Recently bought this laptop within the first two weeks the battery doesn't charge past 2.5 hours, although it is advertised as 5.5 hours. I am a computer science student who really need a reliable laptop with great performance and battery. I ran an few virtual machines and ran a coding programs and the laptop with the SSD can handle the workload, it is pretty powerful. I commute a lot so great travel size laptop. The battery is the only downfall, I have tried multiple attempts at tuning battery life thru the apps, checking stress tests on voltage, I have talked to many reps from Lenovo and no success at reaching at least 4 hours of battery. I am super stressed out about how this laptop will effect my senior year and trying to keep it from not dying in the middle of lectures and programming assignments.

I hope this review is helpful to anyone looking into this model, learn from me and try to do the 17” model perhaps you get better battery at 9 hrs. I'm [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
