i've never met anyone who's been happy with their $300 laptop. Heavy, poor battery life, sluggish performance, awful resale value, slow boot up and shut down times, lack of software designed for mobile use, etc..
You trollin'? $265 i3 ivy bridge, dude! You're talking out of your craphole.
I don't have a Staples in my area, what's the chances of OD accepting the coupon? Anyone tried?
I just did and it worked. I told the store manager that I could have ordered from Staples online. Then he said I bought it a few days ago and it was not a new sale. I told him the coupon is supposed to be valid until 2/21 and the coupon has been out for a few days. No more questions asked.

I would strongly recommend just reinstalling windows completely, other than that you can just go into add/remove programs and remove everything lenovo includes that you won't use
Okay, apparently a clean install is tricky. Here is what I did. Download Wise Care 365 and PcDecrapifier. Decrapifier did NOT see any of the installed apps and programs as crap ware or bloat ware so I had to do a search of ALL the installed stuff to decide what was trial period, crap ware and/or I wouldn't use. Then I used DeCrapifier to uninstall them and then ran Wise Care 365 to do clean up and registry repair..

Can you do a clean install on a pre-installed OS computer if you don't have a key in hand? Or can you just insert a DVD created from an MS ISO and the computer inserts the key that is in the computer's BIOS (somebody mentioned earlier that is how computer manufacturer's store the OS keys nowadays).
