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.
Hinges have broken on two separate occasions - Horribly made laptop!
11 October 2014
Summary: It's an older laptop, so you're probably not going to be buying one of these new, but I wanted to confirm some of the other reviews that indicated that the laptop case design is horrible. The hinges break, which pops out the screws, which loosens the entire hinge mechanism, and cracks and breaks the plastic case. I went through Lenovo Customer Service about 6 months back and demanded they fix it outside of warranty.
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). I even decided to extend warranty another year just to cover the hinge because I knew it would break!
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. Turn the laptop sideways and little bits of plastic and metal fall out.
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. Well, that happens, but the authorized repair place had to wait weeks for a replacement to be sent from China.
Summary: Its really slow. I can't open more than one tab at a time or else the page with never load. This computer also doesn't like me using Facebook for some reason. Sometimes it just won't open it at all. When this happens, I have to uninstall Google Chrome and re download it all over again.
Summary: God quality laptop features wise except for a very poor quality casing. After about a few months only, the side of the casing will start to crack off just from regular opening and closing. Guaranteed to get worse until the entire left side will start to crack off, leaving the screen to not stand upright or close correctly.
Summary: I never used Levono laptop before. I tried for the first time due to its relatively light weight. This model has Hinge issues/. One day the screw fell down and hinge is out of its slot. I would not recommend this laptop to anyone. I suggest you to stay away from this laptop.
