Just finished setting my laptop up. Lovely piece of kit.

Thanks to the OP and to the poster of the PDF

Now has anyone found some sweet protective cases/sleeves for this beauty of a laptop.

Thanks :-)

I heard someone in a review (of possibly the 3500 ryzen version) mention that installing microsoft precision trackpad driver helped with the trackpad, could be worth a try. I think the guy just hated how the trackpad operated. This may already be installed

I got a mandatory Windows update today on shutdown

Next time I booted, could log in and then windows flashed on off repeatedly, couldn't do anything.

After much messing was able to roll back the 'quality updates

Weird

I got the grey one. Not bad for €15. That included postage.

yeah i picked up the grey one at that price, needed something that could hold the tablet and a few bits as well so this looks perfect

preferred the sandy coloured one tbh but not at twice the price!

Can somebody help me - please.

I’m having an issue with the adaptive brightness on my laptop. I cannot find how to disable it. It keeps dimming and getting brighter in different scenarios.

I’ve searched on the Lenovo website, I’ve checked the Microsoft website. I’ve googled and googled and no answer. I’ve double checked all the drivers.

I have no option available to me in the Display settings or even the Power settings (which one website suggests) to disable it.

The picture will show that I possibly should have an option to switch it off but on my laptop/windows 10 pro - I don’t.

Could it be the battery saver mode kicking in? Once you go below a certain percent it will disable screen brightness, then once you go back above that same percent it will re-enable.

Did the laptop specs say it has automatic brightness? I don't remember.

But as far as I can tell, my laptop doesn't have any brightness sensor built in, so it can't do the auto brightness.

The issue is still happening and I’ve rang Lenovo Support (they are getting a second technician to call me)

And now there may be a dead pixel issue (I’m running a possible fix but it’s not looking good).

Just my luck :-(
