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.

The Lenovo G570 M51BPUK has a nice keyboard, an appreciated Blu-ray drive and generous RAM and hard drive allocations. However, this version of the Lenovo G570 doesn’t quite enough 3D oomph to win an award. Read our full review to find out more.

Lenovo reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Intel HD Graphics 2000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The 2000  is the slower, internally GT1 called, version with 6 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon HD 6370M: Renamed old HD 5470 with 80 shader processors and DirectX11 support.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

Intel Pentium:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Pentium brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.


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.

2.6 kg:


74.22%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
