Contemporary design, executive style
The new Lenovo IdeaPad G565 incorporates a contemporary design with executive class features. It is pretty bulky laptop, weigting around 5.5 kg. The keypad is cramped for space, amking way for the textured design over the battery compartment, including two integrated speakers on it and the textured speakers on it and the textured palm-rest below the keypad.
The Lenovo IdeaPad G565 delivered an average performance across all the synthetic benchmark tests, with a decent showing in the real-world and gaming benchmark tests. It showcased a rahter ordinary battery-life (2 hours and 56 minutes), in spite of the low-end hardware configuration. The overall score of 3Dmark 2006 and Maxon CineBench test are decent owing to the presense of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 in its hardware configuration.
The Lenovo IdeaPad G565 is a decent mid-range laptop which provides good value for money, with its executive style features at an affordable price. Although, its bulky form factor weighting around 5.5 kg is a major hindrance for office goers and frequent travellers. However, it makes a good buy at Rs. 38,090 with its ability for casual gaming at decent frame rates and presense of executive style features being the major selling points.
