"I've been using Lenovo G500 for 5 months already, working on it almost every day from morning till evening. And here's my opinion:
Performance: This laptop is silet, quite fast and never gets too hot.
Features: It has some great extra features that other laptops don't provide, such as energy management with fan dust extraction - really great to avoid cleaning the laptop too often - and CPU monitoring, which notifies users when CPU reaches 70 percent. One small issue: the laptop doesn't have CapsLock led, which means that you may type with caps locked without even knowing it (e.g. when introducing passwords) - quite annoying at times.
Value: It does offer great value for the money spent
Reliability: It's a reliable laptop, although the screen remains blank sometimes after reopening the lid to "wake" it up - not sure why, it can also be a driver issue.
Overall, great laptop. I hope it's durable enough, so that I'll be able to use it as least a...decade?"
