    "I didn't know anything about the Lenovo brand before this computer. It seems to be a great computer. I don't do gaming or any particular things like that. But it's a good general computer for the average person. "

    "I started taking college classes for computer science recently and needed a PC to get my programming done at home and this little thing gets the job done. It's built fairly well and feels quick for the price, but it is definitely not a machine made for gaming. I knew this going in and I knew that integrated graphics are a disaster for gaming, but in terms of what I needed it to do which is programming it gets everything done well."

    "Ok, I am no technological genius here, but I love something fashionable. I bought this specifically for all the designs to choose from and the super-slim look. You can choose from a variety of colors and a variety of designs and textures!! I haven't seen anything like it. So, I order it to look cool and I am so happy with this laptop/tablet! I love the feauture of the speaker being on the front. I never have a hard time hearing my videos. I also love the long battery life! Over 13 hrs of life!! So helpful when I can't plug in."

    "Lately me and my brother have been looking to practice coding together. We did not really know which PC to get so we went to the store and started asking for help from the salesmen. A lot of them suggested we get the Lenovo Thinkpad E470 20H1006GUS so we did. So far it seems good enough for our purposes."
