Review Lenovo B560 Notebook

 

Essential. Office bargain hunters prick up their ears when Nvidia's Optimus is offered along with a graphics card for 399 euros. This is also the reason for our review of Lenovo's Essential B series. Performance for money champion or snail-paced runner?

Office performance, Quiet & cool, Low power consumption, Feasible battery life, Resistant case, Fingerprint reader & eSATA, Number pad, Good key drop and pressure point, Good touchpad haptics, The ribbed texture on the surfaces is pleasant to handle....

TFT not AR treated, Low contrasts, Narrow viewing angles, Touchpad keys, Fan pulsates slightly, Number pad's layout, Coiling key bed, An AR coated screen would have made a buying decision a lot easier for many
