1. Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 by PCMag
Take away the glamour and the fancy technology, and you end up trimming the cost of a laptop significantly. The Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 ($750 direct) is your prototypical, blue-collared desktop replacement. It won’t seduce you with a provocative design or catch-terms like Blu-ray and 3D-gaming graphics. What it does well is hit on all the fundamentals, including an excellent user experience, good processing speeds, and decent battery life—all for one low price. But what if you want the fundamentals, plus all the trimmings? The Samsung R580 or HP Pavilion dv7-4053cl are worth their small premiums.
