Reviews for the Lenovo B470-431523U

70% Lenovo Essential B470 Intel Core i5-2410M
Source: CNet English
We've previously looked at a laptop from Lenovo's Essential G series (the G570), and now it's time to check out the Essential B series. If you're unclear on the difference, Lenovo helpfully offers that the B series consists of "budget laptops for working at home or at the office," while the G series is described as "everyday laptops at a great price."

Lenovo Essential B470 Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The large hard drive doesn’t compensate for the 5400rpm speed. There’s not even an option to upgrade. The B470 Essential’s fan ran quiet as a church mouse, and perhaps the coolness of the components contributed to a very impressive 6 hours 17 minutes on medium usage tasks (browsing, WiFi, Windows’ balanced power profile).

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
