  • Summary: The computer is ok but I could be in the middle of something important and the settings menu comes on the screen and then it goes to the desktop. Very irritating.

Operating system conflict

Joana, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: Windows 8 is an operating system that only really works fine if it's in a touch screen device. On a regular laptop it creates constant conflict. Problematic, since it makes it keep crashing.

Not bad - not great for those who use function keys a lot

JRK, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: This is just okay. If you are a software developer like me, using the function keys a lot, then you should think twice before going for this. The function keys can be used only by depressing the Fn key and the appropriate function key. So two keys to be used simultaneously. For example, if you need to press F1, you have to depress Fn and then simultaneously press F1. Otherwise F1 has an additional function on it (mute). It mutes the speakers on the laptop!

Good specs but far from perfect

DivineBliss, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this on Amazon for £449, because the specs seemed good and it was about 100 quid cheaper than its retail price. It arrived promptly courtesy Amazon's excellent service. It was packaged well and it was evident that it is a brand new laptop. I opened the package and set up the laptop. In the looks department it is a fairly sturdy looking lappy minus the sleek curves that we see in some of the other brands.

Faulty Lenovo IdeaPad Z500

Cheryl Risk, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: The laptop was a surprise Christmas present and I only discovered recently that it had been delivered with one of the feet missing, which means my partner has to balance it with a post it pad! Unfortunately, he didn't tell me at the time as he thought it would upset me. Is it possible to have a part sent?

Pretty good, some annoying features though.

B. MCGINLEY, Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: The first thing I have to note is that after upgrading to Windows 8.1, as it ships with the older Windows 8, I pressed the Lower Brightness key (F11) and the screen went dull. It was stuck on about 20-30% brightness. I had to go to the Lenovo website and download an older video driver and install that in order to fix the problem. Not a great start. The F buttons (F1-12) have been overwritten.

Excellent apart from hard power fault. Had to return it

stephen elvidge, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: Worked well for a couple of weeks. Then developed a hard power fault. Had to return it to Amazon for a full refund. Would definitely buy another Z500 - if there were any available (all sold out - Christmas I guess). Negatives (apart from the power fault) - 1 it's heavy and 2 - Only getting 3 or hours between battery charges.
