Lenovo G70 17 : Appears good value, but a bit annoying to set up

Just what i wanted as i use it at my camera club and more people can see it.

Brilliant laptop at a great price. The lenovo g70 is a great laptop for anybody wanting something that can handle even the most simple of tasks with ease. It’s easy to set up and get going.

Appears good value, but a bit annoying to set up. I only received delivery of this lenovo g70-80 laptop (17. 9 ghz pentium processor, 8mb ram and 1tb hard disk) yesterday and wanted to share some first impressions as someone who’s only averagely technical as laptop user. I will update after a few more days if i’ve fixed/got used to the remaining niggles. This is the first time i’ve bought a lenovo product and the laptop looks good, as does the performance on the hd screen, and it seems reasonably well built. It appeared to be a bargain in the amazon lightning sale recently. However, i immediately had two large frustrations and a few more minor aesthetic ones. Firstly, the laptop wouldn’t charge beyond 60%, although i worked out that if i allowed it to drop below 50%, it’d let me charge up to 60% again, so it didn’t appear to be a hardware fault. After a good amount of googling and trying removing and reinstalling battery drivers, i found out that there is a conservation mode operating in the background that restricts battery charging to 60%. Here are the specifications for the Lenovo G70 17:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Massive display – like to watch movies or get more work done on a single screen? Welcome to 17.3″ of productivity and entertainment
  • Dolby-certified speakers – Lenovo and Dolby have joined forces to create a superior audio experience that redefines what music and multimedia should sound like on a laptop PC
  • Well connected – the G70 laptop comes packed with ports, letting you connect your PC easily to your phone, tablet, monitor and more
  • AccuType keyboard with numeric keypad and individual rounded keys for comfortable and accurate typing

Not bad but not as great as i had hoped. Not bad but not as great as i had hoped, only charging to 60% is a bit annoying, especially if we take it on holiday to watch dvds as we had planned.

Will be the perfect xmas gift.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Appears good value, but a bit annoying to set up
  • Absolutely amazing value for money. I couldn’t be happier
  • Good PC Replacement

Bought this laptop note pad to replace an ageing dell pc that i could not upgrade to win 10. The screen is a nice size and i thought the price was good for a machine with an i5 chip. The set up was easy, removed the mcafee as i prefer bullguard internet security. The machine shipped with win 10 however required a update to the latest version of win 10. Loaded office 365 went smoothly without a hitch. Overall looks like a good machine and delivers value for money.

Just what i wanted, very quick, easy to set up & reliable. Love the upgraded audio in this model.

Generally good, took a bit of time to get it set-up probably mostly down to my inadequacies rather than the laptop. It’s not breathtakingly fast but then it’s only got a pentium processor, but for a bit of surfing and doing the home accounts it up to the job. Nice big screen too, although the key board is disappointingly small for my big man hands. If you’re after something for serious gaming this isn’t for you, but if you’re after a cheap laptop for non-geeks it’s up to the job.

She prefers a big screen so this suited nicely. She’s no real fan of computers but likes. Bought this for my wife as her old lap top had a version of windows that is at its end of life. She prefers a big screen so this suited nicely. She’s no real fan of computers but likes to keep in touch and despite her aversion to the things i’ve noticed she logs in first thing every morning. Quite quick and with a good screen, my only gripe is that i keep catching control when i mean to use shift when i use it, but that, i guess, is just a matter of not being used to the keyboard on a laptop.

Great product, took a while to come to terms with latest operating system. This is a serious machine and very good value for money.

Laptop good, battery terrible. This is a nice laptop, but the battery is pathetic. It never charges above 55%, even when plugged in for 24 hours. The laptop itself is great, the display is lovely and it is fast and responsive. Sometimes dvds won’t play, which is annoying as i bought it for my daughter and she likes to watch movies on it. Overall, i can only give three stars for this review, as the poor battery and dodgy dvd player make it hard to recommend.

Absolutely amazing value for money. On christmas eve, my 4/5 year old toshiba laptop threw its toys out of its pram and became lethargic and unhelpful. I am a very impatient person and rather than sit upstairs on the desktop, i went to argos and bought an hp. I couldn’t get the single jack input to work on skipe. I returned the machine and paid more money for a toshiba. Noisy and very very slow, i returned that too. I decided to pay less money and bought this. Within a few hours of owning it i can comment as follows:1. It is so quiet, i dont know it is running. As a competent typist, the apple like keyboard is outstanding to use3. Screen resolution is excellent4. Skipe worked immediately with my plantronics headphone and mic5. The sound system is very good but in the limited time i’ve had it i don’t think i am going to be disappointed. By external speakers if you want soundthis undoubtedly a better machine than the toshiba and hp and for £309 it’s a steal.
