Does the job, mostly

I needed a laptop for composing when my last Lenovo died after only a year, catastrophically and with no warning. This fit my budget. Two problems: The speakers are insufficient for being heard on Zoom calls, and I'm told the picture is fuzzy as well. One minor annoyance is the ubiquitous Lenovo popups trying to sell me stuff.

Nice computer. Boots up quickly and always seems to run cool never hot. Great display and good battery life. What else do you need in a laptop?

STOP-DO NOT BUY A LENOVO-Buy any other brand please

At exactly 6 months, the power supply connector center pin broke off making the computer inoperable. After shipping it off to Lenovo for repair, it was determined that it was our fault and they would not cover it, but would repair the computer for $450, a little more than we paid for it. My husband is in IT and has been for over 30 years. Our family has owned numerous computers, desktops and laptops, and have never had a complete failure of a computer ever. They usually last us at least 5 years. My husband says the design flaw is that a tiny connector is used to connect the power, and is weak and cannot stand up to normal use. Most modern laptops have both a standard power connector and also USB charging capability, so when the tiny connector breaks from NORMAL USE, you will have a non-functioning computer.

Great laptop

I don't understand fingerprint readers. Concerned that a cut, band aid, etc will prevent being able to log on. Is there away to turn off this feature?
Asked by: Connie
Logging in with a fingerprint or other biometric methods is completely optional, it is something you can choose to setup or never use if you prefer not to. You will always have the choice to stick with a regular password if you would not like to set up biometrics on your device.
