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. I've had the machine now for a month or so and am very pleased with it.
Summary: This laptop was my 2012 Xmas gift from my daughter. Although the laptop was delivered to my daughter by end of November I did not see it until the Christmas day. I was very excited. After using it for a couple of week I was having some trouble with the touchpad mouse in the laptop--it would constantly freeze. I called Lenovo service on January 16,2013 for assistance and after hearing a brief description of my problem i was put in touch with their software support team.
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. Knock wood I've never had any problems getting the hardware to work properly. For example the web cam worked flawlessly for Google chat and the optical drive burns discs without any problems.
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. I probably would have just done that, but when I pulled up boot screen I found out they lied about hard drive size. It is 320GB. I guess they were hoping they sold to a dummy. If all that was not bad enough, it has globs of super glue on screen.
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. After troubleshooting over the phone with a Lenovo rep, she concluded it needed to be returned to Lenovo. She provided me with all of the shipping information so it could be returned.
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. Actually, I thought they were a bit better than any others in the price range. However, as sometimes happens with any computer no matter the brand, one of these died in April. So it is being sent back under warranty for repair.
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. Totally frustrating, and if I sennd it back in, they'll replace it with annother defecctive keyboardd. JUNK! This shiny new computer is useless. I'm not goinng through the expesnee of senddinng this in for a fourth defeective keyboard replacement.
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.
