Summary: This has been a great laptop for the price. I am HARD on my laptops--I expect performance and durability, and Lenovo has never disappointed me. The only reason I'm replacing my Lenovo after three years of taking everything I dish out as a single mom and freelance writer/editor/artist on the go is because it's not cost-effective to replace the keyboard. The keyboard losing sensitivity over time and the overheating were my biggest gripes.
Pros: Durable, great screen, decent sound, decent webcam, decent hard drive space, decent dual-core processor, decent RAM--overall, good little laptop for the money
Cons: Poor keyboard quality, hard drive only lasted two years before failing, overheats
Excerpt: When I needed a new laptop, the first word to come out of the person I asked was "Lenovo". It wasn't long before I saw why, as two years later I'm using the same one I bought, and I'm writing a review for it right here. The screen is crystal clear, and the resolution is perfect. It was easy to get the hang on as well, I felt perfectly comfortable in it within only a few hours, almost like it was a part of me.
Excerpt: I received this as a graduation/Christmas present, and I truly enjoy it. It is extremely durable and very sleek looking. It is not overly heavy like it looks. I can easily carry this in my backpack without straining myself. The overall quality of this computer is great, especially for the fairly cheap price. It is very fast and perfect for those interested in streaming videos, etc.
Excerpt: Okay so I received this product for Christmas and at first I didn't think I would like it. It has windows eight which I had heard was pretty crappy. But I was pleasantly surprised. It works great. Windows eight actually works pretty good and I actually think the set up is pretty cool. I love the computer. The battery life is great, the mouse pad is really nice and over all it is just a very nice laptop.
Excerpt: This Lenovo G560 laptop has been great for our needs. We currently have wireless Internet and use it to work from my couch, on the porch, at the table, etc. It has held up well and my 5 year old even uses it to play online games. It is a little heavy as compared to other wireless devices now available, but not a problem for us.
Excerpt: I bought it for my son when he started having too much homework and sharing with younger brother was not possible.He likes the design, the size ,the light weight and the crisp bright screen. Its keypad is large and easy to use.Ample hard disk space for his purpose.It plays videos fine without any lag but playing games is not much fun (my son's complain) I think it is a good choice for a student at the price I got it for around 350 dollars.
Excerpt: Let me start by telling my experience with the lenovo. It's not that great to start with. I don't like their customer service as they have never really helped me with my old lenovo lappy. G560 is a different one. I got this for my Dad as he wanted a nice new laptop at a affordable price. I got this for around $580 bucks and so far my dad loves this. It comes with an Intel I5 processor. The processor is quite good and fast.
Excerpt: I have had the laptop for about a month now. I mostly use it for word processing, music, photo storage, internet browsing, and video streaming. I sometimes do some C or matlab programming. This laptop handles all those things without problem. The memory is good. The speed is fine. I really like the look and feel of the keyboard and the touchpad. The touchpad can be a little sensitive, but I am certain that I will adjust to that.
Excerpt: I have had this laptop for about three months, and so far, so good! It was one of the best priced laptops when I was looking. I didn't have a ton to spend, but I still wanted something that was good quality and had the features I desired (webcam, etc). This was the perfect fit. I have not had any problems with this laptop whatsoever.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop specifically because it had a numeric keypad. When I got it out of the box, I also discovered that one of the USB ports was located next to the power supply port at the rear of the computer, I use a wireless modem for my internet, and on my old laptop (USB ports at tne front), the modem was always getting knocked loose. If you're into graphic intensive gaming, this isn't the machine for you.
