It’s always easy to pick fault with budget laptops, and although the IdeaPad G570 lacks some of the niceties of other models here, it has it where it counts. For a very tempting price it packs Core i3 performance into an unusually refined laptop.

We believe the Lenovo G570 would make a good general use notebook to have around the house if you are in need of a lower-priced notebook. The combination of its performance, keyboard and touchpad, solid build quality of its chassis and battery life cover all the grounds to make it a decent system. The complaints we did have about the display and slower hard disk drive will not be big enough deterrents for people if they simply want to own a decently solid secondary or budget-priced notebook. There is also an extensive amount of ports for an entry-level notebook, including more than enough USB 2.0 ports, e-SATA, VGA, HDMI, and a media card reader. The G570 is available now through Lenovo and select retailers, starting at the Web price of $449.

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 smudge-prone lid is a turn-off, and you don't get USB 3.0. For about the same price, the HP Pavilion dv6t offers a more stylish metal design, discrete graphics, and Beats audio to boot. The Lenovo G570 is worth a look, but you can do better.

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. 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 isn’t all about work-focused laptops as it proves with the Lenovo IdeaPad G570, an excellent all-rounder for a very competitive price. The performance is strong in all areas and we were especially impressed by the stylish finish and sturdy build quality.
