        Love the light-weight and the lighted keyboard, gonna take the savings from buying a macbook and going on a cruise!!!
        While the new windows format takes a while to get used to, if you are familiar with android mobile phone formats, the transition is easier.

          Comments about Lenovo IdeaPad U510 15.6" Ultrabook Computer (Gray):

          I use the laptop for typing class notes in college but it is a bit heavy to carry around. Windows 8 took a bit of time getting used to, but i usually only use the desktop anyway. The only thing bad about this laptop is the touch pad driver. Although synaptic touchpad driver has many useful functions, it would automatically stop working after a while. The touchpad would still work but you wouldn't be able to use shortcuts such as using two fingers for scrolling. Only restarting would fix it and it gets a bit frustrating. I tried re installing the driver but the problem was still there, but I think it is a problem with the driver and not the laptop itself. Oh, and be warned that the laptop starts obnoxiously beeping loudly every few seconds when the batter is low. The first time it happened I had my earphone on ._. Overall I would recommend this laptop. It's not too heavy considering the screen size, fast and sleek.

          I am a doctoral student in an applied science field, so I do lots of writing and data analysis. This laptop is extremely fast. The i7 processor and the 8 gb of RAM make multitasking a breeze. Running high CPU usage programs like Gimp (image manipulation) and statistical programs like SPSS does not phase it. The back lit keyboard is very nice. The computer has a very sleek look (similar to a macbook pro). Windows 8 is definitely tricky to get used to, but once you figure it out it is very easy to use. The only think I don't like about this laptop is the mouse. It is a bit finicky with the cursor jumping all over the place at times.
