Lenovo G580: Notebook specifications

company Lenovo - one of the world's leading brands of notebook manufacturers.The plan, voiced by the Chinese corporation, take a leading position in terms of sales in the segment (until the "peloton" is headed by HP).Experts note the ever-increasing quality and manufacturability of electronics under the brand Lenovo, and laptops are no exception.The company has introduced a productive and competitive samples computers.The Chinese market is captured in several segments.For example, in a class premium level notebook brand stands for honor line ThinkPad, which, according to many experts in quality very close to the devices from Apple.

example of success, according to some analysts, the budget model - laptop IdeaPad G580.It should be noted at once, this machine has a lot of kits, in some cases, very different from each other.Many experts considered the standard model Lenovo G580 (20150), the technical characteristics of which in particular set have a high frequency of occurrence in Russia.However, it is possible to study the features of a laptop, without having to search for the differences between the individual specifications.What we are going to do today.Consider aspects of the design Lenovo G580, product specifications, functional features of the separate hardware components.


notebook is equipped with an Intel Core version i5, operating with a frequency of 2.5 GHz.RAM - as much as 6 GB.Memory technology - DDR3, the clock frequency of the modules - 1.6 GHz.These resources are sufficient for correct and stable startup programs "home" type (such as, for example, PhotoShop).Ideological gamers probably do not appreciate the true capabilities Lenovo G580 - specification in nominal terms, too, "the office."But if we talk about the games, it is perfectly acceptable to say that the computer will pull many of today's "bestseller".

Laptop Hard Drive - 1 thousand. GB, the speed of rotation of the axis of the hard drive is not too big - 5400 rev / min.Works hard disk interface SATA.This means that the device is adapted for rapid transmission of large amounts of files.However, this property have almost all modern "Winchester".Therefore, we fix: a laptop with a clean hard disk, not inferior to that established in the competing solutions from other brands.

computer equipped with a display, made by technology WXGA LED.The diameter of the screen - 15.6 inches, resolution - 1366 786 pixels.There is a built-in webcam, however, its resolution quite modest - 0.3 megapixels.Video is a computer controlled "tandem" video card Intel HD Graphics 4000 model (in some versions - 3000) and the GeForce GT 635M model (in some models - G710).The first type - the so-called full-time video card, the second - "discrete".Starting the game is known to depend not only on the power of the CPU, RAM and technologies volume.It also plays a significant role and performance of the video subsystem.With it, experts say, due to the separation of functions between the staff and the discrete graphics card, the laptop's all right.

most important characteristic of the laptop Lenovo G580 - a wide range of communication capabilities.Brand manufacturer gave the device to the maximum users to integrate it with other device - such as computers, televisions, mobile gadgets.There

DVD-RW, support WiFi, Bluetooth.The radio works on technology Dolby Advanced, computer - 2 speakers.Connectivity is via ports USB 2.0, 3.0, VGA-card slot, HDMI-connector.The network card is equipped with an RJ-45 port.There audioslot combined type, as well as a card reader.The battery of the laptop is very powerful, it consists of 6 sections with a total capacity 47 watt / hour.

Laptop medium size.Its length - 376 mm, width - 245, the thickness (with the lid closed) - 34.3.The device weighs relatively little - 2.6 kg.Managed by the laptop 64-bit Windows OS version 8.


devaysa for any modification, including the "model" for the Russian market notebook Lenovo G580 (20150), the technical characteristics are very important.But no less important for users of the device and the aesthetic component design.

laptop case is characterized by the absence of sharp corners.The main parts are made of high quality plastic, metal partially used.The design of the housing, according to experts, is very reliable.No backlash, clearances and creaking observed.In front you can see the elegant touchpad.Vents, like many notebooks below.

many experts appearance are perceived as strict and, to some extent conservative.At the same time, experts say, that such a design could make a greater number of buyers, than if he had some unusual elements, adapted to the particular style, gender or age of the user.

Now we will study the most important in terms of consumer properties laptop specifications in more detail, as well as other features of the device.


first in importance for a device such as a laptop Lenovo G580, specifications - this, of course, the properties of the CPU.So, what is the main chip PC and a laptop is that - say by experienced IT-specialists.Performance modifications installed in the majority of G580 i5 processor with cache of 3 MB, running on two cores, slightly higher than the "brother" with the index i3-3210M (typically budgetary chips), but at the same time gives i7-3520M(approximate to that of a "premium" chips).Although among the experts have the opinion that there is little difference what kind of processor is in the Lenovo G580.Specifications Core i3, some experts believe, is fundamentally not lag behind peers and not ahead of them.

It should be noted that, depending on the modification of the laptop brand manufacturer can install a variety of processors.That is, do not be surprised if we find in the catalog favorite online computer store in this series, where there is a chip Celeron.An interesting fact is that this brand processors for more than 15 years and it seems, is not going to give up their positions in the market.

Some users may conclude, seeing how "average" in terms of processor features Lenovo G580 - the technical characteristics of the laptop greatly inferior to those enjoyed by counterparts.But this conclusion would be premature.Not least because that modern computer technology the role of the processor is not the determining factor.Even if the 15-year-old is on the processor brand Lenovo G580, specifications Celeron modern versions make the chip is quite competitive.

It may well be that at the chip average performance or that the laptop will be able to perform more tasks than the model of another company with a more powerful processor.Why is that?It's simple: due to better optimization of other hardware components.

therefore, not paying substantial attention on how the chip is equipped with a laptop - i5 or Celeron, explore other, equally important to determine the real possibilities of Lenovo G580, specifications.

screen display laptop is equipped with LED-backlit, providing high image quality when viewing at any angle.The brightness of the screen is estimated by experts as sufficient to meet user daily tasks.The screen is glossy, which contributes to the high quality of color reproduction (but here there is a minus - will be noticeable glare).Type the display surface, as suggested by most experts, it is not the most important feature of the laptop Lenovo G580.The user environment similar opinion in general.All the more so if absolutely necessary, you can connect a laptop using multiple connectors to an external device with a more powerful screen (such as HD-TV).

aspect ratio display laptop - 16 to 9, so you can view it on the widescreen video, is now regarded as a typical standard media.The horizontal visibility of the screen, according to many experts, a little better than in the vertical.


Each of the two built-in speakers have a capacity of 1500 watts.They are located very successfully - in the front.Therefore, the entire audio stream is directed towards the user.With the pre-installed module Dolby Advanced Audio can flexibly adjust audio settings (such as, for example, frequency band).You can use third-party software equalizer (at least the one that is in Windows Media Player).The quality of sound expert opinions vary widely.There are opinions that are "drawdown" of individual frequencies.However, if you are not a professional musician, the sound quality tunes it, experts believe, be quite satisfied.

video card

If we buy a laptop to the modification, where there is a graphics module GeForce GT 635M, it can be assumed that we were lucky.This card has a RAM capacity of 2 GB, and supports the latest Direct X11.Although this module and can not be considered a typical game, many gamers will be satisfied with its performance.In particular, such products industry, like Battlefield 3, will be able to run on a laptop with almost no inhibitions and hang-ups (unless, of course, do not exhibit maximum detail drawing).Not bad computer consults, as experts note, with races (the level of F1, published in 2012).And if we talk about the "typical" modes of use Lenovo G580, specifications video they more than match: start the movie, flash movie, make a presentation or "otfotoshopit" image to the device without problems.

keyboard, touchpad

branded computer is equipped with a keyboard with an ergonomic and stylish design, the use of which, according to experts, differs a great comfort.The keys have a "long course", low noise depression.Marking buttons very high quality.There is a block of numbers activated button NumLuck.Touchpad notebook is not in the center, and a little to the left axis.Conveniently, the surface has a point structure.This has a positive effect on the stability characteristics kursora.Tehnicheskie Lenovo IdeaPad G580 in terms of control is very important.With them, all right.

According to the observation of a number of experts, the keyboard of the notebook, is exactly the same as what is on the premium brand devaysakh - computer ruler ThinkPad.The presence of a digital keyboard unit makes the notebook rather unique when it comes to the use of school children, students, universities, accounting or, say, at some stages of the engineering calculations.

Battery 6-cell battery provides reliable autonomous operation for 4-5 hours when using a device with an average intensity.Under certain load conditions, which managed to reach testers (for example, video processing with compression), the battery was barely enough for 60 minutes.If, for example, without a break to sit on the Internet, mostly by reading text files and downloading pictures from time to time, the battery will last approximately 3 hours.


Most pickings notebook is equipped with the Windows version 8 running on a 64-bit scheme.This operating system provides the best support for existing hardware, so the replacement of the OS on the other (as an option, the earlier version of Windows) is not desirable.

It should be noted that in the market there are modifications of the notebook delivered without an operating system (or DOS-fitted modules that have extremely limited functionality).


One of the most popular options for modern laptops - wireless.No exception and Lenovo G580.Specifications WiFi in the device fairly standard.The module supports communication in any of today's bands - "b", "g" and the fastest - "n".It is possible, if there is no router, to organize sessions of "computer-to-computer" (or ad-hoc).

Summary experts

Experts praise laptop for balance functions and performance.The device is an optimal tool for the everyday user tasks (access to the Internet, listening to music, create and edit documents, etc.).The functionality of the notebook is excellent, regardless of the hardware components installed in a particular configuration.It does not matter specification: whether we are dealing with the model 20150, or in the hands of our Lenovo G580 (20157) - technical specifications together give almost identical performance.The difference in the small details concerning the architecture of individual chips.Any well, what kind of processor is in the specific model Lenovo G580 - i3, technical specifications which are nominally more "budget" or "classic" - Celeron.

Experts recognize that the ratio of price and quality of this laptop - one of the best among the devices in this segment.Praise your computer for a large number of communications capabilities (including modern port USB 3.0, allowing you to transfer files with very high speed), each of which is characterized by stable performance and ease of use.

Laptop Lenovo G580, specifications which we reviewed today - the perfect solution for a relatively low (in the range of 18-20 thousand. Rub., Depending on the dealer) cost.

Notebook, as the majority of the experts, that a technological niche in which competition between brands is not for the design and ease of use (in this component of such computer equipment loses mobile gadgets), and in terms of performance and stability.Of course, both brands is provided in relation to the different segments and in the case of the Lenovo G580 it comes to the type of device the budget.According to experts, the Chinese brand has all the chances to keep their place in the group of the world's leading providers of low-cost computers that have the best combination of price, features and performance.Laptop G580 - an example of a successful, competitive model that can allow companies from China to develop their success in the international market.
