Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 Review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z series is a rung higher than the Essential series. The latter features entry-level hardware that is ideal for those who need a basic laptop for home or office for a low budget. The IdeaPad Z series packs more powerful processor,...

At Rs. 64,990 (end user price), the Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 might come across as expensive. But the quad-core Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive and Blu-ray combo drive quite justify the heavy price tag. If Lenovo would have included a more...

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 Notebook

 

Budgetainer. The best way to describe the new Lenovo IdeaPad Z580

Big range of models; Easy to expand; Current wireless technologies; Performance of components; Much storage (HDD); Good stereo speakers; Acceptable battery life

Interface arrangement; No Gigabit Ethernet on board; Only 12 Months warranty; Keyboard layout pushed slightly; Cheaper 15.6-inch screen; Temperature development under load

While there were positive aspects of the notebook, there were also many negative traits. This resulted in a score of only 80 percent. For 699 Euro (~$875), the IdeaPad Z580 offers a solid notebook for a less-than-demanding consumer. We consider this...

Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 (215127U)

 

Finding the best all-around notebook for home, school, and light business use—you know, a machine that displays photos, plays music and videos, and runs mainstream office applications well—can be daunting. There's just so many of them, and they vary so...

Attractive price for the hardware ; Strong performance ; Impressive Dolby sound ; Removable battery

Low resolution for its screen size ; Insufficient graphics processing for gaming

This sleek, modern-looking laptop has many valuable features, including a latest-gen Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, and it performs well. It's a solid pick for students and business buyers on a budget. (Don't run resource-intensive games on it, though.)
