Lenova is currently 2 in laptops. For 300 you won't get a better built laptop. Its not the fastest but its cheap. You may be able to get a junky brand with more but then you must like buying laptops e

I really have no major complaints. It can be a bit on the slow side but some of that is me not familiar with Windows 8
Possibly the worst thing I have ever bought on the internet. This computer is slow, cheap, most of the features just barely work. Basic tasks seem impossible

Sound problems abound on this laptop. Avoid unless you are willing to dedicate days to finding a solution with only the possibility of success. Shoddy product preparation by Lenovo and poor support.
