So, a smart purchase for those who want performance from their chosen processor. You'd be looking at an I7, and a huge price hike to get a better Intel processor.
That's the upside, so is there a downside? Yes, but IMHO they're not unreasonable for the cost. The first thing I noticed is that the finger print reader is very fiddly compared to the one on my old HP model. I probably won't bother with it. How many people will actually care too much?!
Secondly, the screen isn't great. It's gloss finish isn't fantastic in sunlight, and viewing angles are very restricted. Also, the blacks aren't as dark as more expensive screens provide.
The laptop does feature a nice keyboard, with efficient function keys; the lenovo software is efficient, and the sounds produced are pleasing. The machine has a nice profile, with a depth of only 3.5cm. Build quality seems good.
Kenyard's review of this product offers comprehensive specification details, which I won't duplicate. Except to emphasise that it is the 5400rpm hard drive which ties the performance ratings to 5.6.
Overall this is a good quality laptop, whose processor hits the high notes and more than compensates for an unimpressive screen. You could pay £200 less for a significantly lower quality laptop, or £500 more for a top end gaming laptop, but this seems a bargain in the mid-range.
