  • 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.

Good for 11 months, now unusable.

Toby Sullivan, Amazon
1 February 2015
  • Summary: It was a good laptop for almost a year; great keyboard, fast enough for everything realistic, a hard drive I'd never fill, decent screen. However, about 11 months in it started freezing. It wasn't that frequent so I didn't think anything of it. But it began freezing more and more often.

Good specs but far from perfect

DivineBliss, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

Excellent apart from hard power fault. Had to return it

stephen elvidge, Amazon

  • 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).

Great laptop however do research before buying as there are some minor faults

Sanjay, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: This laptop looks great, the touch screen and touch pad enhance the Windows 8 experience, generally a good laptop overall. However it is not as thin as a chromebook/ultrabook and it is quite heavy.
