Summary: I bought this laptop for my son. It's been great....so far. I love using windows 8 but, the keyboard layout is counterintuitive. I just connect a keyboard and mouse and we are set. Great price as well.
Summary: Other than reformatting the laptop because win8 is terrible the laptop is good for basic web searches and such. Do not expect a super computer because it is not such. The good is that it has a super easy to the touch keyboard and the screen has pretty good brightness and also good resolution.
Summary: I ordered the Lenovo G585 and got the G580 but a brand new laptop. However it was a switch up I still keep the one I received and I can say I am happy. I had it a month in a half and I haven't had no problems.
Summary: Works as a computer should with no problems. The Big downside is Windows 8. You'll have to relearn how to use a computer all over again. I've been using computers for 25 years and have been professionally trained but it took me 20 minutes just to figure out how to reboot it. One thing that is annoying is the left mouse (touch pad) button. It takes effort to push it down and it should be just a light tap. What is with these touch pads the last few years?
Summary: I gave this to my wife for her birthday a while ago. After realizing that Windows 8 is set up as if it was being used on a mobile device, she became a little more accepting of the product. The problem, of course, is that absent swipe actions on the screen (the screen is not set up to be touch sensitive), the operating system becomes a pain in the neck.
Summary: I got this as a black Friday lightening deal for $199. At that price I couldn't say no especially when my old laptop just stopped working. This isn't the fastest processor but is perfect for what I need it for which is saving my pictures, email, internet and basic things. I haven't tried the webcam yet but the speakers and screen are both great. The touchpad is very sensitive, I don't really like it but using a portable mouse solves that problem.
Summary: Not a very good laptop, I'd advise anyone to spend a little more money and get a better one, this one freezes, takes ages to load anything, can't deal with many internet windows open at once and I really don't like windows 8.
Summary: Windows 8 is difficult and extremely annoying without a touch screen. I considered sending this item back within days because it freezes and goes slow with even simple basic actions. With such a spec, this should be better.
