Lenovo Essential G570 review:

 

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

 

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...

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.

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

 

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
