Summary: Bought this 16 months ago and I just lost my hard drive (and it went fast). Thankfully, I had most of it updated. But, it really should last longer than 16 months. I never travelled with it and it was not moved around much at all. I love Lenovo and will buy again, but was disappointed with this computer. I guess I got what I paid for.
Summary: Excellent laptop, I purchased a year and a half ago from a local electronics store and have been consistently impressed with the laptop's performance. Not a huge fan of Windows 8, but the laptop itself is great. Love that it has a 10-Key which seems to be missing on most laptops today. It is a great daily driver for everything from schoolwork to gaming to browsing and multitasking. Love it!
Summary: I love this laptop. It plays all my games like BF4, Assassin's Creed IV, and Saints Row IV on medium settings. I bought it for $500, and it gets performance almost comparable to Lenovo's y510p. Pros: -Large touchpad -Great graphics -Decent processor -Good keyboard -GREAT speakers -Number pad -USB 3.0 -Great price Cons: -Gets slightly hot during gaming, not even close to an overheat though.
Summary: So far, I have been very happy with this laptop. Running on Windows 8, this laptop has the fastest startup time I have ever seen! It loads in less than 5 seconds, easily. It's lightweight, and looks great. I would certainly recommned it to others.
The Lenovo Z585 is a solid performer and runs cool! Great value. FAST!!!

Summary: I am impressed so far with this AMD A10 Lenovo. It boots up faster than I can turn on my mobile mouse! When loaded up with apps, it still runs cool. Really cool... The Lenovo keyboard is friendly for larger hands like mine and with the new Windows 8 OS is much better than 7 or Vista. This computer comes with a decent app package. The Z585 comes with a brushed aluminum outer casing and keyboard platform. The durability is up there.
Summary: NOTE: I purchased my Ideapad Z585 from Best Buy NOT Amazon. I purchased it for use with a computer course that I am taking this summer. It worked fine for 2 weeks. The sound and display were great. Just two weeks after I received the thing, it died and will not power on. I was working on battery power when it ran low, I plugged it in. 20 minutes later, it powered off.
