Great for the Price, but not without issues. 04/03/2010
First of all, the value for the price is absolutely extraordinary, I have not been able to find a laptop under $500 that I would rather have than this one. The G550 is fast, lightweight, and the built in number pad is a great addition to an already solid and responsive keyboard. When running a 64bit OS it runs quickly and reliably, however there are some problems, see Cons.
The biggest problem that this laptop has is the touch pad. It is located partially under the left hand when typing, so the mouse can jump around the screen unexpectedly. When you try to use it, its responsiveness ranges from non-existent, to mediocre, and using a mouse will save you a lot of head aches.
Overall the Pros vastly outweigh the Cons, however this laptop is not quite as user friendly as it could have been. The only things that could really have been improved upon are the touch pad and the OS. The OS is an easy fix, the touch pad, not so much.
