Lenovo ThinkPad L520 NWB5UUK Review posted on
15.6 inch Business Notebook
One thing has become abundantly clear following our test: In case of a shortage of cash, there is room for a ThinkPad from the L-Series next to a cup of coffee. For under 700 Euros (under 600 Euros without an OS) there is a full-fledged business notebook on the Ikea desk. The 15.6 inch L520 has its strengths precisely where they are required for serious office use.

The L520 may be something of an ugly duckling, but if you're more concerned with typing long documents than watching movies, it may well appeal to you. It has enough power to handle most applications, and a long-lasting battery that will almost see you through a working day. It wins a Business Buy award.
