Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad G560-0679AKU
Source: PC Mag
For shoppers on a budget, the Lenovo G560-0679AKU manages to hit all the right notes: decent processing power, sizeable storage, and a design that's fit for grown-ups. It doesn't quite supplant the Acer Aspire AS5745-7247, the Editors' Choice in budget laptops, due to the latter's larger hard drive and better battery life for the same price, but it comes pretty close.
