Lenovo G510 Notebook Review

 

Fat office worker. Solid computing power, user-friendly maintenance options, and a good keyboard is what Lenovo's G510 offers for 500 Euros (~$681), and only 440 Euros (~$599) is due without a Windows operating system. Our report reveals whether Lenovo...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good with work

 

Overall, after installing the ssd and re-installing windows, the laptop does exactly what I want it too. Everything runs as its supposed to now but it took a little bit of work and research. Its worth it if your willing to put the time into making it...

The price on this computer is very good for the hardware (read cons about software). The keys feel responsive, the trackpad isn't the greatest but does what its supposed to, and the speakers are surprisingly good ; I am usually able to get about 4...

When I first got the laptop, it was loaded with bloatware (superfish and another called adsfree) and I got so sick of it that I re-installed windows 8. I would highly recommend anyone else who buys a Lenovo laptop to do the same. Their hardware is...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Would have been a great case!!!

 

Great price for the specs

Bricked in one month of ownership. Could not get it started even to get to the bios page. Would just die after 3 seconds after pushing the power button

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

Great price for the specs if you don't mind it being a brick after a month

Bricked just after one month of ownership. Laptop will not even load the bios screen as it shuts off after 3 seconds of pressing the power button

A Capable Laptop

 

1TB of hard drive space is definitely enough space for a laptop to have, although with a 5400 rpm HDD, don't expect speedy file access times. I personally switched the hard drive with a 240GB SSD, and it works great. The chassis is easily accessed with...

This laptop has very capable processing power and a good chassis/keyboard setup. The graphical capabilities are built into the Intel processor, so they're not anything noteworthy, but I'm at least able to play some moderate games on it. Additionally,...

The screen resolution leaves something to be desired. The resolution is 1366x768, which is pretty noticeable now that most screens and laptops come in 1920x1080. I'd like to know if it can be manually replaced with a higher res screen, but I didn't see...

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...

powerful for the money

I love it

 

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...

Slim, sleek, nice screen, touch-screen, quick, DVD player, works like I need it to. I have no complaints or regrets

Bloatware - but all companies load their bloat and hope you'll keep it. Just uninstall the bloat and the computer's great again
