Wow. The number of douchy comments that can accumulate on these threads never ceases to amaze me. When people like you post this stuff, it just makes me feel bad for you and wonder what level of inadequacies you are trying to overcompensate for.
I think there are better options available at this price range but I'm not going to put down people that are looking at this price point because I understand that people of all incomes may not NEED a $2K laptop when they just need something to check their email and do light work on.
Next time, think first and be better
Detailed specs [lenovo.com]

Though this model is a good value for $350, the display has a 220 nit, non-touch, TN panel. Also, the keyboard isn't backlit if that's important to you.
Every year some new thing to complain about becomes a trend. First it was backlit keyboards, touch screens. Now its "nits". An excessive amount of people talking about it now like its a crucial deal breaker. Little ridiculous.

also unless you're an old man, backlit is really not that important as most people know where every key is and the laptops glare lights up the keyboard well enough

One DIMM is removable, so RAM upgrade to 12GB or 20GB should be possible. SSD is upgradable.

Any coupons?

I wonder if we can replace the panel with an IPS model.

Similar at Walmart for $299 http://www.walmart.com/ip/Lenovo-.../864885543
The only difference is FHD and color. Worth the money.

If you are shopping this price range and want a better display than TN, another option to consider would be this highly reviewed model on Amazon for $350:

I got this for my wife to do basic work from home. I upgraded the RAM to 8gb and it is more than enough for all the light use we throw at it. Yes, it is half the memory but memory cards are so cheap nowadays, I didn't sweat it.

Walmart has it with the same specs but no 1080 resolution for $299. Might be a good option if you plan to use it with an external display.

Geoffrey, agreed. Was gonna say the dual-core processor is a bit underwhelming, but at least it has hyper-threading. Not that it's gonna matter to someone like him anyway if he's expecting an i7 for $350. Same shit-posters flock to Chromebook threads too.
