You might have to check your internet speed.
So your previous post/rant/review is completely irrelevant.

I have this exact computer (bought it las time is was posted), and I am actually typing on it right now. It is a basic laptop for basic needs. It is not a high end gaming laptop. Internet, school work, office apps etc will work just fine. It does struggle on 1080 videos sometimes, but not too bad.
Downloads speeds are just fine, has wireless ac and is just as fast as my wired connections.
The Ethernet is a 10/100, so wireless is faster.
Bluetooth seems to work fine.
Some gripe about the 1366 x 768 display, but not an issue for me for what it is used for. Touchscreen is pointless IMO, but others may like it.
Sound is OK, speakers are bottom front
Battery life, I know I have used it for at least 4 hours on 1 charge before.
It does only have 1 USB 3.0 port, but at least it has one. It also has 2 USB 2.0 ports.

In stock form, a great basic system for school or internet browsing (what I use it for).

For mine, I added another 4 gigs of RAM ($10) and a 60 gig SSD I had (but 120 gig drives are going for <$40). To help with storage space, I ordered a HDD caddy to replace the DVD drive ($8) and used the 500 gig drive it came with for a storage drive. All components are easy to get too from the bottom cover held on with 5 or 6 screws. Boots fast, runs fine, has tons of storage. Works for me.

No real complaints on my part for the price.

Any questions just ask.


If price is the same, the one you linked is a little better. Newer and slightly faster processor, maybe a little better graphics. It looks like it may be DDR4 RAM, so if you upgrade that, it may cost a little more than DDR3, Just something to keep in mind. Otherwise they seem about equal.
Touchscreen is up to you. I think I have used it twice in the month and a half I have had it, and once was to see if it worked (it seems to work just fine and is very responsive), the other was an accident. I use a mouse for everything.

http://slickdeals.net/f/8654030-lenovo-g50-15-6-touchscreen-laptop-i3-5020u-4gb-ddr3-500gb-hdd-win-1... Same price as last time. I know. I was the OP.

No. The likelihood of seeing a backlit keyboard on a touchscreen laptop in this price range is extremely, extremely low (Correction - Windows/Mac laptops. Certain Chromebooks like the Toshiba Chromebook 2 for around $300 do have backlit keyboards).

WARNING - This thing is a really slow piece of junk. I purchased one a few months back. Headphone jack didn't work. Even still, it is so slow, you might as well be using a dial-up connection. You remember the days when you would click to download something or just try to load a video and then go do something else for a while and hope it's finished when you get back? Well, that's the deal here. It took me over 2 hours to download a 228MB file! If you want to compute like it's 1999, be my guest. Or spend another $100 or so and avoid the aggravation. Also, Lenovo is a garbage tech company. However, I have had nothing but good experiences with Adorama.

Regular CenturyLink high speed internet. Even non-internet tasks/functions take a long time so I know it's not the connection speed. It didn't even come with the correct drivers installed = poor quality control.

Correction: Mine is an Intel Celeron 3215U 1.7GHz processor. I still think Lenovo sucks, though. I would try to find this elsewhere and see what the reviews are before purchasing. If you see a bunch of people mention how slow it is, stay away.
