Super nice laptop w/ SSD upgrade 8/25/2016 2:03:12 PM

Pros: Very durable, it generally stays in my backpack and i've set my bag down hard plenty of times and not a scratch even though its plastic. For the price, you really can't go wrong with this laptop

Cons: Was a little slow w/ HDD and windows 8, but SSD upgrade and windows 7 this thing is lightning fast!!!

Great and versatile 10/18/2015 11:43:17 AM

Pros: Versatile
Upgradeable
Easy to work with
Fits most laptop cases
and much much more

Cons: Came with superfish.

Overall Review: I've had this laptop for over a year now, and I can say nothing but great thing about it. I've gone from windows, to linux and back multiple times. It never gives me any issues with it. I Put in 16GB of ram, and a WD black2 and it works like magic. I got everything I needed or want through new egg.

Good laptop but problems with arrival 9/23/2015 3:02:47 PM

Pros: -Excellent laptop for the price. Very fast for managing your stuff, and works well with medium gaming. I play the Clash of kings mod of Mount & Blade warband on high settings with no problems at all.
-Nice plug placements.
-Slick-looking
-Thought there was quite a bit of bloatware, They really didn't give me a problem once I upgraded to W10 and deleted them.

Cons: -After having examined it a little bit, I saw two problems with the screen. First, a vertical line of what I believe must be stuck pixels of green color. There's also a red point around the middle of the screen, but I can only see it when I'm playing a game. Must be something with the graphics card? how can I get a replacement? Is there another way of fixing it? Do I contact Lenovo or Newegg?

-Windows gave me some problems with the W8-W10 upgrade but it ended fine as far as I can tell.

Overall Review: -The keyboard is quite good, but the mouse-pad is lacking. It sometimes just freaks and you cannot control it. But who uses mouse-pads for 15.6''s anyway? The keyboard is space-efficient, but the f1-f12 keys are kinda awkward to use at first, but I guess I'll just get used to it or change my keyboard settings.
- Arrived a little late I think. Tho I understand that problems happen.
-Screen is ok.

Broken out of the box 6/12/2015 10:12:46 AM

Pros: Product looked good for goo price

Cons: Opened the box and the computer screen wouldn't turn on. I plugged it in into my tv and could see it fine on the tv but not the laptop. I tried calling customer support and was told the product team would call me the next day to try and help me fix it otherwise I could return it for a replacement. I waited by the phone for two days to hear from them and it never rang.

Runs great, just a lot of small issues. 5/18/2015 2:21:08 PM

Pros: Can't find a more well rounded laptop for this price.

I bought it for light gaming, college work and casual web browsing. I can do all three at once with no problems with this laptop.

I've had no issues with it. Runs just as well as you'd expect it with it's specifacations.

Cons: This laptop is big, bigger than I thought and causes a couple issues.

The keyboard is very spaced out and feels mushy compared to past keyboards I’ve owned. It takes a bit to get used to.

The screen resolution could be better for the size of the laptop. Upon close inspection, it looks slightly stretched out and causes some things to be a little fuzzy.

The plastic feels very cheap. There are also some sharp edges at the bottom of the monitor. The exterior Build quality just feels lack luster compared to other laptop's I've owned.

The trackpad is unresponsive, I use a mouse while operating the laptop.

As others have stated, LOADS of bloatware. Just takes a good 20 minutes to uninstall the various applications.

Overall Review: My cons may seem a bit critical but the laptop runs perfectly fine and you can comfortably use it hours on end. It’s just a lot of small issues that add up. I expected a better quality for a 500+ dollar laptop.

Surprisingly good laptop; great value 4/19/2015 1:47:31 PM

Pros: Lighter than previous laptops (Asus, Acer), very fast boot-up, 1TB drive capacity, very fast SD card transfer speeds, USB 3 works great.
Lenovo has fixed that malware issue.
The one-button recovery system actually works.

Cons: Of course, Win 8, (what is MS thinking?). Lid/screen somewhat overly flexible upon opening and waggles when there is laptop movement (such as in an airplane, etc.
.
The Win8 setup has you commit to a password tied to a Microsoft email account, but there is nothing in the documentation that tells you the machine will also use that password for the face recognition app.

Overall Review: After my first two laptops died from the same thing (power jack failure) I was looking for a replacement that used a different power connector scheme.
These have a USB-style rectangular connector instead of the barrel with a pin in the middle.
It looks like it may be more forgiving over time and provide (hopefully) longer useful life.
Since my last two laptops ended prematurely I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a replacement.
This Lenovo G50 was relatively inexpensive, screen looks good, and sound is both wider spectrum AND louder than the previous laptops, a nice surprise, since usually these things have woefully inadequate volume levels.

I was able to re-configure Win 8 thanks to a number of web articles, and now have a machine that runs quickly for business and media processing.
