  Best bang for your buck in 2018!

Pros: I just brought this for my son (9 years old) and will update this if anything changes. So far I found the computer great. It didn’t come with too much bloat wear, and there’s plenty of room to install games still. I ran Hearthstone and Overwatch on it and both look good and neither show any signs of lag or low FPS.

Pros: I needed a new working laptop and I like Lenovo's models in general. This laptop does the job just right as the CPU is pretty fast and I have no memory issues. The laptop has a nice keyboard and it is light enough for me to carry without feeling it heavy. The price is great and the packaging was very very nice since I can see it being protected well. I received it in excellent condition.

  Love it! Use it mainly for writing and research

Pros: Absolute work horse of a laptop. I have spent an average of 5 hours a day on it, and it had kept up with everything I need. The display is absolutely gorgeous and makes watching videos a dream. The speakers are better than any laptops I've had, and makes it clear to hear anything you are playing.

Laptop rarely gets hot, the battery is pretty long lasting, and the form factor is just amazing and light. Only complaint I would have isn fingerprint sensor is very small and often requires a retry to unlock using finger print.

  Fast, efficient, powerful, and quiet!

Pros: Wow. I bought this computer because I’m teaching myself web development, and I wanted a computer that was dedicated just for coding. Some tech website had this computer as the editor’s choice for best coding/programming computer of 2018, and man - I’m glad I bought this!

I’m not used to a computer starting up and being ready to use within less than a minute, but this one is FAST. I went ahead and uninstalled a lot of software programs I’ll never use, but I’ve also downloaded a code editor and some code libraries. This thing is blazing fast and EXTREMELY quiet. Sometimes I get concerned and think something is wrong but I’m just impressed at how quiet this machine runs.

I’d definitely recommend this computer to anyone who wants a fast, efficient, and powerful laptop for writing code or web applications. I’m not certain how it is for gaming since I won’t use it for that. But as a business computer it’s incredible!

  Incredible laptop - full package, great price

Pros: I have been beyond pleased with this laptop purchase over the last 2 months of use. I can certainly say this is the best laptop I've ever had (but then again I've only had 3, and you would expect these things to improve over time, right). I purchased the Lenovo Ideapad 520 laptop with 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8550U, GeForce MX150, 8GB RAM Memory, and 256GB SSD. I highly recommend this laptop for anyone looking for a great performing machine with an outstanding price (just to be clear, it won't be running the newest high-end games on ultra-high graphics settings, but it still performs phenomenally for its price range and usage category).

  Exceeds our expectations as a gaming laptop

Pros: My son loves this laptop! I bought it for his online homeschooling because his other laptop stopped working. Instead of just buying one for his education, I wanted a gaming laptop so that he could play games on it as well especially during the summer. He and my other son can play against each other as we have a gaming computer as well and this laptop keeps up with the gaming computer even on wifi. Great purchase!

  IT IS AWESOME. It arrived on time and in great condition

Pros: I've had this laptop for just over 6 weeks. IT IS AWESOME. It arrived on time and in great condition, evetech style. My wife and I both use it. I got it mainly to do android app development, and let me tell you, it's worth more than it's price. The most amazing this about it is it boots up in about 5 seconds max, sometimes faster and once its started, you can start working right away.

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great performing laptop.
