Summary: Great quality and looking. this is the best laptop I had so far, much better than my previous laptop samsung series 9 ultrabook in my opinion larger screen, easy to type, maybe I was tired to deal with the problem of samsung laptop.
Summary: I upgraded from a HP Pavilion dv6500 (purchased at Best Buy) and have had the Lenovo about three months now. I have been very impressed with it. The case is light yet sturdy and I love th color. The touchpad is huge compared to my old laptop--so huge I still right-click on accident because I don't expect the buttons to be where they are. The screen is bright and the resolution is beautiful.
Summary: For those wondering what this spec actually means: Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 15.6-inch Laptop - Dark Chocolate (Intel Core i5 2.6GHz, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth, Webcam, Nvidia Graphics, Windows 8 for £429) As reported by CPU-Z: - CPU: Intel i5 3320M (Ivy Bridge) running at 2.6GHz. - RAM: 4gb of DDR3 running at a DRAM frequency of 798.1MHz (therefore 1600Mhz). - Graphics: Intel HD 4000 (Nvidia GeForce GT635M 1GB shows in device manager but not in CPU-Z).
Summary: My only disappointment with this laptop is that, finding myself needing a laptop urgently, I purchased it from a well known PC retailer and subsequently found it on Amazon for over £100 less later on. Although this was obviously my fault and not the laptop's. It was also irritating to sit through the well known PC retailer's hard-sell scare talk about needing a helpline and insurance which I declined to take up due to it being a scandalous rip off.
Summary: This review is for the i7 (i7-3632QM) 6Gb Z500 (white). During two to three weeks of looking for the right laptop, I kept coming back to the Lenovo Z500, and eventually took the decision to purchase. So far I do not regret my decision at all - to me, this is an excellent laptop. My requirements were a slim but well built laptop, with a backlit screen and a backlit keyboard, minimum 6Gb RAM, built in SD card reader, dedicated graphics card, and an aluminium keyboard...
Summary: I got this laptop today (this morning). Really good. Makes no overheating noise. Backlit keyboard is great. Good for games. Love it! Good battery life. The money is worth the specs and the laptop. Worth what i paid for!
Summary: After 3 months of usage, I now feel able to comment on this laptop. The laptop is very well made with quality picture and sound. The backlit keyboard s a good feature. It is good value for money. I have no complaints about the hardware; the i7 processor easily meets my long working days as an author. It was my first time with Windows 8 and my first encounter with touchscreen devices. Like all new software there is a long learning curve. On balance it's a good purchase.
Summary: Ok so it's been a good few years since I owned my last laptop and prior to that Vaio I had a Pico Direct Laptop..each cost me well over a thousand. This laptop, perhaps technology has moved on but is far superior. Might also be Windows 8 integration but I am chuffed to bits. Arrived with 1h35 of charge so didn't even need to plug in charger..I just checked charger worked. I know it's ill advised but I thought 1h35..should be more than enough. Anyway faults.
