Summary: Bought the Lenovo G580 as it had good features and power for the money. The machine and programs work well and I didn't see any bloatware. My problem is the cheap plastic build and poor durability. The left screen hinge broke off and just hangs there.
Excerpt: As with other reviews here, I was really glad to find a Windows 7 laptop after trying Windows 8 (with its crazy touchpad troubles.) Everything seemed fine with this Lenovo AT FIRST... but as seen in another review here, my Lenovo also had problems when I tried to watch videos.
Pros: Easy To Set Up
Cons: Couldn't Watch Videos, Inefficient, Very slow
Summary: This is the story of a defective support service, 6 hard disk drives and an empty box. Back in April 2013, I acquired a Lenovo laptop (about $900), directly from the Lenovo.com site. Everything works satisfactorily until 4 months later.
Summary: Way too complicated to get started and going. had to take it to a PC shop to get an explanation. And I HATE Windows 8 that came with the computer. Cost me a lot to get it retrofitted back to Windows 7
Warehouse Deals Delivered a product lacking Windows Licence
1 June 2013
Summary: The item ordered was supposed to have Windows 8. Not only it did not have Windows 8 but it lacked product key for the pre-installed Windows 7. Totally different Windows version than the one in the product description. Returned the item right away.
Summary: At age 82, I am not prepared to learn how to navigate this software when the laptop is not even touch screen equipped. I just use it as a replacement for a 8 year old early windows model that they no longer support . I wish I had it back.
Summary: The touch-pad is the most constant irritating thing I have ever had to work with. When using the scroll pad, if you move to the left it will pop-out a right-side tool bar that then has to be closed before you can do anything else.
