  • Windows Professional
  • Intel Skylake processor
  • TrackPoint nub
  • Fingerprint reader


  • Not MIL-SPEC tested
  • Dull display
  • Lots of Lenovo bloatware

Bottom Line

The Lenovo ThinkPad E560 features powerful hardware, a fingerprint reader and Windows 7 Pro. But the 4GB of RAM will feel a bit sluggish when it comes to heavier multitasking.

The Lenovo ThinkPad E560 is a bestselling 2016 15.6-inch laptop that has been praised for its Intel Skylake processor, fast AC WiFi, great battery life and its comfortable keyboard. But unlike many of the ThinkPads, the Lenovo ThinkPad E560 has not been MIL-SPEC tested and might not be as durable as other Lenovo models. Some users have commented that the display is slightly dull. The Lenovo ThinkPad E560 is a great choice for the office and offers great security with both TPM encryption and a fingerprint reader.

    The Lenovo ThinkPad E560 has almost 8 hours of battery life and a comfortable keyboard, but it doesn't stand up to the durability standards of other business laptops.

    For the first time, Lenovo equips a ThinkPad from the E500 series with a high-quality IPS display as well as a graphics card with fast GDDR5 memory. The price including SSD and i7 CPU is still below 1,000 Euros (~$1096) – is it a bargain?
