Save $500+ on Lenovo U530 Touch-Screen Laptop – PC Magazine
For a limited time, Lenovo is selling the 15.6-inch U530 touch-screen laptop for just $599. Simply apply coupon code “USPU590827” in your shopping cart, and you’ll save 47 percent off of the list price.
On the inside, the U530 sports a fourth-generation, dual-core 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 CPU, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. As for the 15.6-inch display, it benefits from LED lighting, a full HD resolution of 1,920 by 1,080, an anti-glare coating, and 10-point multitouch sensitivity. And thanks to the built-in HDMI port, you can also enjoy full HD content on nearly any modern monitor or HDTV.
While the touch screen is definitely a nice way to browse and play casual games, this configuration doesn’t skimp on the traditional inputs. The touchpad is large and capable of multitouch, and the keyboard has backlighting and a number pad. The U530 doesn’t compromise here; it works well regardless of your input preferences.
Weighing in at about 5 pounds, and measuring only 0.86 inches, this laptop offers a nice balance between performance and portability. It’s a bit hefty, but that gorgeous screen is worth a little extra weight. And since it offers up to 10 hours of battery life, this laptop will work well if you’re frequently away from your desk.
Keep in mind, it comes with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) installed by default, but you’ll be eligible to upgrade to Windows 10 (64-bit) for free until July 2016. Microsoft’s latest OS isn’t quite as focused on the touch interface as the previous version, but the addition of the Cortana personal assistant, the Edge Web browser, and the Xbox app make this upgrade well worth your time.
