Q & As

Lenovo G505s Laptop, AMD A10, 8GB RAM, 1TB, 15.6", Black 4 5 13 13
Keyboard not satisfactory Seems a pretty good value laptop, but the keyboard is very unstable and not comfortable to use. It flexes badly on the left hand side. I have returned it. 24 August 2014
Nice product... Been a pc user for over 25 years and this little laptop seems real good value for the money. Very pleased so far. Would recommend this product. 20 August 2014
Great Fine, does the job. Easy to use. Just what I needed 20 August 2014
Pleasure to use Just use it for mail, Google and photos/music storage.I was worried about changing to Windows 8, but I have found it easy to use and fairly quick for searching and loading up. Very pleased. Great value!! 19 August 2014
Reliably good The laptops are so good all round I bought three of them 13 August 2014
Good value laptop Got this 4 weeks ago as a replacement for 9 year old desktop system. Much quicker than my old desktop and keyboard is easier to use. Had new laptop set up by a tech expert - he recommended to set it up to act and look like Windows 7 but can switch to Windows 8.1 at the touch of a button. Very pleased with my purchase so far - only real gripe is the short battery life (about 3 hours before it needs a recharge). Other than that a perfect laptop for my needs and no regrets about buying it at a very good price. 06 August 2014
Lenovo laptop Good product - does what it says on the tin! Would have preferred Windows 7 to 8 but there you go - that's progress. Graphics fine/memory good. Stylish in black. 05 August 2014
Nice so far Still early days with this laptop although much nicer than my 5yr old Acer which it has replaced. Keyboard takes a while to get used to. There seems to be a lot of stuff that I will never use so probably too much for a basic web browser and email user. Very quick to start up, Next to no instructions so you have to try everything to see how it works. Very good screen and very clear picture quality, not really used much for music. Shut down is a bit awkward compared to older systems. Overall I am happy so far with this product. 29 July 2014
