Summary: Bought this laptop from school. Lenovo makes a lot of great laptops and despite the fact that this one falls under their entry-level G Series category, it packs a decent punch for the sub-600 dollar price tag. Please note that the i5-4200M is a dual-core processor, unlike its desktop counterpart which is quad-core. The good thing about the dual core processor is that it maintains efficiency while still being a well performing chip.
Pros: -Good combination of power with the i5-4200M and 6GB RAM
Summary: This laptop is pretty good. I actually highly recommend it if you just need a cheap laptop that's fairly snappy with decent battery life. It just doesn't play games very well. The Intel Hd 4600 is not a bad integrated GPU. My i5 4670k in my desktop has it and it runs games rather well which is why I bought this expecting a decent budget gaming machine.
Packed full of programs, compact, better than expected

Summary: I brought this with Office365 as required word which works brilliantly. Can be difficult to navigate at first, looks very different to standard windows. a lot of programs and apps for the price of this laptop!
Summary: This is only a brief review as I only picked up from the Co-op last night. It feels very responsive, the keyboard has a good feel to it too. The HD is a Seagate SSHD (this is detailed on Lenovo website, but not Amazon). Spent time removing some of the included Apps which lead you into a chargeable service, especially McAfee. First real task was to update Windows 8 to enable the Upgrade to windows 8.1 - these both took a while as they were over 500Mb and 3Gb downloads!
Summary: I've had no problems with the plastic case as another reviewer, it seems pretty robust to me. However for a little bit extra you can get the same model with 8gb of RAM, its well worth it as it will extend the longevity of the machine, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-G510-15-6-inch-Laptop-Integrated/dp/B00HR6U0KK/ref=sr_1_2?
Technically a nice laptop but a questionable choice of material for the case.

Summary: The laptop itself was fast and responsive though the touchpad was overly sensitive for my taste. The choice of material for the case baffled me - never have I seen a surface so easily marked by finderprints. After a couple of hours of use I seriously questioned whether or not I had coated my hands with butter...
