Great Laptop, Great Price

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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!

Just fine

  • Summary: I bought this knowing the screen was not great, because this is used as a desktop with a lovely 1080p external screen.
  • 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?

Great choice

  • Summary: I would recommend this to anyone in need of a simple jack-of-all trades laptop.
  • Pros: I bought this laptop on sale after both my desktops had broken down. It is a great machine for the price and can easily run videos and some light games like WoW, TF2, and Minecraft. The webcam works spectacularly when I do long distance calls to Europe on Skype. All and all a great simple laptop for on-the-go, and I plan to use it after I get another gaming desktop built.
  • Cons: Some of the few problems I did have was with that thing called Windows 8, while its not as bad as the cancer known as Vista it still has flaws that I just don't understand how Microsoft could allow. If your used to that handy-dandy little start button on the bottom then you're in for a shock. The only other issue that I can note is the button-less mouse pad. It can be quite easy to click when scrolling or moving the mouse. Though this problem didn't bother me much bec...

Decent laptop

Nickscream, Newegg
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Overall the flaws are forgivable for the price point. When both video chips successfully work together, games run well.
  • Pros: Decent specs for the price, looks good too. Can play most games as well as run a ps2 emulator.
  • Cons: The left CTRL key pops out sometimes and the touchpad is incorrigible. Dual video chips leads to some driver conflicts.

So far so good

  • Summary: Over all for the laptop itself I am loving everything about it besides the mic which isnt a turn off in my book. the keys are great size and spaced out just right for my liking and having a numb pad is a lovely plus. Also being that the laptop is so light that i forget its a 15.6" size screen. So Lenovo did it right with this one but i have only had this laptop for almost a month so who knows what will happen.
  • Pros: -Very nice size keyboard and numb pad layout
  • Cons: -So far i am hating that the touch pad for the mouse doesnt have a slide bar area for going on web pages to move up or down a site.

Not a bad machine

N/A, Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Summary: Not a bad machine for the price. Video editing is main focus. After reading the reviews about this machine, I still opted to purchase and give it a shot. Biggest cons being windows 8, the wifi, and the touchpad. I gave windows 8 a chance (almost a month) and then pulled the trigger and loaded windows 7. WOW what a difference! Lenovo is pretty good about always having drivers on their website and this machine was relatively easy getting into the bios for boot settings.
  • Pros: Price, dedicated video card
  • Cons: windows 8

Great low-level gaming computer

cmiles8, Newegg
25 July 2013
  • Summary: Overall if you want a computer to play some medium or low-level graphics games, this is the computer for you. Just don't expect it to run games like Crysis 3. It probably won't even run games like Assasins Creed 3 except for at very low settings.
  • Pros: I bought this computer for a friend as a low-level gaming computer. It was meant to play games like Sims 3 and Age of Empires. While Sims 3 takes a long time to load, that's just because Sims 3 ALWAYS takes a long time to load unless you have a $3000 computer. Also, Sims 3 runs at around medium-high graphics settings with decent FPS.
  • Cons: It does not run Crysis 3.

Great for its price

Phillip, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: The Lenovo Ideapad Z585 has worked without any issues. I have been able to play all of the games that I wanted to on good graphics, but not the best, but that is what you get for its price. I am able to play games with high fps without spikes of lag. The main issue I have had is that the keyboard is shrunk in order to fit in the number pad, but after owning for a month, I have already gotten mainly used to it.

Performs very well

Rhombo, Amazon
2 July 2013
  • Summary: Great power-house of a laptop. I don't do much gaming, but it can handle what few games I did throw at it. The keyboard is fantastic, yet as with many laptops, takes a bit of getting used to with respect to they layout of things. The only reasons this laptop is getting a 4/5 from me are because of the 5400rpm hard drive. It really feels like the bottleneck for the machine, which isn't too noticeable, but it would increase the speed of loading the OS and applications.
