From its 8GB of RAM to its 750GB hard drive, the 15.6-inch Lenovo IdeaPad Z570-10249ZU packs features you'd never expect to find in a $700 laptop.

Solid performance. Comfy keyboard. WiDi.

No USB 3.0 port. WiDi viewing requires purchase of $100 receiver.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z570: Style Comes Cheap

 

Lenovo's new IdeaPad Z570 is a notebook that falls in the lower price bracket. It's a segment that is crowded with laptops from pretty much every manufacturer out there. System configurations are also pretty identical and choosing one can be confusing.
