Expert Review

7 June 2013
  • 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

Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch

8 May 2013
  • 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

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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch review: Fair value but not fun

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.
