Summary: I bought this laptop last week and I received it Monday afternoon. So far I like it and it's doing a good job. The color isn't exactly as shown in the picture, it's a little purple-y which doesn't bother me but would definitely bother someone else. The number pad on the side takes some getting used to, as it effects hand placement when typing and using the mouse. Shipping was great, very well protected.
Summary: This computer is a great product for the money. It is fast, sleek so far has been trouble-free. The layout of the keyboard is not what I am used to but it's getting easier to use as I go. This is my first Lenovo, I have used Dell pc's forever, I do wish it was a touch-screen, but that's not in my price range. If you are looking for a great pc for the money, look no further.
First one broke, but second one is working really well

Summary: A week after I started using this laptop, my keyboard stopped functioning. I called Lenovo, but they couldn't fixed it on the phone and wanted me to send it to them (and pay the shipping to do it). I considered returning it to Amazon, but read the reviews again and decided to give it another chance. I exchanged it to the new machine. It was the right decision. I've been using that second laptop for the last couple of months. My only complain is the touchpad for mouse.
Summary: I honestly love this thing. It's very fast. I opted for installing VMware Player on it to emulate Windows XP instead of just putting XP on it (I need XP for work) and in full screen mode I can barely even tell that I'm emulating Windows XP. I'm very skeptical about buying new Notebooks because so many are such garbage these days. So far this doesn't seem to be the case with this laptop. The processor feels very responsive. I don't wait very long for much to happen.
Pros: One of the Cheapest i7 notebooks I could find., Screen is beautiful, Nearly a full size keyboard (with number pad). Keyboard is snappy and responsive, it almost feels like a mechanical keyboard. It even has a nice clicky sound to it., All drivers are on a separate factory partition.
Cons: Lacks a dedicated GPU., Default Win7 Install has some Lenovo bloatware on it.
Summary: Just received this laptop, i haven't had a chance to test it out much but it looks great. Purchased on sale for 679$ so fairly good deal for an i7. It has a nice purpleish brushed aluminum surface around the keyboard and front. It is much darker than the picture thay have on here but it doesn't make it girly at all since it's very dark.
Summary: This thing is great. I was very happy with the display size, one more rung up the ladder and it wouldn't even fit in my backpack, but the 15.6" size still gives a great widescreen feel. Resolution is not my main focus (haha--->pun) but this computer has wonderful graphics. I also like the focus on boot time, that was always one of my pet peeves: this thing is FAST.

Summary: This is a VERY Cool computer! Has all the bells and whistles. Very good screen that is long and bright. Keys are soft and springy, I'm typing this review using it and the keys feel good on your fingers (those that do a lot of typing know what I mean). Numeric keyboard on the top and on the right side. Large touch pad. Built in camera on the top of the screen and the microphone is at the eight o'clock area of the keyboard. Your hand will not cover the microphone.
Summary: I've been using the Z570 laptop for a month and I think it's a truly solid, though not outstanding in any way, laptop for home and business use. I use it to watch streaming videos most of the time, but also use it to do Excel and Access work. It has some Lenovo-exclusive features that make waking up from sleep almost instantaneous. It also features a start-up optimization but so far I haven't seen much of a boost! The screen is 15.6 inches diagonally.
Summary: I'm not really a computer guy. Sure, I used computers every day--I work on them, play on them--but what happens inside a computer is a mystery to me. This "Lenovo Ideapad Z570" is actually the first new computer I have owned in about eight years. So that's my perspective writing this review. Right out of the box, I thought it looked cool. I normally use my work laptop, which is "Dell Latitude E6500," and the "Levono" looks like a sports car next to my "Dell.
