What Do Customers Say About This Product?

Customers shared a lot of good things about the design, features, and overall performance of this laptop. They say it comes with great display resolution. Its touchscreen feature is very efficient and accurate. The device comes with several pre-installed apps developed by Lenovo, but users can remove them right away if they like to.
