"FANTASTIC machine at this price-point"3.5 starson by Psyllicon
Pros: Comprehensive hardware, limited bloatware, all-around Wonderful tool for unassuming starter or basic, mobile use (far beyond what a Tablet can offer)
Cons: apparently there is an issue with the screws in the chassis -- be aware of the possibility and be attuned to the issue should your system also start to lose screws. This could be crippling if you don't keep an eye out and correct the issue in time.
Summary: No remorse having purchased the Lenovo -- and I've still got my eye open for them the next time around. I've learned that there can be potentially devastating shortcomings in the assembly process of even these systems though. Be aware and be prepared to use loctite ~!NOTE: that review was written approx 5 mo's after purchase.. and the 'screw issue' was already starting. After the 6mo point, things got pretty ugly pretty fast.

Do yourself a favor before you even consider a Lenovo -- Google the terms "G570 screws"
There are an AMAZING number of people who have had this issue (and other issues much more severe) and feel that Lenovo has not offered sufficient support.
