Not bad for the money.

Strengths of the product

-It's a good CPU and GPU for the money. Definitely better then one of those anemic Intel Atom's or last generation AMD processors. Processor keeps up with Intel i5-7200u, while having better GPU performance. -Seems durable enough. -Get it if it's on sale for $450 or lower.

Weaknesses of the product

-4GBb RAM isn't enough for modern games, and it's single channel. According to the manual it can be upgraded, but you have to remove your old 4GB stick and buy another 8GB one. Can't just buy another 4GB and have dual channel, which would speed up the graphics too. -No SSD. So if you're used to those fast startup speeds of solid state drive computers, you might be disappointed. -no DVD drive.

Additional Comments

There really isn't any better you can find for this price. People seem to expect $800 performance from a $450 laptop. If you just want to browse the web, and do some minor gaming on older games, this isn't a bad deal.

Great Laptop for the Price

Strengths of the product

My Lenovo V330 (i3) booted up quickly and without problem on first time set-up. Has no problem completing everyday work and school tasks. Have not lost a wifi connection once. It's sleek, amazingly light and has a great battery life as well as an additional port to add a secondary battery if you so desire. There are two USB ports, a headphone jack, SD card reader, an HDMI and VGA port among others. In addition, it has a comfortable keyboard and a built-in webcam cover. Has a year manufacturer's warranty and a 15 day return policy with undamaged packaging. Overall a solid buy for a student or professional looking for a portable, sleek laptop for a decent price.

Weaknesses of the product

The track pad requires a fairly hard click to register, but I use a wireless mouse so it's not really an issue. I have read that others found the chassis slightly flexible but to me it feels quite solid.

Additional Comments

I don't know much about computers, but from researching this is one of the best "bang for your buck" laptops in the $500 price range that I could find. It is a comfortable, light computer with a sleek look and feel. It gets my everyday work and school tasks done with ease.

Strengths of the product

I bought mine on Black Friday as my old Lenovo took one too many bounce tests. It's a $400 - $450.00 Window 10 laptop so don't expect it to perform as an 8th Gen i7 processor. that would be like comparing a Hyundai Accent to a Ferrari Enzo. It does the job. Streaming video works on 1080 resolution full screen with no video stutter. Dolby Audio is good. Strengths: Ryzen 3 2200U 64 Bit processor. 8 GB RAM 1 TB Hard Drive 15.6 " 1366 x 768 resolution Screen Windows 10 - 64 Bit Home edition. 1 x USB C connector 2 x USB - 2.0 Ports 802.11 AC Wi-Fi Networking Dolby Audio Battery Life is good, not great. For someone who is looking for decent internet basic laptop this product is really hard to beat for the price.

Weaknesses of the product

Would have liked to see one more USB - type A connector. Lenovo changed the AC power connector port, so if you have other Lenovo devices you can't exchange AC Adapters. This is a Lenovo fault not related to build quality, but once the device sets up it register's itself with Lenovo and it's difficult to get Lenovo to extend the actual in use warranty. To paraphrase a client of mine... "The other end appears to employ script monkeys so don't expect a lot of help..."

Additional Comments

I'm actually happy with my purchase. It works, its a basic laptop so don't expect to do any major gaming on it. The backup did take about 2 hours to run. You can go to www.majorgeeks.com and run TRONscript to remove the bloatware from windows; but all laptops ship with bloatware. I would have given it 5 Stars but having dealt with Lenovo tech about the registration date vs actual installation date was a major headache. It was a Christmas present , but Lenovo's technical support couldn't understand why anyone would want to setup up a laptop prior to Christmas. Last thing I want do on Christmas is to mess around setting up a new laptop. This cost Lenovo 1* from a otherwise 5* rating.

Don't purchase this laptop.

Strengths of the product

looks sleek, thin & light enough, feels solidly built.

Weaknesses of the product

- Starting up was slow, not all bloatware could be removed (that's a Windows / Lenovo problem, not this model in particular.) - Immediately after using the laptop for the first time, there was a bunch of system and BIOS updates. One of them completely messed with the BIOS and disabled all network adapters, so that no wifi connection could be established. Took a lot of googling to fix. - The device is slow. Logging in takes a good 30 seconds (and that's on a fresh system on day one), as does opening up a single tab on Chrome from idle. - Tried to create a Windows recovery USB just to be safe -- aborted mission after about 1.5 hours, as it was still only 2/3 of the way done. - At this point, the machine was not able to hold on to a wifi connection (that no other devices in the house have troubles with) for more than ten seconds.

Additional Comments

I am absolutely not thrilled with this product, one of the worst laptops I have purchased in my life. I didn't need a crazy strong gaming rig, but I did want something that could do some multitasking and maybe even some statistical modelling in a pinch. This laptop is very nearly useless and I will be returning it.
