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.Read more ›
- 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.
- 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!
