Lenovo Laptop Essential G780 (21823TU) Intel Core i7 3520M (2.90 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good, solid performance.
High resolution screen.
The graphics card works with the screen well (not too much screen for the card)
NVIDIA Optimus works well to perserve battery life.
Intel HD 4000 can run Men of War Assault Squad with full graphics without a single frame drop.
High RAM.

Cons: Although RAM is stated to be 1.6GHz, it only operates at 800MHz.
GPU is underclocked on all clocks by roughly 20%, GPU memory frequency forced to 800MHz, just like RAM.
Intel TurboBoost isn't enabled, and can't be enable with stock BIOS.
BIOS has many, many options locked.
Cannot disable Hyperthreading.

Other Thoughts: Although BIOS locking and OEM underclocking is present, this laptop is still a solid performer for the (cheaper) gamer on the go. OEM underclocking and BIOS lock is an extreme disappointment for those who want to get EVERYTHING out of their laptop.
