1 out of 5 eggsLenovo's are usually good but....

Pros: I've had a few Lenovo's in the past and have been very happy with them - this one offers good overall performance, seemingly high build quality at a good price point

Cons: BAD TOUCHPAD - BAD customer service.

Other Thoughts: Ever since I received this G50 the touchpad would intermittently behave erratically. Given that this is an ELAN tp I thought this may be a driver issue, so I updated it, as well as tried different drivers nothing helped. So it seems to be a HW issue. Lenovo customer service was no help - this appears to be a chronic issue with Lenovo's using the ELAN Touchpads - so avoid any and all of these Lenovo's at all costs or you will me stuck with paying to ail it back to them.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable machine

Pros: High up-time without issues
great display
fast response time/boot time
everything I was looking for

Cons: Came pre-loaded with a fair amount of junk (but easily removed)

Other Thoughts: Overall I think this is a really nice machine. I bought this for my wife recently after 2 Asus laptops in a row died on us within 6 months each. So far this machine has been going strong without any issues, has no problems remaining up for an extended period, and is very responsive and lightweight for a reasonable price.

The only downside in my mind (as others have mentioned) is it does come preloaded with a fair amount of junk. Unlike others I just don't see this is a big deal. It's very easy to uninstall stuff and clean up the system. I didn't need to in this case, but historically I've been happy to go through a windows format if the bloatware really bugged me. I do that periodically on most of my systems anyway, so doing it from the beginning just doesn't seem unreasonable.

1 out of 5 eggsLot of bloatware is making laptop dead slow

Pros: Kind of ok. I cant configure and use the laptop to full extent because of slowness of the system because of bloat ware

Cons: - Lot of bloatware loaded and it tooks time to clean up the initial mess tbefore taking a recovery image. I dont know why lenovo doesnt consider user experience before loading this lot of bloatwares.
- I have 8 gigs and just the OS took 4 gigs (i believe this is beacuse of the bloatware). Still working on cleaning the bloadtware

2 out of 5 eggsOverbearing boloatware and a virus.

Pros: Solid build quality: acceptable sound quality, good keyboard, decent display. Overall, a good piece of equipment.

Cons: WHY ALL THE UNNECESSARY PROGRAMS? From the start, it is evident that there is no lack of programs on this computer. From DVD burners to an included Antivirus (McAfee), this laptop comes with it all. There is a problem though: all these programs are potentially harmful and take up storage. To make things worse, it came with a (borderline) VIRUS! I saw the most recent review (made a day after my purchase) about it including a virus and I hoped that would not be the case with mine but it is. It is the "Trovi" program which is first witnessed once opening Internet Explorer. This can be potentially very harmful and is categorized as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) by companies. Upon this revelation, I resorted to the included Antivirus, McAfee. I did a full scan but to no avail; no virus was found. This forced me to uninstall all the programs that came included (except the obviously non-malicious types) and installing my trusted Antivirus, Malwarebytes. the way this virus came included was most likely because Lenovo let a company install it, a huge mistake.

Other Thoughts: If the above was too much to read, consider this:
Overall good build quality but comes with harmful programs and a virus. Not recommended if you cannot properly cleanse the system.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed

Pros: Runs fast, very light, good size

Cons: Came to me loaded with adware and malware. The battery also is not charging now (a week in). The battery icon says 9% available (plugged in, charging). It has said this for quite some time. The machine is broken.

Other Thoughts: I feel as if I spent far too much money on what may as well be a desktop PC loaded with adware I have to systematically remove.

2 out of 5 eggsbattery stopped working

Pros: I looooove this computer, it's fast its light and i can program on it like it's nobodies business

Cons: The battery stopped working after about 3 months of use... It works but it won't charge anymore. I've rebooted, taken out the battery but it still won't work. I would reformat but I am in the middle of a school year so it's not really a good idea.

Other Thoughts: I really like this computer but it sucks that the battery just suddenly died. Shipping is not an option right now because I have to have a working computer so I will need to buy and other battery pack and hope that it works with this computer.
