***my original review of mid Jan was fantastic. I was impressed. it’s now April 6th. days gone by it was fine. Today, as soon as I hit the power button a white screen comes up and that is that. I tried fixes I establish online (compelling out battery, holding the power button for a long even as, hitting it ten era, putting battery back in etc.) still no boot.

Warranty is handled by IBM EZ serv. I spent 3 hours online days gone by trying to find out where I could get it repaired locally. By the time I establish it, after the mess of IBM EZ website (what a nightmare. Why do they need you to sign up for an account THEN question you for your name and address like 4 era before they will get you to a screen where they finally STOP asking! They even kept saying I needed to add the floor my business was located on. I don’t own a business. In the end, made on up. just stupid. The most frustrating experience esp in view of the fact that I was trying to do it on my cell phone. The only additional internet access I had at the time.) Course, by the time I finally establish out where the most local repair authorization place was (gave up on the IBM site and dug till I establish the info elsewhere), it was after 5 on friday and now have to wait till Monday. But from the message on the answering apparatus, it doesn’t sound like the place I establish in Asheville, NC is really a repair place either. To a fantastic degree see if they call me back. I did manage to place in a ticket to IBM in the end. Reckon twice about where you will get this fixed before you buy it. I can’t toss away a few hundred dollars on a computer that lasts only 7 weeks. And I just learned this is a not uncommon problem? So much for sturdy enough for kids. This computer was treated kindly yet still broke in less than 6 months. Call me mad!

—-original review. all right except if it won’t boot, it don’t really matter aptly?—–

I am a novelist and needed certain things. they say the netbook is vacant away but for writing, we can’t use a tablet lacking a real keyboard. this is the answer for many of us.

1. battery longer than 3 or 4 hours. This one is 6 lacking a dimmed monitor. btw, the only way to get the 8.5 stated is to have the monitor so dim it’s nearly black. stupid for them to even start to count that! but 6 is excellent for writing anywhere there is no plug. I’m NOT limited to certain coffee shops etc.

2. Has windows 7 pro64 which I establish incredible. Most have windows starter – a real stripped down version of windows. Wanted 7 because 8 seems to be a nightmare. More work to learn a system to do the same thing in the end. (lacking a touch screen, windows 8 might as well not continue living.)

3. runs on the amd equivalent of the intel i3. Many run on ATOM (stay clear!), the new ones run on chrome which means you can’t run your own programs (like celtx, photoshop, indesign etc.) You can only run google apps and they all get stored on the cloud instead of in your personal computer. NOT ok for writers or anyone who wants the document on their OWN computer. no better than a tablet lacking a real hard drive. This one had only 1.3ghz rather than the newer version which has 1.66 but for about $300 less, i’m excellent with the slower processor. I’m not intending to run the world from here! :)

3. 320 gig and NOT a 5400 hard drive. For those who don’t know, the quicker hard drive is quite incredible! it’s rare to find such a quick hard drive in such a small device. Lenovo seems to frequently use quicker hard drives which is a very pleasant surprise and speaks a lot to me of the company. (doesn’t just stick in the least expensive parts even if you have no thought what a quick hard drive is.)

4. upgradable to 8 gigs of RAM/memory! most gateway 10in netbooks have 1 gig and difficulty upgradable to 2 max. This one has two ram slots and can be excellent enough to run all adobe products you want to run in a small screen.

5. speaking of which, an 11.6 inch screen rather than the traditional 10.1. fantastic.

6. AMD dual core is the semi equivalent of the i3 intel. same system I have on my “real” laptop and it works quick enough for me (a graphic designer). excellent enough sometimes is financially excellent enough aptly?

7. price. this is nearly $600 on the lenovo website. this is a fantastic price. older netbook but not by much. worth a small older for windows 7. the technology is less than a year ancient. excellent enough for gov. work.

8. this is a “built tough” netbook which I frankly didn’t know when I bought it. (got it from woot.com for $300 + $5 shipping on special.) it’s nearly 4 pounds because the plastic on the computer casing is much higher quality than any additional I looked at. it’s not flimsy. there is a rubber rim all around the monitor which encases all the edges when it is closed. Less chance to bump and dent and have a “mild” drop and have it no longer work it seems. The keyboard is spill waterproof or resistant. forget which. it’s made specially for grades 1-12…

I like the computer, but beware of the seller’s misleading description, June 11, 2013

These are really fantastic small computers. I bought one at a super discount last fall and it has been a rockstar. But, it got the H20 virus and I needed a replacement asap to get some vital project files off the drive. I establish this one. The title says “2GB RAM” but the description says “8GB RAM.” I questioned an Amazon rep to clarify the actual equipment and she confirmed it shipped with 8GB of RAM.

When the computer indoors it only had 2GB RAM. Because the buy was through a third party vendor “fulfilled by Amazon,” my only option was to return the computer. At that point I had already installed my ancient drive, was on the road with my project, and didn’t have time to return and re-order, so I settled for purchasing a RAM upgrade. I will say Amazon’s customer service was very excellent, but there is only so much they can do regarding third party sellers.

This title not matching the description issue has been plaguing the site for quite a minute now, Amazon really needs to reign it in. 2GB of RAM barely gets Win7 Pro up and running.

Now, regarding the actual computer, these things have a terrible rap, but as an IT professional I have establish mine to be solid workhorse of a netbook. Don’t expect to do any making a bet or major video procution, but if you need a excellent, solid netbook that travels well, is solid and reliable and will handle day-to-day office tasks (Office, basic image editing, PDF foundation, etc.), this is a fantastic buy. An 8GB RAM upgrade is under $100, so you can save some money by buying this one they cheaped out on and adding some RAM.
