I bought this laptop not from flipkart..but still writing a review
Lenovo is new IBM so the first thing i sought was reliability.
I kept following factors in ind before buying..
1. Reliability of the brand, its a considerable investment so i'll trade off some of the performance for better reliability (you can Google reliability surveys)
2.Performance(g570 has second generation i5 with turbo boost good enough for even mid level games, and it will easily chew and spit any day to day applications)
3.Price, my budget was 30k but decided to go for it, as few years later, it will still be able to take on new applications.
4.The way it will behave(non performance factors),(I know this is not always on mind of new buyer but it is a big factor in long term, and the way your machine interacts with you in terms of its outer built quality will matter only after yo0 start using it.
Extremely comfortable key pad, it has separated keys , and makes it pleasure to type.And in case any of the key stops functioning in unlucky case, you do not need to replace the whole keypad.
Sound in good, i do not have much experience with other machines(sound), but certainly Beatles's come together, blew me away when i heard on G570.
And now the best part, it is not a furnace, it is super cool, you will jot be able to tell if the machine is working, if you go by temperature(while surfing), even mild gaming didn't bothered mercury.
Now the Cons.
Screen is not out of the world, slightly washed out.
Weight is 2.6 Kg, good for daily use, but if you plan to move it around a lot, go for something under 2.3 kgs

This is a budget laptop from Lenovo. The laptop is quite nice, overall. The laptop lid is a fingerprint magnet. The keyboard is quite good: the keys are curved inwards. The trackpad is very good. Overall, the machine has a rather solid feel to it. Plenty of USB ports. The main weaknesses would be the slightly washed out display and slower hard drive. Also, no USB 3.0. Well, what more can you ask from a budget laptop? Hope this brief review helps.
