Black Lenovo G500 weighs 5.7 pounds and 1.34 inch thick. Its lithium ion battery gives you 5-hour battery life in average use. Lenovo Energy Management provides long-term durability of the battery and time spent between charges, while OneKey Rescue System makes it easy to recover from viruses or any technical problems.

Conclusion: Lenovo G500 59385443 is a good value family computer with good performance, fast processor, decent battery life, soft keyboard, sturdy feel, HD picture and great sound quality. It has a nice quality webcam, runs quietly and starts up quickly. Sure it doesn't have a touchscreen, a backlit keyboard or the most powerful processor but for the price tag, you probably can't do better. So if you are on a budget and want something to get your daily tasks done, this is a great buy.
