This laptop has everything you'd need for all
tasks except gaming. The only hardware that allows the system down is the 5400 rpm hard drive and 6Gb of ram but you have to remember it is a laptop. The machine is a workhorse tool and the operating
system and touchscreen work great together. The key thing to
getting the most out of this laptop is learning the ins and outs of
Windows 8. I say this because a lot of people fail to learn the new
benefits of the system and don't take advantage of them. Yes, it's
different but once you learn how it works, you can really take
advantage of the system.
It boots up pretty fast and has tons of storage for all your
digital media (music, pictures, and video). I've loaded the new
version of office on this machine and it works seamlessly.
Whenever it goes on sale, or there's a good discount coupon
available you won't find a better laptop at this price. Lenovo has
had a good reputation for building quality products and this one is
no different.

I have used Lenovo products in my offices for years so I thought this would be a safe bet. the edges of the unit were so sharp it could not be used in a laptop function...there are little ridges along the edge that add to the cut of the plastic. if you have a docking station you might be okay. I literally had to wear fingerless gloves to use the laptop.
Additionally, the mouse pad is not properly placed on the unit setting it off-balance. it was very difficult to use.
Finally, the numeric keypad is not of the standard layout. For an accountant, this is critical. having the right arrow below the 1 key led to numerous entry errors.
I tried to make the best of it but after 4 days it was clear that this laptop needs to be reinvented. I returned it.

Lenova G500 review

By JoAnn

from Des Moines, IA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Lenovo G500s 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop:

Love how fast it starts up and general functionality from my desktop just fine. However, Windows 8 operating system is not in my favor. It is not intuitive to me and I'm quite comfortable with new technology. Have an iPhone with fantastic touch screen functionality, know how to add and delete apps without any trouble. Never needed a user guide. But you have to read and learn how to use this system. Still don't know a few things - like when a clock appears on my screen and I have no idea what caused it.

Video streaming seems a little limited as to how much it loads at once.

Have had occasions when my wireless Internet connectivity got turned off and don't know what caused it but the troubleshooting fixed it quickly

    Comments about Lenovo G500s 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop:

    Love getting the larger storage and touch screen. This takes more time to get use to but, it appears to be worth it. The only reduction to the rating is that I have not had the computer for a month and it has now been marked for 'clearance'.

    Comments about Lenovo G500s 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop:

    I won't blame the laptop for the Windows 8 problems, but you can't get far from the Wi-Fi router if you want to receive any signal. My wife's Toshiba and my Lenovo were right next to each other and mine would not register any bars for the network; hers had max bars. Also, can't turn off permanently the mouse pad on the keyboard. So after every time it sleeps, the setting reverts back. Next time I'll stick with HP.

    Comments about Lenovo G500s 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop:

    Bought this as a work laptop. I had heard that Windows 8 isn't very popular but found that once I got past the numerous apps screens and the start screen I could place all my favorites on the desktop which made it so much easier to manuever around. I am getting more familiar with the Windows 8 system. The laptop is easy to use and quite comfortable when I travel. Much lighter than my old Toshiba laptop. Very user friendly.

    Comments about Lenovo G500s 15.6" Touch Screen Laptop:

    Overall a great laptop computer. It was the third one I had to go though to find the right one. Windows 8 was a bear to get use to but I have overcome it. I would recommend this computer to anyone who has had problems with other laptops. I would also like to say those who work at the Staples in Ponderay, Idaho were the best. They bent over backward to take care of my problems.
