Review Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 Notebook

 

13.3 inch All-Rounder. Lenovo reinforces its z Series with a representative in the 13 inch division with the Z360. The IdeaPad Z360 is small and light enough to be taken along everywhere with a weight of a bit over two kilos. Find out if it's really...

Nice, elegant design, Pleasant chiclet keyboard, Good workmanship, Battery life, Value for money ratio, Typing and working on the 13.3 inch notebook was a very pleasant experience

Interface placement too concentrated on the left, Display brightness, A stronger graphics card. The performance difference to currently installed GPUs is too slight to make a significant difference when switching to the "stronger" GPU

Lenovo LaVie Z 360 Review

 

Super lightweight body; Class-leading performance ; Smooth, sturdy hinge

Awkward keyboard layout with no backlighting; Poor audio quality; Expensive; Dim display

The LaVie Z 360 reaches new heights for 2-in-1 lightness and performance, but is held back by a confusing keyboard, dim screen and lackluster battery life.

Lenovo LaVie Z 360 review:

 

While the Lenovo LaVie Z is an impressive clamshell laptop with an Intel Core i7 processor that weighs under two pounds, you might be even more impressed with the LaVie Z 360, its touchscreen hybrid cousin.

This 13-inch touchscreen hybrid weighs just a hair over two pounds and includes a powerful high-end processor.

The keyboard is poorly laid out, and this model is heavier and more expensive than the non-touch version. The screen only autorotates in tablet mode.

The Lenovo LaVie Z is an impressive engineering feat, but unless you need the touch screen and 360-degree hinge, stick with the less-expensive, lighter, non-touch model.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 Review

 

Compact and lightweight, Lenovo's IdeaPad Z360 offers plenty for mobile users to like. It has the performance to tackle everyday business and home computing tasks without breaking a sweat. The notebook also boasts a superbly comfortable keyboard and...

Lenovo Ideapad Z360

 

The 13.3-inch widescreen is equal in size to the MacBook and Toshiba R705-P35, and their viewing angles and brightness levels are very similar. A 14-inch widescreen, like the one found in the Asus U45Jc-A1 and HP dm4-1160us, is more...

Spacious 500GB hard drive. WiDi and WiMax equipped. Excellent keyboard and navigating experience

3GB of RAM (every other laptop has 4GB). Lackluster battery life. Dated look. No other color options

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 has a great user experience and some nifty wireless features, but it's neither good-looking nor battery efficient enough to be worth parting with your hard earned money.

Lenovo LaVie Z 360 Review: A Lightweight Laptop For Those On The Go

 

Upon receiving this Notebook from Lenovo, I thought to myself “eh, another laptop. Not much different from what I've used before.” Well, I was wrong. This Notebook is worth speaking of highly. I can see why Lenovo has won the CES…

I know I’ve already stated it before, but Lenovo definitely has a reason why they won the CES Best of 2015 award. The build, the specs, a gorgeous screen, and the “light as a feather” moment when holding it. This is a laptop that I would use until it...

Lenovo LaVie Z 360 Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo introduces the first convertible that's genuinely light enough (2.04 pounds) to work as a tablet. But the keyboard sabotages it as a laptop, and it lacks the in-between stand and tent modes of Lenovo's Yoga models.

Unbelievably light ; Good performance and battery life ; Usable as a dedicated tablet

Cumbersome keyboard layout ; No keyboard backlighting ; Noisy touch pad

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 Review and Ratings

 

Solid performance and plenty of features make the IdeaPad Z360 an attractive 13-inch laptop. If you prefer an optical drive and are on a limited budget, it's a safe choice.

Strong performance for the price ; Bright, sharp screen ; Good audio quality ; Excellent keyboard ; Built-in WiMAX ; Low price

Low 3D performance ; Middle-of-the-road styling ; No dedicated multimedia keys

Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 Disassembly

 

We have a review on Lenovo IdeaPad Z360, now we disassembly the Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 for those who are interested in it.

Third step, we separate the shell with the host board. We need to remove heat pipes and cooling fan over the motherboard, so we can see the Intel Core series processors. And we completely disassembled this Lenovo IdeaPad Z360.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 Review

 

Lenovo IdeaPad Z series has introduced 13-inch, 14 inch and 15-inch products, and 13-inch products gradually fire up. Summing up, with the notebook improvements in technology, the high-performance processor and graphics card in smaller laptop become...

Plain, simple shell design and the carefully crafted details impress us. We also saw the ThinkPad design elements on Z360- chiclet-style keyboard. So Lenovo IdeaPad Z36 is a portable, simple, easy to use laptop.
