Cons
trackpad is very unreliable

Its mostly easy to use, battery life is great, light-weight. Great processor i5 for the price. However the trackpad is terrible, often does not respond to a single tap so need to tap again, however from forums I now find that other E320 users have the same issues and if they get it replaced on RMA the replacement is just as bad. OK the price was $500 but you get better trackpads on $250 netbooks so that is no excuse. Some people use the trackpoint instead so I may have to train myself to use that.

It's a great laptop. Probably one of the best laptops in the $500 range (and best to buy it when Lenovo has coupons for it at the Lenovo web store).

The only thing I have to complain about it is the clickpad (trackpad), while it is quite large, the precision of the trackpad is somewhat lacking.

The buttons which are located on the bottom edge of the trackpad also take quite a bit of effort to click, so click and drag operations can be slightly tricky to pull off.

Also I'm glad they included the trackpoint -- not because it's a business oriented machine but because not having to leave the home row while you're typing to move the mouse is a good thing.

Other than that, this is a great laptop, for those who are looking for something affordable that fulfills basic needs / officework the Lenovo E320 is near perfect in that regard.

However when it comes to multimedia, that's where it falls short, so if you're expecting good sound quality or screen quality you'll be better off with an IdeaPad or something along those lines.
I'd give this a perfect 5 stars if Lenovo paid extra attention to the trackpad, the screen and added a USB 3 port.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
