3 out of 5 eggslenovo g500 ok

Pros: Inexpensive, effective, fast enough for us. I find a wealth of info on Lenovo's site.

Cons: Under 64 bit Windows 8 (lotta getting used to) I find I cannot load some old 16 bit programs, which we use for financial functions. This cripples the usefulness of the machine. There is no way to move one of our very useful programs to 32 bit (no update available). Now we look at much work transferring all our data to 32 bit programs (one of our machines is still 32 bit). Compatibility mode doesn't work. So much for backward compatibility.

Other Thoughts: Bought the regular, non-touchscreen model because we haven't bought into that mode (our smart phone touchscreen is a PIA). Windows 8 is usable, but seems tuned to touchscreens. Understand Windows 8.1 allows startup directly to the desktop screen -- hope Windows 8 normal updates provide that functionality. I refuse to participate in the endless, expensive, and minimally useful updates Microsoft seems to want to sell. Wish I could talk my wife to switching to ubuntu.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Design flaw, Don't buy

Pros: Price is cheaper

Cons: 1. It is made of cheap parts. Well, it is cheap, but still works, right?
2. It is heavy and ugly, my boy complained all the time.
3. It has a bad design flaw. After half a year light usage, the hinge part pops open, it turns out it uses the same tiny screws as the bottom cover, it is not strong enough.
4. At 11 months, blue smoke came out of the vent, it is totally toasted
5. Their repair service is really really bad. Did not hear anything from them after 3 weeks sending Lenovo the computer for repair, finally called them, find myself talking to someone in India who does not know anything. 2 days later, got a notice they shipped the computer
6. The battery shipped back can run only half hour now, not the original battery anymore.
7. 2 days later, the AC power adapter retreated into the case, cannot use it anymore.
8. Talk to them again, they said it is out of warranty.
9. Complained to BBB, but Lenovo refused to replace it

So after one year, this computer is complete dead. My 2005 Sony Vaio is still working. If I had spent $100 more, I could have picked up a much better computer and still be using it happily.

Conclusion: DO NOT BUY THIS COMPUTER, DO NOT BUY ANY LENOVO COMPUTER

You will regret if you do.

Other Thoughts: Should have bought HP, Sony, Samsung or other brands.
