The limited battery life is disappointing, but that's not a fatal flaw since a large laptop like the G505s isn't going to spend a lot of time out and about anyway. Other features, such as performance, screen quality and the comfortable keyboard, are all good for a laptop in this price range...

Lenovo G505s-20255 More would have been possible: Lenovo's G505s-20255 cannot keep the promise it makes on paper in practice. Particularly aggravating is the CPU's obvious faulty clock management, which leads to performance losses of up to 50 percent....

It's still potentially good value if you're prepared to upgrade the memory the moment you buy it. But ultimately, it doesn't quite shine enough to make us want to recommend it. Whatever you want the machine for, there's going to be a more focused offering available that will shine where this fails to.

Пришло время подытожить все вышесказанное. Несмотря на причисление Lenovo G505s к классу так называемых «тонких» лэптопов, такой разницы в толщине и весе, как между Lenovo ThinkPad T431s и T430, у сегодняшнего героя и Lenovo G505 нет. Протестированный...

Verspild potentieel. Een betaalbare multimedia laptop met een quad-core APU, 16 GB RAM en Crossfire graphics - dat klinkt bijna te goed om waar te zijn. De Lenovo G505s lijkt een bijna ongeëvenaard prijs-prestatie mededinger op papier, maar hij heeft ook...

Un potentiel énorme gâché. Un ordinateur portable multimédia abordable comprenant un APU quad-core, 16 Go de mémoire vive RAM et un système double carte graphique Crossfire : cela semble presque trop beau pour être vrai. En effet, le Lenovo G505s semble...

Potencial malgastado. Un portáitl multimedia asequible con una APU quad-core, 16 GB de RAM y gráfica Crossfire - suena casi demasiado bueno para ser verdad. De hecho, el Lenovo G505s parece sobre el papel un paquete precio-rendimiento virtualmente...

Potenziale sprecato. Un laptop multimedia con APU quad-core, 16 GB di RAM e grafica Crossfire. Suona troppo bello per essere vero. Di fatto, il Lenovo G505s sembra essere un dispositivo senza pari, sulla carta, ma ha diversi problemi...

Le grand écart. Lenovo choisit un APU AMD de la génération Richland pour sa nouvelle série G505s. De plus, il y a aussi une carte graphique Radeon GPU et les deux solutions graphiques coopèrent avec la connexion Crossfire. On dirait que Lenovo essaye de...

Lenovo G505s Il Lenovo G505s offre tutta la potenza necessaria ai normali compiti quotidiani. Inoltre, il dispositivo non si scalda molto in attesa e utilizza l'energia in modo economico. Il notebook è silenzioso anche con i carichi più pesanti. La...

Pillado en el medio. Lenovo eligió APU's AMD de la generación Richland para la nueva serie G505s. Además, ponen una GPU Radeon dedicada en los portátiles, así que hay dos núcleos gráficos funcionando en Crossfire. Suena a que Lenovo está ofreciendo un...
