Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad G580-MAAQ9UK

70% Lenovo G580 MAAQ9UK review
Source: PC Advisor English
Battery life was good but not great. Its four hours of streaming video is ok, and you can expect longer if you disable Wi-Fi, but other laptops last longer at this price. The G580 is fairly weighty at 2.4Kg, so it’s more suited to use at home or in the office rather than life on the road.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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.


2.7 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.
