Summary: I thought it came with an HDMI port, but alas it did not. The touch pad is a bit glitchy at times and freezes altogether at others, but as long as you have a comfortable/portable mouse this laptop is awesome.
Summary: It came in black instead of brown, but that was not very important and I was not about to pack it up and exchange it for a brown number. It's hard to know how much it's affected by the OS. I HATE Windows 8 (they should croak at Microsoft!) and I don't know if that's what's slow or is it the computer, or maybe it's my cable speed. I have no idea.
Summary: The computer quality overall seems okay, but the i3 just does not handle multi-tasking very well, and I'm a heavy multi-tasker. I also don't care for the Windows 8, so I am now considering upgrading to another computer with an i7 processor and Windows 7. Will probably still go with Lenovo though, because otherwise the quality is there.
Summary: Why, please tell me, why do they mess up a PC as good as this one by installing Windows 8 on it? Were it not for that it would have gotten a much better rating. For crying out loud, MS-DOS was a better way to go! Other than that it's pretty slick.
Summary: I spent a few days disabling "power savings" options on the ethernet & wifi cards before I got the wireless to work without disconnecting after about 20-minutes. Also, make sure you run the windows 8 updates .. mine needed 30 updates! The computer is nice but the windows default settings don't make sense! Search the internet concerning "intermittent wireless using G580" and thankfully several folks will show you how to correct the problem.
Summary: Coming off of a Macbook, it is really a big step down. However, it does what it is supposed to do. I had to return the first one sent to me as the tracpad did not function correctly and the return time was on the slow side (2 weeks). The new one is much improved and I do thank the vendor for allowing me to swap out (i did pay the return shipping, $12), though.
