Review of Lenovo G580 Laptop Model 20157 3rd Generation Core i5

Lenovo Laptop G580 Core i5

I am reviewing Lenovo G580 (Model: 20157) Laptop. I have purchased it on 18 Sep 2012 from a local vendor. I have paid Rs 34, 500 for a DOS based laptop as i did not want to buy along with new OS of Microsoft Windows 8 installed. I purchased a non-installed Windows and then installed a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit edition.

This laptop has 102 keys on keyboard which includes numeric keypad as well. On left, it has laptop lock socket, fan ventilator, VGA port, LAN RJ45 Port, HDMI (out) Port, 2 USB 3.0 Ports. On right, it has Power Socket, a USB 2.0 Port, DVD Writer and a 3.5mm Headphone Socket. On front side, it has 3 very tiny LED’s which includes for Power, Battery and Caps Lock and an SD Card Reader. Down in front bottom, it has 2 (Left + Right) Speakers which gives enough sound for music lovers.

This laptop is really good. It is very quite when is switched on. I have never seen such an amazing laptop ever. It also has one of the best feature called “Fan Dust Extraction” which extracts all dust inside laptop. I love this feature.

It has Core i5 processor which is a big plus point with the support of 8GB RAM. It gives a super fast speed.

Keys are little small as it also includes numeric keypad.

I am very satisfied with this product.

Update (July 2015):
After 1-1/2 years of purchasing it, it started creating a starting problem. It might not sending power to motherboard and hence i had to keep restarting it until it fully starts (and loads Windows). Once it starts, no issues but it was unpredictable after how many attempt, it would start. So i had to take it to repair center and they said that the IC on motherboard has became faulty and we need to mount it and replace it. They charged me almost Rs 3100 to do so. Mostly all Lenovo laptops have some sort of motherboard issues (after few years of usage) – that’s what i came to know after i talked with some of my other friends who has Lenovo laptops and had same sort of issues in past.

It has built in WLAN (for Wi-Fi connection) but if we format it and re-install windows, it does not install driver. If we try and install from repair disk or even after downloading compatible driver from Lenovo website, it still does not work. Only solution is to Go to Device Manager and click on Update Driver of Network Adapter and let Windows search online and then it would install WLAN correctly as Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter.

From other aspects, it is working fine. Even after 1-1/2 years, there is no noise or any other kind of issues. It is still as smooth as when i bought new.
