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

Meant For Upgrades

 

2GB is not enough for anything any more. With that said, it's not going to break the bank to pay $30 for 2 more gigs of ram... with 4GB and an SSD, this computer will be the ultimate browsing/movie computer for under $500 including the upgrades. If...

Price ; i3 cpu with HD3000 graphics ; better than any notebook within $200 of this one

2GB RAM(not sure why they didn't just throw another stick in there... 2GB will barely run windows 7) ; Like most notebooks the HDD is pretty sluggish ; HDMI port is horrible and barely works, it takes forever to angle it just right so it works properly...

Lenovo B590

 

It came with Pro 7 which I needed. Also, I like purchasing from Newegg and have no problem with their service

This is a horrible computer. It is slow to load. It is hardly functional at times yet when I use my other lap top on the same connection, that brand is fine. I have had major buyers remorse over this

Terrible Customer Service

 

ANTOnline is an amazing awful company that will not warranty a laptop that came out of the box with a corrupt HD. RMA has been refused because original packaging has been tossed. After waiting couple days for RMA to issue packing slip, I have been...

Unknow. Laptop came with a corrupt HD. Haven't been able to do much of anything. System has been pretty much dysfunctional from day 1

Hard drive came corrupt out of the box, bricked if you will. For those who are unfamiliar, bad HD equals unuseable laptop

Good laptop

 

Overall it is a good laptop. You can't beat that price. I bought a few to use as test stations for our company. with upgraded memory, it is as fast as it is

it would be nice if it came with 4GB of RAM

You get what you pay for.

 

I liked the option of installing either Win 7 or 8. Boot up was fine, once I started installing my programs though I had a hard time as there were a ton of preloaded software that kept popping up. I must have said yes to one and it gave me a virus...
