Reviews for the Lenovo B5400 MB825GE

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.

Model:

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M: Lower middle-class graphics card based on the 28 nm GF117 (Fermi). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
4200M: Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


73%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
