a fantastic laptop
on 11 May 2016
This Lenovo G780 laptop is an excellent item. I've been using this computer, on an almost daily basis, for nearly 3 years - and have never had any problems with it. It performs well, both as a work tool (typing documents) and as an entertainment device (online browsing, watching Blu-ray films). It has a great specification, including:
A 17.3 inch screen, in full HD.
1 TB HHD (storage space)
Intel Core i7 3612QM 2.2 GHz Processor (which, for web-browsing, streaming movies, etc. is fantastic)
8 GB RAM
A 2 GB graphics card, specifically a Nvidia GT630M (which means that this laptop can play many of the top PC games of the last few years)
x2 USB 3.0 ports
x1 USB 2.0 port
This is a sturdy, well-made machine (and you can tell that it's in no way flimsy, as some cheap laptops are). It came with Windows 8 built-in, but I've now got Windows 10 (free of charge).
It has a useful one-key rescue system (simply press it, and a restore point is created).
While it's not intended to be a dedicated gaming laptop, I have played some PC games on it (e.g. 'Resident Evil 6'), using an Xbox 360 controller. I also stream films through it - and connect the laptop to my TV via a HDMI cable.
This is an attractive machine, with lots of features. I've seen them sell for up to £2,000 - which is a lot of money! If you can buy one - new - for about £500 then you're getting a bargain.
