lenovo's are piles of sh1te

Post by agentpineapple » Fri Sep 25, 2015 10:09 am

last year I bought a touchscreen Lenovo something or other, what a pile of poo, within 6 months parts of the plastic/rubber trim were falling off. after a year the left speaker stopped working, the touchpad really wound me up, then my desktop would disappear, and now the pointer/touchpad just locks up of disappears for no reason.
I consider myself fairly capable with pc's laptops and tablets, but this things driving me crazy, can't a man just watch porn without all these distractions..... :Smash Computer:
if I could afford a new laptop I would seriously take great pleasure in smashing this one up with a hammer.
HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!!

Hmmm. "Touch screen porn" conjours up all sorts of wild ideas. Can't wait till they bring out a "hands free" version...

But I'll give Bluetooth a miss, cos that sounds like it belongs with Blue Rinse. And I don't watch that kinda stuff.









Anymore. :oops: :lol:

I gave one of there tabs. It's ok but that's about as far as I'd go. Had it nearly 2yrs or so and not even a software update

We have Lenovo think pads for the students at my college and they stand up to the abuse pretty well, no worse than the Dell's we have.
