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.
80% Lenovo G500s review

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.

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.


79%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
