Review Lenovo G770 M533AGE Notebook


Fast boot times. The 17.3 inch G770 Lenovo notebook is equipped w

Faster booting with EE Boot Optimizer; Facial recognition with VeriFace; Attractive appearance; Included accessories from Cyberport: RAM module + notebook bag

Heavy weight; Low contrast and viewing angles; Reflective display; Partially wobbly case; Dust prone surfaces; Only Fast Ethernet port

The additional software that Lenovo includes with the G770 notebook (EE Boot Optimizer, VeriFace), should be included with all notebooks as standard.

A powerful future-proof laptop that will handle anything

Good performance ; Decent battery life ; Dedicated graphics ; 6GB of RAM and 640 GB HDD

Screen could be better ; Portability

Consumer review by:

Wonderful deal for a high quality spec machine.


Despite the speakers, I use external speakers plugged in and the quality ends up being very very good, the keyboard is a big selling feature and I can't believe the power of this beautiful laptop for the incredible price. 100% satisfied.

Great keyboard, i5 processor, great screen quality, overall, nothing out there right now can even compare to what you get for the price

speakers kinda suck

Great product, But a few REALLY ANNOYING design issues


I would actually recommend this laptop to those who want a system they can use for gaming and watching movies expecially on bluray. My cons are minimal and just things that personally annoy me.

I bought this laptop because I loved the dedicated graphics player as well as the bluray player. I use my computer mostly for playing video games and watching bluray movies and the computer has definitely been all I wanted in these aspects and more....

My cons are very small but very annoying. First, everytime i turn of my computer but keep the power cord plugged in I hear this obnoxious high pitched buzzing comming from the AC to DC converter on the power cord that will not stop until I unplug it....

Very nice


A few people made comments about the video card. For me its a non-issue. The graphics are great. If you're running a game thats a serious resource hog than you may want to do a little research. Personally I think its a great machine and well worth the...

Nice display, plenty of power, fast and the Win7 is great. Super fast boot-up, plenty of RAM, and runs really quite and COOL. The only thing missing for us is a slot for Compact Flash cards but it reads all the others (and I knew that when I bought...

Some bloatware but not enough to be a nuisance. Easy enough to remove

Consumer review by:

Good Value


Screen size, performance, construction. Better image quality than a lot of desktop monitors

No low battery warning. The Lenovo power manager overrides the Windows manager and puts it to sleep when the battery is low instead of giving you a visual or verbal warning

Great large-screen laptop


Note: I got my G770 with slightly higher specs: Intel i5 2430M processor, 6GB DDR 1333 RAM, and a 750GB HDD. I'm dual-booting a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium and Ubuntu 11.10 on it. It meets all my needs for a laptop for internet, music, and...

Enormous screen, impressive battery life (~5 hours when I'm not doing anything intensive, same as my old laptop with a much bigger battery), keys feel nice and aren't squished together, full numeric keypad, boots up incredibly quickly, looks cool and...

It's pretty big and heavy (this is an acceptable trade-off for the screen size), the left mouse button on the trackpad has a little more "give" than the right one, but it works fine

Consumer review by:

Great Value


This laptop can't compete with the performance of $1,000+ 'Desktop Replacement' or 'Gaming' laptops, but for just over half the price it shouldn't be expected to.

All expected 17"-class features: Full keyboard w/10-key, etc ; Good fit and finish ; Solid feel ; Reasonable weight for its size ; Minimal bloatware, which can be removed easily ; Powerful enough for all routine productivity tasks and light/casual gaming

None, for the price

Technological Advancements


I personally am going for a Bachelors Degree at the moment and live on campus at my school. This computer easily fulfills and exceeds all of my needs. you may have some initial trouble finding a case if u don't order one off Newegg (17.3 in. is...

GENERAL: First off let me state that this computer is Wonderful. I have gotten more bang for my buck out of this thing than I have with any other computer. I had a tough time deciding between it and another highly rated computer on Newegg but I feel...

I don't know if I would call anything in particular about this computer a con. It had virtually no bloatware, so that will be no real issue. If I had to come up with a few things I would say that the G770 could use a cooling pad. It can get a bit...
