Thank you Lenovo | Open Letter to Lenovo Users & Tech Support

A few weeks ago I saw the Lenovo K430 on NewEgg while shopping for a new Desktop. I was amazed by the K430’s features and great looks. However, after doing some research I became very baffled about the Power Turbo Switch and the many horror stories about upgrading the graphics card.


I called Lenovo Technical Support to talk about possibilities and get advice about the graphics card, a woman answered the phone and informed me she had no idea or information about graphics card; but she recommended I speak to Sales. I was transferred to sales and they too informed me that they knew nothing about the computer or graphics card.


I decided to call B&H Photo, the name sounds deceiving but they really are the best with support. The Technical Support told me if I really wanted a great computer I should think about building my own.


So today, I embarked on the journey to build my own computer and I want to say thank you to Lenovo. If it wasn’t for Lenovo's extremely bad Tech Support and Sales I would not have built my own computer.


Lenovo you are so terrible and clueless, you have inspired me, you have driven me by showing me your lack of knowledge and sense of awareness, the idea that a company has a sales and tech department that knows absolutely nothing about their own product. Thank you Lenovo, you are simply the worse PC maker on the Planet!


Thanks to you; today I have the most powerful computer I could ever imagined. The only Tech Support Leno provides is the word Support on their website.

I, on the other hand, not so lucky. I'm stuck with a K430 Desktop with an i5 and 12 GB DDR3. It runs so slow! Even with the Turbo switch mode. When I open the task manager, my disk usage is ALWAYS at 100%. Not happy.

Welcome to the club... Nobody is able to tell me what other graphic cards the motherboard supports, other than the ones listed in the manual from 5 YEARS AGO...
