    Everything but the hard drive

    Great processor, great battery life, great GPU for the price. Memory is good enough for me. Backlit keyboard is nice and doesn't flex as much as some larger laptops i've owned. Read more

    1 out of 5 eggs Lenovo Fail.

    Pros: Great Specs

    Cons: Terrible device. Graphics issues, wifi isues, driver issues abound. I have purchased Lenovo for years and never received a worse device. Tech support zero help. Advised to reset device and reinstall everything. After doing so (For second time as this was my first thoughts too) zero change and zero additional help from Lenovo

    Bottom Line: I purchase for a small business of ~120 people and I also consult and I used to recommend Lenovo devices as they were high quality at great prices but this one failure and the tech support after finished that for me. Like all companies I generally rate them not based on normal service but how they deal with problems and Lenovo is a different level of fail on this one.

    4 out of 5 eggs nice laptop bad battery

    Pros: nice build
    love the key board
    nice display

    Cons: Hi I bought the Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59387520) a little over a year ago and now the battery is now not holding a charge. I bought a 2 year extended warranty and they said the battery is not covered. So here I am a tad over the manufacturer warranty and the extended warranty I purchased can not help. Are you kidding me a battery should last longer than a year from normal use. So now I have to make sure I am near a wall to use my laptop.

    3 out of 5 eggs Decent, but still lacking

    Pros: So, this laptop has served me well throughout school and personal use. This laptop is not for enthusiasts, but it is great for portable reliability with enough power to handle whatever your programs may need.

    Cons: The biggest problem of this laptop is that is has Terrible battery life. I contacted Lenovo about this and found out that the battery is only 4-cell and projected to survive at most 4 hours on a full charge. After a short search on the internet I was unable to find a compatible extended battery, so I am stuck with a portable desktop basically.

    1 out of 5 eggs Horrible

    Pros: Inexpensive. Backlit keyboard.

    Cons: Everything else.

    Bottom Line: This thing is junk.

    Windows 8 is basically unusable without a touch screen, which I knew and had planned for before buying this. What I didn't know is that the product key that's needed for the allegedly free sidegrade to Windows 7 is embedded in the bios in such a way as to make it essentially unrecoverale. So

    gripe 1: I had to buy something that I'd theoretically already payed for (Windows 7).

    So I bought and installed Windows 7. The OS install was easy, but the drivers were a bit of a problem. Lenovo maintains a page of Win7 64 bit drivers for this device, and roughly half of them work, which is to say that they install and don't actually cause anything to stop working. Most of the others fail silently, but some are actually destructive. If you install the Lenovo energy management software, the battery will refuse to charge. This is the case even if you configure the software to keep the battery topped up (max availability) rather than at 60% (max life). The only thing that will make the battery function normally is to remove the Lenovo supplied driver and accompanying software altogether. You just have to accept the irritating "unknown device" entry in the device manager. So

    gripe 2: Lenovo provides win 7 drivers and supporting software that just don't work at all.

    Now, one of the drivers that just fails without saying anything is the one for the wireless adapter. If you hunt around you'll eventually figure out that you need to go get the driver from Intel. If you do that the wireless card will be visible to the OS and it will work for a little while - maybe a half hour. After that it will need to be reset either by the Windows troubleshooter or by an enable/disable cycle in the device manager. Obviously this is far from ideal, but it's the closest I've gotten to a working internal wireless connection under Windows 7. Thus

    gripe 3: There doesn't appear to be any way at all to get Windows 7 to work with the installed wireless card.

    To summarize: This device is nothing but trouble. I'll never buy another Lenovo product.

    2 out of 5 eggs Don't buy it

    Pros: Not much.

    Cons: Pretty bad keyboard installed. Couldn't play simple game programs and overall was very disappointing.

    Bottom Line: I would suggest going to ibuypower to buy a gaming laptop.

    2 out of 5 eggs Good hardware ruined by bad software

    Pros: Good hardware horsepower for the money.

    Cons: The bloatware on PCs is even worse today than it was 5 years ago. Wiping the HD with a clean install of Win7, Win8, or Linux is absolutely required to make this machine useable.

    4 out of 5 eggs Decent Laptop

    Pros: I got mine for $900 and it was a pretty good deal for the specs. I also replaced the hard drive with an SSD and memory to 16GB and wiped the system with a new install of Windows 8.1 and it's extraordinarily fast.

    Cons: The case is a bit flimsy in the keyboard area and there's a a little decorative piece across the top that came with this piece bend upwards on one end which has me a bit worried about the screen but hasn't been a problem yet (I've been keeping a screen wiping cloth over it when I close it now).

    The memory module slot isn't terribly big, the memory upgrade I brought had plating on the side and almost doesn't fit, so keep that in mind if you try to buy upgrades.

    The BIOS has a fair amount of optimization for windows as well, so if you try to use a linux distribution, you'll need to change a few settings there. I ran ubuntu for a few days and it had some quirky issues, such as the screen always starting completely dimmed after grub finished. Should you happen to use linux and end up on a blank screen, try turning up the brightness. I also turned off the nvidia card and just used the intel chipset for linux, it made things a bit easier.

    I believe the trackpad has been pointed out as problematic as well. It's not completely terrible for simple tasks but I have a general dislike for trackpads.

    Also doesn't come with a Windows 8 disk, so going a clean install can be a pain.

    Bottom Line: A comparable system after upgrades was about 3 to 4 hundred more dollars than I paid.

    3 out of 5 eggs Works

    Pros: No crazy hardware issues so far. Laptop is as was described with nothing unexpected or not meeting expectations. Runs cool and quiet, screen is good, keyboard is good. Had some issues with the touchpad but suspect usual Windows/driver issues, worked fine after a few updates. Overall it's a decent laptop at a decent price.

    Cons: Only major con so far is the construction. There's a screw under the bottom panel of the laptop that was either not turned in all the way or was mis-threaded. Either way the bottom panel was just jammed on there with a huge bump over the screw. Will take it apart shortly to see if I can simply just screw the protruding screw back in. Terrible QC that I hope doesn't signal additional problems.

    Bottom Line: Took me a while to find the SD card reader.

    Also, FREAKING WINDOWS 8.1! Worst windows since ME. Complete garbage unless you're on a tablet, phone, or something with a touchpad. I know what they're doing, trying to force developers to make apps for windows 8 but, boy does this operating system operate clunky. I'm going to stick with it for now but this is Vista all over again.

    Buy a OEM copy of 7 if you have the money.

    1 out of 5 eggs Lenovo Destruction

    Pros: The price is pretty good for such hardware.

    Cons: Like someone else pointed out, the machine is slow out of the box.

    The keyboard plate wasn't snapped in all the way.

    Poor battery life

    Drivers are not OS friendly

    Most of the things preinstalled on the system sucks about 2-3 GB of ram, which is pretty much half of what is available to you.

    Bottom Line: I am VERY disapointed with this purchase. This is my first laptop and first very big purchase. The system was slow and I used the WIndows 8 factory restore setting...bad idea. The USB drivers are no longer responsive and claims to be malfunctioned. The camera isn't detected either. So I tried fixing all of this with the drivers on the Lenovo site and nothing changed! So I installed 7 to the system hoping it would work. It made things even worse! The drivers weren't being detected at all so now I have to emphisize and use CD-RW's to get the drivers on there. Hoping the camera and usb drivers become functional again.

    Called Lenovo, after a few "disconnections" most of the agents were rude and one even told me that installing WIndows 7 voided the warrenty and that if I spend 59.99 plus shipping/taxes for a Win8 repair disc, then things should go back to normal.

    This is beyond ridiculous and I cannot believe this is happening. The fact that I'm having issues with these drivers and can't fix them (after working with computers since I was a child) really says a lot about this system. The battery is another story. False timstamps, and dies within an hour.

    Do not waste money buying this garbage.

    2 out of 5 eggs LENOVO Z710

    Pros: Why I bought this laptop:
    Needed a new laptop to replace an aging Dell Inspiron that couldn’t keep up with internet videos and everyday processing power. Originally looking towards MSI’s GS70 or similar gaming/media laptop but decided to save a bunch of money and go for the Lenovo Z710. The Lenovo is spec’d pretty well with an Intel i7 processor and 8 gig of memory. At 800 bucks it’s hard to find another laptop with this hardware.

    Cons: Why I shouldn’t have bought this laptop:
    Unboxed and booted up into Windows 8 with no problem but kept noticing the LED display was not to my liking. Colors were over saturated and way off. The viewing angle on this thing is the worst I’ve ever seen. You have to have the screen at just the correct angle to prevent the colors from flipping like a polarizing effect. The blacks will literally turn to silver when the screen angle is changed ever so slightly. Even worse the illumination will dither towards the edges as if you’re wearing a miners light on your forehead. It’s really that bad. Movies and games are pretty much unwatchable. I spent hours trying different settings. Even changing the color profile resulting in little improvement. I’ve connected the laptop to an external monitor and noticed a huge improvement. It’s pretty much normal at that point but that ruins the meaning a laptop if you have to hook up to a monitor. There’s nothing defective on the machine. It’s just the way Lenovo built it. A really bad display with a decent hardware configuration.

    Bottom Line: Other thoughts:
    The machine is plagued with useless software and a really slow 1TB hard drive. I swapped out the stock HD for a much faster SSD and installed Windows 8.1. Big improvement but still can’t get past the lousy display. At this point I think I’ll take a financial beating and put it up for auction.
