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.
