Lenovo G710 is the 17" HD wide screen laptop. It contains latest technology and some facilities but also some minor drawbacks that not affect your work. I will explain detail
The best advantage is clarity yes every laptop need this G710 contain 17" HD Wide screen. The speaker is highly developed with sorrounding sounds and other multimedia facilities. The multitouch touchpad is the latest technology facility that make the work simple for windows 8 and more. Accutype keypad make a comfortable typing and smooth feeling. It has fast data transfer facility with USB 3.0 speed.
Other facilities like lenovo energy saving technology that increases the time duration. The webcam offers 720p high definition. Easy connection to television. Automatic backup and more.
The main disadvantage is the position of external port that is arranged closely to USB device portion so it hard to connect with other device. Numkey does not include it another drawback. The main drawback is the automatic window update you have no choice for update you must update. Some users can't update suddenly after buy the laptop. But other vice it is best laptop.
Other users experience:
Some users complain about the external port position. In the case of software update users complains that after updating software there are minor errors. But overall not more complaints in my point of view lenovo G710 is the good laptop with some interesting facilities and technology advantage. Due to some drawbacks it slightly get down but over all worth your cost.
As nothing is perfect in this world. With few backlashes this laptop is very good for gaming purposes. If you are not interested in upgrades it is going to be a very good companion for long time. Battery itself saving service helps a lot but battery goes down after few months. You can manage to extend battery life to more than a year if taking care of it according to the instructions given on brochure.
With 8 gb of ram and good graphics compatibility games and heavy work loads do not disturb the machine and works smoothly. No system jams happen in the beginning.
You can choose between simple notebooks for text editing and web browsing or powerful devices with a Core i7 processor and a GeForce GPU. Depending on the hardware equipment, the prices of the various configurations are between 400 and 800 Euros (~$540 and ~$1080). We just reviewed a device from the predecessor-series Lenovo G700 (Pentium 2020M, HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge)) a couple of months ago. The biggest change of the G710 compared to the G700 is the replacement of the Ivy Bridge CPUs with Haswell models. Is the G710 a good notebook?
Let me tell you
One bit of advice to avoid problems: Windows 7 tries to identify the hardware and set it up after the installation process. This obviously does not work for the mentioned components since Windows 7 does not provide the necessary drivers.
sound quality of this laptop is good.it is built with integrated stereo speakers with dolby advanced audio certification.it has a display of 17.3 high definition with 1600*900 pixels.it has a 16:9 wide screen and 220 nit display.this laptop is inbuilt with a camera of 1.0 megapixel.the quality of the camera is not much good.the gpu of this system is nvidia geforce g7 720 2gb graphics. its memory can be up to ddr3 16GB 1600MHz.
In the end,
Pros: Battery, Input/Output compatibility, Warranty, Processor, Support, Durability, Memory, Bluetooth, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Build Quality, Display performance
Cons: Storage, Video card, Display resolution, Weight, Security Features, Included Software, Software compatibility
" Its very good computer "
This is a great laptop, good design and fast speed. I was very happy with it even after a year of using it. It never broke once and this laptop is extremely reliable. I love the quality of the display it's clear and the keyboard coherent. There's a webcam camera and good if you are a remote worker so you can contact with your colleagues easily. I'm quite happy with the weight and size of the laptop, it's not very heavy but a bit too big for me. I am always traveling so this laptop isn't so great that way. I never thought memory can a disadvantage for this laptop because the memory is fine, many times I leave something open and shut the laptop down and when I turn back on again, it still remembers. And about speed, I have never had any trouble so far, I can login within ten seconds and the laptop functions quite a quickly. The laptop never crash or break and I couldn't find any that's more reliable. The laptop suits everyone, because it's fast and it saves time. At least it saved a hell lot of time for me.
I personally find this laptop stylist because I love black laptops and this one is shiny as well. But I was hoping the base can be a bit thinner. But overall this laptop is the best out of all the ones I have used. I would strongly recommend this to everyone. Because there are pretty much no downside of this laptop.
Coincidentally enough, it is this laptop I am using to write this review and first off, I completely disagree with the disadvantages mentioned by others. I have never had an issue with the speed of the laptop even though I often process large data files and download several files a day.
Secondly, the memory. I find the concept of this absurd. As a design student I have countless Photoshop and Illustrator files stored on the laptop- files that take up a lot of space. And I still have over half of my memory left.
In general I find this a really good, efficient laptop which is a vital part of my life. I prefer it with Windows 10; however, this is down to the operating system rather than the laptop itself. The quality of the screen, sound, everything really is spot on and I myself only have a singular complaint.
However, this complaint may be irrelevant to the laptop and be down to Windows so I apologise if this is the case. I hate how every time I turn my laptop on I have to reset it to ENG UK as if I don't the keys get mixed and it starts typing in American.
Other than this relatively small issue I love this laptop, and when this laptop eventually gives in and a new one is required I will definitely continue using the Lenovo brand as no matter what the circumstances I have no intention of using a different brand.
The Lenovo G710 laptop has a simple sleek look, is light, has a great screen, very easy to set-up , and overall is very user-friendly. The laptop Y is stylish too: there's a shiny little finish bordering the track pad, and the keyboard buttons are arrange in a modern style to give you that eccentric look and feel when using the laptop is cheap and a bit bland-looking, but its powered by a class Intel processor, with a high-resolution screen so you can see clearly. The Battery time is great, and it has an on-screen reminder of when to plug it in for charging or to plug out the battery when full charge is reached. I would say this laptop would be perfect for someone who mainly needs it for browsing the internet, watching movies or playing games, or simply office work. The laptop feels solid, and packs a nice keyboard and a fair amount of battery life (up to 6 hours). You will obviously need Wi-Fi connection; the Laptop runs a Microsoft browser-based Windows OS, and while the operating system has come a long way your options are still limited once you're disconnected.

The Lenovo G710 is based on the cheaper end of the spectrum. It is made out of metal and weighs at a total of 1.2kg, which is not bad for a laptop; its definitely not heavy in my hands or when carrying it in a bag, so very good.
Battery Life review:
Up to 5 hours with removable 6-cell battery
Starting at 6.4 lbs (2.9 kg)
USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, HDMI-out, 2-in-1 card reader (SD/MMC), headphone/mic combo, VGA
Stereo speakers with Dolby® Advanced Audio™
For starters let me first saying about this unit is sturdy and a bit heavier than many conventional laptops, which suit for me fine because I don't lug it around as i think. My unit came with 6 gb of ram and a 1 tera bite hard drive. It load fast and even with. Mediocre 6 Mbps ISP it does not lag. The one drawback for me it was the include Macafee anti virus. It is useless as i know and I removed it ASAP and install AVG. The screen was crisp and clear and it picked up my wifi in moments. My initial reaction is to be pretty impressing even with windows 8.1 that time
G710 will not recognize it is own dead battery.
Don't depending on the battery. If you making the mistake of let it run down completely, you can not recharge it. This is a well-documented problem that Lenovo willn't own up to mention it. If this happen for you and your G710 is still under warranty, i think Tech Support may be able to help (though the help seems inconsistent). If the warranty had run out, well, tough luck. I may still trying to get someone to charge the battery externally as i know, but there's no guarantee i think that will help you. And no one Stateside seem to know how to charge this battery. I bought the G710 in Poland that time, and I may had to go back there for this service in that time.
The Lenovo G710 is powered by a Core i7-4702MQ quad-core processor from the Haswell generation. It has a nominal clock of 2.4 GHz, which can be raised up to 2.9 GHz (all four cores), 3.1 GHz (two cores) and 3.2 GHz (one core) via Turbo Boost. Its similarly clocked Ivy Bridge predecessor has the designation Core i7-3632QM.
Lenovo integrated a 5,400 rpm hard drive from Seagate with a capacity of 1 TB. CrystalDiskMark determines a read performance of 105.5 MB/s while HD Tune indicates an average transfer rate of 87.2 MB/s
Graphics are handled by the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and the Nvidia GeForce GT 720M in an Optimus configuration. The GeForce GPU is used in very demanding scenarios, especially during gaming, and both GPUs support DirectX 11.1. The GeForce GPU is a low-end mainstream chip with a nominal clock of 625 MHz, which can be raised to 938 MHz via Turbo.
Thanks to the powerful hardware you can play current titles on the G710. Most games run smoothly in HD resolution (1366x768 pixels) and medium details. Even current top games like Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts are playable with some restrictions. The GPU is the bottleneck in these cases.
Lenovo's G710 offers a very good application performance and a reasonable gaming performance. The user also gets a lot of storage. Battery runtimes are not overwhelming, but decent for such a powerful device. A significant improvement of the G710 over its predecessor G700 is the display. It is now brighter and has an excellent contrast ratio.
At the first glance, slider-style Windows 8 convertibles will remind you of smartphones with slide-out keyboards, a style rarely seen anymore. The design hypothetically combines the best aspects of a slate and a physical keyboard, solving the biggest problem of pure tablets, the awkwardness of onscreen typing.
Like other slider convertibles, the Lenovo G710 is an engineering marvel, with a carefully constructed chassis that pulls open and rotates into place, giving you a final form that's closer to an iPad sitting in a keyboard case than a traditional clamshell laptop. It's an acquired taste, but a fun deviation from the norm.
The $1,149 U925t also scores heavily over the other slider-style laptop we recently reviewed, the Sony Vaio Duo 11. That system was also well-built and inventive, but to save space, Sony ditched the touch pad for a tiny optical trackpoint -- a decision that really hobbled the system's usability in the end. I'm much happier with the touch pad on the U925t, small as it is. Even with a touch screen, it turns out that a touch pad is still a really important part of the laptop experience. That alone makes the U925t much more usable than the Sony Duo, but I also appreciated that the screen can be adjusted to (and stays at) nearly any angle, from just short of 90 degrees to 180 degrees.
Will this replace a full-size laptop for everyday productivity? Probably not; the first generation of Windows 8 hybrids and convertibles feel more like proof-of-concept machines than systems you're likely to end up using full-time. But the Lenovo is one of my favorite designs so far (even if it shows that most PC companies have simply given up on coming up with interesting names for products), alongside the Acer Aspire S7 and the Dell XPS 12. One complaint, however -- in laptop mode or in tablet mode, the display is always exposed. You'll need at least a sleeve to transport this safely, and even then, I'd be nervous about it.
Graphics are good. keyboard has a good feel about it and although has a windows that I am not use to I like this product.
The sound is absolutely appalling. This one factor and the fact that the keyboard is not back lit as many in this range, are lets down what could be a very very good buy.
I am over the moon with this laptop. In the past I have generally been in the budget laptop market, around the £300 price mark. When my last HP laptop died I decided this time around I would treat myself and try and get a laptop with performance somewhere nearer what you would expect for a mid priced desktop.
The spec of this laptop is incredible for the price, an i7 processor, 2GB seperate video card and 8GB of RAM - I would say this laptop would be fine for even the most demanding software for the next few year.
It runs Office 2013 beautifully as well as SQL Server , very impressive.
I was also very pleasantly surprised that the 2 games I have installed, Prince of Persia (2010) and Tomb Raider (2013) run perfectly with the graphic settings all the way up. In fact with a XBOX 360 controller plugged in this has pretty much replaced console gaming for me.
I swapped out the rather slow, although roomy, supplied 5400rpm 1TB drive for a 250GB SSD drive available on Amazon for around £100 and Windows boots in literally seconds.
I have installed Windows 7 rather than the supplied Windows 8 as I'm not a big fan. Win 7 drivers are available for everything except the power management so I can't get my battery to charge while Windows is running, but charges fine when shut down. Windows 8 would be fine and it may be you might be able to get the power management stuff to run under Win 7.
The laptop is quite light for a 17.3" model but you probably woudn't want to lug it around all day.
The keyboards is a joy to type on with the keys being nicely spaced and a numeric keyboard on the right (normally absent from budget laptops).
The power connection is on the left of the laptop, which I find unusual, and a bit annoying - very minor critisism admittedly. It's also quite a solid plug so make sure you're unplugged before getting up as I could see it cracking the case if you're a bit clumbsy, like me, and try and walk off with a plugged in laptop.
I am absolutely delighted with the laptop, serious bit of kit at a great price.
When i purchased this laptop one month ago and I'm pleased with it so far. I paid a little more than the current sale price but happy none the less. Love the style, quick boot up and keyboard, although the black case is a magnet for fingerprints. Have not used many of the Lenovo Apps, will update later on using those. No problems so far burning DVDs and playback has been stellar. Added Microsoft Office 2013 for documents, but have also used Lenovo PDF reader with no problems. Wi-Fi performance has been just OK, have used it in only a few locations so far. Speed and performance have been great, Windows 8.1 is Ok, could be a little less cluttered but hasn't detracted from laptop performance. May update a few months from now, but very satisfied these product is among the best of all.
It move data between the G710 and other devices quickly with USB 3.0 Super Speed; it's up to ten times faster than previous USB technologies, and it's backward-compatible. Lenovo Energy Management protects the long-term durability of the battery and uses advanced energy-saving technology to increase time spent between charges. With One Key Recovery, recovering from viruses or other technical difficulties is a snap. With 802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity and 10/100 LAN, you'll be able to stay connected to the internet most anywhere you go.
The 720p HD High-Sense webcam will help you enjoy web conferences or online video chats like you're really there. For easy connection to a television or other display with 1TB of HDD of storage, you won't have to worry about where to put all your data, videos, music or photos. Protect your important files and data, while also making access to information and file-sharing quick and convenient. Automatically back-up and synchronize data across your home, while enabling access from multiple devices. Data is encrypted on transfer for an extra level of security.
I read a particular review about this product when I was looking for a system to purchase for my little sister back in July 2014 and I acquired it. She needed it for some school and projects work plus games etc. I have to say the video card so far works very well - better than our desktop that does not have dedicated graphics card. No fuss design made for ease of maintenance or upgrades, excellent screen, extremely quick with a processor of Core i7 processor (Haswell) and a GeForce GPU in a 17.3-inch case makes it a really fast and powerful system. This system seems lighter than I expected for a 17 inch machine, its internet user friendly as it comes with WLAN and a good Ethernet adapter. Also the basic side ports come with a single USB 3.0 port, with two USB 2.0 ports as well. A single 2-in-1 SD / MMC card reader, the G710 comes with more basics like a simple 2-in-1 headphone and mic, a HDMI RJ45 VGA connector and a Hard Disk Drive with HDD storage of 1TB which is absolutely awesome as she is able to keep/ store a wide variety of files.
The system also comes with a glossy 17.3-inch display and a native resolution of 1600x900 pixels even though I was a little bit disappointed as I was looking for a higher resolution of like 1080p. I also discovered that it has an affordable and versatile notebook for common tasks. The 17.3-inch notebook helps her handles normal tasks like text editing, chatting, Skype, web browsing or video playback without any problems. She was also able to play 3D games thanks to the dedicated GeForce GPU and a good well integrated graphics card.
Overall, this machine met more than her basic needs and she was really grateful for the gift. However, this one factor and the fact that the keyboard is not back lit as many in this range, are lets down what could be a very good buy and also the Battery can last up to 5+/- hrs depending on what you are using it for and your settings makes me a little bit sad as I was hoping for more.

With a RAM capacity of 8 GB and a hard disk drive of 1 TB, I mean you can really never go wrong in purchasing this item. One of the fastest systems around. The icing on top of the cake for me is now the pricing. I mean at the price I got it and all of the functionality and features it offered, you really can not complain. As I am a prominent gamer, I played assassin creed on it for up to 3 hours straight and I did not experience any form of lagging or software crashing of the sort. Streaming HD videos is a bliss and the definition is top notch. The touch screen and multi touch gesture really got me going and very receptive. Really great product and it is definitely worth every penny spent.
