Review Lenovo G500s-59367693 Notebook

 

Cheap office notebook. The new models of the Lenovo G500s series

decent system performance; fast disk; 24 month warranty; low energy consumption

low-contrast screen; poor keyboard for Lenovo

A two year warranty is not common for cheap notebooks.

Lenovo G500s review

 

Lenovo's budget laptop returns for a second time with an Intel processor in tow, offering improved performance

Budget laptops were the dogs of the computing world a few years ago, but it's amazing what you can pick up for the cash these days.

Lenovo G500s (59373024)

 

Over the past year or so, this laptop has served me extremely well. As an incoming college student, I needed something powerful enough to serve its day-to-day functions extremely competently while not draining what little money I had. And on that...

Powerful for the price, runs some lesser AAA video games on low settings ; Comfortable keyboard ; Does most all tasks about as fast as you'd need them to ; Low price for what you get

Dreadful build quality, at the time of writing the charger port has completely broken free from the casing, which makes just plugging this thing in a struggle. The case itself is loosely put together and no amount of screw tightening can fix it ;...
