Summary: Honestly the worst laptop I have ever had. The Intel core i3 is mediocre but the RAM oh god the RAM, It says it has 4 Gb of RAM then you run Skype and all of it is used up.... had to buy another RAM card. The hard drive died after a year so I had to spend $70 to fix it.
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
S Padilla, Amazon

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.
Summary: The hinges were a failure waiting to happen from the laptop was built. I realized one side of the laptop was lifting. Realized the screw on the left side mounting had fallen out of the base. A couple months later the right side did the same thing.
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.
Summary: Even with IBM babysitting these foreign manufacturers they can't get it right. I looked high-and-low for a new computer WITHOUT Windows 8 before I settled on this model with Windows 7!!!. And I do mean 'settled'.
