I'll come straight to the point.Pro:- Matte Finish on the screen, makes it easier to work overall.- Keys are spread out well and comfortable for most part and has a comforting click to it which isn't too loud for silent areas.- TrackPad is good and responsive. I'm coming from a water drowned Mac Book Pro, there is no comparison Apple's Track pad and this, they are worlds apart specially the software part.- Battery life is quite decent. Lasts 5 Hours for normal office work and maybe 4 - 4.5 hours for media and lesser for games.Con:- No keyboard backlight. Which is a bummer.- No CD / DVD Drive. I was in a hurry to buy a new laptop so didn't pay attention to this. Got an Asus External DVD Drive. Considering most of us are off CD DVDs it's no deal breaker.- No OS loaded so you better be ready with a working bootable Linux USB.- Screen is bluish. And has absurd contrast. So it's a no-no for Media Editors.- Only 4 GB Ram. for the price I'm reasonably expectant of atleast 8 GB.That's all folks !
Pros:1. Lightweight2. Sturdy3. Well spaced keys4. Good processor5. Fingerprint scanner really good6. Camera quality good7. Feature rich8. Dolby Digital Sound9. Best battery quality (easily last 7-8 hours if you watch only movie in average brightness)Cons:1. Not good for gaming because of low dedicated graphics2. Slightly overpriced3. Ram should have been 8gb instead of 4gb
Bought this from lenovo offline store. i cant trust online retailers.This is the best laptop. Screen is not flimsy like that of dell latitude or vostro series.Disk utilisation goes high many times. But this is the case with every other laptop these days. Therefore, replace disk with ssd. Also, do increase ram to 8gb or 16gb.Pros :-Best matt screenKeyboardLess weightSolid buildSilent fanCons:-Yet to find any
Waste of money, very slow. Wifi issue is there as well.
Hi,By the name "Thinkpad" i got deceived.Only Cons i will list as many are there for writing its Pro.1. Excessive heating as there are not any Ventilations vents on the side, they are only beneath the laptop(which generally gets covered by the table) therefore making it to heat.2. My system was sluggish, slow n hangs from the Day 1 only(100% Disk Utilization).Took the help of technical team, they were not able to resolve the sluggishness(made me to reinstall win10 many times but still problem didnt resolve). Finally somehow they said there might be some issue with HDD.After replacing the HDD, issue is still not resolved. Moreover the replacement HDD was even slower n was heating excessivly n has got higher amperage to work than the factory fitted HDD so sent back the replacement HDD. Engineers cannot do the actual diagnosis n cannot find out the actual reason . They have tried changing all setting with system,bios,disabling services, virtual mem,regedit n many more but cannot trace out the actual reason for its slowness(100%) disk utilizations on idle mode coz of this you cannot work on system, it hangs badly.3. Lenovo support is big time riddle, u try to keep on solving it n it will become more complicated.Therefore cannot expect quality service from them.4. Material used is Matte but it catches fingerprints everywhere so nicely tht u need to sit with a cleaning cloth evertym n its slippery too.This was not my expectations from the Thinkpad i5, 7th gen.Note- If there is anyone interested in buying it pls let me know, its with 2 yrs ONSITE extended warranty. Totally 3 years including Onsite+Base Warranty n valid till March,2020.
