Robust, it sports a relatively discreet and professional look with its matte black design.
The Lenovo ThinkPad E580 (20KS001JFR) is a rugged high-definition 15-inch notebook designed for everyday business use.
Its transport is facilitated by its compactness and its contained weight. Side autonomy, if the brand communicates on 13 hours of battery operation, practice table about 7 hours far from a socket surfing the Internet via Wi-Fi, and of course in lighter use.
The antireflection treatment of the screen is particularly appreciable because it provides better visibility than a glossy slab in bright environment (ex: outdoor). IPS, the screen also offers a more accurate colorimetry than average as well as important viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. With its anti-glare treatment, the screen is very suitable for displaying High Definition content and especially videos because of its 16 / 9th format.
It is of course possible to look at photos and videos on this Ultrabook thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics solution integrated into the processor. As the latter is not accompanied by a dedicated GPU, this computer is not suitable for games or heavy graphics.
Nevertheless, it delivers good overall performance with its 8 GB of RAM and its quad core i5-8250U Kaby Lake Refresh low power processor that guarantees faster processing than a Kaby Lake i5-7200U Dual Core in the areas exploiting the architecture. multicore (ex: photo editing).
SSD storage helps to make this Ultrabook very responsive to use and significantly more fluid than if you were dealing with a hard drive. Remember that compared to a hard drive, a SSD is much faster but also less energy, more resistant to shock and silent. As often, however, the capacity of the embedded SSD is lower than the standard of the hard drives.
In the case where the 256 GB proposed here would prove insufficient, do not panic however. We can indeed use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device represents an interesting solution because it takes advantage of transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
Onboard connectivity is just 3 USB including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) and 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wireless, d an audio port or a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a monitor or TV for example.
While some will certainly regret the lack of backlighting system chiclet keyboard keys, others will appreciate that it is resistant to splashing liquid and is accompanied by a dual pointing system. In addition to the traditional touchpad, there is indeed integrated a Trackpoint for more precision, often appreciated by professionals.
These are the main target of Lenovo with this Ultrabook. To seduce them, a biometric reader (Windows Hello compatible) is part of the identification for a simple and secure way on the system, in this case Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than Windows 10 classic thanks to its advanced tools. network and security management like BitLocker.
