Lenovo's 15.6-inch Essential G570 laptop may not be beautiful, but it offers decent performance for a very affordable price, rather like former Liverpool footballer Robbie Fowler. The 15.6-inch Lenovo Essential G570's boring design could instantly send the most wired of coffee addicts to sleep, but this laptop does pack a powerful punch for a very reasonable price.

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 quality, screen resolution and build quality are pretty neat, too. Lenovo’s Z570 comes in a similar price range and as far as personal choice is concerned, has better looks with its all-metal finish. The specs are almost similar, unless you opt for a different version in the series. For that price, the Lenovo G570 is definitely a good buy.

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.
