bought one last woot off. right out of the box, win10 was eating up half the memory. only one slot so i upgraded to 8 gb. that helped out performance quite a bit. the processor seems to be overwhelmed easily, which was shocking for a 1.6 quad-core. even rotating the screen or switching from laptop to tablet mode is slow and glitchy. maybe its because its a celeron. i suspect its due to win10. solid construction for sure though. only a few months in, but its taken a few drops and handled it well. hinges seem to be very strong.
Just a quick, simple question: Is the keyboard on this model backlit?
My Google-fu seems to be failing me, as I can’t find a definitive answer for this specific model.
[MOD: No, this one does not have a backlit keyboard.]
I’ve been looking at the Yoga line for a while. Just for living room recliner browsing, occasional light gaming, and NHL Gamecenter Live viewing. Seems like a good contender. Trigger finger is twitching.
Wow,six comments in and no one has threatened to cut off their mouse because it’s only 1366 x 768.
No, the keyboard is not backlit
Got one of the’s last year during a Woit off, and for the price it is an OK machine, but not great. It is a total memory hog-- don’t expect to open more than 10 browser tabs unless you upgrade. More annoyingly, simply shutting down programs often won’t solve the issue – once it becomes slow as molasses it doesn’t recover without a reboot. The switchover from laptop to tablet and back can be dicey, and a year in I am dealing with a mystery problem whereby the computer…just…freezes. No error message or log, it just simply stops responding to keystrokes or the touch pad or shutting the lid or switching to tab. And then you have to just power down and hope you didn’t have anything important open.
That said, it is light and I still find myself using it, so…?
No back lit keyboard, btw.
I have this and like it. Only complaint is that the touch screen stopped working - I didn’t use it much but it was great fo the calculator since there is no number pad. Anybody have this problem and have a solution?? (I suspect it was one of the updates that killed it)
I bought one last spring with the Celeron N2940 processor and am using it now. The paint has flaked off on the bottom cover panel. Lenovo says it is cosmetic and will not fix under warranty. I did get them to send me a USB stick of the windows 10 replacement media in the event that I ever need to replace the SSD. I upgraded the memory immediately to 8GB which is the max. Touchscreen works but I hardly use it as a tablet. Tablets using android or Apple OS are what a majority of people use not windows app store. There may be an android emulator I could install but I have never looked into it. Solidly built EDU series but have never dropped it “knock on wood” to test how solid. I use it for email, internet surfing, and MS Office. I doubt this computer would be sufficient for hardcore gaming, CAD and/or graphic design programs.
no it is not.
if it wasn’t for the processor id be in after upgrading memory like you did.
Be very, very careful with your warranty begin date on this. I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad last year that came with a 1-yr warranty. I had a problem with it 11 months later and needed a warranty repair. Come to find out, the warranty date began when the vendor on Woot purchased it from Lenovo, NOT when I bought it from Woot. I only had a 10-month warranty.
It took many emails and phone calls to straighten things out but Lenovo customer service eventually granted me the correct warranty expiration date. I was told by Lenovo that Woot is not an authorized seller of their products, thus the headache with trying to get this resolved. It was a major hassle. Buyer beware.
I’m having the same problem with freezing on my wife’s machine that we got last year. Nothing gets logged in the event viewer. I’ve updated all the drivers. I ran all the Lenovo diagnostics and all passed. Ran a full chkdsk and SFC and both passed. At Lenovo’s suggestion I went through the restore procedure and wiped out and restored the OS and it froze again with 12 hours. No patterns on which programs are running when it happens. She is using it for school and does everything on Google docs so she doesn’t lose anything when it happens but still annoying.
Still under warranty though so told Lenovo everything I’d done and they sent a padded shipping box out next day with a next day air return label. Hopefully they’ll figure it out.
Also worth noting that once you get it, if you check the warranty status on Lenovo’s site then you can upgrade the year warranty to up to 4 years for an additonal fee if desired.
There were a couple other posters that said they’d had freezes in the comments on the woot yesterday too.
I’ve had one of these for about 6 months. It’s surprisingly tough and rugged, moreso than any other laptop I’ve had, and nicely portable. It has only 2 USB ports, which can be a hindrance especially if you’re giving one up for a mouse.
I have one of these (that I love, but I have simple needs). No, the keyboard is NOT backlit.
Is this one better or worse than the G2 version i bought just yesterday?
I would gladly pay you tuesday for a notebook PC today.
