It’s easy to get caught up in a game of one-upsmanship in the consumer electronics world. This manufacturer’s laptop is thinner than everyone’s. This one’s battery lasts longer than everybody. But there are folks out there looking for a good deal everyday and the Lenovo Essentials G575 15.6-inch Dual-core AMD Fusion Laptop (long name!) is pretty darn good. Coming in at roughly the same price as any offering from the netbook craze (remember that?), you get instead a full-fledged higher-end Lenovo G575 that packs a dual-core AMD E-350 processor, “1.6GHz dual core, Win 7 Home 64, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 15.6-inch 1366×768 glossy LCD, 750GB 5400rpm HDD, DVD burner, 6-cell battery, b/g/n WiFi, and 1 year warranty.”
For a limited time (until June 8th) you can get it for $539 after a $160 rebate.
