Summary: Compact and lightweight, Lenovo's IdeaPad Z360 offers plenty for mobile users to like. It has the performance to tackle everyday business and home computing tasks without breaking a sweat. The notebook also boasts a superbly comfortable keyboard and touchpad, and we like the clean-sounding speakers. Still, the Z360's relatively short battery life will give frequent travelers pause, and its price is a little high given the cheap-feeling design.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z360: College Student’s First Impressions
7 December 2010
Excerpt: Last month, we posted our first impressions of the Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 . Below is a first impression from a college student’s perspective. First off, the island-style keyboard is great. It has a great feel to it and was very easy to type on. However, I have to agree with Josh that Lenovo should not have messed with the right Shift key.
Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Z class basically fits right in between the ultrathin U class and the high end performing Y class. The U class is more expensive and while it is offered with similar specs at a higher price, it cannot match the graphics performance of the Z class, does not include an optical drive, and is more expensive. For $750 you get a solid performing computer in a compact package.

Pros: Nice, elegant design, Pleasant chiclet keyboard, Good workmanship, Battery life, Value for money ratio, Typing and working on the 13.3 inch notebook was a very pleasant experience.

27 May 2011
Conclusion: O IdeaPad Z360, da Lenovo, com uma configuração razoável e um preço mais acessível, é uma boa opção de portátil para usuários que estão interessados em executar tanto funções mais pesadas, de caráter profissional, quanto para o uso informal.
Summary: Denne kombinasjonen passer sikkert bra for de fleste vanlige brukere. Designen er enkel med en svart, blank finish; bare logoen stikker fram. Det gjør at overflaten har lett for å få fingermerker. I versjonen vi valgte finner du en en Core i3-prosessor, 4 GB minne og en 320 GB harddisk. I tillegg til den innebygde grafikkprosessoren er det også installert et 512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 310M-skjermkort, som er kombinert med NVIDIAs Optimus-teknologi.
Pros: Grei prosessor, Godt utformet tastatur, God lyd, eSATA
