Medium processor core laptops manufactured by Lenovo have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core laptops) and found that Lenovo also has good ratings across its entire range.
Quite Big Screen Size
The average screen size of similar spec laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the G700 is 15", and the screen sizes range from 10" to 18". The Lenovo G700 has one of the bigger screen sizes (17.3 inches) amongst medium processor core laptops of this age.
Very Big Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other notebook PCs of a similar age and type to the G700 that we have assessed the total storage capacity of, the Lenovo G700's total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte is one of the biggest. Medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago have total storage capacity of between 1GB and 1.5TB.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo G700 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to it.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for more than two years.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of laptop is 133MHz.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Lenovo G700 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other portable PCs of this age and type.
Has a Front Camera
The Lenovo G700 has a front camera, as do most of the other portable PCs of a similar spec and age to the G700.
+4 More reasons for
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This laptop has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the medium processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as the G700 the hard drive capacity range from 120GB to 1.5TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 570GB. The hard drive capacity of the Lenovo G700 of 1,000 gigabyte is one of the biggest amongst laptops that were released more than two years ago.
802.11g WiFi Standard
The Lenovo G700 has a better Wi-Fi standard than most notebook PCs of this type and age. This portable PC has an 802.11g WiFi standard, whereas most portable PCs that were released around the same time as it have an 802.11n WiFi standard. The best Wi-Fi standard of all laptops of a similar spec and age to the G700 is 802.11n and the worst is 802.11a.
10 Reasons Against
Only One PCI Express Lane (max)
The Lenovo G700 is a one PCI Express lane (max) laptop. Most of the other portable PCs that were released around the same time as the G700 have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max).
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the laptops that have been available for more than two years the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 660MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The Lenovo G700 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,000 megahertz) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age.
Very Short Battery Life
The Lenovo G700 has one of the shorter battery lifes (only 5 hours) amongst laptops of this age. The shortest battery life of similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years is 2h and the longest is 4,700h.
If you want a notebook PC with a longer battery life then you might want to look at the LifeBook A544 (5.33h), or the LifeBook A544 (5.33h) both from Fujitsu.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
+7 More reasons against
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of notebook PCs of this age and type is 2MB, the biggest is 4.1GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.7GB. The Lenovo G700 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) amongst laptops of this age.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Like most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age, the Lenovo G700 does not have a touch sensitive screen.
When compared to other portable PCs of this age and spec, the weight of the Lenovo G700 of 2.9 kilograms is one of the heaviest. Across all the comparable spec portable PCs that are a similar age to the G700 the weights range from 300g to 3.8kg.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is the most frequently supported Bluetooth version on laptops of a similar spec and age to it.
The Lenovo G700 is one of the thickest comparable spec portable PCs that have been available for a similar time to the G700 (36.5 millimeters) amongst portable PCs of this age. Across all the notebook PCs of this type and age the heights range from 1.8mm to 300mm, and the average height is 28mm.
When compared to other laptops of this spec and age that we have assessed, the Lenovo G700's width of 418 millimeters is one of the widest. Across all the medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the G700 the widths range from 28mm to 430mm.
