Re: Lenovo Laptops.

Monte Single
 

How long a laptop or desktop lasts depends on many factors. Some of the factors are;
The quality of the components of the machine,
How and where the machine is used,
How many hours a day or week the machine is used.
... and others I do not think of right now.

I gave my sister an inexpensive Lenovo laptop in July of 2016. She probably uses it a bit each day but I know she does not spend hours and hours, on facebook, pinterest, and games.
So she has been using that cheap Lenovo laptop for 4 and a half years. It does all the thing she wants to do. It may die tomorrow. It may last andother 4 years. It keeps instaloling the windows updates.
It cost 250 U S dollars on sale.
If it dies tomorrow, so be it.
I figure it was a good investment.
For some other people, that laptop would have been inadequate.
Getting a machine that suits your needs and your budget is the best you can do.
If money is not an issue, then you have a lot more choices.

Hi Gene and All,
I've been doing quite a bit of research on the Lenovo IdeaPad in which I recently bought. I don't particularly like the keyboard, as the keys are to flat and to large, and different shapes, and when I press a key, the key goes down into the keyboard. I also read quite a bit about how long the Lenovo Laptops last, and according to what I have been reading, they only will last two years. LOL! I paid $499, so I would like it to last a little longer, but with this particular Laptop, according to the reviews I've read, this isn't going to last long. I also read this Lenovo does overheat quite often, not sure if it is because of the Intel Processor or what. I am going to take it back to Best Buy Monday, and try to get one without the num pad, as I know Best Buy don't have Laptops with the Num Pad in their stores.
Thank you all so much for all your help, as it is greatly appreciated.

Janet

To clarify, I'm saying that I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss the chip speed and cache that would be the best buy for the money for a typical user. If you get too underpowered or undercached a chip, you likely won't be satisfied. I'm also saying that differences in brands, which chips offer faster performance and more cache, for example for the price, and which operate more cooly, if that matters, are things I don't have the knowledge to discuss along with the best specifications per brand.

It is my impression that this or that brand may have a slower chip speed, but that other technical differences may provide faster performance than a different brand with the same chip speed.. And how much such differences matter for the typical user in terms of performance per price is something I don't know.

Re: New Lenovo IdeaPad Help Please.

Janet
 

Hi Monte,
I was told Windows 10 was installed, but when I was doing some research online, I just happened to come across some reviews, and answers and questions, so, I also saw directions how to install Windows 10 on the Laptop I just bought, and I thought to myself, oh my goodness, I have to install Windows ten too! LOL! I'm really not sure though if Windows is actually installed or not though, but because I don't like that keyboard, I will just take it back to Best Buy. I will try and buy another Laptop, and this time, I will be fore sure if Windows is installed or not. I do remember when I bought my last two Desktops, Windows 7 was not installed though. I had to pay someone to come over and install it for me. Matter of fact, I'll never forget when I bought my very first Desktop, in which was from Best Buy, but low in behold, when they downloaded Windows XP, they actually downloaded a virus on my Desktop though, so then because I had just bought it, and had no internet service at home as of yet, they gave me another Desktop.

Power the laptop up and wait a minute for the booth process to begin. Then
press the ctrl Plus Windows key plus enter and soon Narrator will begin
talking.
I am quite sure that Windows 10 is on the machine and if you take your time
and listen to the prompts, you can get it set up. Many of us have done it
before you.
I also believe that the Office suite is a thirty day trial unless you paid
extra to have the package.

You can cturn on Narrator with ctrl-win-enter, but I am not sure with
wat screen the Lenovo will start.

You can try to start the laptop and after a while press this shortkey.

It can also be, that the laptop will ask to install windows and in this
case I am not sure if Narrator is working.

Hi Group,

Sorry for the somewhat humorous subject line, but here's the deal. I got a Kuerig (fancy new-fangled in vogue coffee machine/maker/whatever) for Christmas. I have had a few sighted people try to instruct me as to its usage over the phone. Well I assembled the little staff or what you may call it into the area where the water is poured, put the pod in, put the water in the little compartment, pressed what I believe is the proper sequence of buttons to brew a large 16 ounce cup of coffee and 4 out of
5 times, nothing happens. Eventually, if I persist, I get a perfectly brewed cup of coffee.

What could be going wrong? If anyone has this type of device, please advise the proper sequence of key presses or what other things a clind person might need to understand about the operation of this device.

Thanks in advance for help.

Ron, I had a similar experience to you. What I've found is after you
fill the machine with water and then press the top button to turn it
on, you need to wait a little bit for the water to heat up. Put the
k-cup in and close the clamp down and then press the bottom button to
start brewing the coffee. If nothing happens, wait a minute or so
then lift the clamp and then close the clamp and press the bottom
button again. You'll get the timing of it with practice.

HTH,

You shouldn't have to press a sequence of buttons, just a certain one. But
since I don't know what one you have, I can't tell you which one. Pam.

Hi Group,

Sorry for the somewhat humorous subject line, but here's the deal. I got a
Kuerig (fancy new-fangled in vogue coffee machine/maker/whatever) for
Christmas. I have had a few sighted people try to instruct me as to its
usage over the phone. Well I assembled the little staff or what you may
call it into the area where the water is poured, put the pod in, put the
water in the little compartment, pressed what I believe is the proper
sequence of buttons to brew a large 16 ounce cup of coffee and 4 out of
5 times, nothing happens. Eventually, if I persist, I get a perfectly
brewed cup of coffee.

What could be going wrong? If anyone has this type of device, please advise
the proper sequence of key presses or what other things a clind person might
need to understand about the operation of this device.

Thanks in advance for help.

Re: Lenovo Laptops.

Gene
 

To clarify, I'm saying that I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss the chip speed and cache that would be the best buy for the money for a typical user. If you get too underpowered or undercached a chip, you likely won't be satisfied. I'm also saying that differences in brands, which chips offer faster performance and more cache, for example for the price, and which operate more cooly, if that matters, are things I don't have the knowledge to discuss along with the best specifications per brand.

It is my impression that this or that brand may have a slower chip speed, but that other technical differences may provide faster performance than a different brand with the same chip speed.. And how much such differences matter for the typical user in terms of performance per price is something I don't know.

Janet,
Power the laptop up and wait a minute for the booth process to begin. Then
press the ctrl Plus Windows key plus enter and soon Narrator will begin
talking.
I am quite sure that Windows 10 is on the machine and if you take your time
and listen to the prompts, you can get it set up. Many of us have done it
before you.
I also believe that the Office suite is a thirty day trial unless you paid
extra to have the package.
The important thing is not to let it intimidate you. LOL!

You can cturn on Narrator with ctrl-win-enter, but I am not sure with
wat screen the Lenovo will start.

You can try to start the laptop and after a while press this shortkey.

It can also be, that the laptop will ask to install windows and in this
case I am not sure if Narrator is working.

Re: Windows 10, Run UserCommand?

Gene
 

What do you want to do?

I said yesterday that you would need a full path statement, but maybe you wouldn't. There are ways, I never looked into them to indicate where you want to get to by using the percent sign. I know about DOS but this question uses aspects of using a command line in the run dialog and I don't know details about that which may be useful or im;portant.
