can't miss with this. Wanted two but limit is one.
The Lenovo G585 is playing in the office equipment league. It is supposed to manage everyday tasks such as chatting, surfing in the Internet, playing YouTube videos, watching DVDs and word processing. It's also good as a video player station in the living room, because it works quietly and has an HDMI port.
AMD E-300 Accelerated processor
15.6” HD screen
AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 integrated graphics
4GB DDR3 memory
320GB HDD storage
Integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
Integrated DVD reader/writer drive
2-in-1 card reader
Wanted USB 3 but can't complain for a sweet little HTPC. Darn shipping was $12 so with tax I'm at $207 @ 4:30 AM, it's been a long night. Windows 8 will play nicely with my Xbox 360 and WP7.5.
*correction, it likely has USB 3
1 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0, 1 VGA, 1 HDMI, 1 Kensington Lock, Audio Connections: Combiport (microphone and headphone connection in one), Card Reader: SD, MMC,

the hard drive is the weakest link in the chain. Starting applications or installers and accessing files is painfully slow. We checked it out and installed a used SSD (Crucial C300 64 GB, used price about 50-60 Euros (~$63 - $76)) into the notebook and were more than pleasantly surprised. The system ran much smoother. We recommend any buyer to replace the hard disk. The GPU is much more useful for another reason: It comes with an integrated video decoder (AMD UVD3 decoder). This takes over most of the work of the video playback. And this task it performs well. We played a test video (FullHD resolution, H.264) on the G585 and observed the CPU load. This was predominantly (significantly) less than 25%. Short-term peaks of up to 50% were also observed. It was a similar situation when playing YouTube videos of the same quality. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Revi...194.0.html
