I am excited to write an honest review about the Lenovo ThinkPad E570. It is important to me to buy or get ahold of the products that I review. That way I can give an honest indepth review by actually using the product. I needed a new laptop with enough horse power for my day to day web development. My daily work consists of a lot of blog posting, and especially video editing. Plus, I also didn’t want anything smaller than 15″ to ensure I didn’t have to squint to see what I was doing. Furthetmore I didn’t want anything bigger than 15.6″ due to how mobile I am.
First of all I was happy with the speed of the hard drive. I ordered it with a 150 GB SSD – Solid State Drive. This can make all the difference in the speed of your laptop. Especially if you do a lot of multi-tasking type of work. That places a lot of load on your hard drive. They are a little more expensive, however if you can keep the size of the SSD down and place all of your data that isn’t needed frequently in the cloud or on a external drive you can keep the cost down upon purchase.
The laptop came with 8GB of DDR4 SDRAM. Going with less than that isn’t recommend, especially if you do a lot of multi-tasking. The 8GB gives you the perfect amount of speed. Multitasking is something I do a lot. Constantly running Word Press, hitting my hosting platform, constantly having at least 20 tabs open in both IE Edge and Crome, editing videos using Adobe Premiere Pro CC, creating logos with Pixlr, Google analytics, and a continuous stream of hard Rock and Roll through Spotify! I am sure this also has to do with the Intel Dual Core i5-7200U (2.5GHz – 3.1GHz, 3M Cache) processor. I have not yet seen any slow down in speed or power!
The screen resolution on this laptop I purchased has a 15.6″ HD Screen (1366×768). This gives an excellent user experience with an especially beautiful view.
If you purchase this laptop through one of the sellers I list below you will also be provided with a 1 year built in warranty.
Lenovo ThinkPad E570 Review – Pros and Cons
– Screen resolution
– Perfect Size for work, yet still mobile
– I have a tendency to just close the laptop lid when I am done working. I don’t put the laptop to sleep or shut down. So when I open the lid and uttempt to login and start using it again it takes about 10 seconds for it to react and give me a login prompt. This isn’t a big deal and it may just be a setting I need to adjust, but it is a little onoying to me.
