Lenovo ThinkPad G500


It looks like a laptop. That's it.... Can't say anything about it's features because there wasn't the opportunity to discover or test them. It kept turning off at boot up stage

It didn't work. Sent back for a refund

It's all pretty good but I must admit I'm a bit useless around Windows 8

Nothing I can complain about

Lenovo IdeaPad G500


This machine was snaffled off by one of my kids before I had much of a chance to really get to grips with it, but for the short time I had it, it was a great piece of kit

Not a lot

Lenovo IdeaPad G500


Not filled with bloat ware, bundled software actually useful and simple and easy to get going

Didn't work with windows update out of the box. Had to manually upgrade to 8.1 (yes via the 6 Offline update files in order) however that's more Microsofts fault then Lenovo's. Simply a good laptop
