Lenovo G560-0679AKU

 

The Lenovo G560-0679AKU gives you an Intel Core i3-370M dual-core processor, 500GB hard drive, and a variety of ports, all for a wallet-friendly price of $599.

Dual-core processor. Widescreen 720p screen. 500GB hard drive.

Relocated Ctrl key was irritating. Hefty amount of bloatware.

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 Notebook

 

Gaming revamped. Lenovo is well known for robust ThinkPads and low-priced office laptops. But a gamer with ATI HD 5730, Core i7-720QM, 7200 rpm hard disk and JBL loudspeakers?! The aggressive price of the Y-model: 860 Euro.

Strong performance, Fast 7,200 rpm HDD, Good gaming performance, Good sound with bass, Pleasant keys, Quiet mouse keys, A keyboard and mouse keys with strong feedback, which don't produce an annoying, cheap clicking noise

Weak battery life, High load- & idle-energy consumption, High temperatures & system noise under load, Low-contrast, dark display, High-gloss surfaces everywhere, Bendable chassis, More stability for the base unit and matte surfaces

Lenovo IdeaPad Y560

 

Excellent speakersGreat CPU/GPU combinationDecent expandability.

Pointless slide bar is more confusing than helpfulLenovo's Smile Dock must dieIdeaPad logo lights up distractingly beneath the keyboardStatus lights are uselessly on the lip of the laptop.

Lenovo's Y560 is an excellent laptop, with serious muscle and great speakers. If you're in the market for something that won't slow you down, has expansion options and plays back movies well, the Y560 is likely to ring your bell.
