1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: The laptop is very thin and pleasant to look at. It has potential to perform well in games due to the A10 7300 APU. Performs snappy in windows 8.1

Cons: The A10 never hits its rated specs (1.9ghz base and 3.2 ghz turbo). During a game of League of Legends it runs at 1400 mhz. Temps per hwmonitor are 95 cel at idle on windows 8.1 desktop so this is most likely why it does not turbo to the speeds advertised. Newegg wants $68 to RMA a product that does not remotely meet the advertised specs.

Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this laptop. The A10 7300 is a nice APU that should be very desirable in a mobile platform. I'm not sure why this Lenovo performs so poorly but it runs 95 cel in windows. I could probably open it up and reapply thermal paste and drop temps so it will turbo. But i'm not opening it to risk voiding the warranty when I can send it back and get a pc that performs closer to its rated spec.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Laptop

Pros: Definitly a good upgrade from a Trinity APU. It's thinner and less bulky. On top of that its cooler and battery life is deifnitly better. Being cooler its also quieter. Performance is good. Mostly capped by the stock harddrive. I'd upgrade that to a Hybrid or SSD. RAM is sufficient as I never go above 30% on either RAM or CPU. The HDD runs at 100% a lot though. 5400 RPMs just isn't enough. Sufficient to game on low to medium settings no sweat.

Cons: Battery capacity is small. It says up to 4 hours but I doubt you ill get that It's only a 4 cell battery. The optical dirve is not necessary and the lack of a hybrid or SSD drive really caps the computer. I would have also liked it to be a little lighter. The touchpad buttons are a hair small due to its angular design.

Other Thoughts: Wish it came with an FX-7500 or a dedicated graphics card. One of the only Kaveri's around in the USA so not much choice. If you can find it on sale sub $400 (which I did) its a steal. Who cares of Carrizo is coming out soon at that price you can still go buy a Carrizo when it comes out.

4 out of 5 eggswindows 8.1 will die

Pros: The hardware is fine and decently powerful for your money. Computer it's self is good and that is why it gets 4 eggs over all it is a 2.5 or 3 with windows 8 see cons for why.

Cons: low battery life no HDD indicator light and comes with windows 8.1.

Windows 8.1 was a bear to deal with and had updates that broke windows to where it will not work on this laptop. My advice is ti ether install win 7 on it from a clean install or on a partition. I turned off windows updates to prevent the incompatible updates from ruining my OS and windows 8.1 changes those settings back to auto update automatically and then proceeded to commit suicide. I had no option but to install 7 from a clean install afterwords.

Other Thoughts: Should come with win7 from factory. save yourself the pain and get the drivers from lenovo and install 7 first thing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget laptop

Pros: Handles basic office tasks and web browsing effortlessly.
Wirelessly streams HD video to my TV no problem.
Can't go wrong supporting the underdog AMD.
While not perfect, the price is right.
It also handles old games with ease.

5 eggs considering it is a budget lappy.

Cons: WXGA screen, not 1080p.
The viewing angles on the screen are average at best.
It also comes with a lot of pre-installed software that I just ended up deleting.

Other Thoughts: Wish it was available with Windows 7, I'm not a fan of 8.

5 out of 5 eggsLenovo Z50-75 with A10-7300APU

Pros: The Lenovo Model Z50-75 with an A10-7300 APU is a very nicely balanced machine. The x86 quad core is very lively and responsive. The R6 GPU and display are also quite nice. The machine is simple and lean, and very quiet. The speakers sound small, but they can get plenty loud.

Drivers for Windows 7 are available online, but there's no need -- Windows 8.1 with an external mouse is just fine on this laptop.

Laptop internals are easily accessible and an SSD upgrade would be huge. Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual is refreshingly good.

Cons: The drivers are "early" but stable.

No HDD activity indicator. The HDD is a primary bottleneck for this laptop, and an indicator would be very useful. A task manager "summary view" is a good work around for this.

The only updated Lenovo download that I needed was BIOS v. 1.07 -- the machine shipped with v. 1.03. However, Lenovo's automatic updater application said "Your computer is up to date." Uh huh. I guess a new BIOS doesn't qualify. I had to manually update it.

I tried AMD Catalyst 14.6 rc and saw some improvement. However it introduced an intermittent problem with a "frozen screen" type system lockup when on battery power. Backing out to Lenovo release drivers required a Windows 8.1 "Refresh" type recovery of Windows.

Other Thoughts: Nephew bought this from NewEgg. This is a good value, excellent student machine that will allow some casual gaming.

Benchmark Unigen Heaven 4.0, with Balanced power plan and Catalyst 14.4 @ DX11, medium quality, moderate tessellation, no AA, 1366 x 768 full screen: scores 378 and 15.0 fps (scores 321 and 12.8 fps on battery). This 19 W TDP student machine has some game!

Per CPU-Z: the 8 GB RAM is 2 x SODIMM Samsung M471B5173DB0-YK0 running at DDR3L 1600, and the 1 TB HDD is ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB. The battery is L12M4A02. The 45 W charger is Lite-on ADLX45NLC3A. The Wi-Fi adapter is Qualcomm Atheros AR956x operating at 2.4 GHz 802.11n.

There was no recovery media provided. A 16 GB flash drive is required to create a "USB Recovery Drive." There is a small partition D: with 2.1 GB of factory applications and drivers on it. A single DVD-R on the internal DVD burner will handle that. Recovery media: check.

Addition of a "Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse bluetooth" operates beautifully. It feels like a wired mouse. The track-pad can be enabled and disabled automatically, or manually with a hot-key. This mouse is a great combination with this laptop.

Parts used:
Silicon Power USB 3.0 16 GB: N82E16820301043
Microsoft Bluetooth mouse: N82E16826105646

4 out of 5 eggsLenovo at its best and worst

Pros: I bought this laptop around the end of July. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. Newegg delivers what it promises and always has. The only problems I got from it stemmed from the manufacturer. I'll get to that in just a moment.

On the positive side, the computer is great. the processor is quiet, cool, and fairly powerful, a big improvement over my previous one. The screen may not be 1080p but it does what I want at a comfortable resolution. The mousepad and keyboard are excellent and the bluetooth and wifi signals seem to be quite strong. Its also lighter than my previous laptop. Graphics are great (for integrated laptop) and it covers everything I need for programming and gaming.

Cons: However, Lenovo did its best to make the experience extremely frustrating. First of all, the unattended installation files included weren't set up right so my OS didn't ok nstall correctly. After calling and talking to their support multiple times and ordering their recovery discs multiple times (they never showed up), I eventually gave up and found my own copy of Windows 8.1 to install. Note if that happens to you, the product key is located in the BIOS. As long as you install Windows 8.1 (regular version) it will automatically recognize it and activate.
Now the support staff were helpful and tried to assist me but it never worked out. Also, as mentioned in the other review, the battery life is not very good unless you tweak a lot of the power settings.

3 out of 5 eggsSo Close

Pros: Newer Kaveri CPU is very fast with signifigantly powerful GPU for barsically all indie games.

Cons: Everyone of these cheap lenovo laptops sufferes from this a absurdly tiny battery. 2 hours is about what you shoul be expercting, not 5. for a 700$ laptop it is clear that they need to get over this stuff and put a decent battery in. (every amd lapop that I have seen from lenovo has had this problem)

Next up Screen Resolution
You have a powerful GPU in this thing, signifigantly stronger than all intel intergrated GPU's lets see you use that for something useful. Like a decent screen.

Its up to lenovo to make a decent computer for this new processor and they have yet to try
