Review Lenovo G585-M8325GE Notebook


Netbook in XL. Lenovo packs netbook technology into a notebook casing and delivers the result at a price of 339 Euros (~$428). The operating system can be chosen freely, because there is none installed upon purchase. Whether Lenovo offers an enduring...

Cool Casing, Low consumption, Excellent battery life, Good keyboard, Quiet, USB 3.0, 24 months warranty, The notebook has two USB 3.0 posts and a good keyboard. Furthermore it operates very quietly most of the time. We also like the 24-month warranty

Bad display, Slow hard drive, Only Fast-Ethernet

This computer is weak


Keypad and touch pad are pretty good The 10 key is a great plus

Nice looking



If you want it to look nice and clean you have to touch it with gloves, the material from which is made get the fingerprint extremely easily

real slow


Overall I am happy, but the processor needs to be changed out, I should have figured at 279 dollars. However, I didn't want to spend the money and this is what I get

Great for the Money!!!!!


My 3 year old Acer was broken during a recent airline trip. So, I was looking for a replacement and since the specs on this one exceed what we had. We took a chance.

Less disk space than advertised


I purchased this online and thought it was a great deal. I checked the configuration once I received it, only to find that the hard disk space is 275 GB and not 320 GB as advertised. I will be returning this laptop.

Good Value - But Difficult to use with Windows 8


It had been a very long time since I have purchased a system, so just about anything would be an improvement. Hardware wise this system is great. I can't hear the fan and it keeps very cool. The large textured mouse pad was very nice. My only compaint...
