Lenovo installs 30GB of crap on your laptop (Computers, Rants)

Julie just got a new Lenovo X200s laptop with SSD. When we got it we noticed it had only 60GB free space out of 128GB. There was a 10GB recovery partition, but that didn’t explain where all the space had gone. The C partition had a whopping 42GB of data installed, and this is supposed to be a virgin machine!

Now for the really stupid part. When I reinstalled from the recovery partition, the same system was only 13GB. Still way too much if you ask me, but better than 42GB.

Lenovo, you suck.

    interesting .. i have a thinkpad Y510 .. perfect for what I use .. BUT i started installing programs on the D partition (which i started off as just documents) due to the fact my C partition with windows vista home a 30GB partition .. programs installed on C drive 4.2GB (on D drive programs are 6GB) windows folder only takes up 14.3GB.

    If i ever redo it all and start again I would love to enlarge the C partition to have all program files on which with Vista taking up almost half of the 15gb (and yes I have 10GB just missing somewhere !) I would want a C partition of 40GB to take Office and Adobe stuff. The rest is miniscual compared.
