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.Read more ›
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.
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.
excellent value for money
although still not won over by Windows 8.1 ! - prefer Windows 7
i did worry at first buying this laptop because people did say windows 8 isn't good, however, i think its not that bad after all its just the interface which is different to win 7.
the design is a little plain and the lights are a little low but i think this laptop is a good laptop and will recommend this to whoever needs a laptop.
i have been using it for a week now and updated everything even win 8.1 and the laptop hasn't crashed or gave me any problems.
the speakers are nice and loud
