My husband and I just purchased this Lenovo Ideapad about ten days ago. It was an adjustment at first, because the touch and feel of it was so very different from our old Dell, but it is really a nice computer. It is compact and lightweight, very easy to transport or carry around. Yet it is not too small to operate. The computer itself is easy to use and figure out. It seems well constructed, and it runs quickly. The operating system we have on our computer is not at all easy to figure out, but the computer itself is quite user friendly. The mouse is very sensitive, so that takes some getting used to, as does the touch screen. But I have found it nice to have both options. Even my 5 and 7 year old were able to use this computer and operate it smoothly, so you know it isn't too complicated! The battery life is vey satisfactory, usually lasting even longer than the computer itself estimates. Thus far we are happy with this computer, and the price was right too.
