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.

Mixed review

 

Fantastic laptop. You won't get a better one for that much money. Fast. Responsive. Best keyboard I've ever used -- allowed me to type faster than any other keyboard I've used, and with fewer errors. Quad-core i7 will chew through any workload you give it

Gets a little warm. Battery life isn't spectacular (~2hr relatively low use case, 4hr with wifi shut off) but is enough to be usable away from the outlet ; What took 2 eggs off is that the motherboard/BIOS has a design flaw. When I picked it up from...

Better than first thought

 

I installed CS6 and Solid Works to this laptop and it runs without a hitch and is so sleek and smooth. Best Laptop I've had in years. I am a converted MAC user

Thicker than what I was used to, but I used to have a MacBook Air, so my paper even seems thick

Good deal

 

I bought this laptop because I needed it for work. I basically use it for correspondence and online applications. It definitely gets the job done. It's not fancy but it's reasonably fast and has been very dependable

Would not be my first choice for video or photo projects

Consumer review by:

Very happy

 

If you buy this laptop and are going to be doing anything that may be abrasive to the finish, make sure you get some sort of protection. I wish I had done so earlier. That doesn't hamper the performance though.

I purchased this laptop for college and it has been absolutely perfect so far. Granted I'm not asking it to do anything too demanding, no CAD or video editing and the like. Just writing papers and browsing the internet. It is responsive and usually...

The metal finish seems to scratch easier than I would have expected. Just sliding it in and out of my backpack has caused it to scratch away the darker finish and reveal the metal beneath. To be fair, it should probably be in a sleeve for protection
