The Asus U56E-BBL5 offers a multitude of ways to connect you to the internet: Via WiMAX, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi 802.11n. The Lenovo IdeaPadV570-1066A9U also offers these options. Both laptops are similar in everything from performance to aluminum design. Where they depart is in ports and battery life: The Asus U56E-BBL5 offers a more standardized USB 3.0 port and over 7 hours of battery life whereas the Lenovo V570-1066A9U offers an eSATA port and only 4:41 battery time. So if you're more the road warrior, the U56E-BBL5 sounds like the better option. It may only cost $20 more the Lenovo V570-1066A9U, but the U56E-BBL5's bigger battery, 2GB more memory, and USB 3.0 will make the difference when transferring files to your external hard drives. It's for these reasons that the Asus U56E-BBL5 replaces the Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066A9U as the new Editors' Choice for budget laptops.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
