"I bought this computer to have dedicated to onsite consulting in remote offices. I couldn't be happier. The battery will literally last me almost two full days. If it had a back lit keyboard I'd have bought two! Fast processor and great connectivity across all platforms. If it doesn't have the driver software it'll get it for you in a matter of seconds. Low on hard drive space (mine is 500g) but I store everything externally. If you're looking for a solid business dedicated laptop - I recommend giving this one a shot."

Review 2 for Essential G580 Laptop - 59354099 - Dark Brown
"I've had Idea Pad G580 several weeks. Love the machine itself, but they totally ruined useability by having this touchpad. First it was trouble with Win 8, which I was not familiar with. Took a week and dumbed down Win 8 to Win 7 level which allowed me to find it was really the PS/2 Port synaptics touchpad was more of a problem. I now have almost all that turned off. was told the best solution is to buy a mouse! I do not buy an expensive laptop to then have to go buy a mouse. I have had Lenovo laptops in the past. I NEVER had to TUNE IT UP to get to use it. Good monitor, works fast, nice, the whole machine is nice but the touchpad truly RUINS it. Keypad is GREAT!"
