4 out of 5 eggsTwo for Two

Pros: - I've purchased two of these at different times for clients. The second time I purchased it for a client was based on my good experience with the first time. My first client has nothing but good to say about the PC and I spent enough time with both to give my own opinion as well.

- The G50-70's aesthetics are really sleek. It has a beaded top panel and a brushed-aluminum look on the inside. It's relatively light, and rather thin--if not comparing to Ultrabooks. Overall, it's a really nice looking laptop.

- The keyboard feel and layout is preferable. The only part of the keyboard that I dislike is the enter key; otherwise, Lenovo doesn't commit any cardinal sins some manufacturers do with keyboard layout. The keys are also responsive, smooth, and have a slight curve to the bottom, which at first I didn't like and thought strange, but you get used to them quickly and in the end are not a con but a pro. The touchpad is also nice, smooth and has two dedicated, thin left and right click buttons, which I prefer.

- I immediately upgraded this Lenovo to Windows 10 and, in both instances, it upgraded without a hitch. The touchpad was unaffected by driver issues, and Lenovo has relatively all proper Windows 10 drivers available for download off their website. All the drivers and integrated hardware worked without a hitch.

Cons: - The screen bezel is a little thicker than it should be. Nowadays bezels are shrinking more and more, mostly on IPS panels which this is obviously not, but the G50's aesthetics are slightly hurt by the thick bezels. Speaking of the screen; though not terrible, it's viewing angles suffer from quick color drain and fade. Again, though, on a budget PC like this, expecting an IPS or great screen is reasonableness.

- Lenovo includes some Bloatware, like all manufacturers, so if you'd like you can uninstall them. However, the Bloatware isn't nearly as bad as some other manufacturers with their third-party apps.

- There are some PCs in the same price range that have slightly better specs like an i5 or higher storage space or even 8GB RAM.

Other Thoughts: - In conclusion: The Lenovo G50-70 is a respectable bang-for-the-buck PC; good for college or school students or home users that don't want to spend too much but want a PC with enough chops to do most any basic/mediate tasks-except for gaming or workstation apps.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome basic laptop

Pros: Great specs for the price

Long battery life for basic tasks

Cons: The left mouse button wore out quckly. It still works but is a definite difference from the less-used right button.

Other Thoughts: I really question how they fit so much laptop into this price range. The HDD is quite slow (like most) so I would recommend picking up an SSD if this will be your daily driver.

Pros: For the price, nothing compares. Great looking design, very sleek. With new HDD and RAM this machine screams, more on this later. Very good screen for a laptop, good contrast and low glare even from weird angles, which is where most laptops don't compare. Stays pretty cool even when playing games for hours.

Cons: All the left side ports (USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, Ethernet, VGA ports are pretty crammed together, making it hard to occupy many ports simultaneously, especially the 2 USB ports, luckily there is a third USB 2.0 on the right side.
Battery life is nothing to brag about, but it's only 4 cell so kinda knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: I bought the barebones version of this in hopes to upgrade the HDD, the RAM, and the processor with laptop parts I was able to get my hands on.
The HDD and RAM were a breeze, I bought an WD BLACK2 Dual Drive (which I highly highly recommend) and upgraded it to 8GB of RAM as well as a clean installation of windows 8.1 to make this thing screaming fast, the only problem was the processor, after opening the laptop and voiding the warranty, I found the proc to be built into the motherboard and NOT up-gradable at all. this was odd to me, as all my other laptops had removable processors. just an FYI if you are thinking of upgrading. But i got over this, and am sticking with the i3, the other upgrades make this thing still so fast. I love this little machine now.
The last thing is the keyboard may be something to get used to. I bought this for my girlfriend who is used to Acer laptops and it took her a few days or more to get used to the layout of the keyboard.
Overall, I recommend this to anyone who wants a budget laptop (Not for the avid gamer obviously.) WIth the small and inexpensive upgrades, this thing could easily be worth $700+

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, Inexpensive Laptop

Pros: Light, quick, everyday laptop. Handles normal tasks like web browsing and video or music playback with no issues. 6GB vs 4GB for RAM keeps windows from bogging down.

Cons: None that I can think of. 500GB hard drive is small, but for less than $375, totally expected. Manage your expectations - this is not a gaming laptop.

Other Thoughts: I am deployed to the desert and my laptop met a violent end. I got this one, oriignally as a temporary replacement. I would just get something "better" when I got home and give it to my mom or something. After using it for a few weeks, I think I'll keep it for myself. It does everything I need without a hiccup. Great little (specs not size) machine that doesn't miss a beat. Props to Newegg for being one of the few companies that ship computers to APO addresses. Mine got here 9 days after ordering - Outstanding!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Budget Work Laptop

Pros: I purchased this laptop to serve as a general use work laptop. I am NOT gaming on it. I have installed my own operating system as well. I am using the laptop for network scanning, programming, general office work, email, skype, and web browsing.

For my uses, this laptop is perfect. It has everything you could need for most computer work. I had it all configured and running exactly how I wanted with all updates installed within a couple hours. It runs smoothly and the extra ram allows for plenty of multi tasking.

Also, experience the wonder that is the Novo Button. I had never heard about it before. You press it when the computer is off and it boots straight to Bios. So nice.

Cons: Note I have had this laptop for 1 day so I cannot comment on its longevity. Although, looking at my friend's ancient and somewhat damaged Lenovo he still uses constantly, I have high hopes.

The battery life is a bit short. You can squeeze out 3 hours at most. Certainly not the worst though, average laptop battery life of a laptop is 3-5 hours.

Installing a separate operating system was a bit annoying due to UEFI, but that is not really the fault of the computer itself. If you're interested, you just need to switch over to legacy booting in the Bios, but make sure you switch it back when you want to boot Windows 8 or you'll get scary errors. The Novo Button makes getting to Bios and doing this a breeze.

Other Thoughts: To answer questions that show up in the Q&A a lot:
This is NOT a touch screen.
This does NOT have a backlit keyboard.
This DOES have a number pad.
This does NOT include a Windows Recovery Disc.

5 out of 5 eggsNice bang for the buck

Pros: Met exceptions with zippy enough mid-range performance @
< $400.

Decent graphics quality.

Nice looking. It looks and almost feels metallic.

Easy access to internal parts for performing a drive swap.

Cons: Re-installed 8.1 to purge the bloatware and install a SSD but the drivers were easy to find so it all went smoothly.

The trackpad is kind of annoying but I expected this after reading the reviews on the Lenovo site.

Other Thoughts: The relatively new Windows 8.1 Media Creation Tool makes rebuilding OEM machines like this fairly easy. Make sure you create the USB with FAT32 for UEFI support.

The previous reviewer buys a Win 8.1 PC and proceeds to complain about it? SMH with bemusement.

3 out of 5 eggsLenovo G50

Pros: It is small handy real computer

Cons: I hate Windows 8 and the computer is burdened with it also.

Other Thoughts: turning off the touch pad was a major pain. I'm using a wireless track ball
