"Bought this laptop in Dec 2010. Keys started going off about 6-7 months heavy usage. Replaced the keyboard and added 4GB more RAM -- suddenly laptop stopped working. Turns out mother board issue. Sent back to lenovo and got back within a week, with a new motherboard - and, basically, a wonderful laptop. It is POWERFUL machine, perfect for backpack or sleeve, fast, and sleek. Does not get hot at all - even after almost 4 hours of heavy usage. That iis wonderful, for people who use it on their lap for a long time... Except for the keyboard - which totally sucks - this laptop is a best buy, and Lenovo should bring it back with under a different name (if it already didn't)."
"I bought this laptop for my wife a little over a year ago. The keys are poor quality. If you were to take them off once, they would be ruined. The plastic frame is as flimsy as could be. The battery only lasts for an hour and it's only 1 year old. Now the computer just shuts off out of nowhere. Isn't it convenient that the warranty is only for a year and right after that year mark, everything goes to pots."

Owned Product:13-18 months
Operating System:Windows 7 Professional
Processor:Intel Core i5
Memory:4 GB or more
waste of money
Date:October 30, 2011
Cons: Build Quality, Battery, motherboard, bios
"My lenovo g460 age 1 yesr,performance good, not valueable laptop,problem battery c,not charge,new bios not stable, battery not charging and power keep disconnect 2 minutes when use direct power source to laptop without battery,send to service center they said motherboard need replace and cost me $350.after use 1 month problem appear, try fresh installed update all latest driver, problem not solved, this is my review n this is 1st n last use this product."
"i like this laptop. doesn't look cheap. it doesn't scream look at me. it is light- can carry it the whole day in my backpack like nothing. the mousepad is great- has a good feel to it. the screen is clear, color is right. the only feature i can't get into yet is the face recognition- takes too long to get a read. anyway, for what i need on a day to day basis, this is the laptop for me."
"We bought this as a back-up computer and are now using it to program routers and take care of system maintenance. We like it. Didn't expect too much because of the price - but have been wonderfully surprised."
"I got this system for my brother and i used it for some time. I really liked the fact it not very heavy. Compared to my HP battery on this system holds power very well and the performance of the system is breeze. Keyboard is good and it has all the necessary ports. No fan noise and the best part is no unnecessary crapware preinstalled with this one.
I was little worried about the build quality but it really working well with out any issues. only one issues i have is webcam, i wish it had a nice webcam, the pictures are little grainy if the light is low."
"It's really a great laptop especially in hardware configuration. i5 Intel core and upto 4G memory boost the performance for a big step. Simple and easy to use. Compare to Thinkpad and other series, not much features for G460. It seems a little bit unnecessary to implement so many security apps like veri-face. Overall, it's very comfortable to use and most important is the high price performance."
"I was shocked by the battery life and stability of the machine given the size and the processor demands. Surfing the net yields 4 hours between charges and without web use the machine is good for 6-8hours. Windows 7 gets some of the credit but the G460 is a solidly built machine that can definitely stand up to the demands of the average home user or student. I am very happy with the purchase as this is our second Lenovo G-series in the house now."
"When our old computer died, I was overwhelmed at the prospect of purchasing a replacement, so I asked the technology person at our local high school, what he would suggest. This was the computer he recommended, so I bought it and both my high school student and I are very pleased with this purchase. Personally, I don't understand computers too well, but it has given me no problems and my daughter, who uses it all the time, is very happy with how it performs."
"Bought the laptop about 7 months ago. This was my first Lenovo product and I'll never buy anything else. The price compared to the feature set are uncomparable to anybody else in the market. Even the budget computers are made with the latest technology, which is hard to find in a manufacturer. Most companies are more interested in selling their inventory regardless of what components make up the device. I found Lenovo to always have the most up to date processors so it really makes purchase easy because you know you're getting quality. I have recommended Lenovo to multiple family members and all of them are happy with their purchase."
Cons: lack of numeric section on keyboard, repeated pop-up of lenovo ad
"I have had my Lenovo G460 since March 2011 and have been VERY satisfied. It has everything I need for my personal and (some) professional activities. The only thing this laptop doesn't have is a numeric keyboard on the right side of its keyboard. BUT, I have gotten used to having to use the numerals above the QWERTY keys. The price was great and even the battery is keeping a charge for longer than I'm used to!"
"I bought lenovo g460 recently. My previous laptop was a Acer. I bought this mainly because it had good stuff under the hood for a low price. It was a good buy. There were reviews I read before buying about a problem in touch pad but I found no problem. I am not using a external mouse. I am not using the windows 7 installation but I installed Kubuntu linux and this laptop is greatly compatible and made is work with a few tweaks. I'm not sure about the build quality. I've only used it for 3 months. I do not particularly like the way lid closes."
"This laptop is worth more than the internet gives it credit. I researched a TON before purchasing a laptop and the reviews on this one were slim and not very detailed. The specs are great as anyone can tell but the software, hardware and tools that are inside this computer is what makes it a gem. With the Lenovo enhanced experience for win7 the computer is a breeze, it is so fast and light it almost make me giddy. The build quality of this laptop is impressive, sturdy with a well thought out design. This laptop is such a hot deal for the price I got it($582 with a -$300 coupon). I am so happy with this computer I plan on buying Levono computers from now on. PLUS the Lenovo technical support is excellent, much better than HP(my old computer company).
The only complaint I have is that I wish the battery lasted longer(3 hrs for mine) when the specs online said four. I will also be curious to see how this laptop stands up over time, I have not had it long and cannot tell you if it is durable over time but right now I do not see anything that has potential problems.
Overall this computer has no problems that I can see, the fan is virtually silent, the processing speed is outrageously fast, and the face recognition software is so cool. Lenovo you have made me the happiest customer, thanks!"
"I received this laptop as a valentine's day present from my boyfriend because he knows how much I love Lenovo computers and my previous dell was busted. It was kind of generic looking on the outside but the processor is fantastic! It runs programs quickly. The display screen was nice and bright. The storage is more than sufficient for anyone with basic computing needs and does well with my design & graphics software. The screen arrow freezes occasionally but if you touch the red line to the right of the touchpad, it comes back to life. Overall, it was a great buy."

Date:March 14, 2011
Cons: Build Quality
"I like this laptop, compared to the price amount but i guess the touch pad the left side and right side click is of metal type and makes noise and i was forced to use external mouse otherwise it doing great"
"Excellent value, runs fast and reliable. The built in DVD allows easy software installation and is convenient for viewing movies. I have friends that have chosen to go the Ipad style but they are very limited on use, my sister has one and she can't even print to her existing printer! I would recommend Lenovo."
