Review Lenovo G710 59397112 Notebook


A lot of notebook for the money. Core i7 processor (Haswell) and a GeForce GPU in a 17.3-inch case suggest a powerful system. Lenovo wants around 720 Euros (~$972) for this package, but Windows is not included. Does Lenovo offer an interesting device...

Very good application performance; Powerful enough for gaming; A lot of storage; Bright and high-contrast display; Free choice of OS

Only Fast-Ethernet

The keyboard is surprisingly good for a low-priced notebook (the G710-series fits into this category).

Great Overall Laptop


This is where I will clear up a lot of things that I wasn't sure about when I bought this laptop, it may help some one else as well: + It only has one 3.5 mm audio headphone jack, but it connects the microphone too on my Gamecon 380 headset. + The...

I bought this laptop as a cheap gaming computer, and it does phenomenally! I don't play many new, graphically intensive games, but Team Fortress 2 runs at a solid 60-70 fps with high settings, Minecraft at 70-80 fps with Optifine on high settings, but...

good laptop for price


i bought this for school to do virtualization with and works great and for what I use it for. I put 16 gigs of G skill in it to help. If you need more HD space just buy an external hard drive and this laptop works great. Also windows boots and shuts...

good for price, nice laptop and a pretty screen

i could say some cons but nothing you can complain about for the price

Not portable!


It's a little heavy, not as heavy as my older Lenovo laptop which was smaller, but it's really large in size! Takes up a lot of desk space and seems impractical to actually carry around. If you just need a laptop to use in one location, this one is...

Easy setup, fast, clear graphics, good sound, great price

This thing is a MONSTER. It's HUGE. Not meant to be toted around at all
