Reviews for the Lenovo G500s-59367693

78% Review Lenovo G500s-59367693 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Cheap office notebook. The new models of the Lenovo G500s series are notably slimmer than models of previous series. The specs of our test sample are all right: Pentium processor, 500 GB hard drive, Windows 8, 399 Euros (~$527). The test uncovers whether only the case was scaled down or if the user has to live with other cutbacks.

Budget laptops were the dogs of the computing world a few years ago, but it's amazing what you can pick up for the cash these days. The Lenovo G500s, with its pokey processor, generous memory offering and large hard drive makes it terribly good value for money. The only problem you have is whether to go for this, or save £50 and go for the slightly less powerful AMD version - the G505.

Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge): In the mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
