The Lenovo G585 offers fantastic value for money for basic computing needs at home or at college. With it's simplistic design it does look quite charming and more expensive than it looks. Some of the plus points are the pre installed Windows 8 and the 2 USB 3.00 ports that both offer very good performance. For basic computer needs like word processing and general emailing,facebook and youtube the G585 does its job well, if you are looking to do some heavy gaming, photo or movie editing the Lenovo G585 is not for you, the processing power isn't simply there.
A good thing i noticed about the Lenovo was how quiet it runs its almost silent in use and would some of more expensive laptops to shame in this price range.
Overall the Lenovo is great value laptop for people looking for maybe a second no nonsense PC at home to teach their children about basic computing or just to do their homework on. This will be perfect for your needs and with some nice features $380 price tag is well justified.
