Summary: Thank you for this laptop. great customer service too. To Lenovo: I want to say that this Laptop is running very slowly with the 4gb RAM memory. Is not compatible to run the programs and Internet very well. 8Gb is posible to run best. I will have to buy other memory to run best this laptop.
It has features other new laptops in this range don't have

Summary: I only buy laptops from Apple and Lenovo. I love the build quality on both. My daughter needed a new laptop and I didn't want to spend a lot, so I got her this one, because, crazily, one of the reviewers here said he could play WOW on it.
Summary: The computer is a mid-to-low-end in performance, screen quality, and keyboard/mousepad function. I purchased this computer for my son. He used it not on a daily basis, but once in a while for school work. The usage didn't justify the hard disk to fail within 3 months of purchase.
Solid laptop for basic users, don't expect over the top performance.

Summary: This is a great student / retiree style laptop. Battery life is sufficient for light use and the CPU/RAM is adequate for Office, email, and other basic uses. But if you want a gaming system or video system... you gotta pay. The design is nice and slim for the price range.
Summary: I like this laptop considering it is good for the price. It moves kind of slow when loading pages when you first turn on computer, although it does start up right away. It came with the new Windows 8 which I quickly figure out and like. It is comparable to cellphone apps in the way that it is setup.
Summary: I purchased this laptop for around $300 and for this price, this is a decent laptop. This is my first Lenovo PC. Had 4 Acer laptops and one Dell Vostro 1000 laptop before and compared to the Lenovo G505, I like the Acer and Dell better.
