Performance and Benchmarks
The synthetic benchmark scores have improved a great deal due to the higher-end specifications equipped with this notebook when compared to the previous generation. Our G570 review unit has a second-generation Intel Core i5-2410M dual-core processor, Intel HD 3000 graphics, 4GB DDR3 dual-channel of system memory at 1333MHz, and a 500GB capacity WD hard drive at 5400rpm. These specifications will most definitely be able to handle multitasking and productivity, watching movies, and even light gaming (although the graphics card won’t be able to handle games like Mass Effect 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 very well). Programs are responsive and the flow of tasks can be run decently fast. The piece of hardware that will bog this system down is the hard drive with a spindle speed of 5400rpm. This will effect boot-up time, transfer speeds, and even application loading speeds. There is not currently a faster (7200rpm) hard drive option. Check out our comparison charts below where we have compared similar-classed notebooks for a better idea of how well this system performs, and its value.

    The fatal flaw in the G750 is the hinge, which failed in my laptop after less than 1 year of light use (and no travel) due to very poor design and plastic parts. I discovered that it would cost $90-100 to repair this at local computer stores. I have researched this problem online, and find many posts complaining of failed hinges. Also, these posts report a complete lack of response from Lenovo in repairing this, even for laptops still under warranty. It is amazing that Lenovo doesn’t care enough about there customers or reputation to repair the hinge and fix the problem! You should include this in your review!
