Lenovo B590 G500 review vol.1 ? ??? B590 ?????????

4 Reasons For

Lenovo Notebook PCs Have Good Reviews

On average Lenovo portable PCs have good ratings compared to other brands as do all notebook PCs built by Lenovo.

Fairly Big Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the B590 is 10", the biggest is 18", and the average display diagonal is 14". The Lenovo B590 has one of the bigger display diagonals (15.6 inches) amongst portable PCs of this age.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 15.6" notebook PCs and we think the HP ProBook 4530s[plb_1424898_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a bigger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Lenovo Y70[plb_2964651_price] (17.3" and higher rated).
