The Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 looks pretty unassuming from the outside. But inside, this 15-inch notebook delivers fast performance and graphical oomph with a mesmerizing 1080p display. Starting at $849 ( I got mine for $1,099 as configured), the Y580 is a multimedia powerhouse loaded with an Ivy Bridge processor and Nvidia GTX graphics.

Design

Will the Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 win an award for best design? The answer is a big NO. But if you are concerned about performance instead of class then you have it all here. The IdeaPad Y580 goes for function over style. Its Dawn Gray brushed aluminum lid is very subdued, as are its gently sloped edges. Lenovo’s logo sits unassumingly in the top right corner. Opening the lid reveals more brushed aluminum with a few more embellishments, most notably the pair of chrome-wrapped JBL speakers above the keyboard. Buttons for power and Lenovo OneKey Recovery sit near the left speaker while buttons for OneKey Theater (screen brightness and audio presets) and mute are next to the right speaker.

As for the arrangement of ports Lenovo did a fairly good job. The right side of the notebook features a single USB 3.0 slot, a USB 2.0 slot, a tray-loading Blu- ray reader/DVD burner, and
jacks for headphones, microphone and the AC adapter. Two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, Ethernet, VGA and a secure lock slot sit on the notebook’s left. A 6-in-1 card reader can be found on the Y580’s front right lip.

Performance

My Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 comes equipped with a 2.3-GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-3612QM CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB 5,400-rpm hard drive and a 32GB SSD cache, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 handled my multitasking tests with ease. I streamed a movie with 10 open tabs in Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome while running a full system scan without any problems.
