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.
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.
Summary: I've only had this laptop for a couple of weeks, but so far I'm very satisfied. There were complete on-screen instructions for correct setup, info on creating a recovery disc (just in case). Installing software, connecting to other computers on the intranet and sharing drives was very easy. I've installed graphics programs, word processing, photo editing, etc -- everything seems to work just fine.
Summary: Bought this computor as my old one was past its best and had become very slow . The Zoostorm is great, super fast and easy to set up Given the price it exceeds my expectations ,I am delighted Windows 8 is a little different but no way as difficult as I had been led to believe by other review's
Summary: I bought this laptop as a replacement for my HP G700 and found this laptop so much better. It came which windows 7 which I found strange at first as i was used to vista and i also found that a lot my editing software that I used my old laptop did not work on this one which was a shame. This laptop comes with 3G of memory which was plenty for me and works really well with all the games i clog up with my computer .
Pros: Fast, Better Graphics, Cheap
Cons: Dosen't support some software, strange screen shape
The Lenovo G550 is an all round good, robust, and reliable laptop

Excerpt: "...looks and first appearances the Lenovo G550 laptop looks pretty standard. No impressive artwork, light features, or super slim dimensions. It has a shiny hard plastic shell which doesn't shout out 'super cool' but shouldn't really matter if you want a laptop for simply using it as a computer, for both work and pleasure, and not an accessory. What the Lenovo G550 loses in looks it makes up for in speed, reliability, and ease of use. Had mine for ...
Pros: Robust and reliable .
Cons: The hard shiny case makes it look slightly cheap .
Lenovo G550 2958: Good laptop for someone wanting a bargain.

Summary: I bought this laptop as a replacement to my old Sony Vaio, which had recently stopped chargin correctly. The main reason i decided to choose this laptop was because it was on sale, and the specs looked very good for such a reasonable price of £300. I must admit I don't know much about the specifications of laptops but i was told to look out for a high processor speed and a big hard drive.
Efficient laptop that even my elderly mum can use!
