Overall, we can safely sum up the SH561 as a dependable and portable machine with decent processing and graphics hardware to match. Although it is tough for us to fault the SH561 apart from its tight viewing angle, it would also be hard to justify the pricey $2,388 tag when more affordable alternatives are available.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
