Summary: Pros. - The Discrete graphics card is good value for the price. It will play 3-4 year old games without any issue. - 1080p video works is stutter free. - The touch pad is multi-touch .This lets you scroll pages by dragging two fingers down the pad making browsing the web easier.
Summary: This is a great product and it is probably one of the best laptops for the price, it can handle almost anything you can throw at it. I see loads of people complaining about Windows 8, I would have agreed until I got this laptop.
Summary: Got this laptop for a replacement of our DELL. Cant complain about the hardware......does what it says. One little bug bear is the poor quality resolution.....bit grainy. Software however is........AWFUL!! I hate Windows 8 and with the upgrade it has made my computer slow.
Summary: Had to return a Z500 to Amazon 2 months back for a full refund after serious power failure. This is my 2nd Z500. I also nearly returned this one after the touchpad kept going dead. But it's only doing that occassionally.
Solid laptop for the price, some issues at the start

Summary: This is a good laptop for its price range. Like others have said, some things are less than ideal like the slightly squishy keyboard, not very responsive track pad and relatively low resolution (1366x768). Also, you can't remove the battery.
