screws get loose causing breaking of hinges, we need to do class-action Law suite

kj, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: G570 has to be the worst laptop ever I have ever used, my laptop and my dad are the same model, Dad one day called and told me the hinges for the LCD came out, I checked it and it was the screw was holding the hinges was not there, not only that, other screws as will. I thought maybe it happened that the assmebler who built it did not tie the scew good, that shows a bad quality from lenovo .

Get your screwdriver ready!

Terra, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: I've had this laptop for about a year and a half. While I've never been the best with computers (my macbook and my lenovo's batteries stopped charging after a few years). This laptop has beaten them both in difficulties. First off, a screw fell off out of the hinge, so now my monitor won't stay up at certain angles. Other screws began falling out randomly even after trying to tighten it some more.

mixed feelings

Jeff & or Elizabeth, Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: While this has been a great running computer, fast with ample storage etc; I am very upset that the hinges are breaking. I have had this computer for about 11 months and have been very careful with it. It has never been dropped or abused in any way. But now inexplicably the hinge is forcing the housing apart. This is inexcusable!!!

Cheap plastic ruins laptop

F Charmane, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: The first thing you notice about this laptop is the cheap feel to it. The plastic feels cheap and flimsy. For the price I didn't expect a superior material, so I was OK with the plastic at first. Less than a year into owning it one of the plastic hinges has already broken giving it an annoying wobble when I type and limiting how well I can position the screen. I rarely moved the laptop although sometimes I did place it in my backpack - although not more than once a week.

Recharge connection failed after 9 months

Scott Turner, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: Cheap, shoddy construction. Worked fine out of the box, but less than a year later and the recharge connection has broken loose from the motherboard. It would cost more to fix than it will to replace it. Wish me good luck getting warrantee service.

Another Unit with Broken Hinge

vcartujano, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: Just like so many reviews here, the left hinge on my unit got broken. The screw that held the hinge to the body from the back is nowhere to be found. I tried putting another screw from another idle laptop, but it did not hold. It looked like there is no nut where a screw can be tightened to. When I moved the laptop, I could hear a metal piece running inside the unit. That could had been the missing piece.

Screen broke after a 2 foot fall

raquis, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: I was very happy with this computer and then it fall from the coffee table while the laptop was closed and bye bye screen. Luckily I had purchased insurance for it. I bought 2 of this computers and the other one is still running great. I would have given it 4 or 5 stars but I cannot believe how delicate it is.

Casing is Poor Quality

stintage, Amazon
24 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this laptop around this time last year during a sale. It was amazing at first, since the keyboard was very easy to type on and the casing was a solid matte finish. I used it as my main computer for months since it had nice specs, barely took it out of the house twice. However, around January the side of the casing started to crack off just from regular opening and closing. I could push it back into place and it would hold fine, but it got worse.
