Display and Design
The Lenovo Ideapad B490 (59-384796) flaunts a HD LED backlit display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels which is suitable for a 14-inch screen and makes pictures appear clear and sharp. The black colored casing weighs just 2.1kg and sports simple keyboard and touchpad as the sole input units.
Processor and OS
Under the hood, the Ideapad notebook is loaded with the Intel Core i5 3230M processor belonging to the 3rd generation series and galloping at a clock speed of 2.6GHz. It is built on QM77 Express chipset and is supported by a DDR3 RAM of just 2GB functioning at 1600GHz and expandable via the 2 user accessible memory ports. The tough graphics needs are handled smartly by the Intel HD 400 graphics unit. The device comes preloaded with the Disk Operating System.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Lenovo Ideapad B490 (59-384796) has been spotted with a VGA webcam which is good for simple video calls. It also has a 500GB SATA hard disk that provides ample space for storing files. You can even use the DVD RW Drive for storage of files on CDs and DVDs.
The sharp and vivid HD display backed by sound graphics scores well in terms of enhanced visibility. It is complemented well by the stereo speakers.
Battery and Connectivity
The Lenovo Ideapad B490 (59-384796) is extremely impressive in terms of its battery performance. The company claims that it can run in full vigour for up to 6 hours on single charge with its 6 cell Li-ion battery. From the connectivity point of view, the laptop has been loaded with Ethernet Gigabit LAN, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, 2 USB 2.0 slots, 1 USB 3.0 port and HDMI out.


The Lenovo Ideapad B490 (59-384796) has a sound processor to run tasks proficiently and boasts of a mighty battery relieving you from carrying your charger all the time. However, it lacks a good camera or a sound RAM. Moreover, you have to replace the inbuilt DOS with a more user friendly platform.
