    Nice design, good performance from the A8 if you use a custom install. Drivers easy to access on recovery partition. You need a 8GB USB pendrive to backup restore partition, to make a custom install USB. As a generic Windows work horse, it works well.
    Lenovo's W81 install brings the machine to its knees, battery life could be better. Drive partition all over the place, wasting space.

    Starts quickly
    Good big screen and clear display
    The operating system. Windows 8.1 is new to me and I find it difficult to adapt to. The start page is dire.

    Fleet GB Used occasionally in Church
    Good value for money for an everyday machine.
    Battery life average. USB ports too close together - hard to get a memory stick and presenter stick in side by side.

    Has all the specs I need for a reasonable price. Recommended.
    Windows 8. Ended up switching to a Linux distribution & have sorted out most of the kinks without a problem. Placement of the trackpad required some adjusting of how I rest my hands on keyboard, so as not to accidentally tap it.

        Yes it's good quality and quick
      2. Jeff replied on
        It will do it, probably slower than you would like.
    3. Martin asked on
      Does This laptop comes with windows 8 or 8.1
      1. Elaine replied on
        Mine came with Windows 8
      2. Jeff replied on
        Yes, no real difference, it is recommended to update to Win 8.1 or even Win 10.
    4. Omar asked on
      the screen is anti - reflection?

      1. Jeff replied on
        No, it's not a matt screen, but the anti-reflection is fairly good.
      2. Donald replied on
        No, the screen reflects strongly, poor feature.
    5. Thomas asked on
      Does this laptop have the capability to play The Sims 4?
      1. Jeff replied on
        yes but at a very low graphical level
    6. curtis asked on
      getting this laptop for basic word, excel use etc. also itunes and I need to download steam for football manager, anyone know how well games run on it?
      1. Paul replied on
        It will do all the usual stuff easily. Has quad (4) core processor, so very fast... hence most modern games should will play without a problem.

    7. dainah asked on
      Is mucrosoft office included or compatible with these laptops?
      1. Jeff replied on
        You get a trial version, but not worth space it takes up on your hdd. It is fully compatible with any version of Office. Personally, download a free copy of Libre Office and you get 99% if what you need.
      2. Donald replied on
        Yes, I agree with Jeff. My choice of free office software is Apache Open Office, which deals with all of my requirements.
    8. Danny asked on
      is there a wired Ethernet connection capability?
      1. Elaine replied on
        Yes there is
      2. Paul replied on
        Yes, there is on mine, plus HDMI and USB. But best to check the spec at point of sell (it will be on the sellers web-page) to verify exactly what is available on latest versions.
