I was impressed with the tech spec of this laptop for the price and have not been disappointed with the performance. As a professional typist I need a good keyboard I can bash away on and this one is the best I've used. It flashes around apps speedily and as for Windows 8.1 - I love it. The vast memory means I can save as many photos, music, games etc as I like without slowing down the performance. Also - no more laptop knee! It is very cool no matter how long you have it on and has a good battery life. Downsides - there's no doubt it is heavier than others for its size. If you want a laptop to carry around frequently it might not be for you. Personally I use this at home and prefer my phone or a tablet for travel.

I've been using an Acer Aspire for a couple of years and when I bought it I was torn between that and a Lenovo. I just bought this Lenovo G500 for my girlfriend and it's been interesting comparing the two.

The Lenovo build quality is MUCH better than the Acer. Yes, it's a slightly thicker and marginally heavier laptop, but it's much more solid and less bendy, defying the plastics that it's built from. The layout of connectivity (power, USB2, USB3, HDMI etc) is nice, and as many have commented, the keyboard has a reassuringly good, quality feel and design.

For every day computing tasks, the hardware is absolutely capable, and I'd venture that the 1TB of hard disc space is possibly overkill. For those needing some extra memory available, don't be put off by the 4GB installed - SODIMM modules are really cheap on amazon, and an upgrade would be worth considering.

Everything else, in terms of hardware (screen, camera, speakers, DVD drive etc), seems to be equal to everything else within the 200£ - £500 price range.

My misgivings with the G500 have been entirely to do with Windows 8.1 and, in particular, the extra free software installed. This machine with Windows 7 installed would be a sure 5-star for me.

Make sure you have your WiFi ready, as one of the first parts of the setup process when you first boot the system is to connect to a network, and set up your Microsoft account. It seemed to be quite a lengthy process to get to the point where the laptop was ready to use (MUCH longer than setting up Windows 7), and then I got hit by the bloatware.

Really pleased with this laptop, it is not suitable for carrying around but I bought it for home use. Took a little time to get used to using Windows8 but fine now. For the money I am really happy with this product.

Style Name: Intel Core i3Size: 8GB Verified Purchase
For those debating "Should I buy this? Should I not?". Well the answer is BUY IT. I had done quite a fair amount of research before I bought this laptop as I wanted to spend my £300+ on something I would not want to regret. I did not want the high end laptops, nor did I want the lower end laptops, but this beauty sits right in the middle. After a speedy delivery, Quick opening I was very pleased, not too heavy, nor extremely light. Looks simple, elegant, what a laptop should look like. Setting up does take a few hours, installing the latest windows 8.1, deleting unnecessary pre installed apps/bloatware/websites, and yes I got fed up with the constant wait BUT once I had done all that I had no further problems. WIFI was quick to set up, apps I actually wanted etc was easy to install. Quick response, no issues with the mousepad nor the keyboard, everything was responsive and slick. I also took a while to get use to windows 8.1, but In time you can make it your own, and can customise it however you like. The camara is good also, you can see yourself and that's the main thing.

CONS?
- Well there isn't much I can think of except the corners of the laptop are pretty sharp, especially where your wrist would sit.
- The screen resolution could be brighter.
- Pity it doesn't have Microsoft Office installed, you have to buy that.

PROS?
- Good camara for pictures, Skype etc
- Nice, easy to use keyboard/mouse pad
- Good connections, wifi was easy to set up
- Big screen, clear images
- Fast response, no lag or jitters
- DVD/CD drive is a plus too

For a budget-ish laptop, you get everything you would like and then some. I would certainly recommend this (I actually have, my sister is getting one). I can't speak for those who have had problems, but for me this is a perfect laptop for my work, web browsing, watching films, music, pictures etc. Buy it!

I bought the Lenovo G500 as a replacement laptop for a 5 year old laptop.

The advancement in technology was expected, but the build quality of Lenovo was a surprise to me. Lenovo aren't very famous as a brand in my country. Acer and Asus seem to have taken over the 'budget' laptop market. When comparing these three it is clear that the Lenovo is of a superior build quality and design.

Keeping in mind that this is a basic laptop, and not a gaming / fancy laptop, it looks very professional. The buttons feel good and the trackpad has multi-touch and works as it should.

I would definitely buy this again.
