BEWARE OF LENOVO. I received a new T61 on Friday...it has shutdown and power problems. LENOVO says I can't return it without paying a 'restocking' fee of over $200! I should pay to return a defective product? Like they are going to put it back into stock and send it out to someone else?

Bought T61. Dead right out of the box. Corrupted hard drive. Spent days trying to fix. Lenovo sent bad recovery cd's. Spent $250 for outside tech who said you have a lemon. Days on the phone again. Sorry your option to return is 2 days late TFB! It aint IBM no more. Typical Chinese bad quality product like the poison toothpaste, lead baby toys & phony generic drugs. Dont make the mistake. They could care less. More interested in making cell phones. $1500 door stop to look at. Support a company who cares!

Received a T61 defective right out of the box. Recovery system dead. CD's sent were defective. Days on the phone. Days trying to make it work. Spent $250 on outside tech support. Conclusion = LEMON. You are 2 days past the return period. Too bad eat dirt. Like we care!? It aint IBM no more!! Poison toothpaste, lead toys, phony generic drugs = CHINA = LENOVO. Dont make the mistake. No offices in USA just Canada. USA 85% of their sales. Please pass this on.

I have a Lenovo N200 0769, and it has terrible power problems.
If I put it on my lap for too long, or if it is on a surface or something which I use it on regularly (bedding), it will, just as randomly as a BSOD, shut down.
It really irritates me...
Wish I got a Mac...

I have a Lenovo 160g T61p, with Vista Business. It died after about one month and I have been on the phone with the call center for 4 weeks. The call center is worthless for any somewhat complex issues.

After several very high end tech guys (each with 20+yrs) worked on the machine, we were able to verify that my data is actually still on the machine and that Vista is the biggest POS ever created. One guy backed up the drive using Norton Ghost and then we loaded windows XP. Works like new now, just get rid of Vista it is like the computer in T3, it has become self-aware and is out to destroy mankind.

I have a new Lenovo T61p with Vista Ultimate. Donno if its Vista or Lenovo, but it works like h... Total crash every time I use it - hard lock, not even resources to report the problem to Microsoft.

Don't know if this will help anyone but my girlfriend has a lenovo that shut down after a few minutes use. I checked it out with a computer guy who said the battery was defective. He said he would order a new batter and reinstall everything. I told him to wait and took the laptop home. I tried using the laptop once again but this time I pulled out the batter and just used the power adapter. That was a month ago and the laptop has been working fine. I've never used the battery again. It's a pain to always have to use power but it beats the heck out of spending hundreds for a new laptop for the second time in a year. Others with lenovo power problems should try this before buying a new battery. Just don't try to boot up the laptop with the battery in it then take the battery out. It will still crash that way. Let it sit without the battery for a few hours then plug in the power.

I have a Lenovo Model 15303 bought in Nelspruit South Africa about 8 months ago. The camera has been installed upside down!
I have taken it to several experts who all agree that it is the first time that they have seen it.
What should I do? Take it back to the shop or get in touch with Lenovo direct and ask them to replace it?
