Lenovo Laptop

Anyone got any experience of producing with Lenovo laptops? I'm considering this one
Lenovo G570 15.6 inch Notebook (Core i5-2410M, RAM 6GB, HDD 640GB, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium) - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories Lenovo G570 15.6 inch Notebook (Core i5-2410M, RAM 6GB, HDD 640GB, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium) - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

All I'm after is a system which is capable of running ableton smoothly tbh. I'd like a Mac but its an unaffordable option at present.

Re: Lenovo Laptop

the old Lenovos are famous for their build quality ( i am writing this on a 4 year old thinkpad which
still works wonderfully reliable and i can produce with ableton without problems.)
and from the specs the laptop you suggest would be more than sufficient for your needs , IMO.

go for it

Re: Lenovo Laptop

They are consistently top of the ratings (usually only beaten by Mac) in terms of build quality, but I think their customer support is a bit shoddy. Having said that I don't actually own one, so I don't know first hand. However, when it comes time for me to upgrade I'm going with Lenovo.

Re: Lenovo Laptop

Lenovo's machines are usually very good; I've heard a lot of good things about Lenovo's customer service department and their website seems to make drivers readily available (I've had no issues getting drivers for my old T43).

The only thing I've noticed about Lenovo machines that I really don't like is that the Thinkpad line they bought from IBM took a deep hit in the solid/sturdiness department.
