Summary: I bought this to replace another Lenovo. What with tablets and all, I didn't want to plunge for the more costly device, so I got a refurbished IdeaPad B570. I had a telephone conversation with the seller and was impressed by the service and helpfulness.
Summary: I have owned the B570-1068AJU version of this laptop for over a year. I use it primarily for email, watching Netflix, and listening to MP3's. Without getting into specific hardware specs, it has plenty of power for that. I've never tried intense gaming on it.
Summary: This laptop was crap. Wouldn't boot. I had to repair windows. Then when login screen came up, it still had old user login. I do not have their password. Only way to get in would be to reinstall windows.
Summary: We purchased 2 of these laptops for our 8 and 10 year olds for Christmas in 2011. My older son rarely used it at first and for whatever reason the hard drive crashed. It literally had only about 2 or 3 hours of use on it. This occurred in April or May 2012.
Summary: I bought this laptop last December for my daughter and it has performed very well and my daughter loves it. She uses the touch pad to draw and that works well, too. The disk property shows that it's 421GB instead of 500GB.
Summary: I bought two of these, one for my son and one for may daughter, last Christmas. The price I bought them at was very good, only $330 at the time. The computer works well and is just as speedy as any other ones in the price range.
Summary: BEWARE! I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad B570 in December 2011, and I have had the keyboard replaced THREE TIMES! It still has a problem of repeating characters from a single keystroke. Push n, annd get nn.
Summary: This is a excellent laptop, comfortable keyboard, excellent screen clarity, great one-key restore button, sound is a little bit dissapointing but it is a computer not a stereo Most computers lack controls for base. Finger print access control completes a great system for security.
