Summary: This is the story of a defective support service, 6 hard disk drives and an empty box. Back in April 2013, I acquired a Lenovo laptop (about $900), directly from the Lenovo.com site. Everything works satisfactorily until 4 months later. The laptop wouldn't boot and the error message points at a hard disk drive failure. Request #1: A quick and pleasant call to Lenovo and, two days later, I receive a replacement drive and reinstallation DVDs.
Summary: This computer has been very disappointing. I ordered this computer for my business so I could have a computer that I could work from home with. Its super slow and the internet works selectively, but rarely. And I have tried different browsers. I am not sure if its Windows 8 or the computer itself. But I rarely want to use it because of these issues. I spent several days just cleaning it up and troubleshooting the issues. I am thinking about returning it.
Summary: I purchased this as a Birthday gift for a friend around may 20 2013. By july 10 2013 the Y key, and I think 2 more are stuck, and won't work. Not sure what is wrong. Just got it back from my friend, I am going to have it fixed since it was a gift, and didn't last much over a month. Amazon won't give me my money back, not all of it anyway, they only warranty this laptop for 30 days, of course it lasted about 33 days.
Summary: If you have a lot of time to sit and wait for your computer to function and do basic tasks, them this LENOVO is for you. I have gone gray waiting for this thing to load programs. It is NOT worth the money. I didn't want to spend a lot, I figured to use this for typing estimates, basic internet searches and email. I'm regretting my purchase, stay away and spend a few more dollars, you'll be glad you did.
Summary: I needed a computer because I've been using my iPad as my main computer, and I was getting tired of really only being able to use one app at a time and by the word processing functions on it. I sold the iPad and I purchased the Lenovo G585 because the price point was good, particularly with the specs included, and because of the good reviews. It ended up being a bad decision.
Summary: Just on hardware alone...3.75. Pet peeves -.5 for keypad good idea but it makes the keyboard off centered. -.75 for some sort of glitch. The mouse will jump and highlight sections of text while typing causing you to lose work and time undoing. I have tried changing the settings and it is better, but still needs some tweaking.\ Now for the big issue. Windows 8 is pure cr@p. This is the most god awful os since ME. You hear fans say if you use you will like it. Bull!
Summary: The laptop, on the surface, looks great for an entry level laptop. It boots up quickly and appears to have decent specs for the price. However, the laptop often freezes. I'll open a web page and the mouse sticks where I have no control of the laptop for up to 30 seconds at a time. This is extremely frustrating because the laptop is brand new and it performs much worse than my 4 year old PC that, when it came out, had only mediocre components when I built it back in 2009.
Summary: when i got my lenovo g585 it did not work. i contacted the seller and was told he was to busy to help me with the problem. so i had to take it to my own teck man who got it up and running for me no thanks to this seller. over all i had to replace the battery , it was faster and cheaper than sending it back. the laptop is great but the service was the worst.
Summary: I bought this laptop, like many people, during the black Friday deal for around $170 and I thought It was an amazing deal and I guess for the price... It is. But, this notebook is definitely not worth the near $400 retail price. To start off, the laptop is decently slim, but wide and has an incredibly annoying keyboard. There are too many hardware issues that I run across every once in a while and It can get obnoxious.
Summary: Bought it as a gift. Worked great for the first month, and then keys started to literally pop off the keyboard. Most were able to be put back on, but the return button remains broken, and only works now if I leave the tab off and press the white button that is exposed now underneath. Never expected this to be so cheap feeling.
