Summary: Bad screen the laptop's screen started failing just about a year after purchase, now there's these black dots the size of a golf ball where the screen just "broke" or like the inner ink on the screen itself spilled the computer has never fallen off anything bad build quality
Summary: I did a TON of research before buying this laptop. Basically I wanted to get the nicest laptop I possibly could under $500, and the specs on this one seemed pretty good in comparison to similar laptops.However, from the moment I got the g505s, pretty much everything that could go wrong did.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this laptop. It performs very well, especially when compared to other laptops in this price range. But if you're a gamer looking at this PC because of its graphics capabilities, you should know your more recent game titles won't perform very well.

Summary: This is not a heavy duty LENOVO as I was used to in the past --- but so far it has been a good buy. AMD processor fails occasionally - but then quickly recovers. Other than that -- I recommend -- especially for the price!
Summary: Very nice laptop for the price. I can play most of my games no problem, however I suggest using another keyboard as it tends to get very hot. For very graphics heavy games, I recommend turning down to medium, but it runs Minecraft no problem! For movies it's not bad.

Summary: I got this laptop because the specs (i.e. RAM, size of hard drive, processor speed, etc) seemed like a great value. But I started with minor problems which escalated over the 8 months I've owned it.
Summary: I ordered the Lenovo IdeaPad G505s 5 1/2 months ago and it now will not turn on. Im contacting Lenovo since it still has a warranty. On a side note: The edges around the keyboard frame are sharp and very uncomfortable. Mouse pad is the worst one I've ever used.
