Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Review

With the IdeaPad Z500, Lenovo seems to build a successful multimedia notebook. It is equipped with reasonably capable, energy-efficient hardware and at 30mm thick; the entire design looks sufficiently slim. Unfortunately, for some users, their impression on the laptop may suffer due to a number of flaws, which can be rather annoying after we add everything up.

As an example, the low-resolution HD display has highly reflective surface and poor viewing angles. People, who habitually use a laptop for web browsing and productivity tasks, should get models with matte display instead. The relatively weak color representation may make objects on the screen look a little bit bland.

Other things to criticize are loud DVD burner operation, high heat emission, non-removable battery, non-existing upgrade options, keyboard with spongy typing experience and the absence of Gigabit LAN.

Surely at about $1050 (Approx. £676), potential buyers can get better alternatives out there. Hardware specs of Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 include 15.6” HD display, Intel Core 3632QM quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB 5400rpm HDD and Nvidia GeForce GT 645M GPU.
