Style Name: Intel Pentium 2020M, 500GB HDDSize: 4GB Verified Purchase
I'd like to start by recommending that you pay as little attention as possible to the low rated review that was posted previously by another buyer.

This is a good entry level laptop for the price and was bought for a basic computer user. It was intended simply to be used for online shopping, word processing and emails. For this use it is perfect. It includes the latest, 4th Generation of Intel CPUs, albeit only a Pentium, but this is more than enough for this use.

While I realise that many people do not get on with Windows 8 or 8.1, there is only a small learning curve and it can easily be overcome. Windows 8/8.1 is a good operating system and more people need to give it a chance. The impact of the new style start menu is minimal, but when used correctly, allows for a much more efficient way of opening programs, searching files and using one's computer in general.

Physically, the laptop is well built. The machine is a little on the thick side but this is not a problem when considering it is simply a budget computer. If you would rather a sleeker machine, the G500s series would be more suited to you, costing a little more. The build quality of the laptop is outstanding for the price, cheap laptops are usually flimsy and creaky when used. This machine feels solid and has no annoying groans or creaks when in use.

Style Name: Intel Core i3-3110Size: 4GB
I purchased this laptop for a customer because of the brand and price and i have not been dissapointed.
It worked first time and needed the windows 8 setting up - 8.1 is not installed, you need to run windows update to update the system and then download from the app store and follow the instruction, it's simple and painless.

The processor is good for everyday tasks as is the laptop itself. Good storage and nice amount of ram but these could be bettered. if i owned it, i would do this:

*install a 240 gig solid state hard drive
*install 8 gig of ram

These would increase performance considerably, but i will say, it's not a slow machine as it is.

Aesthetically nice and feels good to use. Keys are a little flexy and will take time to get used to, but nice to type on - because of the full keyboard, you do slip when pressing return sometimes and hit a number.

Sturdy and i think well built and fairly light. it doesn't have a glossy lid or shell so finger marks can be kept to a minimum. Screen is very vivid and bright, a little to bright so needs setting up properly. i find the wireless to be very quick and strong signal anywhere in my parents house - big house, router the opposite end to the lounge, still got 4-5 bars.

overall i'm impressed and about to order a second for another customer. i'd recommend this for everyday use but it's NOT a gaming machine. A lot of kit for the cash and a brand you can trust.

Style Name: Intel Core i3-3110Size: 4GB Verified Purchase
I'm starting with a (no doubt doomed) attempt to highlight our irritation with the plethora of unwanted pre-installed file back-up, anti-virus and other programs. It's hard enough to find your way around a new laptop, especially with Windows 8.1, without being exposed to intensely irritating attempts to get you to pay out yet more money.
You are pestered to buy another file backup program despite Windows 8.1 package already including free file backup. When negotiating from the Windows 8.1 start page to the control panel is confusing enough, you don't want to be tricked into buying more junkware. In our frustration, we ended up paying someone to de-junk the Lenovo.
I can now say that the laptop is a really nice, good-value machine with a pleasant-to-use keyboard, excellent screen, silent operation, and a good level of sound from the onboard speakers- not hi-fi of course, but very usable.

Style Name: Intel Pentium 2020M, 500GB HDDSize: 4GB Verified Purchase
Despite the low price, and some other reviews, this machine far exceeds my expectations. I bought this to replace my personal laptop running XP, which had run out of HDD space and it out performs my company's work machine!! I can see why some are put off by the new operating system, but it should be relatively easy for anyone who can use an iPod or smartphone. I am particularly impressed by the start up speed.

This is a great laptop. It is well built, has the i3 CPU and 4 GB of RAM. I recommend it highly. Also not too much software pre-loaded that you shall never use or Windows does just as well.

High tech spec for the price. Fast and efficient, just trying to get to grips with Windows 8, and I think I will have touse a mouse rather than the touch pad.

Very pleased with my lenovo laptop, runs well, very quiet and feels like a nice piece of kit. I feel like I've purchased a quality item.

Worth doing some research into the best processor you can get for what you want to spend. Use this to guide the laptop you buy.

This lenovo offered a better processor compared to others at a similar price.
