Solid machine

 

So far it seems like a solid, great machine. The speed is impressive, the graphics are wonderful. The battery barely hits 2 hours. But everything else seems to be running wonderfully. Would have liked to see it with XP but it seems that all PC's now...

Screen, speakers, keyboard, speed

battery is very weak

get what you pay for.

 

the price can't be beat

machine can be painfully slow at times ; Touchpad is garbage--you can't type without simultaneous moving the cursor all over the screen. Touchpad doesn't automatically shut off when an external mouse is plugged in ; battery life is 2.5 hours tops

great deal at $379+$120 upgrade.

price, fast shipping&good warranty service. the "I"key fell off-sent to lenovo. they replaced keyboard &returned in 2 weeks. i added 1GBoff ram& installed hitachi 500gb 7200rpm harddrive w/clean install of win 7. cost $120 works great much faster

touch pad-disable using fn&f8 keys-using usb wireless mouse problem solved

Relatively solid workstation

 

We immediately wipe all new machines & reimage with W7Pro & volume licenses. This went easily with these machines & we were able to find the drivers needed for any of the special features.

Spec'd well. Seems to perform well. Has good hand feel and users comfortable with it

Have had some keys pop off one of the 3 that I bought. Easy to replace & have stayed on, but this concerns me. (-1 egg!)

some cons were inpart from my own negligence though i expected better.. was my fist laptop and im pleased with it

plenty of good stuff for the price at the time(~$300), see other reviews

not very sturdy- two of three of the usb port broke from the micro usb dongle i left inside and the support for the earphone outlet is damaged so it falls out ; static shock from the charge area. ouch ; fn key where ctrl should be- got used to it but...

Good Laptop!

 

Double your battery life with SSD! Did fresh install of Windows 7 32bit, made it 20 TIMES FASTER!!! Should be 4gb DDR3! MANUFACTURERS SHOULD NOT INSTALL TRASH ON THEIR COMPUTERS TO AVOID LOOSING ALOT OF CUSTOMERS!

Rugged like case ; Low Price ; Solid Construction ; Great Performance ; Great battery life

Had to replace HD to 320GB ; Original 160GB HD is not good ; Only 3GB and not DDR3 ; All drivers not compatible with 64bit Windows 7 ; Original Installed software makes computer VERY SLOW

Product Specifications

The Lenovo G555 is a nice mid-range laptop which has a large body, nice screen, and decent specs. It sports a 15.6" screen, and the ATI graphics can support HD content playback. The body is smooth and is one of the nicer-looking laptops out there. The keyboard is specifically designed to be ergonomic, something many other laptop manufacturers pay little attention to. It’s powered by an energy efficient AMD processor, which means that you get longer battery life. The 160 GB hard drive is a little smaller than most other laptops, but it still should be plenty big enough for most people. The Lenovo G555 strikes a nice compromise between a large, well-designed body, and a cheaper, lower-power inside.
