This review is from: Lenovo G570 15.6 inch Notebook (Core i5-2410M, RAM 6GB, HDD 750GB, Blu-ray BT, Windows 7 Home Premium) - Black (Personal Computers)
Well after my laptop died on me just weeks before exams I needed a replacement. I was slightly apprehensive about ordering this laptop as there were no reviews on here for it and I'm not familiar with Lenovo as a brand, but the specs seemed great for this price.
The i5 processor is great and the laptops performed very fast for everything I've tried to do so far and with 6GB of RAM it's great for multi-tasking which is important for me. The 750GB hard drive is amazing for this price range and its really nice to finally have a laptop that has enough space for all my stuff and the Blu-ray drive is a great plus aswell.
I'm not sure how good this would be for gaming (im not a PC gamer) as I don't think the dedicated graphics card is meant for gaming, however I did install the Sims 3 and it ran very well on high settings, really smoothly I was very impressed, although I would be hesitant if you wanted to play more demanding games on it.
Overall if you're not a gamer I couldn't recommend this laptop more its performed flawless for everything I've done so far (browsing, university work, video editing & converting, watching hi-def films.)
Another positive worth noting is that the keyboard on this laptop is fantastic, really nice to use and feels great. The whole laptop I think looks very nice, its smaller than the previous 15" laptop I had and although it doesnt stand out or make you think wow when you see it, it does look like a nice smart laptop.
Only negative I've noticed so far is that the mousepad isn't the greatest, it's not bad enough for me to complain about it but worth noting.
Highly recommended and glad I purchased - 5 stars.

Is the Blu-Ray a reader or read/write?

It should be a Blu-Ray HD Play back + DVD-RW & CD-RW. A blu-ray read/write at this price is a bit of a stretch

Sounds great, just a few questions though as I'm also considering buying this:
1. the touchpad of the previous version was horrible and pretty much useless, how does this one feel?
2. how's the screen, particularly how reflective is it, can you see something on it with lights on etc...

1. The touchpad is probably the worst part of the laptop, but its nothing I would complain about or would stop me recommending the machine. From what I've ready it's nowhere near as bad as the previous model.
2. Pretty standard for a glossy screen, doesnt stand out as being better or worse than my previous laptops, sometimes you get abit of glare if the you catch the light at a bad angle but u can normally just change the screen position abit and fix this. Definitely not something to worry about

Hi - I'm looking to use it for the same kind of university work. What is the battery life like?
