Summary: The space bar only works when pressed in the middle, (extremely inconvenient) the right-hand bar beneath the touch-pad sticks up. Text gets highlighted for no specific reason. I also find it extremely difficult to get around. Documents or email you are working on disappear for no reason and there is no indication as to where to retrieve them from.Windows 8 does not help either. I also find it quite slow to respond.
Summary: I would recommend this product, especially for the price I paid for it! Beforehand I had an i3 Processor, 4GB hard drive and a terrible graphics card. Now with an i7 Processor, 8 GB Hard Drive and a pretty good graphics card it feels like lightning! It runs everything fine, although I was expecting it to be even quicker but thats more my high expectations! I recently purchased Total War: Rome 2 which is a fairly demanding game and it ran it well on EXTREME!
Summary: I bought this to replace my HP DV8 and in many ways it is better although some things are lacking. No need to have two graphics cards, Nvidia on its own would do, some concerns about screen quality and optical drive door. I owned my HP for 3 years and must have used it for about 15,000 hours in that time maybe running for 12 hours constant. See how the Lenovo compares after 3 years.
Summary: This laptop is amazingly fast! Here's my pros and cons: Pros: 1. Lovely Keyboard 2. Speed is amazing. No slowdown problems at all during general use and gaming. 3. CPU and RAM is easily upgrade-able. 4. Fan can be accessed and cleaned easily, just consists of 6 screws and then cleaning. 5. Screen is very bright and spacious. 6. The laptop itself is very sturdy and feels very professional. Cons: 1. Touchpad isn't the best around, but still useable and not that bad. 2.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this and have never had a Lenovo before so was a little hesitant. Needn't have worried it has been a real eye opener. Pros: - Great value for i3 (have seen some laptops with older Pentium processors selling for more) - Nice design, solid build, no finger smudge issues.
Summary: Disappointed that this machine does NOT include the security technologies listed in the advert (Veri Face). If this is the feature which influences your decision to purchase, do not buy this one. Lenovo informed me those features are not compatible with Windows8. Waiting for a response. If this is not important then it is a fine laptop, in the meantime Amazon MUST update the advert, it is false.
Summary: Did a lot and I mean a lot of research before I plumped for the g780. Based on the spec compared to other models I considered the value for money on offer with g780 won the day and after a bit of future tweeking, upping to 16gb of ram and swapping out the hdd to the Samsung 500gb ssd 840/830 I will have the laptop I want while still saving money, overall cost after upgrades £950 approx, then hopefully recouping some £'s selling off removed 8gb and 1tb hdd.
Summary: I like the machine very much, using a wireless mouse which gets over the everything-on-LHS issue. BUT having bought it & an extended warranty from the Lenovo Online Store, I have registered both machine & ext warranty but still driven crazy by automated messages demanding further action, & Lenovo staff who either can't or won't read English. Result: stress levels astronomical, & wasted several days with no resolution in sight.
