    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.

    LENOVO Z710

    2 out of 5 eggs
    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.

    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.

    Pros: + Great specs for the price
    + Backlit keyboard

    Cons: - awful build quality
    - finicky drivers
    - tiny battery
    - glossy screen
    - poor viewing angle
    - flimsy keyboard
    - runs like garbage out of the box

    Bottom Line: Where do I even start? I this for a friend and agreed to set it up for her. I set up new machines from Windows disks (which this does not come with btw) to create standard images on a regular basis at work, and for many years, and I don't think I've ever seen something so difficult with drivers. Forget the Lenovo site, you'll have to hunt a few down by skimming through forums before it will accept them. Off the bat, I started by just running Windows Update and getting it current. After installing 8.1 and seeing no more updates, I finally sat down with it and saw how poorly it was running - Ok, start over. Restored from factory image on disk. Before installing updates I poked around a bit and it still ran like garbage. I'll give an example: cold boot, give it time to start up and finish, launch Control Panel, make a selection, takes 15-30 seconds to do anything while the window freezes up. Ok, fine... maybe it's got a bad component, so I ran diagnostics. I ran hours and hours of tests and could not find an identifiable fault. Ok, maybe it's the Lenovo image from the factory... I happen to have a spare copy of 7 around, so I start from scratch. After finally tracking down all the drivers that WORK, I started over AGAIN just to give it as perfect an install as possible. All said and done, still runs like words NewEgg won't let me use... windows freeze up all the time, it's just horrible.

    Aside from this, chassis is just....... cheap. The keyboard wasn't snapped all the way in out of the box, and even after sorting it, the whole keyboard visibly bows upward in the center and warps all over the place when trying to type. I can't even compare this to anything because I don't think I've ever seen a keyboard this bad. Seriously, I've seen sturdier blister packs. The viewing angle on the monitor isn't the worst thing ever, but it's disappointing for 2014. The battery is far too small - I kid you not, my 6 year old Macbook I still use constantly gets SIGNIFICANTLY better battery life on it's ORIGINAL battery that has over 1000 cycles on it. I'm not exaggerating.

    Overall, I'm terribly disappointed in Lenovo. I've been a long time fan, and I made this recommendation based on previous experience. Future recommendations both personal and professional will reflect this.

    4 out of 5 eggs First Impressions

    Pros: The build quality on this laptop is pretty top good all around. The viewing angles on the panel are pretty well as well as the brightness of the screen.

    Cons: The keyboard feels really flimsy. Typing experience is pretty bad. Overall i would call it bellow average. Also the hard drive is slow since it's 5400 rpm. I would change it out for an SSD. Also Windows 8 is preinstalled. Other than that nothing else to complain about.

    Bottom Line: Tried Heartstone on default settings and it ran smooth.

    4 out of 5 eggs great power for less

    Pros: Nice screen (though abit too glossy/glare)

    Good specs for the price.

    Plays all my AAA games on high settings fine.

    Good at multitasking.

    Light up keyboard.

    Cons: Low battery life.

    Glare onscreen as well as bad viewing angles.

    Windows 8

    Bottom Line: If your steam games are crashing, it could be your anti-virus software. Shut off firewall & real-time scans before starting games to avoid crashes.

    4 out of 5 eggs OSD in windows 7 64

    Pros: good price /performance

    Cons: keyboard keys seem cheaper but it maybe getting used to.

    Bottom Line: In the past i have been able to downgrade Os's on many laptops.
    Installed windows 7 64 ultimate. Only thing I cannot figure out is the on screen controls ( green volume on screen display) , Usually it is the energy management software that does this but it isnt working for me.

    Upgraded to 8.1 and things are working. I may just switch to 8.1

    Please post if you have a solution.

    4 out of 5 eggs Great Price Good Laptop

    Pros: + I7 4700mq processor makes for better than expected CPU at this price

    + 17" display full HD display Bright and Responsive, bezel does not look too big compared to display.

    Has the GT 745M dedicated graphics card unlike others offered with a 745m but shipped with first generation 740m cards. Decent performance in todays apps and games.

    + Price

    + Looks great, specifically the inside done in silver.

    Cons: - Hard-drive is slow but still does the job, if replaced with an SSD drive would be much better.

    - Touchpad seems difficult to use but starting to get used to it. May try an update later.



    - Windows 8, yeah it sucks ....

    Bottom Line: For the price I'm not sure you could find a better laptop for everyday use plus some gaming. Seems to run todays game at decent frames even at high settings. It's not a gaming machine nor a high performance laptop but I think for under 800 you would be hard-press to find a "new" laptop that performs this well.

    I bought this elsewhere first and it was advertised with a Nvidia 745m but shipped with a 740m, now having tried the same laptop with the 745m I'm seeing a 8-15% increase in most games fps at highest settings. The 745m is throwing out a little more heat but it seems within reason.

    So far happy with the purchase and would recommend to others.
