Pros: newegg has always done me good.
Cons: read other thoughts
Overall Review: this guy claims to work in the IT field, but cannot use proper grammer. Newegg has no impact on how a computer performs, as they are simply a re-sale site. I've never had any problems with newegg.
Pros: Love the keyboard. Easy for typing. I like that it has the boot optimizer so that I can see how long it takes each time that it boots. I have been using Photoshop 10 to edit photos and this laptop has been a dream.
Cons: Frame around the monitor could be made a little more stable. Other than that, I have no complaints. It has been doing everything I expected and sometimes more.
Overall Review: I have bought several items from Newegg and have had no problems. I believe these reviews are meant for how the product works and not how Newegg handles its problems. I love my new laptop and am excited that I bought it. No regrets.
Pros: The configuration of this laptop is very good. i5 2.5GHz with 4GB of 1333 MHz RAM is sweet!
Cons: 5400 RPM drive is what slows it down. Not the CPU. Not the RAM. All components are only as fast as the slowest component, which in most cases is the hard drive...Especially at 5400 RPM! Upgrade your drive, buddy!
Pros: It works, runs its software and OS pretty well for the price
Cons: There is a serious defect with the hinges on this laptop. As another reviewer said: just google g570 hinges, and you'll see that a ton of people have this problem, my case is typical.
The problem is there's a screw on the hinge that holds up the monitor. That screw does not stay in (for some people it wiggles out of place, for others like me it stripped the threads and fell). The result is that when you open the laptop without that screw, the hinge rotates and snaps open the casing on one side. From that point on, the laptop screen will not stay open on its own without being propped, and when you shut the top it won't quite lay flat.
Overall Review: It might be alright if you plan to leave it on a tabletop and never open/close the lid. But do yourself a favor and just get a different brand.
Pros: Sandy Bridge
Cons: Weaker than popcorn flatulence. Hinge nuts on surface plate separate. Followed by the other 2 nuts, rapidly pulling out. Just google G570 hinge problems. The IBM was Iron Man...Lenovo is Girly Man. Very weak mechanical build.
Pros: it works.
Cons: i work for the IT field so i know a little about computer sense i use them all day and seen may different types.
i brought this for my sister bday at a way higher price about a year ago on new egg. and i regret ever buying it from new egg. the computer was horrible. the process speed is slower then a lot of the other computer. alway trying to do ee lenovo booster everytime it boot up. i don't think i will every buy a computer from newegg again. i have brought a lot of thing from newegg before.
it only 1 year old and the hard drive is already making clicking sound. which i worry may signal a bad hard drive coming.
this is the third laptop in my family. but far worst then the others.
if you think it a great school computer forget it. the way touchpad is over sensitive to everything make tying a nightmare. even if u touch around it the computer will react.
Overall Review: wish i brought it at local store then i can return it easier.
