Summary: Reviews of the Lenovo G555 were decent for an inexpensive laptop so I bought one. Five months later the hard drive crashed. They eventually agreed to replace it and did. Next the plastic facing over the CD drive broke while lifting it out of my backpack.
Summary: The two negative reviews are way out of scope for this laptop. This laptop for the price is hands-down a fantastic laptop. It runs Windows 7 quite fast and with 3 gigabytes of ram, and a 2.1 GHZ Dual core processor, and a 160 GB SATA laptop hard drive, you get fast application processing power, and...
Summary: Can't speak to all units as there are some good reviews on here, but I can speak to what I've experienced. Purchased new 1/1/2011 on sale for $300. I recognized the validity of getting what you pay for but as this was a first laptop for my daughter I was ok with that.
Summary: I am extremely disappointed with the poor quality of this laptop. I was looking forward to a Lenovo laptop after a disappointing experience with a HP product. The touch pad does not not work and the right and left click pads are extremely noisy and made of cheap plastic. A wireless mouse is a must.
Summary: I bought this Lenovo laptop to replace a Toshiba that I gave away. It sits on my breakfast table and is used like a desktop PC for reading news, trading stock, watching video...etc. I have owned it for about 8 months and I like it a lot.
Summary: I have had this unit for about 1 yr. It is a very nice machine...super wide screen...turns on and shuts down fairly quickly. I use it for web surfing and have zero complaints. People are complaining about the DDR2 memory. Why do you need more?
Summary: Well I would first like to say I've had this laptop for about a month and its been a perfect Gem handles 1080P MKV Media files better than expected. Like everyone else I had issues with the touch pad being in the way so I just bought a wireless mouse and use that instead and disables the touch pad.
A reasonable machine for the price, a nice big screen for my 80+ yr old mum.

Summary: First my cons: 1) Lower quality WiFi transceiver it seems 2) Impossible to type with jumping cursor until I disabled the touchpad 3) I could shave in the shiny reflective screen 4) The battery drains faster than the advertising 5) I'll add the bloatware myself thanks if I think I need it 1) I...
Summary: Having owned several laptops for work and recreation this laptop is by far one of the better machines I have ever used. It combines functionality with enough ram and processing power to get more than the job done. Great product.
