Summary: As long as the price stays around $599, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z370 should be a strong consideration for anyone looking for a very good all-around 13-inch laptop, although it's hardly a showstopper.
Cons: The battery life is disappointing compared with recent 2011 laptops, and configuration options are limited.
Summary: The $629 Lenovo IdeaPad Z370 offers solid overall performance, a fast boot time, and a vivid display wrapped in an eye-catching blue design. However, its poor endurance is a turnoff, expecially for a 13-inch system. While it's not as powerful, the HP Pavilion dm4t offers 7 hours of battery life in an aluminum chassis for $50 less. But overall, the Z370 delivers style, power, and speed in an affordable package.
Pros: Bold blue design, Strong overall performance, Fast boot time with included software, Anti-glare display
Cons: Below-average battery life, Undersized right Shift key, No USB 3.0 ports
