DO NOT BUY...till they fix the mousepad on this thing. This thing seems to have gone through absolutely no QA before being shipped.
I've been using HP's and Dell's and heard a lot about Lenovo's so went ahead and bought this one. Nice laptop with a good LED screen and i5 processor but what's the point if you can't work it using the mousepad. It is beyond horrible - the mouse has a mind of it's own. Does not follow the finger well at all. Sometimes I'll keep moving my finger and the mouse would be left behind somewhere. Just grabbing a window slider to scroll a window is a hugely frustrating task. I've tried all kinds of mouse setting available but nothing seems to make this better. And the buttons are all part of the mouse pad. On my HP I can move the mouse and hit the left/right button using just one hand. No such luck on this one. You need mucles to depress that button and the fact that it's built into the mousepad instead of being separate buttons makes it even harder. So now you need two hands - one to move the pointer around and another to depress the mouse.
Going to talk to Amazon right now to figure out what to do about this. Once I started using this and figure out the mousepad is so horrible - I thought I got a bad piece so I googled. Apparently - it's a known issue but Lenovo continues to ship defective laptops. My first and last Lenovo for sure. Don;t know if I can [ut in links but just seacrh for Lenovo trackpad/mousepad issues before buying....
Love it. Everything works perfectly, quick shipping, great specs and have no problems, issues, or hiccups. I ran it through all kinds of simultaneous tech tests in the last couple days with large transfers, videos, programmng, photoshop, gaming, etc. Everything is great with no complaints.

I take this thing out of the box and start it up. The mouse pad sucks. I can't even use the laptop in the current condition as it keeps freezing. Nice. So I cannot do anything with it as it is just loaded down with bloatware. I boot into safe mode and got rid of McAfee. I am making progress. I can do some things now. I boot back into windows 7, ok mouse pad still sucks but at least now I can get the uninstall programs to finally come up after 10 more minutes. I start to uninstall some more apps, and things are slowly getting better. Mouse pad still sucks and this laptop is pissing me off more and more by the minute and I just spent 3 hours trying to get this NEW laptop working. I received this laptop today on Friday and I am sending this thing back ASAP on Monday!!!! Seriously, how are they selling this thing??? If you want some advice on this thing, DON'T BUY IT!!!! I bought this to replace an old Gateway laptop that my wife has destroyed over the years by spilling on it and dropping it. Guess what, that hunk of junk is faster than that Lenovo I bought with a core i5?!?!?!?!? Crazy isn't it!!!!! How can you screw this up??? Honestly, you have to just plain be dumb to be able to screw up building a machine with a core i5 and have it be slower than a 5yr old beaten Gateway laptop.
