The Packaging and Bundle
The box is nothing special; in fact, it is almost industrial in nature with no gloss, bells nor whistles. Very drab indeed! For the price one has to pay for this product, I have to question if Lenovo shouldn't take more care and attention to detail in presentation of the package.
Looking inside, you get the same feeling or mediocrity and lack of "bling", for want of a better word. Some will find this preferable to a glossed up box, however I would personally enjoy a neat box with a few details of the product included on the packaging.
When I looked closer however, I did notice a very clear label stating that the product is a "Machine Demo", so perhaps because it is a Demo product they have packaged it without much regard for presentation. In terms of functionality though, it has to be said that the product was very secure and steadfast, with little chance of it being damaged through regular shipping and handling of the box.
The bundle included a battery pack power cord AC adapter and several documents including the following manuals :-
- Setup Instructions (Quick Start Guide)
- Other supplements or flyers for purchasing peripherals
- Service and Troubleshooting Guide
There were no CDs of any kind supplied.
NB: Our product was the Taiwan version and therefore did not have WiMAX capabilities installed. However, it should be mentioned that the USA version does cater to that need.
