This review is from: Lenovo G505, A4-5000M, 15.6″ Screen Spectacle, Notebook With 4GB Memory, 500GB Hard Drive, Windows 8.1 (Personal Computers)
So I don’t know it is not a disposable computer but maybe it should be. After spending several hours personalizing the computer, the keyboard stopped working. A call to Lenovo took care of the issue by doing a complete system reset. Frustrated and tired, I place of any further attempts to customize the computer until the next day.

The following long day finished with a black screen. Another call to Lenovo (who had no confirmation of the previous call despite collecting the SN and additional info 2x) and I was told it was a known malware problem. The rep said Microsoft had not identified the problem but Lenovo had issued a work around solution.

My solution was to return the computer for a refund. Thanks CompUSA and Amazon for a incredible no-hassle return.

In addition to the obvious software related issues, the apparatus did not feel excellent in my hands. It took two hands to open the screen, even as you wanted one hand to hold the base down in view of the fact that it was not effortless or smooth. The end result was using the corner of the screen to pry it up even as holding the base down…an awkward twisting motion that will undoubtedly lead to problems. There is no simple way to lift the screen from the middle or even from the sides.

The DVD drive has your predictable flimsy tray but Lenovo took it down a few notches by not providing any help to the surrounding case. Of course your hand falls on the tray when picking up the laptop and the give or flex in the plastic is very noticeable.

The keyboard was the highlight of the laptop, when it worked. Nice huge keys with plenty of space. One thing that would take some adjusting to would be the off centered fingerpad. Shifted left to accommodate the numeric keypad, the touchpad felt weird in its placement. If you have ever tried using Windows 8 with an odd feeling touchpad, you know the frustration of ‘charms’ just showing up!

In the end, it is Helenovo for me.
