"Silly me. I never realized that Lenovo made so many different models of the G550. I own a model 2958 with 3 GB, Intel's Pentium Dual Core Processor. My model is sitting on the borderline. I am not a gamer and was simply looking for a machine that would handle my various programs from Microsoft and Adobe as well as cover the Internet. I've no complaints. I only regret that I didn't buy 4GB, the maximum amount of memory for this particular model. Still I wasn't stingy and picked up 3GB when I bought Windows 7. I suspect the reason for the mixed reviews are due to the people who went cheap on the cpu, didn't buy enough memory then ran programs calling for more. They don't make the G550 anymore but I would buy from Lenovo again. I take this machine everywhere in case some building like Starbuck's or the library is providing the Internet for its customers. On other occasions I can finish some work. There is no printer for this model. You can connect with one on a network but I can't find a printer for it. If you do an awful lot of printing it's a problem. It takes time to get use to the touchpad but I don't need a mouse. You might want to buy a carrying case for it. If you take it everywhere you won't regret it. If you're searching for a good laptop check to make sure that it comes with a good processor, carrying the maximum amount of memory for this particular model, use the best operating system, get the travel bag with a shoulder strap and you're ready for nomad life."

Great choice

"I love this laptop! I've had it a year and half, use it almost daily, and it has never given me a problem. The keyboard doesn't seem cramped like they are on a lot of laptops, and the keypad on the side is great - it was actually the reason I chose this model.
My (very small) complaints:
No red dot mouse in the middle of the keyboard. After using someone's ThinkPad, I really wish I had one!
The speakers are on the front edge of the laptop, placed so that if you're typing your arms muffle the sound slightly.
No SD card reader, which was apparently on earlier models of the G550.
None of these issues are deal-breakers, just inconveniences - pretty minor ones at that. Overall, great value! It's on the heavy side, but that's to be expected from the size of it. I carry it around a lot at college, and it's not a huge deal."
