experience.
- Touchpad is kind of finicky with the default drivers. Make sure to go straight to Synaptics and download their latest driver--it's a great touchpad afterwards.

Other Thoughts: AMD definitely beats Intel as far as performance-per-dollar on this machine. Very capable CPU; willingly takes whatever I throw at it.

I'll be honest...I turned mine on once with the factory-installed hard drive to make sure everything worked. After that, I installed a Crucial M4 256gb SSD and purchased an OEM copy of Windows 7 (not a big fan of 8 yet...) and all I have to say is wow. This thing is so quick for only having $750ish invested in it. Boots up in 15-20 seconds every time. The battery life (with SSD) is amazing. Using the Windows 7 "Power Saver" profile, it goes 4-6 hours easily. The "High Performance" profile definitely makes this machine shine though. I'm not a very heavy gamer but I do play WoW and TF2 when I'm not doing homework. This laptop averages 45-60 FPS in WoW (w/ vysnc) and stays between 55-60 FPS in TF2 (w/ vsync).

I'm not sure how much you would spend on a similarly capable Intel laptop but I'm certain it would be more than $750! Buy this machine, toss a SSD in it, and you're good to go. Highly recommend this one!
