To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Battery life is only 4hrs. The specs are good though, and the 1tb SSD and 32gb ram are legit. The ram speed is 2.6GHz, which is decent. The SSD is a SATA SSD. The display is dim. Doesn't come with McAfee or Microsoft Office.
I bought this laptop so I could work at places other than my office. My more device-savvy kid picked the laptop and the specs, so if you’re looking for a technical review, this isn’t it. I’m running Office in whatever version they’re calling it these days. 365? My bread & butter is running QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) and that program can be a bit of a resource hog. My new ThinPad has handled it beautifully. I liked that I could add the Lenovo app and customize my settings even more than what windows offers. This laptop is super light and thin - she’s practically a supermodel. I love that I can toggle a slide and a red dot shows me the camera is closed. The slide is a little hard to see because it’s black in black so I took a metallic silver sharpie and marked it. Problem solved. I like the feel of the 10-key, but I have smaller hands. Someone with larger hands might not find it roomy enough. The matte surface is pretty, but it definitely shows fingerprints. I was cleaning the cover pretty much daily. That got old quick so I got a cute skin. Always a work around. Keep in mind, I’m not an expert, I’m an end user and I think this laptop will do nicely. When the box arrived the charger was missing. I immediately emailed the seller and they sent one right out. Mistakes happen, but they were very responsive.
Bought this computer for personal use, No Gaming, No Video watching, Just for internet access, occasional Word and Excel use. Within the first hour of use, I got an error message " Critical Process Died" message, and everything froze up. Had to turn the computer off and restart which cleared the message and allowed me to use it again. Now I can't run for more than an hour without it CRASHING again and again with the same error message. After searching the web for user blogs, I found that this problem has been around for years with Lenovo products. I am returning this Lenovo Thinkpad E15, but come to find out I will be charged a 20% restocking fee for something that hasn't worked properly out of the box. What a SCAM industry, BUYER BEWARE!!!!!
My order arrived on time and was undamaged. Great purchase, had no issues with upgrades or connection to wifi. I was able to immediately use the Thinkpad, missing the longer battery life. The computer starts quickly and was able to download 57MB in a few minutes. Note it's a bit older so not an intel Core i7 or fingerprint unlock functionality. Otherwise, it's a pretty decent purchase for business computer.
I got this computer specifically for the keyboard. 4 months into it, the bracket breaks on my "k" key. It's under waranty, so Lenovo will fix it, but it will take 3+ weeks and I won't be able to wor. I can't get a loaner, because I didn't purchase the laptop directly from Lenovo, so I have no way to mae a claim. It's pretty frustrating. Outside of an obscenely long repair job from the manufacturer, the seller who purchased it (Issaquah Highlands Tech) from Lenovo is washing their hands because it lasted more than a month (lol) which is the minimum that amazon requires (lol). So I would avoid using this seller, and I would advise considering buying directly from the manufacturer purchases like these. This is my second Lenovo, the first being a Yoga 910 that lasted many years. The eyboard on this one lasted 4 months, and that's specifically why I got it. Pretty frustrating to say the least.
Also, the camera is very low quality, the screen is not very bright at certain angles, and while the layout of the keys is very nice, the quality of the eyboard is questionable at best. If I could do it over, I would definitely not have chosen this computer or this seller.
This experience has been great so far. My laptop arrived quickly. Set up was simple. This is my first Lenovo and so far it has exceeded my expectations and one the best laptops I have had. I especially like the keyboard; it is very comfortable to use. Only feature not a 5 is the display which seems faded and murky but I am accustomed to using gaming laptops so that may account for it. So far, so good. I have had it for 2 weeks.
I purchased (& paid more) for the Thinkpad mainly for it's keyboard. Silly, I know, but many laptops have horrible flat keys. I LOVE my Thinkpad!! I was extra impressed it didn't come with all the extra trial software you get when you pick one up at a big box retailer!
