Review Lenovo ThinkPad L520 NWB53GE Notebook


ThinkPad-Discounter. A real ThinkPad available for less than 600

Good application performance; Very quiet and cool; Matte display; Very good Trackpoint and mouse; ThinkVantage software; Low power consumption; Docking Port; Helpful ThinkVantage Tools

Unfavorable location of the ports; Partially unfavorable key layout; Weak viewing angle stability; Low contrasts; Bendable lid; Battery is a bit wobbly; No USB 3.0

For a Core i3 notebook the performance is surprisingly good. An almost constantly whispering operation, but nevertheless a good application performance.

Lenovo ThinkPad L520 review


Among the shiny consumer laptops that are Shopper's bread and butter, Lenovo's ThinkPad L520 sticks out. Its blocky, angular design; matt screen and unusual range of expansion ports shout "business laptop", but even though it also has Windows 7...

The ThinkPad L520's styling will appeal to those who prefer function over form, and its fast processor, great keyboard and long battery life make it a sound business buy.
