This is good laptop but need to install os again

I bought this laptop in last year boxing day and used over a month. Good thing is there is enough ram so I can run osx 10.8 with vmware in 4g ram setting and windows 8 with 4g ram together. It is running well. The price also was cheap with $[...]. However, it was little bit lagging when I buy this. I am not sure the reason but when I deleted partition and re-install windows 8.1, no lagging at all. This is good laptop if you just use this for web surfing and office application use. I am not recommend this if you want to install other os (such as hackintosh) because this blocks many things in bios degree. I tried to change wifi adapter with other one but system not allowed and could not booting up. This is well made for customers but little complicated for developers. Windows 7 was perfectly run well because lenovo website also offer windows 7 drivers. I also installed camera application to login without password in windows 7. Of course it works in windows 8.1 also. You can install windows 8.1 without recovery mode if you install windows 8.1 version with same product id which you purchased. Do not install professional or enterprise version of windows because it is not certificated from Microsoft. If you have enough money you can ask recovery cd when you deleted partitions of windows but if not, just install windows 8.1 version by yourself. In addition, recovery button is not working if you deleted partitions. Technician told me that that is offered in bios level, but when I rebuild partition, nothing happen. I hope this is helpful for your shopping. Thanks for your time

lenovo laptop

I have only had this laptop for a few weeks so not sure what it will be like in the long run. So far it has performed well, It is fast to load up and quick to shut down.
