Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch Review

thinkdigit.com
16 August 2013
  • Summary: The new IdeaPad Z400 Touch gets the expected upgrade - the touchscreen. The machine has been given an uncanny resemblance to the IdeaPad U-series ultrabooks. The performance is good, and the fairly powerful graphics can handle quite a bit of the fun stuff. However, all this excitement is tempered by the poor battery life. For around this price point, the HP Pavilion m4-1003tx seems to be the better deal.
  • Pros: Good performance, Fairly powerful graphics, Comfortable keyboard, Universally acceptable design
  • Cons: Battery life is disappointing, Display has poor contrast, Main rival offers more RAM

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, it's not that the Z400 Touch is a bad deal; it's just not a dazzling one. It goes back to what we said about workhorses versus thoroughbreds and plain vanilla versus fancy sprinkles: If you like the looks of the Lenovo or have had good experience with the company's service, the Z400 may be just the kind of solid performer you're seeking.
  • Pros: Decent performance and battery life, Nice touch screen, Comfortable keyboard
  • Cons: No lightweight at 5.3 pounds, Vertical viewing angles are poor, No upgradeability options

  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch is a competent but uninspiring laptop-- it happens, even to the brightest of manufacturers. And right now, Lenovo is on top of their game with growing PC sales while other manufacturers are faltering. Still, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch strikes us as a solid but unmemorable 14" mainstream notebook. Yes, it has a touchscreen and a backlit keyboard, but the rest of the features are ho-hum.
  • Pros: Full Core mobile CPUs rather than ULV, touch screen, backlit keyboard, optical drive.
  • Cons: Plasticky, display uninspiring, slow HDD.

600 Bucks, and Worth Every Penny

Wired
1 May 2013
  • Excerpt: While jaded tech writers and reviewers have become accustomed to seeing $1,000-plus price tags on laptops, the reality is that the vast majority of the rest of the world’s buyers aren’t ready to pay such lofty prices. For years, the average selling price of a Windows laptop has hovered around a mere $500, according to NPD Group , a number that is unlikely to move significantly.
  • Pros: A price tag is worth 1,000 words, or at least 600 words. Decent styling considering the plastic build. God, it’s so cheap.
  • Cons: Too many to list: Dim screen, rough build quality, lousy keyboard and clickpad, beastly heavy, insufficient battery life…

Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch: Affordable, Touch-Enabled

HotHardware
15 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The awkward days of Window 8 laptops without touchscreens aren’t behind us just yet, but the end is in sight. It’s easy enough to resist touching the Start screen on a desktop PC, but when a laptop display is inches from your fingers, if you're anything like us, your instinct is to reach out and touch it. Thankfully, affordable touch-enabled laptops have begun to hit store shelves, like Lenovo's new IdeaPad Z400 Touch .
  • Pros: Bright, responsive touch screen, Performance for everyday tasks, Stylish, sturdy chassis, Comfortable keyboard
  • Cons: Battery life isn't great, Sub-par gaming performance, One USB 3.0 port, only 3 total USB ports

LAPTOP Magazine
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Though the average laptop price hovers around $500, most touch-screen systems cost quite a bit more. At just $599, Lenovo's 14-inch IdeaPad Z400 Touch provides a solid Windows 8 experience, complete with a 10-finger touch display, strong mainstream performance and a large 1TB hard drive. However, to get these features at this price, you'll have to live with some compromises. Is the Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 a good buy?
  • Pros: Good performance for the price, Responsive touch screen, Large hard drive, Webcam captures bright footage
  • Cons: Heavy, Dull screen, Short battery life, Keyboard flexes

Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch review: Fair value but not fun

CNET
26 April 2013
  • Summary: The budget-friendly Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch is a bulky, heavy commodity touch-screen laptop that doesn’t stand out from the pack.
  • Pros: Attractively priced for a touch-enabled laptop with a large hard drive, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch doesn’t lack any ports.
  • Cons: Thick, old-fashioned design; surprisingly heavy, unimpressive keyboard and touch pad.

Recenze: Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 touch - čtyřjádrový výkon ukrytý ve 14“

NOTEBOOK.cz
4 July 2013
  • Summary: 14“ Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch je univerzálním multimediálním notebookem s dobrým výpočetním výkonem a dobrou mobilitou. Cílovou skupinou by mohli být uživatelé, kterým nestačí dnes tak rozšířená úsporná dvoujádra, neboť občas potřebují na cestách střihnout video, něco spočítat nebo renderovat 3D scény. Výhodou je, že v tomto případě není výkonný procesor vykoupen nízkou výdrží baterie.
  • Pros: výkon čtyřjádrového procesoru, dobrá výdrž na baterie
  • Cons: nízká kvalita zobrazení interního displeje
