This is a LARGE part of the reason we just bought two Lenovo G580's! We LIKE to do business with companies that treat us right!

Wow. I can honestly say I will never buy another levnovo Idea brand product again. The support is horrible.
Been on the phone for an hour to see about having it repaired.
They tell me to look up a local warranty place and take it in. I do and am told they only do Thinkpads and not Ideapads.
I call Lenovo back to get a list of where I can take it that actually works on Ideapads and am told they have no idea and I should just call every one that shows up on their website and ask each one.
Then they say that even if I do that, they'd have to charge me for things if anything goes wrong even though it's under warranty and is being worked on by one of their approved Warranty places.
I ask them to send me the parts myself (long shot) as I've been fixing laptops for 10-15 years and am first told they can but they aren't responsible for something that gets broken. They say no, the System Board is too complicated to replace so I'll have to waste the time and money to ship it in to them.
An hour into the call he takes a break and asks me how I'm doing today. What the hell do you think my answer is going to be. Jackass.
Good luck to anyone who buys one.

Knowing Lenovo the 4gb is a single module. So that is easily upgradable by adding a second.

My wife's z580 is heading into the shop today. Bad CPU or System board or something. But here's is the i5 version. Works great except for the random freezing and BSODs... Extra $100 for the i7 seems like a decent deal. Oh, but it only has 4 gigs of memory and a 500gb hard drive...
Don't think that's nearly as good of a deal then.

Oh and resale value on the i7 is better for the future.

|wrenbe||tigerdirect.com is not price matching. "Good price and below my cost, I won't be able to price match that." If anyone finds a site that will please let me know, this looks like a decent replacement for my Toshiba i3...|

|jayboydog||i7 dual core with hyper-threading. Q in processor name indicates four core. (all i7 have hyper-threading which in effect doubles the number of channels. i.e. a four core with hyper-threading performs with those applications able to make use similarly to an eight core processor).|
