I have only had this laptop for about a month, but so far, it has been great. It is not dainty by any stretch of the imagination. It is actually huge for a 15.6 laptop, both in terms of length, width, and depth. It is also heavy. The charger is big too...and heavy. It is not particularly pretty, at best we can say it has classic good looks. so why did I give it 5 stars? Because I don't care about any of that. This is my desktop replacement and it is perfect in that capacity. It is very fast, feels solid, has 4 USB ports including 2 3.0 ports which is great considering I have a 1 TB external drive plugged in to it. I plug in an external mouse, keyboard, 24" monitor and printer. The external video port (forgot the name of it) is a great alternative to VGA. I bought a cord that goes from that to HDMI for my monitor. Also, with the size you get a full size keyboard, a DVD writer, and all the ports you could ask for. Lastly, it came with Windows 7 Pro instead of Windows 10 which is an annoying disaster of an O/S in my opinion. About the same time this arrived, my wife received a replacement laptop from her company which was also an Lenovo. It was one of the dainty, convertibles with touch screen and light. I mean polar opposite of this laptop. So if that is your thing, you have options, but you will be giving up performance as well as other key items. After using a computer with 16gb RAM, I will never go back.
I purchased this laptop to replace a windows 7 machine and it has been a great replacement. Faster than former laptop with 12 GB of memory and streams video really well. Lacks an HDMI output, which is odd and unexpected, and battery life is predictably mediocre, but performance is otherwise very good. Can't tell that it's a referbished item.
According to the UPS tracking number, it was supposed to be delivered on Dec 6 and was not. Then it was supposed to be delivered on Dec 7 and it was not. Now, it's suppose to be delivered on Dec 8. I'll change the rating if/when I ever receive the laptop. Laptop arrived on Dec 10. Perhaps this was my mistake. I assumed since it included Windows 10 it also included Microsoft Office, but it doesn't, so now I have to spend *** to purchase Office. Had I known this, I would not have purchased the laptop. But otherwise, it appears to work fine. I just don't think it's a good deal at that price.
