Just keeps dying

Dan P., Newegg
2 January 2016
  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend this model to anyone.
  • Pros: Reasonable performance, ok battery life. Customer service did their best.
  • Cons: Bought this (Ideapad Z585) for my son to use in his CAD class and it died after one semester, so I sent to to Lenovo and they fixed it, then it died again about 30 days later. Again they fixed it again. By this time I had built my son a desk top system for his class, so I took it over even though...

Hard Drive issues

David A., Newegg
2 December 2015
  • Summary: Barring the hard drive failure, the computer has served its purpose well, though it may be overkill if you are just using it casually. If you want to play some games as well, it will get the job done. It should, for this price.
  • Pros: Runs fast, more than fast enough for a basic user. Lots of memory and handles every task with ease. Can even play some games well.
  • Cons: A fair bit expensive for the stuff it offers. After 1 year, the hard drive failed in magnificent fashion. After doing recovery on it by plugging it into my desktop, only 500 gigs are usable. The computer completely failed to boot until the recovery was performed, which was not something a casual ...

Great until it wasn't

  • 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.

Great Laptop, Great Price

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • 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.

DO NOT BUY

Joseph C., Newegg
12 May 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: price storage
  • Cons: "Plugged in not charging" issue laptop that doesn't charge

Great laptop, great price

ggrrqq, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • 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.

great laptop

andrew l., Newegg
13 February 2014
  • Pros: It had everything I was looking for to replace my old Vaio. I started going back to school and needed something for school and moderate gaming, and this is perfect for that.
  • Cons: None that I can find.

Just fine

Carlo V., Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this knowing the screen was not great, because this is used as a desktop with a lovely 1080p external screen. Speaking of which, when it updated itself to 8.1, the graphics driver broke and got stuck in overscan-compensation mode, which shouldn't even exist anymore since nobody uses CRT's.
  • Pros: It works. The build quality is nice.
  • Cons: The screen is TN 1366x768 nonsense. Why does this still exist in this day and age? Windows 8 is really irritating to deal with. It'd be great if it wasn't tied to Windows; the tablet side would be alright standing alone.
