I'm a presentation technology specialist and I use laptops everyday for presentations and normally I would never buy a computer that costs less than $1200. Anything less than that and you're asking for performance problems on all fronts; processor, RAM, graphics and hard drive.

First things first, this computer only cost $549 dollars or less.

This computer is not a workhorse by any means and is ugly as only a mother could love.
That being said, this is what can you expect.

Flimsy plastic body construction? Check.
The plastic looks and feels as cheap as what you paid for. Think of a low end DVD player that you can pick up at Walmart for $30 dollars. This computer does flex on the bottom but as long as you don't handle it like the "American Tourister Gorilla" you'll be fine. It does have a raised texture pattern on the surface to help you grip it better. The screen does not have a latch to secure it but that is not detrimental to me. One reviewer commented that the DVD drive popped open a couple of times because of the flexing of the case and I would refute that claim and suggest that it happens when a thumb or finger presses the eject button, inadvertently, as has happened to me.

Intel shared video performance? Check. Poor lcd viewing angles? Check.
The Intel chipset can use as much as a Gb of RAM to help with graphics. Mine is currently using 57Mb. This screen is great for direct viewing only. As for off viewing angles, I often laugh when people complain about this. How often do you view your work on a laptop from any position other than directly in front of the screen. I have been using it to watch DVD and Streaming movies on Netflix with no performance problems.

I'm a low end user. Checking email, some wordprocessing, watching DVD's, downloading music and films... you get the idea.
First, this is an ugly machine, but I've come to love it. When I first pulled it out of the box it looked so cheap I was checking my invoice to see if it could be returned. Over the near three months I've had it, it has really grown on me.
A reviewer stated that it's flimsy plastic. Hey buddy, I got news for you they're ALL plastic in this range, and this isn't flimsy at all. It does NOT flex when you pick it up like those faux, slick looking metallic ones that are magnets for fingerprints. And the raised texture surface pattern means no fingerprints. I've come to appreciate the ingenuity of this baby. It's like the people at Lenovo decided to do away with any pretenses of being attractive and focused on building a rock solid laptop, at a great price (I got mine at newegg for $400).
Being it's this basic, hardworking machine there are no frills. No DVI, no lighted keyboard, no fingerprint ID, no operational shortcut buttons for DVD/music playing. It's black, it has an on button (cheap looking), lights to tell you it's running and if you have the CAPS LOCK on. Surprisingly it has a webcam???
So if you're looking for a reasonably priced laptop for school or travel, you can't go wrong with this. It's fast and I work with multiple windows from multiple programs open and there's never a problem.

I'm just a casual user, so I wanted a cheap laptop that works faster than the one I bought 5 years ago. For under $500, I got a laptop that works and works pretty well.
Pros -
Has a number pad if you need to input data.
Shiny!
Windows 7 instead of Vista.
More RAM and hard drive space than my older computers combined.
~4 hours of battery life.
3 USB ports

Cons -
Shiny, but screen can reflect a little too much sometimes so it's hard to see at certain angles.
Keyboard has a tendency to double letters or drop letters sometimes. Never had this problem on my old laptop (Dell Inspiron 6000), and I just checked to make sure I have the newest drivers.
Mouse pad can be unresponsive sometimes, which annoys me to no end. Also not a problem I had on the old laptop.
Facial recognition program tells me to take my glasses off before I use it. How stupid does that sound to someone who is blind as a bat and NEEDS those glasses? (Only a minor con as I don't really care about the security. My friend has a laptop with a fingerprint scanner, which is more fun, but infinitely stupid unless you wear gloves when you handle your computer.)

Over the course of my college years, I have access to a few laptops, including this lenovo G550. It has very solid construction quality and runs very fast for normal use (e.g. office and web). It's quiet, looks cool, and has a nice screen. I would recommend this to any one who wants a solid laptop without paying an arm and a leg.

I have this notebook for about 6 months. All I can say is that for the price, it's well worth it. It's powerful for almost any common tasks, including running some nice games, watching hd movies, and coding. The keyboard is comfortable, and the battery is not bad at all. All in all, I am quite happy.
