  • The G505s comes with a number of connectivity options. You can connect to an external monitor, projector or HDTV using the VGA or HDMI ports.

Q & As


Lenovo G505s Laptop, AMD A8, 8GB RAM, 1TB, 15.6", Black 3.3 5 3 3
Very disappointed I bought a Lenovo G505s this week. After many hours setting it up I discovered a fault: the wifi signal is fine when the power cable to the lap top is unplugged, but as soon as the power cable is plugged in the wifi slows down to such a slow speed as to be unusable. The technical support line spent several hours trying to fix it through reinstalling drivers etc., and then concluded it must be a faulty machine. I arranged for a replacement which arrived today: it has exactly the same fault. Since I require the wifi to connect to the internet in my office this makes the lap top unfit for purpose. I am sadly having to arrange for a refund. I would advise against buying this model of laptop. 25 January 2014
Sleek & Powerful If you are looking for a laptop computer which provides exceptional power, this latest model from Lenovo is a must buy. With 8GB of memory, you can carry on working efficiently for extended periods if necessary. The addition of Dolby speakers means that you will be immersed in audio of the highest quality whether the laptop is used for work or fun. 15 December 2013
