Lenovo G570 43344JU is not a high end notebook, but good enough for most of the computing needs. Remember an iPad for which you pay more than double the price has half the performance of this notebook. So looking at Performance of this notebook with respect to an iPad, you are looking at an advantage of 4:1 for this notebook. Add to this the convenient of a Windows Operating system, and the keyboard ( if you type a lot).
