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.)

Lenovo IdeaPad Z580


The Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 has a lot to offer, even compared to the best new laptops. The memory and the excellent performance features are a few of the advantages to using this computing device. It does have a short battery life and larger dimensions,...

You have up to 8GB of RAM and 750GB of hard drive space on this laptop

This laptop offers a measly five hours of battery life

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 offers a variety of features but needs a few upgrades before it can be a top laptop computer.

Great Deal!


I'm new with computers. This is my first laptop and I have had it for over a year. Although the track pad is terrible using a mouse is a great replacement. The battery life is a little short but smart use of the battery saving options can keep it...

From my personal experience, reliable ; Great price for a overall decent computer

Track pad is garbage ; Battery life isn't as long as I would prefer
