Summary: the laptop is good, but frustrating as this is a common issue, and still is not fixed. I have a great laptop, that charges "sometimes" spending hours removing drivers, and updating software, only to have it happen again with an update makes it difficult.
Summary: Worth the money, and used for work, play, and more. Lenovo seems to make a sturdy laptop.
Pros: Runs most games I throw at it - Minecraft, Borderlands, Skyrim (not at max, but at regular settings.) Dual video cards have not had any issues thus far, and no overheating even with sustained use.
Cons: Left control key keeps popping out of its place. Battery life is average (Gaming on battery is a bad idea anyhow.)
Summary: I've had this thing for almost a year and I'm only writing a review now because it's gotten to the point where, once again, with my tax money, I'm going to be getting a new laptop. This one was a decent enough price at the time, and I guess I got what I paid for. The touchpad alone makes me want to smash it and never look back.
Pros: Cool color and outside design(but I am a girl that likes purple), fairly lightweight, holds a charge decently well although I am never far from my charger.
Cons: Worst touchpad I have ever experienced in a laptop. And I've owned a few. Specifically, the left click/right click buttons. They're constantly registering that I'm clicking something when I'm not, or they don't register clicks at all. They also like to click and drag things randomly. I hate having to use a usb mouse with my laptops because it's an extra thing to carry around, but with this one it's almost a necessity.
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.
Cons: Should have known better than to buy Lenovo. This laptop is a piece of garbage. It's out of stock and discontinued for a reason. The battery won't charge after very little use. ( Maybe 10 hours if that ) Says "Plugged in Not Charging" , if you pull the power cord, it goes off imminently . Won't connect to wifi , All other devices in the house connect just fine, but this paper weight will never connect. Have to plug it in via Ethernet cord. What a waste of money
