    Makes me wanna throw away my laptop and get this instead. Gaming specs for a low price :)

    • +4 votes

      I bought one a few months ago, and have been very happy for the price.

      Lenovo were a bit difficult to deal with, as they had oversold their supply leading to a considerable wait (4 weeks after lots of complaints, down for an original ETA of 8 weeks).

      For gaming it's good, but not great. The limited VRAM on the GTX1050 (only 2GB instead of the normal 4GB) means I need to drop the texture quality in some games. But I don't think you'd find something as capable at a similar price (and in a similar form factor).

      •  

        Yeah can't expect this to be a high end gaming rig at this price. You'd want a fancy RGB $2000ish alternative instead. Definitely an excellent laptop for autocad and other graphics.

      •  

        @kapone, In your opinion , is it bit noisy. Bcause the fan will be constantly running and do you think this machine get considerably hotter after running for even half an hour.

        •  

          I've heard noisier, but when gaming I wouldn't say it's quiet. Easily ignored though.

          Again, for this price I'm not complaining.

    I game with 1080ti , I'm looking at some portable and not gonna break the bank. Will this be able to run max settings 1920*1080?

      On most, but not all games.

      You'll probably have to drop the texture quality on some more demanding games.

      •  

        Which games have you found run good vs games not so good?

        •  

          My Steam library is all pretty old, so haven't played too many newer games.

          Prey seemed to play pretty good. Max Payne 3 has been fine. Ditto for Shadow of Mordor. Overwatch is is almost solid 60fps.

          GTA V needed the settings turned down a fair bit though, and the little bit I tried of Doom needed the same.

        •  

          @kapone: Hey :) I'm just looking for a computer for MS Office, YouTube, Skype, Google and Overwatch. How well does it run Overwatch?
          You mentioned 60fps but on which setting?

          How long can you expect to play until it overheats if at all?

          Thanks !

        • +1 vote

          @shrugies:
          It should run Overwatch at 1920x1080 60fps on epic from what I've seen.
          The game is pretty well optimized so it shouldn't suffer from the lack of VRAM like other games might.
          I'm saying this cause I built a pc running an RX 460 2gb (a fair bit slower than the 1050ti I believe) which runs it at 1920x1080 60fps but toned down a little bit (around high-ultra).

          I find with laptops as long as they're on a cooling pad then they stay relatively cool enough to not be affected by overheating. I'm only going off owning a laptop back in the day which ran a 670m.

          Hope this helps.

      Not if you want 60fps all the time.
      For that you need a 1060, and even that will occasionally drop below 60fps with max graphics settings on a few AAA titles.

      With this most AAA games would be played at high settings and during team fights/intense scenes it would still dip in fps, but not below 40, so still enough.

    • +1 vote

      notebookcheck is a good site that will do fps tests on games, have a look there. You will want a 1060 minimum.. maybe 1070.

      Thanks for all the replies. I'll hold out till something with a 1060 comes out and hopefully Its cheap as this. One can only hope

  •  

    How's the cooling on this? I havent been able to find sites that talk about it.

    • +2 votes

      Not great. Its their entry business/corporate model, no their gaming model. So you have single cooling with very minimal intake vents, as opposed to twin cooling with bulk intake vents. This is the main reason I passed on these and got something else similarly spec'd for a little more.
      FYI even a lot of the twin-cooled gaming laptops with these spec's suffer from various degrees of CPU and/or GPU temp-related throttling, so this would be terrible if you're going to regularly max it out for extended periods.

      •  

        Thx for detailed reponse <3 only thing i would ask for are some sources :)

        • +3 votes

          Check out notebookcheck.com.au
          They do comprehensive testing including CPU and GPU temps and throttling under gaming and stress testing, plus chassis temps and fan noise.
          But with this its a no brainer, the same components (45W CPU and 75W GPU) crammed into a tiny space with next to no intake ventilation and only a single radiator and cooling fan(see images on their website and tear down images on google images).

        •  

          You the real mvp <3 thx so much

      • +1 vote

        What's your source on this Viper8? I can't find anything on the 570p on Notebook Check, they only cover the standard 570 which has very different cooling capabilities.

        I have a 570p right in front of me and it has reasonable sized vents on both the left and right hand sides (there is no optical drive, this space is mostly ventilation). You can look on the website linked in the deal and see both sides of the laptop have vents. I'm assuming it is dual fans given air is being pushed out of both vents, and a large portion of the underside is vented and dust filtered for intake to the fans.

        I have the laptop on my desk, not on a cooling pad or anything like that just sitting flat on the desk, I am running Unigine Heaven benchmark on ultra settings at 1080p and after over half an hour the GPU has maxed out at 74c with the laptop in high performance mode. This should be under the thermal throttling point. As a side note noise levels are very tolerable too, the fans sound quite smooth and ramp up and down fairly smoothly too. Granted it's not the hottest it could be inside right now (around 22c), but unless you like to game outside in the middle of summer it will be fine :)

        I'd recommend cleaning the filtered vents on the bottom and sides at least every 6-12 months to ensure dust does not begin to affect the cooling performance. You can do that with an anti-static brush or carefully with a can of compressed air.

    Great price for the spec, as other mentioned I do worries about the cooling on this model. Looking at Whirlpool post on the E570p, Lenovo is a bit hit and miss on this model and on the after sales. Lot of buyer got the Chinese version (Lenovo S5).

    •  

      E570p is actually the exact same model as lenovo S5. Everyone who bought it will have it labelled as S5 on the notebook

    Gpu performance is too low for my liking. Just hits 60 at 1080p maybe on medium settings and can only go more downhill from there.

    Thanks TA. Good price for the specs, but personally waiting for a E570 (non-p) deal for a friend.

    Hope the next deal will be on E570 =D (lenovo should still try to pump out E570 deals right? to clear inventory and make room for E580 right? ;D)

  •  

    That's great value

  •  

    I wanted to call to find out, but the lines are closed: is there a typo on the Lenovo webiste? It seems like there are only 4GB NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti, but there are 2GB NVIDIA GTX 1050. Any anyone confirm which graphics card comes in the laptop?

    -edit-
    After a chat with a sales consultant, I've been told "It is a new graphic card launched by NVIDIA.
    It comes with 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphic card."

  •  

    I dunno about this laptop specifically, but I know there definitely are 2GB and 4GB versions of both the non-Ti and Ti cards in laptops (mobile), though the 4GB non-Ti variant is extremely rare.
    For desktops the 1050 only comes with 2GB, and the 1050 Ti only comes with 4GB.

  •  

    I scoped out this laptop last week, and the price was $1150 with the voucher "DEAL" at approx $1250 RRP. Can anyone confirm/deny? Not too sure how to track down old versions of the same web page.

  •  

    I was gonna get this one, decided to go for the Dell 7567 for same money…. Came with an i5but 4gb ti card, and a beefy cooling system. I'm not jealous of this,lenovos reviews seem pretty gank. I've not used them side to side though, so I can't say if the 2gb extra is worth it. Internet says yes for gaming, i7 not a major hurdle for gaming. Ymmv.

    •  

      I went the same boat !

        What do you guys think of the screen? I've read bad stuff but I've never seen it irl

          @shrugies: Good buy!

          Mine I received has the TN Panel, I honestly don't have any issues with this screen..

          I Paid $1350 and received

          Core I7 7700 HQ
          16GB DDR4 Ram
          256gb SSD + 1TB HDD

          Same video card as yours, this thing is a great laptop ! very pleased

          If TN Panel bugs you that much IPS Panels can be had for <$120 and install yourself..

  •  

    Is a dell 15 7000 with 4GB 1050ti and 256GB ssd and 1TB hd and 16GB ram a better option?

    $1119.

    Refurb only though.

    •  

      Depends how you feel about refurbished goods haha I've heard that the 4GB vs 2GB won't make that much of a difference. Both are good setups and prices. I was considering this too. On paper, totally, the Dell is more bang for your buck. It's cheaper, better spec'd and has 1 yr warranty. So if you buy it, you'll perceive it as the right choice because you saved money and the refurb means it's in full working order. On the other hand, if you pick Lenovo, you'll justify the extra cost to have a brand new product and know it's history.

      In the end, $80 is like, two dinners out in the city or something . You'll justify it either way :D

    •  

      Hey boxall, I just confirmed with Dell that the one you're looking at doesn't specify IPS display, so I assume it's the atrocious TN panel. I've just purchased the i5 version for $929, one left I think. The Lenovo i7 has similar specs except for i7. I thought i'd save $270 and get the i5 just for gaming. The i7 would have been good for video editing, but I'll save a few hundred bucks. If I'm not happy with the refurb, I have 15 days to claim a free refund and return from date of delivery.

      •  

        I5 one has less memory, no extra hdd. But much better screen. Tough decisions.

        Oh and the i5 one is red. Pass.

        •  

          i5 still good for gaming, not much difference compared to i7. Hdd can be bought on sale and installed. Screen CAN be changed on the i7 model, they have instructions on the net if you're bothered. But Google the difference between TN and IPS, there are a couple on YouTube. HUGE difference. I just couldn't settle for a bad screen

        •  

          @shrugies:

          Being red is my concern.

          I7 tn screen with 16GB and extra 1TB hd is 1119
          I5 ips screen with 8gb is 929

          190 difference. Tough decision.

    •  

      IIRC the Dell has a massive battery compared to the Lenovo, making it actually usable as a portable workstation despite the heft. Something to keep in mind if you travel.

    Does it have dp out or HDMI 2.0 ?

    Having purchased one of these in the past I'll give my review!

    I got a model the same as this one but with a different spec - i5-7300HQ, 16GB RAM, and 128GB SSD instead. The difference in CPU performance between the i5 and i7 is not huge for most tasks (within ~10% in single threaded loads and 30% in multithreaded) but you can safely assume this i7 model will be even better than the one I'm talking about. The extra RAM was very affordable to add from the factory, and the SSD should be of the same variety (SanDisk X400).

    Shipping did take quite a long time, I think I waited around 6 weeks from ordering to receiving it. But when it arrived it did so without any damage or marks to the box which is always nice!

    Straight out of the box I was impressed by the silver outer shell, it won't pick up and show fingerprints easily and IMO the silver colour looks great. On the inner shell you have the standard Lenovo matte black with a fairly standard Lenovo layout, it even includes the nipple! The trackpad is a very useable size with two sets of left/right click buttons (one for use with the nipple). The keyboard is comfortable and easy to type on and the backlighting is very nice to have in the dark. It's not the best backlighting, in that it seeps out around the edges of the keys and isn't super bright when looking at the lettering from certain angles. There is also no brightness control and the lighting settings don't stick on reboots but if anything that will save battery life as you could forget it's on in daylight. It's plenty good enough for most low or no light situations, and the ability to swap between white and red is nice not only for aesthetics but for the fact you can use it as a sort of ghetto brightness control - white being a little brighter than red.

    The included 135W charger isn't huge but is a bit bigger than chargers of similar priced laptops - this is due to the this bad boy running a GTX 1050 Ti, and it should provide enough juice for maximum gaming loads without the battery draining on you.

    Speaking of gaming loads this thing is an absolute champ for the money. It's got a true quad core CPU, not some dual core with hyperthreading. Plenty of CPU grunt so as not to bottleneck the GPU. The GPU itself is indeed a GTX 1050 Ti 2GB, a rare card to see given most 1050 Ti's seem to have 4GB VRAM, even on mobile. This is a great entry level gaming chip for 1080p and should have no problems running mostly high settings on modern games, although I'd stay away from ultra settings as at that point you only get very small improvements in quality for sometimes big performance hits. The 2GB VRAM is a bit of a limiting factor in certain games, you may have to run texture quality and similar settings down a little bit in order to fit it all in that 2GB, even at just 1080p. You certainly wouldn't want to hook this up to a 4K monitor and expect it to play games well, you will very quickly run out of VRAM and regardless the GPU isn't powerful enough for 4K gaming even if you had a 4GB model. However it will handle all manner of 4K video playback very smoothly.

    Multitasking is also pleasant on this, it's got a good quad core CPU, the ability to spec it with up to 32GB RAM, and a reasonably high performing SSD. Launching a dozen smaller applications at once is not a problem, as is running them all in the background. Love Chrome tabs? So long as you spec it out with enough RAM for your uses you can go nuts. Boot times are speedy, coming in at under 10 seconds to the desktop from a cold boot.

    The screen is a little cheapish, the resolution is nice but there is some backlight bleed and colour accuracy is probably way off for anyone wanting to do graphic design. It's fairly responsive during gaming though, considering it's 60hz and I usually game at 144hz it seemed OK.

    All in all a fantastic price for a well specced laptop if you are using it for the usual home/work use and want some grunt for gaming on the go as well. This would be great for a uni student or someone that takes their laptop to/from work and doesn't mind the 15.6" size. Work hard during the day with the capability of some gaming at night (or during your breaks!). Certainly great for someone like that with a tight budget who wants one computer to do it all, but also great for anyone that wants to complement their existing fast desktop with something fairly capable yet portable.

    PS: Protip, if you want this to last you or you need it right now then speccing it to 16GB RAM for an extra $105 is very good value. Even if you added an extra 8GB RAM yourself it will cost you about that to do it but Lenovo will ensure you get the most compatible stick which will run at the right speeds/timings and in dual channel with the existing 8GB.

    •  

      So, to confirm, I don't need to pay extra for the charger?

      • +1 vote

        The 135W charger is included in the box with the laptop and despite this being sent straight out of China mine came with a single power cable using the standard Australian wall socket connector.

    •  

      I'll also note I have not tested battery life yet at all, so can't comment on that. I will however add the built in speakers are very good for their tiny size, they produce some of the best audio I've heard come out of a sub $1200 laptop and will get plenty loud enough for most normal movie/music/game usage while sitting next to the laptop without any distorting or cracking.

  •  

    Anyone know whether the battery is removable or not?

    •  

      The battery is easily accessible through the upgrade flap underneath without voiding warranty :) Just remove a few screws, pop the flap off and you have access to the RAM slot, M.2 slot, 2.5" SATA drive bay and the main battery!

  •  

    So I'm thinking of pulling the trigger and buying this version with the RAM upgraded to 16GB. This model with 16GB RAM and 3 year warranty comes to $1,413 after the 6% cash rewards discount.

    Can anyone chime in whether it's worth it to get the extended warranty or not?

    •  

      I went with the two year warranty, but not the RAM upgrade, as I'm not a gamer.

      I think two years warranty is enough to cover dodgy components and ~$90 for on-site NBD is excellent value(I wouldn't have paid that if it wasn't on-site NBD). The third year more than doubles the warranty price. Also, the chances of me replacing this PC within three years are very high, so the extra year would probably be a waste.

      I'm begining to regret not going for the RAM upgrade. Does anyone know if I can do the upgrade after I've placed the order?

  •  

    How could i get one of this without getting attention from my wife/CFO?

  •  

    Alright, I bit the bullet on this one. Hopefully they send it to me within the month.
