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.
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.
Summary: i bought this laptop looking for something that would be able to do a lot for the price. when i got the laptop i started testing it out right away everything i threw at it wouldn't slow it down at all. i have plated assassins creed: brotherhood, GTA: IV, minecraft, and bioshock infinite at default settings with no lag at all and 60 fps the only time i has frame rate problems was when i tried recording gameplay using fraps which was too much for the processor to handle.
Summary: My brother really enjoys this laptop. He likes the way the home screen looks and the graphics for gaming. However, the picture appears as a grey silver color but we received a metallic purple one. The one we ordered was sold by Amazon. So Amazon, please get your customers' orders correct In the future.
Decent laptop for the reg price, great when on sale

Summary: I bought this on black friday from tiger direct, i paid 500$. For that price this is a very good laptop. 1.Performance - I use this computer primarily for internet use, media, and occasional gaming. I have had no problems when it comes to speed for regular useage. I have not played any performance intensive games on this computer yet, althought it has run mount and blade warband, TF2, and STALKER flawlessly.
Summary: Arrived in good working order, but hard drive is too slow. Replaced with Samsung 840 SSD to lower the boot time from 75 sec to 15 sec. The overall PC experience is transformed with the faster hard drive.
Summary: I am quite content with this thing. No particular issues. Great audio and display. Keyboard OK+. Silent fan during all "regular" activity. The only snag - as far as I am concerned - is how short the battery lasts. Only about 2.5 hrs. I look forward to fitting it with a solid state drive (SSD) which should improve battery as well as other performance. The prices for SSDs should quickly go down. 250 Gb would be ample space for an internal drive.
