Lenovo ecoupon : Now honestly I’d give it a 4.5 but Amazon doesn’t have that option, it isn’t a perfect laptop but does have mostly positive attributes and is probably one of the best choices in this price range. There are a few flaws, as any cheap laptop will have but overall, and for the price (~$500), it is a bargain.
-It is fast: 5th gen i5 processor, 7200 rpm HDD (most computers in this price range have a 5400)
-Runs cool so far (and from reviews I’ve seen there aren’t too many problems with newer Lenovo’s after their overheat problems of a couple years ago and never any serious problems with the E550 model). I have ran the computer as much as 6 hours and the vent is putting out basically room temp air, only slightly warmer. It does have a vent on the side and some at the bottom so I’d assume it will remain pretty cool. I run the computer at max performance and it usually runs at around 40C during my average use, my max has been 58C which is a good low heat for a 105C max processor and an improvement over my other laptop (which hit 80C frequently). Vents do run fairly quiet as well.
-Number pad, because it is a larger laptop, with nice solid keys which have nice spacing between them. However, I am not a fan of the closeness of some buttons such as the arrow keys and home/end buttons. Hitting a couple of these at once is a common problem for me.
-Nice screen, HD. Also has a webcam (which I haven’t tried)
-Windows 7 (which is a great OS even if its old) and you could to upgrade to 10
-Speakers seem adequate, definitely just laptop grade but they are usable
-Finger print reader (although I haven’t tried it yet)
-Software: doesn’t have a ton of bloatware. I do like the battery power manager which is in your lower toolbar that easily lets you see your battery % or time left and opening the program lets you change all your battery settings (which will be easier for most people who don’t understand how to do this in the control panel)
-Removable battery! Which is very rare in cheap laptops nowadays and was a big selling point for me. Other laptops with nonremovable batteries will likely die in a few years leaving you with: 1) a couple hour project to deal with that can be a headache, 2) couple hundred dollar bill from a computer repair shop, 3) or you buying a new $500+ laptop. I think having a removable battery is largely convenient since I use my laptop sitting at a desk but need it in different places so I can remove it after moving from one place to another. This way I don’t destroy the battery charging and uncharging it constantly.
-Battery life has been good for me so far. I haven’t used it much, I usually leave the battery removed and leave the computer plugged in unless I need to move.
-Inputs/Outputs: has all the ones you need. Has 3 USB’s with 3.0s (2 of the 3) and a 2.0, ethernet port, HDMI, headphone jack, SD card slot, and CD (which laptops are starting not to include lately)
-Looks, now I know most laptops aren’t made to look good but this solid grey is just so boring. Now to extend off of this, it does seem to be sturdily built. Obviously you can’t throw it down a flight of stairs but the construction does seem pretty strong for the average laptop. Only flimsiness would be the CD drive, which when open, does feel a bit cheap and could break.
-Roughness: I wish they used a different material for the hand rest area (next to the touchpad) it is definitely not the most comfortable. UPDATE: after owning this for a few weeks I have adjusted to the feeling of the material, it really never was unbearable, just not the greatest material decision in my opinion.
-Touchpad: out of anything this is the biggest con of this laptop. It seems like it has a mind of its own, sometimes jumping wherever. It is terrible at reacting to my clicks and sometimes motions. Even after turning of the “right click” option it still tries to right click sometimes. From research this is normal for cheap laptops though. I have not been able to adjust to the red center little touchpad yet. This little red piece often gets in my way and I frequently accidentally hit it when typing. I have been using a mouse instead. I still frequently have touched the red pad and normal touchpad a few times while typing. They are kind of in the way sometimes.
-Low RAM: This is definitely the worst hardware idea Lenovo had when building the laptop, but probably why it is in the $500 range. While this hasn’t hindered my use yet, and probably won’t for the average user, it still is a little bit low for a computer of this price range. I plan on dealing with the current RAM until my year warranty is up since it hasn’t hurt my performance yet. It only has 4GB, but it is expandable to up to 16GB thankfully. I will likely upgrade to 8GB which is more typical of laptops with these hardware specs. With this being said it doesn’t use much more than 1.5GB at idle so this leaves enough extra to handle most average tasks. Upgrading RAM is inexpensive, about $50 to get 8GB for this machine, so this is easily and cheaply remedied. Many people have said the upgrade is easy, although I haven’t looked yet.
-Lights: this is just personal preference, but I dislike the lights everywhere on the computer, although they aren’t too bright or distracting. The “i” in the thinkpad logo lights up on both the back of the lid and below the keypad, when you mute the computer the Fn key for that lights up, and my Fn key is always lit up. This is just a waste of battery power in my opinion.
-Warranty: I did notice on the “Lenovo Solution Center” that the warranty is not telling me it is active. I contacted Lenovo today about this and will update. UPDATE: Lenovo customer service was helpful, not the fastest (emailed Friday afternoon, didn’t get a response until Monday, but did quickly respond to me thereafter), but did assure me that I had my warranty for a full year simply with me giving some basic information about the computer. So I would no longer list this as a con and would say their customer service is adequate.
-Wifi: I have began having intermittent problems with the wifi disconnecting. Usually it will quickly reconnect but still is an inconvenience. None of my other devices do this and this even happens if it is the only device using the internet so it is something to do with the laptop.
So in conclusion, this laptop does have some flaws (and I did nitpick with some) but they are easily fixed with a few cheap items/upgrades. I think this will be a good running laptop for anyone who just does average computing and can last them years with little to no problems. With RAM, (hybrid) SSD upgrades you could easily make this laptop last many years with only needing maybe a cleaning and a battery. I am very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend. The E550 is definitely one of the better choices in the $500 and under laptop market.
