7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Many processor core portable PCs produced by Lenovo have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just many processor core portable PCs) and found that Lenovo also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other many processor core portable PCs that were launched more than two years ago, the Lenovo E555 has a full-size keyboard.

It is worth also looking at other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Zbook 15[pl_2633133_price], the ENVY TouchSmart 15-j105sa[pl_2143104_price], or the ENVY TouchSmart 15-j105ea[pl_2198858_price] all from HP.

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo E555 has a front camera. Most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and type to the E555 also have a front camera.

We compared all the other portable PCs with a front camera to this portable PC and we think the HP ZBook 17 G2[plb_2985052_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative laptops which also have a front camera that you might want to look at include the Zbook 15[pl_2633133_price], or the ENVY TouchSmart 15-j105sa[pl_2143104_price] both from HP.
