|Lenovo G580 Corei5, 1TB/6GB, Laptop||
The Lenovo G580 is a hulking giant with surprising grace. Its bulky design is offset by its strong performance and quality keyboard.
The Lenovo G580 isn’t a looker. Right away, it’s obvious that this machine is a budget device. Built like a tank without the durability, this awkward brick of a machine will deter many onlookers. However, the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” may ring true for this budget notebook.
With a surprisingly comfortable keyboard and decent specs, this machine will surprise many. The Intel i5-3210m processor isn’t going to blow users away, but it’s nothing to scoff at given the machines entry-level price point.
Ports and Features
Not only does the Lenovo offer a solid selection of ports, but the device spaces them adequately with all of the desired ports in reach. It’s also nice to see USB ports located on both sides of the machine in case users want to add a USB enabled mouse. For an entry-level notebook the Lenovo G580 offers an impressive amount of connectivity.
Screen and Speakers
The display offers generous horizontal viewing angles, with images holding up well past 100 degrees, making the display suitable for multiple viewers. However, on the vertical plane the display does not hold up as well, showing significant image distortion when the display is titled both forward and backwards.
