Summary: 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.
Excerpt: The Core i5-based G570 M51BPUK from Lenovo isn't lightweight, but this solidly built laptop has enough power to replace your desktop PC for most purposes. Its 2.5GHz Core i5-2450M CPU has plenty of power for a mobile processor and the G570 M51BPUK achieved an overall score of 59 in our benchmark tests, which means it has plenty of power to run popular applications.
Excerpt: When they first appeared, it was almost impossible to find a laptop with a Blu-ray optical drive for less than £1,000. Today, you’ll only need half that amount to buy Lenovo’s budget G570 laptop, which includes a Blu-ray reader as standard. Although the integrated graphics are capable of decoding Blu-ray video, Lenovo has included an AMD 6370M graphics card with 1GB of dedicated video memory.
