    "I bought this for gaming, and it works great. Huge upgrade over my last system, and for a good price. It does require that you buy a cooling system, as it will overheat, and does not have one. "

    "The i5 7th gen series is a great processor for mid range users. It handles multitasking pretty well, though not as well as the i7 series, and the 6th and 8th series are not a far jump from the 7th, making it a perfect middle of the road solution."

    "This is an alright laptop for the price and specs. I am always of the opinion that if you want more power you need to go with a desktop. Laptops can't yet handle very much stress unless you want to pay in the thousands."

    "I know these E series aren't exactly the legit ones that people think of when they hear ThinkPad, like the T or X series, but I'm honestly pretty happy. The build quality is as good as I would want from what I can tell, specs are exactly as advertised. Arrived on time. Nothing to complain about tbh, you might be able to find a better deal elsewhere with some possibly more shady sellers but I didn't wanna risk it so I'm happy. In retrospective, you can get a MUCH cheaper laptop with these specs so this isn't a steal, but I'm still satisfied."

    "I wanted to get a laptop with an i5 processor, since I had always been forced to buy the cheaper i3 version all of my life. The i3 is much slower and weaker, and I was blown away by the speed of my Samsung NP470R5E-K01UB when I purchased it. Think about everything you do on your laptop from work, to videos, to surfing, to shopping, to gaming. All of these page loads are quicker and easier with an Intel Core i5 in my experience, and I thought that the Samsung NP470R5E-K01UB did the job admirably."
