Lenovo G510S (59RF0854)

 

This would have been a four egg review if I based it solely on the power of the machine. It handled several games, 3d modelling, a handful of programming IDEs including Visual Studios and Photoshop like a boss. If I could have kept it running for more...

This is the perfect laptop for me and what I wanted. I hate bulky laptops and this one is not. Bonus, still has a DVD player. This is now my daily everything computer because it's so good. If you're needing something special research it out first to...

Good Laptop

 

Very happy with the purchase, owned it for over a month now. I spent about 3 weeks shopping every where for a laptop and this one on new egg was the best I could find in my price range.

Good processor, runs great ; Lots of Ram, buffers large videos great and I can run plenty of programs all at the same time ; Graphics cards is decent, I get around 40 fps using the medium settings on W.o.T ; Touch screen! I did not care at all that it...
