Rubber coated laptop WHY have you done this to lenovo you weirdos
I use a laptop to do things on no need for a desktop any more and tablets piss me off,

So anyhow had this laptop years and years and it was good until it wasnt.

for light use and things i needed and the price it was great that laptop broke, Thought ill get another lenovo , do got a similar model
Now this is where i regret not going to a shop and looking, The laptop came woks fine never though nothing of the rubber coating
Now on the outside that would be semi fine... but they have done the entire fucking thing in that rubberised shit thats black mat and smooth, i dont have particularly greasy skin whatsoever god help anyone with one of these and they are sweaty handed person, it looks like shite finger marks hand prints ect the thin layer of natural oil on the skin shows up crazy and wont wipe off, it looks like your a fucking slimeball with all the greasy shit, im temted to find a solvent that will remove it its the stupidest thing to coat a palm rest keys and touchpad!

I used to be involved in materials engineering for a lenovo competitor. Marketing would demand we use that material because 1) it looks and feels luxurious at first and 2) it melts down after a year or two and forces you to buy a new laptop.

Re: Rubber coated laptop WHY have you done this to lenovo you weirdos
that coating can be removed from outside of electronic items by using a regular solvent on a rag.

a nasty job for sure rubbing it off but you can get it off.

when you remove the coating you may be removing some paint etc., as well but at least you lose that slimy mess that makes it uncomfortable to even handle the device.

Re: Rubber coated laptop WHY have you done this to lenovo you weirdos
Daughter had an expensive Lenovo: shipped it to them for service after a drink spilled on it(her fault,no question) . They fixed it; billed her; she paid.

They said they shipped it back; She never saw it again. They gave her her original tracking number as proof. She went back and forth with their stupid customer sevice for(literally) 6 months:
" we shipped it to you ; here's the tracking number.."


"Run the damn number! it's from my address to your repair facility"!

She had to buy a cheap chromebook just to finish her college semester assignments.

After an online rant: they finally conceded:
Yeah we're sorry: we lost your machine..."
They finally did replace it. 6 months later.

Fuck lenovo.
