Summary: My G500s is just 6 months old. Already probs with no sound and daily, intermittent failure to connect to very strong, working wifi off Comcast Premium internet modem. When it works, I'd give it 4 stars (minus 1 for the really crappy Lenovo tech support and the slowest web site I've ever encountered). I would not buy this again, or in the first place.
Summary: I'm an IT guy at a law firm and do design and websites on the side, so far this laptop has handled everything I threw at it. Instead of the 1TB I put in a 120GB SSD and cloned the original lenovo software but other than that the laptop runs perfectly as is for Adobe Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Amazing laptop!
Summary: It took me a bit to get used to the touch screen and Windows 8, but now that I'm used to how to get around on it, I just love it and am so glad I chose it after doing some research. I would highly recommend it.
Summary: It's a pathetic Laptop. Pathetic wi-fi connectivity, awful design due to which breakge will start soon, you have to really press in order for touch screen mode (not smooth), pathetic customer support (from Lenovo)
