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

Lenovo’s G570-4334 is smart, functional and has a decent turn of speed, though we had concerns about the screen – not only is it shinier than a soldier’s boot, the row of dead pixels that appeared soon after its first use was quite disconcerting. Nonetheless, you could do a lot worse for £500.

Compared to the previous generation benchmark scores are much-improved. The i5 processor and 4GB DDR3 RAM, as well as Intel’s tweaks to its onboard GPU all help the Lenovo G570′s multitasking abilities. Light gaming and movies are within the G570′s capabilities, and in general programs respond promptly and task flow jogs along nicely.

Battery life with the included 6-cell battery is about 5-5.5 hours, which is on par with other similar laptops.

The Lenovo Essential line is supposed to be a budget line, and the G570 performs that way, but the price point is too high. If you're looking for a budget-friendly machine, this version of the Lenovo Essential G570 isn't it. The Essential G570 line starts at an acceptable £300, but that's with an Intel Dual Core Processor and just 2GB of RAM. Unfortunately, even with all the fancy upgrades and the i5 processor, our review model just doesn't seem to cut it. There are some nice features, certainly, such as Bluetooth, an HDMI out port, and just over 5 hours of battery life, but performance is sub-par.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
