Lenovo Ideapad Y560 Review
The cover looks very original and interesting rough matte finish with the addition of a shiny chips on which some places suffered glossy intricate pattern of geometric polygons, interwoven with hexagons. On the cover are allocated powerful loops made by the metal, which creates a sense of security, and the logo of Lenovo, styled chrome-plated metal.Completes the form migrated from last year's line of orange-bronze edging, and so is not particularly thick cover. Edging is purely an aesthetic role. In the first model Y series it was not at all, although already there was a lot of red icons and buttons that appear on the lenovo x61s battery as if in defiance of the blue icons on the keyboards of classic Thinkpad-s.
The cover is held by two moderately tight plastic loops, colored by the metal on the outside, but inside flaunting the abundance of black gloss, also bordering the screen. Latches on the housing there, open the lid you can easily with one hand on the maximum angle of approximately 135 degrees.Operating notebook pleasing to the eye - all modest, and exactly in good taste, the basic designs are similar to those applied in the lineup last year, although the location of ports seriously altered.The surface of the upper block tactile buttons, located between the speakers, JBL, made from black glossy plastic, like the screen frame. A plastic zone around the keyboard unit is roughly stylized polished metal, filled with a thick layer of glossy varnish.
The prints are everywhere, especially they will accumulate on top, the touch buttons. However, the functions of touch keys are duplicated, so that they can not use it, so as not to stain the surface. An exception is the band SlideNav bar, which we describe later.It is worth noting that the prints can be seen only with the direct view of the thinkpad t40 battery at an acute angle, they are less noticeable. Definitely not enough of this dull metallic inserts, like some models of competitors.We now turn to the side faces and ports for connecting external devices.When you open the lid the screen blocks access to the back side where the battery terminals so there place is meaningless.
Although the bottom is not accepted to stare, but the changes compared to the Y550 is quite apparent here - a platform is more "licked" and pleasing to the eye corners disappeared, vanished, but instead of boring and small air intake grids appeared large ornamental windows. Four rubber feet securely hold the pyramid thinkpad t42 battery notebook on the table and do not let it slide. For example, during heavy pulling the USB cable the laptop will remain in place.
To look inside, or something to replace, such as the bar or the memory card Mini PCI-E, must Okrut few screws. By the way, screws, Tighten, ie, the entirely screw remains in the cap and can not fall out of it. Thanks to lose the screws fixing it is simply impossible.Cooling the processor and graphics card hanging on the general heat channel, so that under high load will be warming up together, and with time temperature records in the 90 ° C can be nasty norm. And in the summer so far and may overheat up to hang. Very carefully whether they concern the conditions of operation and from time to time cleaning of the cooling system of the dust!
