81% Review Lenovo IdeaPad N581 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Good and cheap. We are testing one of the lowest priced members from Lenovo's IdeaPad N581 series with the IdeaPad N581-MBA4YGE. The laptop costs around 400 Euros (~$518), sports a dual-core Pentium processor and relies on Window 7 as the operating system. Our test will show whether the device is worth its money.
