Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Sophisticated and understated styling allied to excellent build quality gives an impression of durability and reliability. The unit is in a very dark brown with a brushed metal effect, which makes a refreshing change from black. The keyboard is perhaps a little on the small side – this being a 17.3" laptop, the keyboard doesn't stretch across the full width of the machine but sits in a shallow recess; the keys themselves are slightly smaller than those on a full size keyboard. Typing is a joy, and the island style keys are responsive to use. Similarly the touchpad is well engineered and easy to use, with only occasional oddities in cursor movement, which could probably be corrected by adjusting the trackpad settings. The unit is very quiet in operation and does not seem to get very hot. I can't say anything about the battery as I didn't use it.
Bad points:
The screen, the screen, the screen! Viewing angles are average, brightness levels and screen resolution are good, but the screen has a marked blue cast which colours everything. This blue cast proved impossible to completely eradicate whilst maintaining a good colour balance. This German reviewer (http://www.notebookjournal.de/tests/laptop-review-lenovo-g770-m5335ge-nkmw-1478) found the same problem with his review sample. I like to look at a lot of art websites, and there's nothing worse than knowing that the paintings you are looking at are not being reproduced in anything like their original colours. The same goes for movies, photos . . . anything on the G770's screen is tinted blue, meaning that colours appear washed out and cold.

If you are interested in colour fidelity, give this laptop a miss. However, if you're not concerned with colour fidelity, this laptop is a smooth, powerful multimedia machine that could be very enjoyable.
