Summary: I will give it a 4 stars notebook based on its spec/price ratio, average spec with decent price. Intel i3 is more than enough for daily use on surfing webs, documents, movies, ect.. Certainly not for intense 3D gaming, but touch screen feature adds extra fun experience for games on MS app stores which unable to enjoy with traditional keyboard/mouse/touchpad.
Summary: Very good price for this laptop. Great for online surfing, games, watching movies. Volume is very good for movies and music. Nice size for playing games and watching movies and has lots of extras. Mouse pad has got a mind of its own which can be quite annoying, but overall am very happy with this laptop. The best one you can buy for this price.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this for the price, does everything I want, runs cool and quiet, reasonably fast. Am getting used to Windows 8. The only problem, three times the display has gone to a screenful of flashing coloured lines. This was cured by opening and closing the lid but I hope it's not a sign of trouble to come. Will post further if that happens.
Great hardware, riskysystem for the non- computer-savvy

Summary: I've been using an Acer Aspire for a couple of years and when I bought it I was torn between that and a Lenovo. I just bought this Lenovo G500 for my girlfriend and it's been interesting comparing the two. The Lenovo build quality is MUCH better than the Acer. Yes, it's a slightly thicker and marginally heavier laptop, but it's much more solid and less bendy, defying the plastics that it's built from.
Summary: Really pleased with this laptop, it is not suitable for carrying around but I bought it for home use. Took a little time to get used to using Windows8 but fine now. For the money I am really happy with this product.
Summary: So far so good, Well somewhat.. Had a lot of issues with that awful operating system Windows 8.1 ... Very tempted to install windows 7 on it, But not got around to it yet.. as for the laptop it is a very good machine for the price. Handles some games (world of warcraft, Hearthstone & minecraft) On normal settings. What is amazing for such a cheap laptop. For internet browsing it is a dream.. Can surf the web with multiple tabs open with zero lag! It's very quiet..
