1. A laptop designed for work and leisure

The Lenovo Thinkpad E590 follows the line of other Thinkpad models from the company. It is built in a metallic finish in black or gray with red accents, the hallmark of the brand. This particular laptop is quite stylish when compared to other members of the family. Its exact measurements are 369 x 252 x 19.9 mm, and its weight is around 2.1 kilos. The Thinkpad E590 is also largely rugged. The company has subjected it to various tests to ensure its reliability. We can say that you are prepared for business and leisure trips without your materials being affected in a short time.

As for the screen, this equipment has a 15.6-inch screen and HD resolution of 1,366 x 768 or Full HD of 1,920 x 1,080. It is an anti-reflective panel, which means that we will not have to worry if it is a sunny day and we have to finish any document outside the office or home.


2. Eighth generation power

Inside the Lenovo Thinkpad E590 there is room for a processor up to 8th generation Intel Core i7. We say up to Intel Core i7 because it can be purchased with Intel Core i3 or i5 processors depending on the performance we need. These are accompanied by a RAM of 8 or 16 GB, as well as a storage of up to 512 GB SSD. For the graphics we have an Intel UHD 620 or AMD Radeon RX 550X 2GB for the higher model. We can say that it is a perfect laptop to perform without problems, either when using heavy tools or making use of several simultaneous processes.


3. Battery for long hours

Although it is true that the battery always depends a lot on the established configuration, the Thinkpad E590 is not a laptop that lasts a few hours, at least when it comes to browsing or watching multimedia content. In navigation, it can withstand about 10 hours of use without problems, a time that drops to 8 hours and 20 minutes if we dedicate ourselves to playing videos. However, if you want to play you will get an autonomy of less than an hour and a half. In any case, this equipment has fast charging, which means that you can have a capacity of 80% in just one hour plugged into the power. Thus, if you take a 60-minute break to eat during a trip, you can easily recharge the battery for more than a day's work.


4. Safety first

Another of the great keys of the Lenovo Thinkpad E590 is that it maintains security thanks to its added functions. For starters, it includes a fingerprint reader to guarantee a private and personal login, and the maximum discretion and security when making payments on the Internet. It also has a separate Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which encrypts data at the hardware level to keep documents and files safe from hackers and cybercriminals.

But in addition, the Thinkpad E590 has a wide system of ports and connections: USB-C, 2 USB 3.1, USB 2.0, HDMI, RJ45, microSD card reader, Headphone and microphone combo port, WiFi 2 × 2 11ac or Bluetooth 4.1. There is no lack of Dolby Audio sound inside for a pleasant experience when playing music on Spotify or watching a series on Netflix.
