Lenovo G580 Core i5 laptop with Windows 8 for £360

Check out the Lenovo G580 laptop available from Dabs for £360 after a whopping £140 discount. The deal, which includes free delivery, is one of the cheapest for a Core i5 laptop in the UK.

This particular version of the G580 runs an Intel Core i5-3210M. This processor is based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, has two cores and is clocked at 1.7GHz (with a “Turbo boost” of up to 2.4GHz).

There’s also 6GB of RAM, a 500GB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, a 15.6in 1,366 x 768 pixel VibrantView display, a webcam, a keyboard (Accutype with rounded keys) plus a numeric keypad, a 6-cell battery, an Ethernet port, a card reader, three USB ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Windows 8.

The description on Dabs’ website even says that it supports “WIMAX2” although we’re dubious about that.

Other Lenovo-only features include an “advanced” energy saving technology which increases the long term durability of the battery, a OneKey rescure system (the name says it all) and an advanced networking and internet connection management system called ReadyComm.

Note that you can buy Office 365 Home Premium, a perfect complement to this laptop, for a mere £66.50 at PC World.
