Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad L560-20F10026GE

85.1% Lenovo ThinkPad L560 (Core i5, HDD) Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Familiar design - new technology? At long last, Lenovo has refreshed the entry-level ThinkPad and equipped the business notebook with an up-to-date Intel processor from the Skylake series. Despite a price of well under 1000 Euros (~$1111), it is supposed to meet the high claim of the ThinkPad series. Our in-depth review will reveal whether Lenovo has managed this.

The ThinkPad L560 may not be as thin or light as some of Lenovo's more expensive computers, but it's keyboard, performance, MIL-SPEC-tested chassis and long battery life make it a fine computer for those looking to save a little bit of cash. For those who want a lighter, thinner notebook with even more endurance, Lenovo's own ThinkPad T560 (starting at $809) is slightly more expensive but delivers on both fronts.

Model: The Lenovo ThinkPad L560-20F10026GE is an entry-level laptop for business professionals who travel a lot. Its chassis is made out of black plastic and has a slight roughened surface finish. The Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit system uses a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-6200U processor, an Intel HD Graphics, 8 GB DDR3L Hyundai SDRAM (up to 16 GB), and a 1 TB WDC Slim SATA hard disk. It sports a 15.6-inch Full HD AH-IPS display with good viewing angles, colors and details. In addition, the laptop can be used outdoor thanks to its good contrast and matte finish.

The Chiclet-style keyboard offers easy and comfortable typing experience and the touchpad is precise, responsive and provides good grip thanks to its textured rubber cover. For connectivity options, the laptop includes four USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 ports, VGA port, DisplayPort, docking station port, audio combo jack, DVD drive, and a card reader, which supports MMC, SD, SDHC and SDXC formats. In addition, security features like Kensington lock and fingerprint reader are on-board. The 2.4 kg system achieves a battery life of up to 6:46 hours during web surfing via WiFi.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.

77.55%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
