Damn slow and frustrating
I have another Asus, much cheaper laptop and it performs better than this Lenovo!!. Takes so long to start up, slow to process web pages, can't handle music production and the battery life is only about 2 hours. Lots of problems processing stuff. For around $800, I would have expected better performance. One of the worst laptops I have owned.
Purchased in September 2016 for $800.00.
This was purchased in late 2016 and ever since I have regretted not checking the reviews prior. My base requirement is that I am able to run with a minimum of 15 browser tabs at one time. This has difficulty managing more than 5. I have installed no additional software on this latop
Early this month it started having further difficulty (just over two years from purchase) and now has difficulty maintaining a single browsing tab (need to restart multiple times and then it will only display all webpage content for 15 minutes maximum). The pages in question are largely text-based with a single static banner ad.
I've found the battery life fairly poor as well (approximately 3.5 hours before recharge required)
This runs slower than my old Ausus laptop which I was replacing. Takes forever to start. Do not buy this product it is a total waste of money, I had hoped to be able to back up my iPhone via iTunes but when iTunes was loaded it almost stopped completely.

For $800 this laptop isn't really what I expected it to be. Its incredibly slow and there always seems to be updates that need installing that then make the laptop run even slower. The mouse pad is extremely sensitive and I've got it on the lowest setting. So if you want to scroll down using your fingers, you pretty much always accidentally click on something and it gets very frustrating after a while when you're trying to do something important.
But what annoyed me and pretty much shocked me the most is the battery life. From the very first...time I started to use it, the battery would go flat within a few hours of moderate use. I'd love to write more about this product but surprise surprise..my battery is about to die. Best word of advice, stay away from this laptop. But don't get me wrong, its pretty reliable and does the job, but just in the slowest manner possible with multiple charging involved.
I purchased a year ago as it had reasonable graphics for simple CAD drawings I sometimes do and I did like the fact it had a built in disc drive and 1TB HDD.
Well it just never did anything well, always slow, even booting up just go and make a coffee whilst waiting.
I have bought a MacBook Pro and everything just works.
Meanwhile I was only using this Lenovo rubbish to enter numbers into my basic accounting program and it just crashed and won't recover.
Just purchase anything else but this. I should have spent more money, I should have returned it to JB where I purchased it but once you have it setup you don't really have time to play games with warranty claims.
This laptop has cost me far more in lost time than its purchase price.
Great product. I have not experienced any problems with so far. Good for everyday usage. Light keyboard, large screen 15.6". Would recommend purchase especially for students. Reasonably priced, good battery life 3hrs + fully charged. Slim line appearance with DVD drive. Reasonable fast processor. Overall a great model at a reasonable price.
Lenovo idealpad 110 laptop
I bought this from Harvey Norman. I would not recommend these laptops to anyone I owned it for 2 weeks and the hard drive packed it in it took 5 weeks before I got it back and even now it freezes up all the time and the screen goes black for no reason and you have to turn it off and back on then it takes 10 minutes before it comes good again I would never buy Lenovo again.
Basic model for basic needs.
This laptop is good for basic purposes. It's a good size, light weight and has a good sized screen. However, in only 6 months the two corners above the screen fell off and has left showing a couple of wires. Flimsy material but it's a cheap laptop, so I'm not all that fussed about it. It still works well enough, just a tad slower than id like.

Laptop ok, Confirm warranty support before purchase
Bought specially for an exchange student to use in a foreign country under the assurance that it had an international warranty - this turned out not to be the case. After experiencing a problem, Lenovo confirmed it had to be returned to Australia for service. If you are in a similar situation get warranty details in writing before you buy. Technically the Laptop is ok and good value if you don't experience a problem.
