Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 review

 

A decent entry level laptop, but there's better available at this price

The IdeaPad Z575 is very keenly priced at £399, and except for a mediocre battery life there's little wrong with it. However, right now you're better off stretching your budget a little and buying the excellent

Wonderful Laptop Just What I Paid For

 

For me I left it hooked up to my tv on and running 24/7 and it never hickup or got hot or anything. All it had was a 14 dollar cooler pad from w@lmart (why is that an inappropriate word?) under it and i never had any problems out of it. You might want...

A wonderful laptop. Bought it late 2012 still going strong with everything i can throw at it hooked up to my 42 inch tv via hdmi at 1080p turn shadows off on the games where its a little to slow and boom your back to playing. Who uses shadows anyway...

Waste of Money

 

If this is how the computers are being built by Lenovo, then I will highly discourage people/friends from purchasing them. A year of use and having it turn into an awkward useless paperweight is not my idea of a good product.

Good price, dedicated gfx card

I purchased this laptop in July of 2012. I saw the reviews and thought this would be a good choice since I really did not want anything too expensive and flashy. I loved the fact that it had its own dedicate gfx for gaming, which I do 3-4 hours per...

Sad..

 

I'm disappointed, I have tried everything. I even disabled the integrated and tried to force it to run the dedicated. ----- Other then that, there was some bloat ware. (most of lenovo background PROGRAMS that nearly impossible to stop)

Great speakers, nice build, amazing keyboard

Dedicated GPU almost always doesn't work. No matter the game, (saints row, minecraft) it doesn't run. Giving me a complete awful experience. The only time it will run is in UDK. I bought this laptop for the GPU - which doesn't work. And the CPU isn't...

good pc

 

Pretty smooth, i bought this just for gaming, runs games pretty well. Warcraft-med settings:30-40FPS, SWTOR-med settings:50-60 fps, guild wars 2 med settings:25-30fps. Nice keyboard, handles the bashing quite well. Overall this was a great buy, no...

Slow hard drive, bloatware, headphone/mic inputs on the right side to close to a USB port

Nice Laptop

 

My old desktop broke and I needed a new computer for school. I decided to just go with a laptop for convenience and am very satisfied with what I got.

Fast, reliable, and cheap

A travesty of Customer Service

 

I've been on hold with this company for over an hour now in an attempt to return this unit. Don't waste your time.

Apparently great features for the cost

The most terrible customer service experience I have ever had. I purchased a refurb from the Lenovo outlet. I suggest nobody else ever do this ever. The first unit had intense graphical and heat issues and I sent it in, on my own dime, for repair....
