Excerpt: I had actually won this laptop at my graduation for Highschool, and i had never heard of the brand name. I really didn't expect much out of it, but it turns out to be pretty awesome. As soon as i turned it on, i was quickly impressed. What i liked the most about it was it's on board webcam, and face recognition technology. To log on you can either choose to type in your password, or have it recognize your face! Awesome!
Excerpt: Got this laptop during some kind of promtion couple of months back from Lenevo itself after our sweet thinkpad crashed unexpectedly. Was totally suprised by the look it hen we recieved it in mail ! I totally loved the sleek look of the screen and the light weightness of the laptop. It is more of a mulitmedia kinda laptop so, my dh really doesnt prefer it. Has few bugs like login issues and some software installations.
Excerpt: I got a brand new system and the first day itself without too many applications running on it, it started heating up. its been up for around 3 hours or so. Also lenovo has a bad service. It takes more than a month to deliver the product. It ships from China. Doesnt care from where it ships but more than a month for a p;roduct sucks. But for the price of 500 bucks its what you get.
Excerpt: So I just had my birthday, I had an old hp notebook that when it got hot it cut off and the battery was so bad that I couldn't go anywhere without a plug. So my kids decided it was time for mom to have a good computer. You see I am on the internet all the time trying to find the perfect business and that computer really slowed me down. I do surveys and such and sometimes it just took forever to load the pages.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop over the summer to be able to use at college. I have had absolutely no problems with this computer. I got it at a fair discount, and it has absolutely been worth it. It does not have high end specs, but for anybody with normal usage, they are definitely more than adequate. I have no problems with it being able to run all of the many programs I routinely run.
Excerpt: We purchased our Lenovo G550 (2958FDU) PC Notebook three months ago when our other notebook was having many problems and this computer has been amazing in comparison! It works extremely well and doesn't overheat or shut down randomly like other computers we've had in the past. It is completely quiet and doesn't even sound like it's turned on.
Excerpt: This computer is fairly fast and the screen initially looks good, but since you have to clean a lot of garbage programs off of it, your initial impressions won't be that great. Naturally spending .10 for a windows DVD is too much for Lenovo--or they want to make it hard to clean off the useless trial programs--so you have to uninstall each item, and likely will never have a clean install on your machine.
Excerpt: First i will say this laptop was perfect for me and my needs but it may not be for everyone. This is definitely the best cheapest laptop i have found. I will point out what i specifically liked that other people may not like. The design, made out of sturdy plastic, no chrome, fancy designs, or tribal art. All black. 15.6" screen is pretty standard and not too big sitting in my lap on the couch. Only 2 usb inputs.
Great college laptop if you're not into consumer Macs

Excerpt: I got this laptop for free from a Google/Lenovo mathematics award in my senior year. I replaced my old Gateway Laptop with the Lenovo G550 and I am amazed by its performance considering it is "economy" priced. It comes with a free trial of McAfee, Microsoft Office 2007, and Adobe Reader 9. It has a webcam and built-in microphone. With the webcam, you can log-in with Veriface (after set up).
Excerpt: The G550 notebook computer from Lenovo is a good computer. Unfortunately it is not for sell anymore. It features a Intel Core 2 Duo processor at around 2GHz which is good for almost all your need including light gaming. You can customized the device with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. The screen is a 15.6 high definition LED backlight which means it is brighter and uses less power. The screen resolution is 1366x768. The graphics are only integrated.
