The black 15.6" ThinkPad E560 Notebook from Lenovo is designed for small business, enterprise, and education users. It is well suited for web browsing, email, document creation, and multimedia playback. The system is powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor, allowing you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the processor can achieve speeds of up to 3.1 GHz, and the system's 8GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is 1 x 8GB 204-pin SO-DIMM module, with one empty socket available, allowing for a total of 16GB (2 x 8GB) of RAM.
The 15.6" IPS display features a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, an anti-glare coating, LED-backlighting, a brightness of 250 cd/m2, and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The dedicated AMD Radeon R7 M370 has 2GB of GDDR5 video memory and renders 3D visuals with ease. You'll also be able to output video to an external display via the built-in HDMI and VGA ports. For connecting to the Internet, a Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are included. For connecting external peripherals such as storage drives, this may be accomplished using the three USB 3.0 ports, one of which is always powered for device charging. Additional compatible peripherals may be paired using Bluetooth 4.0 technology.
For long-term storage of your files, the 500 GB 7200 rpm hard drive provides ample space to store your files. The 2.5" hard drive is also removable, allowing it to be upgraded.
