The Good

  • Budget Build
  • Inputs
  • Display

The Bad

  • Design
  • Graphics

Budget Build: Ordinarily, laptops in this price range suffer in the graphics or processing department. The Lenovo IdeaPad 500 uses AMD hardware, instead of Intel, and offers more processing power with a decent graphics processor to boot. No need to worry about Intel HD Graphics messing with your drivers!
Inputs: Unlike many modern gaming laptops, this machine has HDMI and VGA inputs, making setting up a second display incredibly easy. Any displays, from an older monitor to a flat-screen TV, will function flawlessly.
Display: What’s truly impressive about this laptop is its full HD 1080p screen. Ordinarily, laptops in this price range feature displays closer to 720p resolution.
Design: Beauty may be only skin deep, but this machine is definitely not a looker. With a light gray color scheme and an all-plastic exterior, this is a chunky looking machine.
Graphics: While the integrated graphics processor is leaps and bounds ahead of Intel processors, this machine is at its best when running older games and emulators.
