    Laptop arrived but CD/DVD drive was not recognised. Windows 7 installed but Lenovo will not send the recovery discs for Windows 7 on Windows 8!

    Solid and stable. Keyboard nice to use. Works very well.
    A build to order takes 3 weeks so we could have additons that should arguably be standard. Ie a webcam and
    increased Ram to 8 gb

    I like how light it is compared to my previous laptop. Also it is easy to use and plays games like Skyrim very well.
    Nothing so far it is exactly what I wanted and is exactly as described.

    The trackpoint is the only pointing mechanism I can use so I will continue to buy ThinkPads as long as they exist! V loyal customer (my last one is 3yrs old and still working - but slow - so my son has it).
    Limited options for the technical build on this machine mean I don't have quite as much memory as I wanted, but it's good for the price.

    The design is great, the hardware is fine. It was a reasonable price and is a nice weight.
    Windows 8 is confusing and buggy. I've had the laptop for 2 weeks now and it has failed to load, crashed, struggled to install apps, had constant problems with different drivers (all of which were pre-installed and needing updates). I've had to do a complete system restore to reset to it's factory settings because it could not run properly - refusing to load up and crashing.

    Lenovo was quite unhelpful -saying it wasn't their problem because it was a software issue not hardware. I now hope after re-setting it that the computer will actually work.

    Battery life looks good. Other than that I'm struggling for ideas.
    It's so slow doing very simple tasks, the sticker on top falls over easy

  • Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the E545

    1. Aman asked on

      I have a Lenovo Edge E545 which I have been using for setting up virtual labs and the system performance has degraded over time. I am thinking of beefing it up with SSD and more RAM. Which SSDs did you go for?

      Many thanks in advance.

      1. John replied on
        I haven't added an SSD to my E535 yet, but I replaced the hard disk in my wife's ThinkPad X100e with a Crucial BX100 250 GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal Solid State Drive, and in my other ThinkPad X201 I replaced the hard disk with a Crucial MX200 500GB SATA 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive.

        Very happy with both, and of the two if I bought another it would be the MX200.
