Lenovo IdeaPad G580 Overview – Casual Laptop for the Casual User

Not so long ago we reviewed a high-end gaming laptop from Lenovo, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z580, and now it is time for its smaller brother – the Lenovo IdeaPad G580 – to get under our microscope. We’ll say right from the start that, aside their similar names, the Z580 and the G580 have almost nothing in common.

The Lenovo IdeaPad G580 targets business users and not-so-demanding casual users who don’t need an awful lot of processing power, because the Intel Core i3-2328M processor that powers the G580 is not the fastest processor out there. Still, it copes with casual tasks quite nicely, thus one shouldn’t have any problems in multi-tasking conditions, with several browser tabs opened, IM programs running and a media player in the background.

While the hardware specs of the G580 are not the most impressive, the software that comes with the laptop is. Thanks to the integrated webcam, we were able to easily log in to the laptop using Lenovo’s VeriFace face recognition software, which is a pretty neat feature for users who want an extra layer of security for their system or simply don’t want to deal with long and hard to memorize passwords.

The included Lenovo ReadyComm software made networking child’s play, indicating that Lenovo made some great efforts to make the laptop as user friendly as possible.

Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad G580 is not the best laptop out there, its i3 processor, 6GB of RAM and 750GB hard drive being far from an impressive configuration nowadays; however, it is a laptop that will get the job done without emptying your wallet for it.
