Summary: Best computer I ever had! I like having the number-pad on the keyboard. No matter what you do to this computer, it just keeps on working. My 10 year old grandson uses it every day to play games, and even he can't hurt it!
Summary: Had this laptop for years! I absolutely loved it.. It serviced me greatly for writing papers, computer programming, watching Netflix, and playing some video games.. Sadly, I cracked the screen by hitting it.. Highly recommended laptop.. worked great for over six years till I cracked the screen..
Scrolling mouse feature wildly out of control and runs so hot that calling it a laptop seems like a episode of "Punked
11 November 2014
Summary: Piece of junk. Hinge broke nearly immediately and Lenovo makes it such a hassle to service that I just threw it away. Scrolling mouse feature wildly out of control and runs so hot that calling it a laptop seems like a episode of "Punked."
Summary: TERRIBLE TERRIBLE hinge design. The hinges are weak and will break in just a few weeks of ownership. The computer it'self is fine but the casing is the worst I have ever seen. I will never buy another Lenovo again unless they improve their casing.
Hinges keep breaking, would not recommend purchasing

Summary: Like so many others, my Lenovo's hinge broke twice while covered under warranty (which I had to pay out of pocket to send to Texas each time, and each time it took two months to get back because the "part" was out of stock).
Consumer Lenovo laptops DO NOT have Thinkpad quality
1 July 2014
Summary: I use Lenovo Thinkpads at work and those are fine machines. My mistake was to think Thinkpad quality rubbed off on other Lenovo offerings. While the G570 has decent specs, the case design is a disaster. Like many other posters here, after a few months of ownership the hinges started breaking.
Summary: I can't tell you how horrible my experience has been with this laptop. I have used laptops almost exclusively since they first came out, chose Lenovo this time because of their reputation, and this laptop is a disaster. The hard drive died 14 months after I bought it.
