    This review is from: Lenovo G700 17.3-Inch Laptop (59385692) (Personal Computers)

    Bought as a gift that will be used for web, email, running Office 365 (which it does NOT come with) and very light gaming or entertainment purposes. For that use, it seems like a great value.

    Pros:
    Display – 17.3 inch 1600×900 glossy display high contrast, colors look good
    Keyboard – The size of this laptop allows a large (for a laptop) keyboard and it’s comfortable to use
    DVD – Having a DVD drive built in is nice for installing anything not having to deal with a USB DVD drive
    Speakers – Played some music through them & they sound great for laptop speakers but max volume is still a bit quiet
    Build/Packaging – Very happy with the apparent build quality & packaging and with how Amazon shipped it
    Lenovo – The Lenovo web site is easy to navigate and find drivers/updates and I assume if you had a warranty issue between Lenovo and Amazon it’d be handled in a satisfactory manner
    Serviceability – Easily remove the entire bottom cover with only two screws to upgrade memory, hard drive, wireless, etc

    Cons:
    Hard drive – The 500gb hard drive included is fairly slow but I replaced it with an SSD and that made a huge difference in boot times. Even with the slower hard drive, once booted, the laptop was perfectly usable but installing updates/rebooting was much slower.
    Memory – It only comes with 4GB (4GB x 1) so I added another 4GB I had from an old laptop in the second slot

    Windows 8.0 needs to be upgraded to 8.1 via the MS Store:
    It comes with Windows 8.0 and you really do want to upgrade to 8.1 first thing. Doing this requires that you create a Microsoft account, get on the store and have the store actually notice that you’re eligible for a free 8.1 upgrade. Once you get it done, 8.1 + a start menu replacement (I’m using Classic Star which is free) is just fine. Actually using 8.1 working with this laptop has caused me to upgrade to 8.1 from Windows 7 on my own personal laptop because I do enjoy 8.1.

    Having to jump through hoops with the MS Store to actually get upgraded is a hassle. Also, if you’ll be replacing the hard drive or if you ever want to just format/reinstall the OS, you don’t have install media to do that with AND your Windows 8.0 with free 8.1 upgrade has a key buried in the UEFI BIOS. I used RW Everything to extract the key but even with that key, I wasn’t able to proceed through a Windows 8.1 setup from scratch with a brand new Windows 8.1 Pro purchased through a discount I’m eligible for. I wound up just using the media & key that came with that new Windows 8.1 Pro – it didn’t cost me much but buying a brand new Windows 8.1 so you’ll have media/key adds a good bit to the cost under normal circumstances.

    Bottom line is that, hardware-wise, I’m impressed with what you get for your $ with this laptop. The display, keyboard and Lenovo name/support are great. Adding a little memory and even an SSD doesn’t cost much and then the laptop is really great.

    If you happen to have access to Windows 8.1 media/keys for some reasonable cost then you’re not left fiddling with the included 8.0-upgrade to 8.1 software and it becomes a great value. I have no problem with Windows 8.1 coming from Windows 7 and I’m enjoying using 8.1 on this and another laptop now and missing some features of 8.1 on my one remaining Windows 7 system (it’ll be upgraded soon too.)

    Decent Computer but Abysmal Software., December 14, 2013

    This is a really nice well equipped Laptop Computer. It even has an HDMI output which at this price was surprising. One problem is that the case is very slippery and I almost dropped the computer. Be very careful when handling it. The screen is large and bright (once you figure out how to turn the brightness back on). I am not sure why the Brightness was turned off in the first place as I’m running on AC power not Battery. I also had to adjust the cursor/mouse pad as it didn’t work very good out of the box and was slow and seemed to hangup. After adjusting it (from Control Panel), it seems to work ok now. The computer has excellent graphics, well equipped with 4gb of memory and a 500gb hard drive.

    Overall a very good value in a Laptop Computer if you can live with Win8.

    This will be the last Windows computer I ever buy and regret having bought this one. If I could buy a 17″ Android Laptop, I would. I would have bought a Mac but too expensive. Win8 is why Microsoft will go out of business. I have used every version of Windows all the way back to Win3. Win Vista was a mistake but Win7 fixed the mistakes and is a decent OS. It is not administrator friendly as WinXP was but it is stable and rarely crashes. Win8 is Microsoft’s attempt to match the success of the Android OS and missed by a country mile.
    The G700 is a nice reasonably priced computer with decent features but what good is that if it is difficult and time wasting to use? I am really surprised that the PC manufacturers allowed Microsoft to essentially destroy the Windows PC market. My next PC will either be another tablet with a bigger screen attached or a Mac.
    I have spent the last 5 hours updating and fixing this computer. First problem was that I could not update to Win 8.1, I had to force the G700 to Update Now to the 74 updates waiting for Win8. Then I was finally able to find the Win 8.1 Update App in the Windows store (now that was really intuitive – NOT). It is still setting up Win 8.1.

    Overall the ridiculousness, time wasting and difficulty of Win8 overrides whatever positive features this computer has. If you are one of the few that likes Win8 then you might really like the G700, it is really good value for the money.

    I got this as a gift for my mother and she loves it. It is very lightweight with a bright screen. The keyboard is easy to see and type on. She is very happy with this machine.
