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, The very good application performance and the high-contrast display

Only Fast-Ethernet, A Gigabit-Ethernet port. We also miss an option for a matte display. The latter would be a nice addition to the G710, especially for the home office

Good laptop

 

First thing you'll want to do is boot from USB and do a clean install of Windows 8 or whatever OS you want. Just download the drivers you need, or access them on the second drive of the laptop which includes all the drivers. Also get a mouse because...

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...

The F1, F2, F3 and so on keys can only be used when function is held down, which is annoying for gaming. I haven't had a new laptop since about 2010, so I'm not sure if this is standard or not ; A lot of bloatware ; Probably the biggest, you HAVE to...

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...

Lenovo IdeaPad G710

 

I love lenovo

but this laptop isn't very good, has slow network card and wifi. HDD is slow, should have put in SSD. Keyboard is annoying due to the numeric pad being too close to other keys
