At a Black Friday-like price of $300, Best Buy is selling the Lenovo B575 – 1450ALU 15.6-inch notebook PC, featuring the AMD E-Series E-450 processor.
The E-450 1.65GHz dual core Fusion chip includes the Radeon HD 6320 graphics, and is paired with 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium, DVD burner, and 1366 x 768 LED-backlight screen. The included chip is sufficient for everyday web browsing, email, and document editing tasks, as well as for 1080p videos thanks to a built-in HD video decoder.
The 5.2 pound 1.3-inch thick B575 has a 0.3MP web camera, HDMI, Wi-Fi, four USB ports, and a 6-in-1 media card reader, so it’s a fully equipped laptop.
Since it’s basically an entry business-class system, it has a fingerprint reader and appropriate simple design with sharp edges and matte black surfaces.
If you add to that its quality AccuType chiclet-style keyboard with ergonomically curved keys, the Lenovo B575 – 1450ALU doesn’t look cheap at all.
