Recently we showed you a laptop that is an attempt by a company to combine the rigidity of the past with modern looks – the ThinkPad E480. Today we are looking at essentially the same shell but in larger form factor – the 15.6-inch Lenovo ThinkPad E580. Lenovo is well known for its super sturdy ThinkPad products, dating all the way back to the IBM age. But modern times need modern methods. The old square body is not that appealing anymore. In an era of super thin MacBooks and even slimmer Dell XPS business devices, the ThinkPad series would be doomed if they didn’t change something. Okay, you are thinking why would we talk about MacBooks and XPSes when the ThinkPad E580 starts at $630. Well, because this device offers all that you need.
First of all, the CPU line-up of this model is on point – ultra-low-voltage and super powerful Core i5-8250 and Core i7-8550U. Lenovo also provides the option of a dedicated Radeon RX 550 graphics card, although our review unit features only the integrated HD Graphics 620U. And one more time we want to emphasize that this model tries to offer everything you actually need in the business segment (like a fast SSD with NVMe support, for example).
