Lenovo G505 Laptop
If you´ve been thinking about replacing that trusty old laptop then the Lenovo G505 is an ideal candidate. The basic specifications are impressive for a budget machine – AMD E1-2100 processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500 GB hard drive, DVD burner, fixed and wireless network connection, built-in webcam, bluetooth and Windows 8.1 installed!

But first let´s address the elephant in the room – Windows 8. Having grown to accept Windows XP/7 the new “metro” tile style Windows 8 is somewhat of a culture shock for many. Sure, a lot of people have been put off upgrading their machines because of it – but should you be?
One of the biggest complaints has been the loss of the much loved Start button – but there is a stripped down version in 8.1, and Microsoft has promised the return of the original in a future upgrade.

The Lenovo has a 15.6 inch widescreen LED display with a maximum resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels which produces sharp images and bold colours and re-produces your HD content crisply. And if you want to watch your HD content on your TV it even has an HDMI port to connect to an HD TV for full screen viewing.

There´s no skimping on connectivity with 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, RJ45 LAN port, VGA monitor connector, HDMI out for modern monitors/TVs and a Multi Card Slot that accepts SD, MMC cards. So there should be no problem connecting your favourite USB mouse or getting the photographs from your SD camera card.

Battery life is pretty good too, just under four hours during average web / gaming use. You can also adjust your battery usage to your needs with the Lenovo power saving settings utility – so it´s possible to stretch this even further.

The keyboard and trackpad also perform well – the trackpad is big and responds accurately and also offers multi-touch support for easy browsing. The keyboard buttons are soft touch and virtually silent with a spacious layout. And weighing in at just 2.5kg it won´t feel like you´ve got a breeze block balanced on your lap either.

Verdict

The Lenovo G505 15.6-inch Windows 8.1 Laptop PC covers all the bases, whether you want a multimedia pc to play your HD movies, surf the web or chat with friends on Skype the Lenovo provides the power and flexibility to cope with ease. And as with all of Lenovos´ products it´s solidly built so should be good for years to come!
