Laptop Reviews – Lenovo G550 15.6-Inch Notebook


If you're looking for a laptop that has an affordable price and reliably reasonable functions, the Lenovo G550 15.6-Inch notebook is what you're looking for. Although the Lenovo G550 does not come with high-end features, it is ideal for anyone who is looking for a no-nonsense and straightforward laptop model.

To start off, the G550 comes with an Intel Pentium Dual-Core T4200 (2.00GHz, 1MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB) processor and a Microsoft Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium OS. The memory component consists of 3GB DDR3 1066MHz RAM and 250GB Western Digital 5400RPM hard disk drive. In terms of display and graphics specification, the G550 has a 15.6-inch glossy 16: 9 display (1366×768) and topped with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD.

The good thing about the Lenovo G550 is that it has an easy access panel to the internal part of the laptop. This basically means that upgrading and repairing the laptop will be an easy task as the laptop's memory, wireless card and hard drive etc. is easily accessible. On top of that, none of the components are pasted with a 'warranty void if removed' stickers, so, it'll be much simpler when you want to remove or add-on any laptop components.

For internet connectivity, the G550 is equipped with a Broadcom WiFi (802.11b / g), 10/100 Ethernet and a modem, enabling the user to have a more suitable internet connection option. Besides that, this notebook also comes with a SuperMulti DVD +/- RW Optical Drive despite being tendered at a reasonably low price.

The external design is somewhat elegant, sporting a black weave pattern instead of a dull smooth matte finish. After the cover of the G550 is completely made of plastic, but it feels like anything but plastic – it feels like it was made from a solid piece of material. Unlike any budget laptops that provide the user with bundle useless functions and shoddy workmanship, the G550 is pure quality. To think about it, for the price you pay for the Lenovo G550, it is more than reasonable!
