Lenovo 3000 N500 review

 

A good laptop from Lenovo, but lacks adequate performance and features compared to rivals

Good usability ; Great keyboard

Screen could be better ; Poor graphics ; Slow CPU

Sadly the Lenovo is let down by it's budget components in terms of performance but if you don't need a super fast machine then it might be the perfect choice
