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).

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
