Lenovo has made some great computers in its time and the Y560 is no exception, it has a sleek design that really looks the part.  The sound system and JBL speakers are just great.

 I must say that after all the Lenovo software was uninstalled the laptop performed a lot better. The Core i7 CPU is great for getting stuff done quickly. After a few weeks of using the Y560 I find that the battery performance is not up to scratch with getting not much more than 2.5 hours from a charge.

The Lenovo Y560 laptop was a pleasure to review, it is easy to use and fast and very powerful, and best of all it has a good price tag at the moment. The Core i7 cpu is a gaming CPU with 1GB of dedicated memory for the GPU. If you get a chance check it out at Fry’s... or watch the video for more info.
