post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i am planing to buy a lenovo laptop

Processor Intel® Core™ i5-2410M Dual Core (2.3GHz)

Screen 17.3" (Lenovo, LED Backlit, 1600 x 900 Resolution)

Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit

RAM 8GB (DDR3 1333MHZ)

Hard Drive 750GB

Optical Drive DVD Rewriter

Graphics (AMD Radeon HD 6650M with 2GB Dedicated DDR RAM)

Battery Life 5-6 Hours

Cost is around 630pound...do you think it is a good idea to get this one and how good is the reputation of LENOVO..like the customer care...and overall performance and durability...basically how good is lenovo...some reviews say that it is really good bcz it purchased IBM....and all that...can it be trusted with this price ??.. ....

here is an image that shows lenovos failure rate ....



Also I was thinking about getting ACER aspiron 5750g...but again the reviews..laughingsmiley.gif..... for acer...kinda dissapointing.....

so its between Lenovo and Acer...ANY SUGGESTIONS...confusedsmiley.png

3 year trailing data isn't indicative of future quality. Anyways I'd go with Lenovo over Acer, but if it's not an Ideapad, or a B-series (or Thinkpad, but I know they don't make 17" Thinkpads anymore), then it's nothing special. Not that Lenovo's G-series is bad, it's just their budget line.

Anyways, Lenovo is the fastest growing computer manufacturer for good reason. Always a safe choice if the specs and pricing meet your needs.

Lenovo or ASUS for laptops.
post #6 of 8
^Not trying to start anything or go too far off-topic, but that's not really a fair statement. I have a Portege (sig rig #1) and it's ridiculous, like 7.5 hours battery at 30% brightness, standard-voltage i3 and it weighs about the same as an Ultrabook, like 3.2 pounds. Can't go much better in build than magnesium (well, perhaps carbon-fiber - both of which are in Thinkpads). I've been using Thinkpads (from Core 2, to i5) exclusively, except for netbooks for the past ~4 years until I got this. My point being, pretty much any brand has good models, (even HP, Acer's TimelineX, Dell z-series/XPS, etc.). And every brand has less amazing models, like Lenovo G-series and Asus X44/X54.

right now with the specs acer 5750g is costlier...by about 20 pound...however it offers blu-ray...nvidia GT540m...which is better than the AMD 6650M in lenovo...though the AMD one has 2gb ram and nvidia has only 1gb...Both dont offer bluetooth

some ppl experiencing blue screen of death and other flaws(crashes a lot) with nvidia geforce 540m...

but the compromise is that acer has a 15.6 in( 1366x768 ) screen and lenovo has a hugggge.....17.3in ( 1600 x 900) ...both HD however...everthin else is same.
Is the difference in screen size ...like noticeable( i mean significant)...or is it just marginal...like when you play games and watch movies...

so basically for additional 30 bucks you get blu ray ,..1gb nvidia gt540m and 15.3in screen...loaded inside acer 5750g...rolleyes.gif


question remains...ACER aspiron 5750g vs Lenovo g770...
