Decent for price, but battery life is a major issue going by the specs. That's if they are accurate ofcourse.

Looking for a Yoga 300, hoping to see one at a decent price.

I had a budget Lenovo for a year and a few months...
Then just stopped booting and would only occasionally do so every dozen attempts or so.
Told it will cost more than I paid (£189.99) to replace the motherboard!
Heard many other problems with budget Lenovos.
Poor quality brand, avoid...

I had one which saw light use and some keys on the keyboard became u/s after 14 months. I took it to a local (reputable) repaired who told me that these are awfully time consuming to replace and the only alternative was to buy a complete palm rest with keyboard but they were £150... not worth it so just made do with a usb keyboard.

Good price, normally about £249

I've got a Lenovo g550 must be around 10 years old, never really had many problems with it, it's a bit slow last few years but probably just needs hard drive cleaning /deleting etc, think I seen it on here if remember correctly! Might go for this laptop!

Think they're still rated as the best for touch typing.
I use older Dells and have had experience of newer machines, but they're just dreadful for typing on.
Almost everyone agrees older Lenovo's (think it's x220) were the best for typists, but I haven't been able to locate a decent one as yet.

1366 x 768 on a 15.6" screen?


No, no, nooo..............

TN panel as well and both combined make this a dealbreaker.

COLD.

They got rid of the original (brilliant) Thinkpad keyboards ages ago. These budget Lenovos now have really poor rubber domed keyswitches which are rubbish.

At this (budget) end of the market, you'd be better off looking at one of these instead.

CPU is comparable, the screen is much better, the eMMC is much faster than the slow 5400rpm mechanical drive in the Lenovo, and you also have an M.2 slot for SSDs. If you need big storage at low cost, just plug in an external HDD via USB3.0.

The Lenovo is almost obsolete. At least, this will give you many years of decent use for basic tasks without you getting frustrated with a low res screen and wasting hours of your life waiting for that HDD to spin up.

Good price and decent basic spec. I bough the dell inspiron 15 that was sub 200 pound on here in 2014, it has a lower spec processor (n3050 i think) and it works well still. Though i recently reformatted it and put Win 7 on it instead of 8.1. I am still suspicious of 10, but this is a hot deal. As for Lenovo being a bad brand, well it is a bit of a pointless debate. Some Lenovos might use substandard hardware or have awful bloatware, but the same can be said of Dell and Toshiba. Do your homework, uninstall any rubbish you dont need, look after it, and dont expect it to perform like a 600 pound machine. It will probs do you fine as a browser, old school emulator, old school games, word processor, kodi machine.

The last good Lenovo ever produced was the X220 and I think it was 7 years ago.

I think these people who find it to be very slow are experiencing a common problem where hardware interrupts are eating up a load of cpu cycles due to some bad driver settings. This can be fixed by running Device Manager, expanding the IDE controllers section and Uninstalling every entry that appears there, then rebooting. These drivers will then get reinstalled with the correct settings and the problem should be fixed.

£199 still overpriced for the spec imo.

If that's what you're doing, 1TB hard drive, nor even Windows itself, is necessary. Could probably get away with a Chromebook for a few dollars more and have it actually perform like a 600 machine.

At any rate, I suspect virtually everybody would regret this particular laptop.

We got the 310 model from John Lewis last year, luckily with a 2 year warranty which we need to use. Seriously not impressed, battery life is poor at about 2 hours, keyboard has annoying habit of typing characters twice...real pain when entering ****passwords..., USB & memory card ports playing up by stopping & then restarting. Won't be buying another budget Lenovo

Yes indeed.
I've used a number of £200-£250 laptops over the years, but just found Lenovo to be extremely budget quality build and longevity.
Google it too, they all suffer similar problems and their customer support is poor.

I don't rate many of their 'mid to high end' laptops either. They're 'okay' but build quality and components choices are relatively poor. I have a Y50 series laptop for example that originally retailed at around £1,000. The screen is crap, the keyboard is crap, trackpad is abysmal, the SSHD has a known high failure rate etc. Even after 2.5 years of use, the plastic around the screen hinges is beginning to crack. No way do they have top end build quality of the IBM laptops from yesteryear. Everything screams 'cutting corners' on costs. Macbooks blow these Lenovos into the weeds in terms of build quality and quality of finish.

The problem is that most buyers are pretty dumb and don't consider this sort of stuff. They just look out for 'megalpixels' or low price without properly understanding the product (it makes no sense that this deal is reaching 600C for example when the laptop itself is a bit of a dog).

I think you would be far better off with this one with a 128Gb SSD, and use a portable HDD for extra storage.

I purchased a Yoga 700 for £340 last year which I was happy with. I used it for web browsing and Office work, nothing demanding. However, the motherboard died after just 370 days.

I would never purchase a Lenovo laptop/notebook again....
...unless it was ridiculously cheap, of course!

Be warned.

Yeah the IBM Thinkpads manufactured by Lenovo had the best keyboards bar none.

370 days? No reason why you can't still claim against the retailer under the sale of goods legislation.

6Decent enough, but bear in mind that these chips are really from the Atom stable.
The 6 wattts average is via throttling the CPU a lot.

I guesd the low battery life is OK in that we can now safely assume laptops are for desk use only, tablets and phablets dominating none desk use

"The benchmark scores obtained were quite modest, with Cinebench R15 giving 142 points and 3D Mark Skydiver gave 1238 points which is the lowest score we have obtained on a laptop tested in the last couple of years. Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 gave an acceptable 102 MB/s for sequential read speeds and 104 MB/s for sequential write."

Budget laptops from most manufacturers are poor quality,
they have to cur corners to sell devices that cheap,
and they are not designed to be repaired either
(cases/components clip/glued together even)

Different with business style laptops which are expected to un 8 hours a day for 4 years.
Way more expensive but these devices last and keyboards can easily be replaced.

WTF are you babbling on about???

Laptops are designed to be portable. You'd be screwed if try to take this to a conference or meeting somewhere as it won't get you through even half a day, let alone a full day.

"Up to 3 hours battery life" is nothing short of ridiculous, given that real world battery life is likely to be less and reduced even further as the battery wear.

An outdoor meeting, or are you simply too soft to seek a plug socket? Anyway, have you not heard of external battery packs suitable for one offs?

As to the comment on budget laptops being none repairable, the high end ones can be worse, Surface recently being singled out for strong criticism.
