The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.2GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 3MB L3 cache, 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to multitask between applications with ease
15.6" Widescreen LED-Backlit Display
The 15.6" HD widescreen display features LED backlight technology, which provide better energy efficiency and image quality than the older CCFL backlight technology. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is the ideal standard for HDTVs. The 1366 x 768 native resolution is supported by integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. You can also output video to an external display via the HDMI port
High Definition Audio
This Lenovo notebook comes with high definition audio support for an optimal listening experience. The built-in stereo speakers work well in tandem with the high definition audio support or you can plug in external speakers as well as headphones into the 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo jack for a better audio experience
Stay Connected
Use the 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet RJ-45 LAN jack if you require a reliable Internet connection. If you rather be untethered, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi support on the G500 allows you to connect to a public or private wireless network. Bluetooth 4.0 technology on the G500 lets you connect a Bluetooth-compatible device, such as a wireless mouse
USB 3.0
USB 3.0 can reach data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 so your older USB-compatible devices will still work
