Lenovo G505S 15.6 Inch A8 4GB 1TB Laptop. 3.9 5 11 12
Returned as faulty Sadly this laptop was faulty and had to be returned. Good build quality, looks good and keyboard feels great but software not working on the model I purchased. Cannot recommend this particular laptop but can recommend Argos customer service. 09 September 2014
Lenovo G500s, A8, 8.1 windows This product took 1 day to get to know the sensitivity of the key and touch pad. Windows 8.1 is not hard to navigate through. I bought this P.C. for my newly 6 year old son who is a Mario Nerd. After 2 days he has adapted and learned quite magnificently. I've not put the p.c. to much of a test I have basic needs of just pleasing my son. Battery life is a bit limited to 2-3 hours but this is fine with me as after this time of doing homework and then Mario it really is time to get off the p.c. 08 August 2014
Nice little machine This machine has a nice build, great keyboard and a clear screen. A little under powered but that is to be expected with the processor size and I knew this was likely when I bought it. The only real disappointment is that it does not have a dedicated graphics card as described under the spec. The onboard one is very clear and good for the type but does not meet my reasons for buying. If you don't need that this is a really nice machine for price. 23 July 2014
Lenovo G505S This is a laptop model which has as its foundation, the original IBM designed laptops so I was expecting a very good laptop. After this short while, I haven't been disappointed so I would recommend anyone looking for a well specified, reasonably priced laptop to look at this model. 17 July 2014
Missleading!!! The laptop is quiet good and i really like it but the description said that this laptop has a discrete GPU when it doesn't. But really like this laptop. 06 July 2014

My house has poor wifi signal and the computers can struggle to stay online so I put them on an ethernet cable. I cannot find the switch on this computer to turn off the wifi so that I can use the thernet cable on it.

Answer: 
Hi Starfire,

If you plug a ethernet cable into your laptop it should automatically use that to connect to the internet instead of WiFi, if it does not please follow the instructions in this link: http://its.uiowa.edu/support/articl...

I am interested in this little machine, but reading through the questions there seems to be conflicting info on the graphics card and it seems Lenova do two versions, one with a shared card and one with a dedicated one. Can you confirm this is the one with the dedicated HD 8570 2GB card?

Answer: 
Bit dissapointing then, as I researched the Graphics card staff member Charlie told us it had in his answer and bought the computer based on that and while the graphics are clear enough for everyday usage and for skype and things and the machine is nicely built, I now know that I have rather bought a pig in a poke in terms of what I need. I should have waited for your repl

Answer: 
Thank you for your question.

The Lenovo G505S 15.6 Inch A8 4GB 1TB Laptop will work with most printers as it uses a Window based operating system. There is not a single printer that is specifically recommended for use with this laptop.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer: 
Hi Chas"

Thanks for your question. Yes this does come with Windows 8 which is the operating system and is not a trial version. Office doesn't come included with this but does offer a 1 month trial of Office 365 Home Premium.

I hope that this helps answer your question
