Bought it as a basic laptop, fits the bill. Bought it as a basic laptop, fits the bill for what i needed, windows8 took a bit of getting used to but notto difficult.

Others have covered the technical aspects better than i would. It is important you know that i had a good look around at many other units bewfore i decided to purchase this as a replacement for my xp enabled desktop which was beyond upgrading to windows 8. I find this laptop a perfect replacement. I use it with a cordless mouse (purchased separately) and it does everything i want. It has a good enough battery life for my use and my more computer literate friend was very complimentry of it. You get what you pay for in this life, and there are better and more expensive units out there.

A very good laptop for its price. I bought the lenovo g500 as a replacement laptop for a 5 year old laptop. The advancement in technology was expected, but the build quality of lenovo was a surprise to me. Lenovo aren’t very famous as a brand in my country. Acer and asus seem to have taken over the ‘budget’ laptop market. When comparing these three it is clear that the lenovo is of a superior build quality and design. Keeping in mind that this is a basic laptop, and not a gaming / fancy laptop, it looks very professional. The buttons feel good and the trackpad has multi-touch and works as it should. I would definitely buy this again. Here are the specifications for the Lenovo G510 15:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • HD Graphics Support – good for movies and games
  • Dolby Advanced Audio – delivers a premium and immersive surround sound experience
  • Accutype Keyboard – individual rounded keys for comfortable and accurate typing
  • Energy Management – saves energy and protects the battery’s durability

We had a false start with a unit that was not as expected, but to give amazon there due they swapped it straight out and sent another one before i sent the old one back. Although i was tearing my hair out at the time, i cant fault amazon service at all. We use the laptop for all the usual home ‘stuff’, plus i need to access some quite heavy duty excel spreadsheets and use pivot tables, macros etc. Our previous dell i3 could not cope and this little lovely takes it all in it’s stride. I have used lenovo’s in my work place and have always been impressed with them. Further a friend who is an it manager has an lenovo i7 and would not touch anything else. Whilst i could not afford that level, this does everything i need, day in and out, quickly and reliably.

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).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Well the laptop is good for working
  • Great value & item as described
  • Easy to use, massive storage, wonderful keyboard.

Great hardware, riskysystem for the non- computer-savvy. I’ve been using an acer aspire for a couple of years and when i bought it i was torn between that and a lenovo. I just bought this lenovo g500 for my girlfriend and it’s been interesting comparing the two. 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.

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.

Has a good battery life, enough memory for lots of work and plays games well too. Sound is very good and the price for it is very good.

Great laptop, except one thing. I have owned this laptop since 2014 and its been a dream to use. The laptop is nice and fast and can handle games quite well. However the internet connection suffers. When next to the router i’m only picking up 3 bars on internet, making is necessary to buy a wifi extender to use this thing. After 3-years of use its still working just fine. 1 but updated it to windows 10. Then i updated the os some of the pre-installed lenovo apps didn’t work, but i didn’t use them anyway. The laptop also can overheat causing the whole unit to shutdown.

Well the laptop is good for working. Well the laptop is good for working, but not that good what i expected for gaming, to be honest that’s why i bought it, to play games. But it’s good enough to run league of legends on highest graphics ^.

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.

It’s so quick compared to my old one. Not going to get into tech details but for downloading, streaming, copy files, plugging in my 2tb hard drive it works superb. Also of course it’s fine for browsing & all the usual apps. Windows 8 isn’t scary at all, if you don’t like the new interface then hit the windows button and browse your desktop like you used to, you aren’t forces to use the new interface. This is fine for most people. Maybe if you are a gamer then you would care more about the technical details.
