Lenovo B5400 MB825GE

The Lenovo B5400 MB825GE is a laptop made for both business and casual users. The exterior of this laptop is simple and does what it needs to do; firmly and safely house the hardware in the laptop. The plastic casing, however, makes it look pretty flimsy. It comes with the basic ports such as the audio port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, a VGA port, HDMI and an Ethernet port for wired connections.

The Lenovo supports the usual 802.11 Wi-Fi and the latest Bluetooth 4.0. It is equipped with an Intel i5 4200M processor giving it reasonable processing power to run semi advanced software. It also comes with a dedicated graphics card, the Nvidia GeForce GT 720M, which boosts its graphical capabilities. Its 15.6 inch display features a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels providing vivid and clear pictures.

However, the battery life is not up to par. Even though it has a 48 Wh battery, its battery life can only be compared to laptops with 37 Wh battery. This can be a real deal breaker to some. All in all, the Lenovo B5400 MB825GE is a simple laptop, suitable for users who do not require much. The laptop itself runs well and is inexpensive.

73% Review Lenovo B5400 MB825GE Notebook | Notebookcheck
Taken out of service. "The best price performance ratio for the price-conscious budget" – Lenovo's inexpensive office notebook is not focused on the design but the performance is very good in return.

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.
