Usually when you get a laptop for this price you expect the laptop to be a little on the slower side especially since most laptops today have 16 GB of memory. This laptop comes with 8 GB of memory soldered in and the laptop will accept another 8 GB of memory which is on order. This is surprisingly fast for only 8 gigs of memory. I had no issues with downloads, apps watching movies or downloading about 250 gb of data from my one drive. The laptop boots up in about 20 seconds. Really does not need anything else for my use. Might not be enough for gaming but should be kind of decent. My one big complaint about this laptop is the touch panel and keyboard is off center, they did this to put in a number pad which is nice feature. The problem is that on the touch pad while I am trying to click on the item, I keep on right clicking on the item. Also, when I put my hands on the keyboard, I sometimes am off by one position and have to reset my hand. I am sure I will overcome the keyboard but the touchpad I am having a hard time with. So, besides the 8GB of memory ordered I ordered a 1 TB SSD drive. I hate one drive I am old schooled I love having items on my computer and being fast. One drive is very clunky but is very usefull for not loosing data when the hard drive goes or for this instance when I got a new computer. It was painless to transfer everything over. For wifi connectivity the router is upstairs and I am in the room directly below and getting speeds of 400 MBPS which is really fast. Sitting next to the router I have hit average speed of 639 download and peak of just over 700 using Speedtest. My MacBook is not even doing that. The laptop is really light and feels just a touch flimsy there is almost no flex in the base part and screen does not flex opening and closing. If you grab both ends of the top of the screen you can get it to flex. Not a deal breaker at this price point and I really love the laptop. I have had a Dell and also an HP laptop at this price point in the past and was alway disappointed and by upgrading was happy. This one many years later which should be costing several hundred dollars more due to inflation but got at the same price as both of them ($500) is quite the bargain. I did not get to test other laptops at this price point but I know this is quite a deal. You will not be disappointed and even though I ordered more memory and a bigger SSD the laptop is pretty good just the way it is. I will upgrade to see if I see any more improvements in speed with the RAM. It never hurts to have more. Bonus this has Windows 11 Pro.

I got this on Prime Day as a backup/secondary laptop. When I received it, I wanted to give it a good, solid test run, so I used only this laptop for everything I did for about three weeks. I found it to be surprisingly fast and I had no problems at all running my usual stuff--many tabs open in Chrome, Word, streaming video, email, music, etc. The screen is average/above-average. The keyboard is quite nice to type on! The trackpad is okay, but I did have some irritating moments where it wasn't always as responsive as I needed it to be. The battery life, sadly, was sub par for me. Even keeping the screen brightness turned down to no more than middle of the road, I couldn't really get much more than 3 or maaaaaybe 4 hours. I tinkered with settings to try to help the issue, but in this day and age, I feel like I shouldn't have to reduce everything to the bare, bare minimum to squeeze out 4 hours of battery life. Not when I can get a full day of use on my other laptops without charging. I did have some Windows 11 glitches with it (several times it wouldn't let me log-in with fingerprint but it also wouldn't let me log in with my pin either and I'd have to reboot), but that's par for the course and hopefully as updates come out, those will be corrected. And that's operating system stuff, not a hardware issue. I'm only pointing it out for people who might be buying this laptop for someone who would find issues like that particularly frustrating. If you need a solid laptop for light use, you're not going to be too mobile with it, and it'll be mainly plugged in, this is a decent everyday budget laptop. If you need something with more robust battery life, however, this may not be the best choice for you.

This computer was bought by my parents as a gift for me, as my school required us to have a laptop, but then suddenly at the open house they said that our computers would most likely not work w the wifi and that the school was gonna provide us w laptops. I thought this was really stupid, but bcs of this I got to use the laptop for personal use, like games etc.. And it works wonders, it loads genshin impact perfectly as well as Roblox, league and final fantasy 14, my only problem now is that for some reason it will start to suddenly disconnect from the internet, but other than that its perfect.

Just bought this for my mom! She loves it! She is an awesome childbirth educator and has created a self paced online All-in-One prenatal course for pregnant and new moms. She will be using the Lenovo to: make more online courses, for posting videos on her You Tube channel - Humsa Prenatals, for social media, promotion and marketing of her courses, and for her website Humsa Prenatals dot com. She says that the screen is clear and wide, loves the key board, she was able to connect it to an external LG monitor with a HDMI cable. She just wishes there were more ports. She is using one port for a Logitech unifying receiver, that leaves only one port for her USB drive. She would have to buy a Multi port hub. She loves the sleek appearance. The grey silver color is pleasing to the eye. The keys are visible. The base got heated up hence she has put it up on plastic lids so that it is elevated. That helped. The webcam can be hidden by just moving a slider, what a relief! All in all, a good buy. She hopes it will last her for years to come.

Great overall laptop, powerful chip,nice screen, but not that bright (will be enough for indoor usage) battery is ok` will be enough for 2-3 movies pretty good build quality, great keyboard. I bought this for 379$ on prime day , for that amount of money this is a steal. The one and only major downside of this laptop are the speakers , they sound ok but not loud and no bass. But overall for the amount I paid for this `it is a beast. For working , casual use don't even think ` get this laptop. And the Ryzen 5500u with radeon vega graphics allows to play even triple A titles (of course on lowest possible settings) and for Cs , Valorant ,Minecraft and for many other low end games this thing rocks.
