Ordering Service:

I ended up calling them to see i could find out some more info about the laptop before i bought it. The customer service lady was well informed and answered my questions regarding customization, additional components and i got another 100 dollars of the sale price tag.


Right of the bat i have one slight issue: Customization

The Thinkpad line is easily customizable but the Ideapad line is pre configured i think it would have been nice to be able to configure this line as well to get those little nifty things.

I said i would never buy an ATI card lol i guess it has come that day, Im no longer an ATI virgin after 25 years i have bought with my own money an ATI card i have been given an ATI card before but never bought i think i had to mention that.
