Is Lenovo Edge 15 - 80K9000DUS a good choice for me?


Mar 20, 2015
Hello everyone!!

Looking for a personal use laptop for multimedia mostly and some basic autocad projects. I've come across the Lenovo Edge 15 - 80K9000DUS with a good discount in their web site (US$829+tax). I've been looking for reviews online with little luck, I think is because the model is quite new.

What do you think? ...Have you try it? ...Do you think it is a good laptop for general everyday use? I would greatly appreciate your help. Please find the tech specs below.

The laptops are shiny, although components may be inferior, and service is horrible.

I purchased a new G751JT ROG in 02/15, and the hard drive crapped in 03/15. Service said to ship it, but they don't provide a shipping box, if you use your original box, you won't get it back, and while they provide shipping it's uninsured and it's three business days there and three back. I shipped on a Thursday, meaning I'll be without my $2000 laptop for 7 business days and at least one weekend. It cost me $24.00 to box it and insure it.

I've had Sony's, Samsungs and Dells, the industry standard is overnight there and back, with max turn time three days, sometimes two.

Needless to say, I've just purchased my first and last ASUS. Looks shiny, but service is horrible, banana republic, essence of cheap.
