I also found less than satsifactory that there were no instructions or any info to explain how to get things like word and etc. Reasonable price, but seller not helpful in changing my delivery address, i also found less than satsifactory that there were no instructions or any info to explain how to get things like word and etc. Or if there was an option to do so, the seller did answer my question after a few days of why the dvd drive didn’t work, but it is one thing that i would expect to work regardless of whether the laptop is old or new. If it has a dvd drive and it is advertised as so – it should be able to play dvds. This has been a bit of a nightmare as i a not a techhie and didn’t expect to be spending time learning how to do this for myself. I just wanted a laptop that worked and was straightforward from the word go.
Good for it’s price, currently using this to write this review. It’s lasted a lot longer than i expected i’ve bought plenty of laptops for over 500 before and not lasted long at all. This was way cheaper and worth every penny.

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.
Plus points:+ good solid keyboard+ screen is good and performs quite well for games like portal 2 (despite only having integrated intel hd graphics card)+ performance is reasonably good (once you cut away the bloatware lenovo think you should want)+ pretty light, given its size+ speakers surprisingly good for a laptop (both for volume and quality)negative points:- poor battery life- a lot of bloatware (but relatively straightforward to remove)- trackpad oversensitive (but i expect i’ll get used to that).
Lenovo g500 amazing performance with some side effects. This is my first laptop and i’d like to say it is a good bite. I searched and researched for many months to buy in something good looking and better performance laptop. Pros-lenovo g500 – intel i3 core processor – 6 gb ram with windows 8. 1 [i have updated this to w10 now for better performance. 6 inch display – inbuilt graphics – not so heavy and more importantly noise free fan for good looking features. Amazon packaging and delivery of this item was excellent. Overall i liked this product very much. Cons-battery drains quickly and doesn’t sync with actual/estimated time that displayed on battery icon. ]
