The display resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels, but we don’t know if it’s glossy or anti-glare.
According to the product page, the laptop has a battery life of up to 4 hours and 30 minutes.
Lenovo’s V560 also includes a 1.3MP web camera, fingerprint reader, three USB ports, an eSATA/USB combo connector, 4-in-1 media card reader, and Gigabit LAN port. It doesn’t feature HDMI output. We assume that it has a VGA port.
