1 out of 5 eggsDisappointment

Pros: Win7. I am not sure who to blame more - Win7 or Lenovo.
After about 1 month I noticed Windows Media Player is not working. Lenovo agreed for fix it for a fee, even my PC was under warranty. After searching Internet I fixed this problem, but still cannot upgrade Java. On top of it is veeeery slooooow, even I have 8gb of RAM and i7 processor. And it lies - boot takes about 2 minutes, but the message says - booting tome 40 sec.
My next laptop will NOT be Lenovo.

Cons: slow, cannot upgrade Java, Windows Media Player did not work.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid i7 System

Pros: Quality components/machinery. Gread hdd/ram capacities.

Cons: Windows 8 + Screen resolution. Windows 8 is just stupid. There is no point in bundling Win8 on this machine. The OS is designed around "apps" and touchscreen manipulation. This is NOT a touchscreen laptop. Consider, for a moment, the lunacy of requiring a user to drag down an open application from the top of the window USING A TOUCH PAD. I reskinned the gui to work like Win7, but it still runs into compatibility issues. It's VERY frustrating and I groan about using the laptop because of it. The screen resolution is only 1600x900dpi. On a nice, 17" screen, that should be full 1920x1080, but for $730, you can't exactly complain...I guess.

Other Thoughts: great hardware. bad software (OS). do yourself a favor and wipe the hdd as soon as this thing arrives. also, bite the bullet and order a copy of Win7 or (if you know what you're doing) linux when you get this machine.

5 out of 5 eggsMy First Laptop And I'm Loving It!!

Pros: I've always been a desktop guy(Still am) but this laptop is fast and reliable, I can play most modern games on it and it handles multitasking like a champ. I can't think of anything this laptop can't do. I mean just look at the features:
1. Core i7 CPU/Turbo 3.20GHz
2. 8GB DDR3 1600 RAM
3. Nvidia GTX 635M
4. 1TB Hard Drive
5. 17.3 Inch screen
6. I can take this beauty/beast anywhere with me
7. Windows 8 is awesome(took me 2 days to get used to it)
I thought I would regret this buy but I have not had any regrets yet.

Cons: 1. Gets HOT while gaming
2. 5200 RPM hard drive?? Really?? At Least a 7200RPM would have been better.
3. The price, $879.99 now, I bought it when it was $729.99
4. They load all kinds of unnecessary software that I don't use and uninstalled most of them.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is a great performer and there are endless possibilities with it, but for the price I bought it for, I can not complain, I still think its worth it at the current price.
IF U WANT A FAST LAPTOP CAPABLE OF BLAZING SPEEDS BUY IT!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Laptop, extremely pleased

Pros: Beautiful screen, keyboard, and touch pad. Haven't found something that wasn't wonderful about the construction of this laptop. Best part, a wonderful introduction to Windows 8. I was a huge fan of Windows 7, but Win8 is even better. All of your security stuff (firewall, anti-virus, anti-malware) is built right in, no need for third party security software.

Cons: You will have to get rid of the McAfee that comes preloaded and turn on the Windows Defender manually. A bit of bloatware, but remember, the bloatware keeps the price down! Just delete what you don't want.

Other Thoughts: Wish it was a touch screen, but it wasn't worth the extra cost this time a round.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: Great computer for price. We even use it for some photo and video editing which it can handle quite well.

Cons: bloat ware. Just uninstall most programs that come with it and this is a mute issue

Other Thoughts: Great laptop for price that was paid. Got it for $750 on a newegg sale. Not quite the bargan at full price, but if you wait for a sale you will be happy.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad at all

Pros: Runs great. No problems or issues so far

Cons: HUGE con: NO MUTE BUTTON!? This is a feature I use a lot because I listen to music while working and have to mute the laptop when I get a phone call. Quite annoying

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really powerful computer for its price. Good gaming pc.
Also very light.
Delivered within the time frame promised.

Cons: As some have mentioned, microphone placement is rather strange (next to where your mouse would be). But this is not really an issue if you get a headset.

Other Thoughts: I want to say that Windows 8 is not even as bad as people are saying it is. It is not even that different from previous windows. I was expecting a lot of trouble with Windows 8 when I read the reviews, but when I got the pc, it took me less than an hour to figure the basics out (I am not even that good with computers). Also, this part about windows should NOT factor in how you rate the laptop itself.

5 out of 5 eggsLenovo G780 passes my tests

Pros: Excellent laptop for the price you pay or should I say I paid!
If you can use Windows 8 then I recommend keeping it installed.
Once I installed Windows 7, I could use the virtualization technology to test the peripherals extensively, performance was excellent or as expected.
Graphics are excellent but cannot do some of the latest/greatest games with their optimal settings.
Tested Linux configurations as well, no NVIDIA drivers for Linux.

Cons: Hard drive is a little too slow for my liking but that is subjective to personal use.
Windows 8 is limited on virtualization features which I need as an IT professional and student but others may not.
Finger prints and smudges show easily.
Finding good cooling pads can be tricky.
Mouse occasionally will move without touching actual pad.
Battery life is short if you do not adjust your display.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very satisfied with the machine. Out of the box configuration has great performance for the average user as stated by my family. IT Professionals may want to mitigate certain downfalls. I certainly would buy another one for the price I paid. Shipping was faster than expected, Newegg was quick to process my order. Any complaints about this machine or Newegg should be met with criticism by the readers, I kept my review fair and tried to be impartial.
