G570 - better than I expected
Date:March 22, 2012
"I purchased the G570 in late 2011 for less than $400. Initially, I thought that there was some "catch" since the unit was so inexpensive. After using the product for several months now, however, I realize that I got a great deal. I am a student at a university and I use the laptop everyday for many different tasks. The laptop is very reliable and user friendly. It is light in weight, has a great LED screen, good battery life, and runs all of my applications with good speed. I would recommend it to any student or friend."
"I bought my Lenovo G570 last week and i'm loving it. Great speakers and great audio. $399.99-GREAT PRICE. 31 second boot with EE-Enhanced Experience 2.0, 2nd Gen Intel Core i3, Windows 7 Home Premium, Inegrated Camera and Microphone. Comes with Kensington Slot, VGA, Ethernet Port, 3 USB Ports. Up to 8gb of Memory, up to Intel Core i7. 15.6 screen."
"This being my first does not make it my only experience with laptops. It is an amazing machine for the money. Extremely fast and quite reliable. Impressed with features and functions. Definitely a good choice for a starter machine with strong capabilities. 5 stars in my book...."
"I purchased the laptop 1 year ago. Although the laptop is good on performance but the laptop covers are made of poor quality plasicts..I never expected this from lenovo...The left hinge joint broke and the upper and lower covers separated which i found was a common problem with this model after reading reviews...I had to repair it for 5500 bucks....
Never going to buy any Lenovo product in futute..."
"Bought it in June 2012 and Hinges start having play after a year. Screws coming loose. The body under left hing cracked near the fan vent due to normal use (never abused). This is a common fault. Lennovo does not owe to this manufacturing defect. Never going to buy another Lenovo. Would not have even rated a single star."
"Had it for almost a year now. Runs smooth and very simple to nagivate. Not created for top-notch gaming and programing, it will unforunatly slow down. This G series is good for everday usage. Also note that its VGA and not hdmi, you'll have to purchase the converter if using it and last but not least, speaker will becoming weaker after so long. (i usually have the volume at 20%) Too much goodies program in this G570 will cause slowness to the performance if using or leaving it running in the background. Goodluck!"
"This laptop started giving me problems from day 1, red dots all over the screen , loose bezzel and screws coming out. wish i never would have bought this machine. surely my first and last lenovo product ever! STAY SAFE AND DUN BUY THIS !"
Cons: Support, Battery, Bluetooth, Included Software, Build Quality
"I bought this laptop for 280.00 dollars. I needed one with a powerful processor and graphics for my classes, I tested this laptop at the suggested website of my software and it passed with flying colors, it has now been 6 months since my purchase and my laptop performs as if it were new. The only downfall is the battery life, but I keep all my settings at the max so that may be why."
"I got this laptop last 5 months back and it is very durable laptop. I am an employee in a company and I can do my projects within a day. all the applications and features are excellent and the design is very classy finish. More over I have a pentium dual core b950 and its very fast and gigantic in performance. last I would conclude it that its very good and worth buying this laptop."
"I am 15 years old and have been using this laptop for a few months now. The LED screen works great and you can change how bright you want the screen also. The WiFi has good speed. Keyboard works fine. It has a manual WiFi ON/OFF switch witch is pretty cool and it has a SD card slot. SD card slot works great for extra memory or uploading Video or Pics from my camera. The only problem I have come across is a little ring in the Headphone input that keeps a the head phone jack from being loose came out and got lost and its harder use the head phone jack now. I'm trying to find a replacement for it. Everything else works great! I love this laptop =)"
"I purchased this Lenovo G570 for under $400 bucks! Great value for the money. Sturdy, looks good, with plenty of speed for every day use both at home and in the office. The only thing it lacks was pre-loaded software, but for the price I can over look that.
Highly recommend to everyone. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of pre-loaded software."
Light weight, but not as fast as my old IBM laptop

"I have an older Lenovo SL500 (dual core). The G570 I have is the Core i5 version. But, I do not find surprisingly better speed on G570.
One thing I noticed that G570 internet connection speed is far slow than the old SL500: when transfer from my home file server, my SL500 can deliver the internet writing speed at 50Mb/s while G570 can only deliver the speed of 13Mb/s (same file and same share folder on the server)."

"One of the most durable laptops I have ever used. I have used a variety of laptops over my 15 plus years in field sales and none were even close to the G570. Before I finally got my replacement my old one lasted me about 4 years and it still was working but just need some parts. After taking 4 years of beatings from TSA's at airports, Stewardesses throwing it in the "above compartment", a 3 and 5 year old rubbing Noxzema allover the keyboard and lastly late night "working festivals" where somehow a cigarette fell and melted some of the keys this laptop was still as good as the day I got it. Really my company could have just got me a new keyboard to replace the one I had and a DVD drive and I would have been just as happy, well okay I am much more happy with a brand new one. With these low prices I am now going to get one for a family laptop since it already has been through the ring of fire and it came out more than alive!!!"
"I recently bough one of these at Office Depot for $329. Probably a good deal - but know that the worling surface, keyboard and touch pad are all black. the touch pad does not have an on/off switch like the HP does and since it has no contrast with the surrounding surface it is very difficult to use it effectively in low light or to find the L/R mouse buttons on it. good contrast of buttons, touch pad and surrounding area would be a real plus for this laptop."
