    Had a Dell Inspiron 6400 for 6-7 years big and heavy and on its way out,Lenovo is so much lighter & the design is modern.
    Great keyboard & screen,fully recommend it.
    Can't get on with Windows 8 so my Grandson partitioned the hardrive & put Windows 7 on, now I can start up the usual way.

    Lenovo G505sAsk an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the G505s

    1. A shopper asked on
      Will this laptop play sims 4 please
      1. Ray replied on
        looking at the requirements,it exceeds the minimum.I know from personal experience that it can play star trek online perfectly well on mid range graphics settings-and star trek recommends a better graphics card than the sims4 does(radeon x1800).
        So the game should work fine,but contact EA help with the graphics card details on the G505s just to be certain
    2. Max asked on
      does the laptop come with the basic Microsoft office applications such as word, outlook, excel?
      1. Jack replied on
        It does NOT come with basic Microsoft office applications.
    3. A shopper asked on
      Does the laptop get hot when you use it? I've done some windowshopping and i've noticed that AMD laptops were very hot,doing basically nothing.
      1. James replied on
        its does not get hot at all. Ive also got a new amd envy with an A10 and thats fine as well. But if the laptop has a dedicated graphics card they should not get as hot due to less word load from one processor.
    4. A shopper asked on
      I want to change boot sequence but cannot get into bios. Tried F10 or F2 and Dell, none works
      1. Jack replied on
        Try pressing F1, each different brand of laptop each have different buttons needed to press to get into the boot menu .
    5. A shopper asked on
      Does it has an interchangeable graphic card?
      1. Andre replied on
        The APU has AMD's Radeon GPU.
    6. Daniel asked on
      Will it run WoT - world of tanks in maximized settings?
      1. James replied on
        Unfortunately I only use the laptop for music playback in a radio studio, and for compilation of playlists using a spreadsheet, but somehow I doubt it, without extra memory
    7. Ron asked on
      hi im looking for a laptop for gaming the games like Battlefield 3,Battlefield 4 will the Lenovo G505S run these games ?
      1. derek replied on
        not into gaming but don't think so. laptop is quite slow for normally browsing.
      2. Andre replied on
        Ignore that comment, yes this laptop has the technical specs to run these games. The fan will be loud and you won't be on high settings, but yes you can.
    8. A shopper asked on
      I was thinking of buying this laptop for playing Minecraft and other games on it, just wondering if it was good at running Minecraft and such?
      1. Martin replied on
        My son plays Minecraft and the latest 3D games quite happily. Runs Batman Origins and all other games he has tried - just make sure the drivers are up to date for the graphics card
      2. vlatko replied on
        ofc it will run it,almost every new game this laptop can run it,,,Im playing League of Legends on max graphics
