Summary: I've had this laptop for two weeks now and now want to send it back because of the amount of problems im having with it; firstly i have tried to use skype and the laptop just tells me something is wrong with the microphone (no suggestion of how to fix this by changing any settings) tried turning it...
Summary: It's a fast laptop. But the display is very poor, low res, low contrast, the touch screen is a waste of time as it just gets annoying and makes the screen worse. The installed software (windows 8) is horrible (give me XP or win 7 anytime). It's advertised as having veriface software.
Summary: The first time I ordered this laptop, I had to return due to touch problems. The touch pad was come off from the housing and there was a gap. The second product was cosmetically ok, but i had problems with the nvidia video card. Could not recognise it.
Summary: Pros: - Backlit keyboard is a very useful feature. - Keyboard (for the most part, see the cons) is good, easy to use and easy to keep clean. - Laptop fan is very quiet. - Fast (for a bit). - Can play good games on mid to lower settings (for a bit).
Summary: I've had to come back and edit this review because some of the major problems with this laptop have become evident. Getting the wifi to properly work has been a pain and I'm still unsure as of now does it even work properly.
Into my second year with this model and hanging in ...

Summary: Into my second year with this model and hanging in there with screen locked on minimum brightness. Something has failed and to fix it is expensive and might result in the screen being broken while obtaining access to the part.
Summary: The battery is rubbish, I did not last more than 13 months and I can change that as it is inside the computer and the guarantee is just one year. Also, it overheats and blocks all the time and the keyboard has some issues.
Summary: Ich habe das Z500 mit einem 2,1 GHz i7, 16GB RAM und 1TB Hybrid-HDD im September 2013 gekauft fürs Studium. Im März 2015 gingen am TouchPad die Tasten für die Mausklicks nict mehr. Da noch Garantie auf dem Gerät war, habe ich es eingeschickt an Lenovo.
