Lenovo Ideapad G570

 

As far as utility notebooks are concerned, Lenovo has been one of the frontrunners. Whilst they do not have the style and looks that Apple's Macbooks provide, they do offer streamlined performan

The Lenovo G570 is priced at Rs. 32,590, excluding taxes. Like most Lenovo laptops, the G570 does well what it’s supposed to do. The laptop lacks a USB 3.0 port, but it more than makes up with its features and performance. Essentials like the track pad...

Lenovo Essential G570

 

Lenovo offers two versions of its Essential line of lower-priced laptops. The B series is described as "budget laptops for working at home or at the office," while the G series is pitched as "everyday laptops at a great price." What that means in...

The Lenovo Essential G570 costs less than many of its competitors with similar components, yet displays just enough of Lenovo's famed design quality to not feel cheap.

This is still a plastic laptop, and you can get a higher-quality IdeaPad for just a little more. Configuration options are limited.

The Lenovo Essential G570 is a surprisingly good deal for a 15-inch Core i5 laptop, but offers few frills.

Lenovo G570 Review

 

Part of the Lenovo G-Series line, the Lenovo G570 is a budget-priced 15.6-inch notebook That offers performance and a solid build quality to make it a very decent low-cost entry-level system for consumer applications.

Good performance ; Great keyboard ; Very decent audio ; Solid chassis build quality ; Good battery life

Washed out display ; Slower hard disk drive

Lenovo G570

 

A fast boot time and one of the best keyboards in its class make the Lenovo G570 worth a look.

The Lenovo G570 offers a solid computing experience, but it's not our favorite 15-inch laptop. For $749, you get a comfy typing experience, strong overall performance, and one of the fastest boot times we've seen on a Windows machine. However, the...

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Lenovo G570

 

When you think of Lenovo and its iconic ThinkPad laptop line, a huddle of "B" words likely come to mind: "boring," "black," "business," and "big bucks." But not every laptop from Lenovo has these attributes. The maker of the venerable ThinkPad has two...

Speedy for price ; Firm keyboard deck ; Speakers sound surprisingly rich ; Decent battery life ; Peppy touch pad

No USB 3.0 ports ; Glossy screen prone to glare, especially at off angles

Strong performance, sturdy design, and big audio: The 15.6-inch G570 is a smart choice in a home laptop for those on a budget.

Great office performance ; Generous HDD ; Blu-ray drive ; Decent graphics performance ; Build quality

Lenovo G570 M51BPUK review

 

The Radeon HD 6370M graphics chip may sound good, but it could manage only 22fps in our Fear test. It's underpowered by today's standards, although is capable for casual games.

While we like the keyboard and appreciate the Blu-ray drive and generous RAM and hard drive allocations, this version of the Lenovo G570 doesn’t quite enough 3D oomph to win an award.

Lenovo G570 M51BPUK review

 

The Core i5-based G570 M51BPUK from Lenovo isn't lightweight, but this solidly built laptop has enough power to replace your desktop PC for most purposes. Its 2.5GHz Core i5-2450M CPU has plenty of power for a mobile processor and the G570 M51BPUK...

A Blu-ray drive and tons of RAM makes this £500 laptop a good buy, but there are better deals if you don’t need to play HD movies

Lenovo G570 M51BHUK review

 

Lenovo's G570 range of laptops spans a variety of specifications. We've also reviewed the Core i5-based G570 M51BPUK. The entire range shares the same well-built chassis that has a dark brushed-metal wrist rest on the inside and a metallic brown-black...

Lenovo G570 review

 

When they first appeared, it was almost impossible to find a laptop with a Blu-ray optical drive for less than £1,000. Today, you'll only need half that amount to buy Lenovo's budget G570 laptop, which includes a Blu-ray reader as standard.

A £500 laptop with Blu-ray might look like a bargain, but there are better all-rounders available for the same price
