Did your computer break down?
Is Lenovo refusing to repair it under the warranty?
When you are typing a document in word, if you stop typing long enough for the screen to sleep, the touch pad stops working and you have to use your finger even though it’s not in tablet mode.
When you update, all your desktop icons disappear. I attempted to ask a question on their live chat and was forwarded to a screen that wanted 42$ to answer a question that in my opinion should be in a free forum.
I had an apple notebook and never had these issues. I thought the compatibility would be easier to PC’s but I’ve been more annoyed with this laptop than I ever was with my apple.
And with apple, I could easily visit a store and have my questions resolved for free.
In fact, I will probably sell this laptop for half of what i payed and use the cash purchase something better and more predictable and reliable with better customer service after I spend nearly 1k!
I bought a used desktop and got a great deal as it was less than a year old at the time.
Little did I know that this would be the worst and most unreliable computer I have ever owned, even going back to the 90s. ….Almost half the time it takes an incredibly long time to start with out any notice given of why, though it usually starts fast.
Then it will slow down my mouse speed if idle for too long even though I have screensaver and power management turned OFF.
Please Lenovo, do yourself and the world a favor and get out of the computer game. You have ABOLSULTELY NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
I will never buy another Lenovo product for so long as I live, new or used, no matter how good the deal. People who make Lenovo have no idea what the hell they are doing!!!!!!!
My family owns four Yoga 3 laptops. They have all worked pretty well, EXCEPT the wall charger is a piece of junk. We have had four failures of wall chargers over a three year period and Lenovo’s crappy, India, “customer gets NO SERVICE” Department does not give a damn when you complain and try to reason with them. Buy a Lenovo and you will keep paying and paying and paying. Hate to say it, but I may go to Apple….
I have a Lenovo Laptop from Work and I have to say it is amazing.
It is just so fast. i7 processor. Starts up in a matter of seconds.
Speakers give great sound, best I’ve heard on a laptop.
Screen is great also.
Some small annoyances:
– It has no VGA output
– The scrolling is difficult, in a long web page or Word Document for example, as there is no Page Down and no Page Up keys. Instead you have to press a combination of keys, which is impossible with one hand. Other than that the keyboard is good.
– Windows 10 is annoying, but that is a Microsoft problem.
Overall, I’m very happy with it and can recommend Lenovo to anyone!
I bought a IdealPad 110-15ISK laptop and spec wise it has a core i3 6100u 6Gb RAM and a 1TB hard drive.
It runs Windows 10 and my biggest complaint it that for the specs its just plain slow, and the laptop only has a very small single (mono) speaker on bottom edge of laptop.
The keyboard is probably the only positive feature I can say for this laptop. The screen looks like something on a $200 laptop, and the Elan TouchPad is dreadfully inaccurate.
I finally turned off features like pinch zoom on the touchpad because it was so annoying. I have seen better screen quality on a cheap Chromebook, and this laptops screen is so bad it basically ruins the ability to use it for very long it starts to strain your eyes.
I figured battery life had to be pretty good for a core i3 but I think the capacity of the battery is also too little to provide anymore then maybe 4 hours. I almost feel like Lenovo just sat down and figured every way possible to cut corners with this laptop.
I cannot ever remember having a laptop with only one speaker. I also can’t remember a laptop that has a fairly good hardware setup being so pathetically slow.
I feel as if I have a Celeron CPU and not a core i3. I am beginning to think that buying a $400 laptop these days is worse then buying a Chromebook.
If you want a decent laptop your going to have to double that $400 if you want at least some of the basics. Like good screen, decent sounding speakers, a precision touchpad and a fast hard drive, or SSD.
Lenovo customer service is less then helpful and generally give you fruitless tasks to do that will never solve any problems. Like they did with my speaker issue, it wasn’t a driver problem. It was the fact that the speaker is just one and of poor quality and located in a bad place. Might as well not installed a speaker.
My conclusion is that Lenovo thinks very little about design with their cheaper notebook line. Sure, their ThinkPad’s are some of the best notebooks. But steer clear of the consumer line.
I bought a Lenovo 90 DQ with 500 GB hard drive 4GB ram with Intel Pentium and Windows 10 to talk to my wife when she was visiting in China.
I have qq, skype, goggle chrome and vlc media player, I do not run Skype at the same time as qq. The problem is that when I am on qq video chat with my wife, the video freezes on an off or the voice fades away, during qq video chats also will get a pop up note saying the CPU is overloaded and suggest I turn off other programs that are running, never had problems like this with ASUS or DELL.
ALSO I have bought an Lenovo Idea pad 1120 S for travel and not to happy with it!
Lenovo is off my list of electronics to select from. These Lenovos are heading to the recycle bin and I’m headed to purchase a more reliable product soon.
