Lenovo laptops haven’t been quite in the limelight for quite a few times, and the origin of ultra books has led to ageing of notebooks. But there are still many good notebooks available out there that offer great specs at affordable rates whereas the ultra books burn a hole in the owner’s pocket. Lenovo B575-1450ALU is another affordable notebook by Lenovo.
Lenovo B575-1450ALU Notebook Features
Boasting a large 15.6 inches screen with a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, the pictures are crisp and well detailed. LED display ensures that it is power saving and hence saving some precious minutes of battery.
Dimensions measuring 1.3 inches x 14.9 inches x 9.9 inches, the notebook is definitely not on the slimmer side and not on the lighter side either, its weight tipping the scales at 5.2 pounds.
But this is adequate because notebooks tend to be heavier and thicker than ultra books. There are a plethora of docks and ports available: 4 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x HDMI port, 1 x VGA port, 6 in 1 media card reader and fingerprint reader.
Hardware and Processor
Powered by a AMD E-450 accelerated processor that runs at a clock speed of about 1.65 GHz. With a pass mark rating of 743, it is higher than Intel atom N570 but lower than Intel Celeron 867.
The Radeon HD 6320 graphics is better than the integrated graphics present on sandy bridge processors. 4 GB DDR3 RAM is enough for playing mediocre games and everyday computing. 320 GB internal hard disk provides enough room for most software and at a speed of 5400 RPM, it never gets slow but the temperature levels can rise, so one must have a laptop cooling system installed.

Not much to say, the notebook has 802.11n wireless Ethernet LAN. 0.3 MP Webcam is added as well. The lack of Bluetooth or NFC definitely is not expected.
Accutype keyboard has got a nice feeling to them when it comes to typing and provides less typing errors and there is enough palm rest and a large touchpad with physical buttons. Windows 7 home premium is added along which isn’t a new thing. 3 year limited warranty is an attempt to increase the early sales. Stereo speakers are of a good quality although the volume starts to distort as the volume increases. The six cell regular battery performed well than expected, I worked out for four and a half hours over regular usage.
Thus, it can be concluded that the notebook packs a punch in terms of the battery life, display quality and the performance of the hard drive and RAM. But the absence of Bluetooth is just something that leaves to be desired of. Nevertheless, at a price of $330 and a limited 3 year manufacturer warranty, the laptop is among one of the best 15.6 inches notebooks available in the market so far although it lacks certain features. Even though it does not match the requirements of a hardcore gamer or an ultra book seeker, but it offers the best at the given price.
