John, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks great and been able to handle anything ive ran on it.
Bad points:
Screen is a wee bit delicate due to it been so skinny, battery is awful and a serious let down lasts below a hour and a half and having to charge it 3 or 4 times a day is a annoyance. And when that battery needs to be replace as it will when im having to charge and run it though its cycle so much it'll be a pain because theres no easy way of removing it.

Yik Long , Oldenburg General home user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The performance when playing game is quite good as a Laptop and have not much lag when run design program like Auto Dask. In general the laptop itself worth its price.
Bad points:
The reliability and warranty service are horrible. The mother board was burn within one year even under best extra ventilation.
The repair center have no spare part in storage and was reluctant to order the part. Instead they sent back the laptop to the client and tell them to find other repair center.

Vincent, Tilburg Music, gaming or video fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
-Looks good
-Keys can light up
-Good for gaming
Bad points:
-The screen is glued to the hinges. This is pretty weak. Even with normal use it let loose after a couple of months. Lenovo won't repair it because according to them it's the fault from the user. I found out on the internet that this is a problem that returns repeatedly.
-The 8 on the numpad doesn't work well (I had multiple models) if you press on it on the bottom left.
