Q & As

Lenovo G505 Laptop, AMD A4, 4GB RAM, 1TB, 15.6", Black 2.6 5 5 5
Dreadful product Dreadful product not for beginners. Loaded with old Windows 8, and many unwanted software items designed to fool the owner into impulse purchase. Upgrading to Windows 8.1 was very difficult, but happened after a long delay. Great support from John Lewis staff who exchanged the product for an iPad. User is now very happy. I am an engineer and well acquainted with PC's. 24 December 2013
not impressed screen and keyboard fine. Find it slow and it drops Wi-Fi connection frequently which is not a problem I have had with any other device. don't buy if you like playing Facebook games like Candy Crush, the computer just can't handle it. 21 December 2013
Excellent laptop.......But... This is a really nice laptop, it's fairly fast even though it is running windows 8. It has a very comfortable new style keyboard and lovely clear screen. But. It states in the discription that it has 2 x usb3 and 2 x usb2. Unfortunately it only has 1 usb2. This not the end of the world but still incorrect. Also the edge of the laptop is quite sharp and can hurt your hand if you use the mouse pad a lot. 17 December 2013
Quality feel, but depressing Windows8 Have had the G505 for 3 days, and it works well in spite of Windows 8 (or Windows 8.1, as is now installed!). However it would be a considerably more rewarding experience if the horribly intrusive Windows 8.1 were to be replaced by Windows 7. G505 is a remarkably comfortable machine in use. It feels sturdy, looks classy, and has the best laptop keyboard I have known since buying an expensive Sony Vaio some 8 years ago! Full marks to Lenovo; few marks to Microsoft! 07 December 2013
fair for the price tag Loses one star for the delivery experience - parcel was thrown out the back of the delivery van, parked right outside my property - something to note should you opt for .com delivery. The unit works fine despite its early experience of flight. Must compare this unit with similar Toshiba Satellite laptops. Main difference is the keyboard - more spacious on the Lenovo, and preferable over the Toshiba. Mouse pad not fluid, and as disappointingly unresponsive as the Toshiba everyday ones (also poorly performed) - second star lost here. I suggest those looking for a budget, everyday laptop spend a little more money (£50+) on an everyday (?) unit, in the next price range (£400+) up. Go in-store to try (and buy there, too). Not that bad an everyday, budget laptop (with Windows8, which is no more user-friendly than it was when new on the scene - I keep hearing about Windows8 improvements, but for everyday laptop use, windows 7 is so much more user-friendly). All things considered, this is an okay, reserve laptop, but not my first-choice unit. A disappointment really. Just make sure you buy in-store. Not all laptops survive flight as well as mine did, and live to surf the web, etc. 25 November 2013
