Reviews for the Lenovo G40-80FY005BUS

50% Lenovo G40-30
Source: Computer Shopper English
Though the Lenovo G40-30's midnight-black appearance makes it blend well in corporate and other professional environments, it's a subpar performer. The G40 might be more attractive if it were a unique entry, but it's just another member of a growing pack of ultra-affordable Windows notebooks.

60% Lenovo G40

With the Lenovo G40, you get a capable 14-inch desktop-replacement laptop that will handle your basic home productivity workload without putting much of a dent in your budget. It's thin and light enough to shuttle around the house or office and will last the better part of a working day between charges, but its miserly memory configuration means you'll have to be patient while it struggles to complete multimedia tasks. Additionally, its somewhat small hard drive will likely fill up quickly if you use it to store lots of multimedia content.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


55%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
