Review Lenovo B590 MBX2JGE Notebook

 

Plastic office laptop. The B590 from Lenovo is a budget office laptop. We check how well this notebook equipped with a Core i3 processor performs. Is the system balanced, or did Lenovo cut down too much?

matte display, quiet, cool, decent keyboard/mouse replacement, easy access to hardware, Plain design and matte plastic are never wrong for an office notebook

display could be brighter, torsional stiffness of the display, A slightly brighter display. The matte surface helps, but it would be more effective together with a better brightness

Lenovo Essential B590 MBX3QUK

 

This is my very first laptop that I bought, so in used to having desktops/PCs. But I was very surprised at how good this laptop is for the price. -It runs smoothly -Lots of space on it to store photos and videos -Functional for both office work and...

I haven't had the laptop long enough to point out anything bad. Everything so far has been great and I'm super impressed.
