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...
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
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.
Summary: I bought this laptop in October of 2012, and I will say this reguarding it. It will be the LAST Lenovo product I purchase. In terms of running another operating system such as Linux, secure boot software made it nearly impossible.
Summary: To those of you looking at buying this laptop... don't believe the specs... It states it has intel integrated graphics.... This is false... AMD APU's have HD 7*** series graphics on board. This model has either an HD 7520G or 7660G integrated gpu.
Summary: nice key board, fairly good graphics and processor speed for a laptop, but hard drive failed after only 6 weeks, thankfully amazon agreed to a replacement, otherwise it was back to lenovo and who knows how long, sadly the replacement was also faulty the number`3` key broken and a card reader failure...
Excerpt: При его достоинствах, как: проц и оператива, ну и где то видяха radeon hd 7640, игры как то слабо тянет. Покупал в августе 13 года за 23К. По тому как за ним работается, ощущение што ноут стоит не больше 15К. Мне такой ноут не понравился.
Pros: - 4 ядра 1,9ГГц - винчестер 1000Гб - оперативная память 8Гб - usb 3.0 2шт. - раздельный вход наушники\микрофон
Cons: - матрица как обычно инверсирует цвета сильно, при просмотре со сстороны - греется сильно, в играх так воздушный поток из системы охлаждения просто раскалён - у меня модель в пластиковом корпусе - звук "dolby home theater" плохой; не сильно громкий и плоский. Есть с чем сравнивать (на сони вайё р...
