The Lenovo G555 is one of two AMD-based budget laptops (G455, G555) released in March 2010. Both models support the latest ATI graphics, as well as AMD Turion and Athlon processors up to a Turion II Dual-Core. Featured also is the Windows 7 operating system, support for DirectX 10, Lenovo Energy Management 5.0 for decreased energy consumption, the OneKey Rescue System for one-touch backups, VeriFace facial recognition technology, and an ergonomic keyboard. As of February 2010, the differences between the G455 and the G555 models have yet to be revealed, although it is likely that they merely boast different screen sizes.
