Summary: This is a pretty basic computer. It’s relatively inexpensive and has most of the basic features you expect to get with a laptop. The first I can into was after you go through the initial setup you get with any computer; there is no Windows 8.1 on the computer. You will have to go through a long setup to get this installed on the computer.
Summary: Fabulous condition it was already to go. I hit the ground running. This is not a light weight so I won't try to back pack it to often. It keeps me. Mobile around the house and out of my wife's way. Which is the main reason I got it.
temperamental DVD drive, but otherwise a solid machine

Summary: I tend to evaluate computers based on multiple criteria. One is the processor power for the price. These delivers quite adequately in that regard. You can run pretty much any web or business applications without difficulty and it has plenty of RAM. It will also do a serviceable job with graphics applications, though it's no powerhouse. It even does okay with some games.
Excerpt: The Lenovo G510s is functional and seems to be operating with no problems. I love the touch screen feature. The price was acceptable since it was on sale for $200 off. It's a bit heavy , but I do not travel with it.
Summary: Hard to beat for the price point and specs. Perfect replacement for my Toshiba that s***ted out early. Figured I'd give a "cheap" computer a shot and I'm glad I did. Positives: price, specs, touch screen, virtual keyboard Negatives: made of plastic (durability in question), speakers ( not loud compared to my Toshiba, but not horrible), battery (5 hours) Overall I wanted a decent computer to download TV shows and get online with. This is perfect for that.
Summary: I'm replacing an entry level Compaq about 3 years old with this computer. At that time, the cheapest laptops were around $300, while entry level models that weren't dirt cheap were around $400. This laptop strikes me as a well updated version of the entry level models, while managing to be a bit more expensive, most likely because of the addition of the large touchscreen. Hardware: It has everything you need to do most things you'd want to do at home easily.
Summary: I bought this laptop, but ended up returning it because the keyboard is not comfortable. It does not have a full size shift key on the right and the numeric keypad is not full size, so if you are a numeric touch-typer, it will be difficult to get used to this set up. I opted for another laptop brand with a more standard keyboard layout.
Excerpt: Excellent product. The touch screen is great, the backlighting is really a nice feature, the number keyboard makes book keeping tasks much easier..all in all a really good computer. One feature I do not care for is the screen latching closed...this may be a weak point. It would really be a plus if a single page cheat sheet on Windows 8.- was supplied to use as a reference when getting started. I would highly recommend Lenovo and this model.
