Bert, Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Terrific spec for the price, very fast and responsive. Great keyboard. No issues with Windows 8 - takes about 10 seconds from power-on to be ready to use, far more user friendly than many online opinions make it sound.
Bad points:
Touchpad is a bit twitchy, but either it settles with driver updates or I've got better using it as it's not an issue after a few weeks of use. Shiny finish of the laptop is a fingerprint magnet. Lenovo's backup system is confusing (it's not made clear but a factory settings backup is already on the machine out of the box).

Nice machine.
Bad points:
Wish I had never gone for windows 8. I would go back to an older system if I could. Touch pad very very sensitive so keep on going where I do not want to be!!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, fantastic quality keyboard, overall great quality look! Nice sturdy battery and charger. Dark bronze was the stated colour but it actually looks black with a nice shimmer. Really fast USB 3.0 connectors and hardly any noise from laptop running. Really, really impressed and fantastic value for money. I had done a lot of searching around and this was the best laptop I found!
Bad points:
I rated down on performance by one because sometimes my touchpad - mouse has a funny moment where its not reacting to my finger movements but then it suddenly chips in working again, so don't know whether this is a fault just yet, or whether its because the computer is busy loading. Oh and no capital locks button but actually this hasn't frustrated me hardly as much as I thought it would.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Fast, cheap, good look and feel
Bad points:
Windows 8 is not good without a touchscreen and takes a lot to get your head round. Took me a while to realise that I was in apps and not the full program (hence why I had no functionality). this is not an issue with the laptop, just the operating system. However the touchpad mouse is a nightmare. On first bootup it selects everything the pointer passes over which makes it unusable. Took 2 hours to find a workaround - Fn-F6 to disable the mouse then Fn-F6 again to re-enable it where it has something approaching normal functionality. I have a second G580 running Windows 7 which is fine. Windows 8/G580 bug???

Andrew, General home user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It was easy to set up.
Bad points:
The mouse pad has stopped working properly for more than five mins before need to turn on and off to make it work again. Works if you plug in a seperate mouse only. It keeps updating Windows to 15% then crashes! Once a week.
