Lenovo G530

 

Let's start by stating the obvious: At $499 for a 15-inch budget laptop, Lenovo's IdeaPad G530 won't win any benchmark sprints. For a notebook to get into this low price range, sacrifices have to be made and corners cut. The primary concern with a...

Very inexpensive ; Good build quality

Mediocre screen

The IdeaPad G530 is functional and durable enough for an very inexpensive business laptop, but that's about it.

Lenovo G530 Review

 

The chassis is constructed entirely of plastic, but where most budget notebooks might feel flexible or flimsy, the G530 feels like a solid block of sturdy material. When talking about the palm rest on most notebooks, including ThinkPads, notebooks with...

Excellent build quality ; Good configuration for the price ; Comfortable keyboard ; Simple, let good looking design

No HDMI or eSATA

The G530 uses a Synaptics touchpad that has good sensitivity and no discernable lag during use. The surface texture is a smooth matte finish that is easy to slide a finger across even when moist. The touchpad buttons are large and positioned directly...

Lenovo G530 Notebook Review

 

Lenovo is a company that offers a wide range of notebooks. From multimedia notebooks, to gaming notebooks, to value notebooks to netbooks, Lenovo has their bases adequately covered. We've spent some time with a few of the company's prior offerings, but...

Classy Design ; Beautiful Display ; Full-size Keyboard ; Excellent Value ; 3GB of RAM ; Quiet and Cool

Gaming Performance ; Subpar Battery Life ; Annoying Lenovo Software ; Plain Inside ; Glossy Panel

In Futuremark's PCMark Vantage test suite, the Lenovo G530 performed admirably in comparison to the more powerful (and far more expensive) systems. In the 3DMark benchmark, the G530 just barely completed the test. We wouldn't expect much more from the...

Lenovo 3000 G530

 

Characteristic of Lenovo, the G530 offers unmatched build quality and a very good keyboard. But it comes with a high price tag.

Impressive build ; Very good keyboard ; Software bundle

Heavy ; Costly in comparison

The Lenovo G530 rounds up our Top 5 budget laptop category. It is a touch expensive at Rs. 39,500, but definitely consider it if a good keyboard and exceptional build quality are paramount to your laptop buying decision.

Lenovo G530

 

The Lenovo G530 is a stylish and affordable notebook for the varsity student looking to enrich his or her studies.

Stylish looks and its affordable.

A bit heavy to lug around.

Lasted 3 years

 

I got this laptop 3 years ago and it served me well during college. After a while it started getting a bad case of WinRot, and it can now barely run basic programmes. I have to open up task manager to end any unneeded processes before I open up a new...

Simple, runs older games, good for school

Not sturdy, no 10-key, gets very hot

Lenovo is crap..

 

I bought a similar Lenovo system a couple months back. It stopped working (no POST) about 3 weeks back, and they requested I send it to their depot. They have had the system since October 19, and I never received a call or email concerning an update....

Very Disappointment

 

The laptop stop working after only 2 months of occasional use. It won't turn on using power adapter or battery. Worst of all, there are tons on Lenovo service depot in Toronto but all of them refuse to service this model as instructed by the head...
