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.

Summary: I have such a love-hate relationship with this laptop. Let's dive in, shall we? Bought it for college. Works for that. Comes with a bunch of Lenovo garbage on it, any self-respecting PC enthusiast like myself immediately uninstalls 99% of it.
Summary: I've only had this laptop for a month, but I absolutely love it! It runs super fast, runs my games in high graphics with no lag or other problems, and gets the things done that I need it to do for me!
Summary: This laptop has pretty good power for the price, and I've heard lenovo was a great company, but I didn't have the same experience with lenovo as other people. I received the laptop with a few black pixels on the screen, but I decided to deal with the pixels instead of paying $50 for shipping to get...
Summary: Super fast and super cheap for the build. The battery life is meh but there are ways around it. I get about 4 hours out of it now through tweaks. I'm a student but I use a lot of software with heavy processing needs. This smashes it every time.
