Review Lenovo IdeaPad Z585 Notebook


Budget all-rounder. Lenovo sends its 15-inch notebook off to the race, this time with the AMD Vision processor and dual GPU. The AMD-only combination seems quite unique, since most competitors rely either on Intel and Nvidia or Intel and AMD.

Easy upgrade, Performance of the hardware, Lots of storage space (HDD), Good stereo speakers, Good touchpad, The good performance of the dual GPU and the stylish case

Average display, Keyboard layout slightly crammed, Mediocre battery life, More space for the keyboard and a matte display for outdoor activities

Lenovo Ideapad Z585 review


We appreciated the gaming power and excellent keyboard of this laptop, but competition is stiff at this price

Although we're not fans of the Z585's touchpad and we expect our laptops to have Gigabit Ethernet nowadays, these drawbacks certainly aren't enough to put us off this laptop. It's not very sleek, but it's still a capable little notebook with enough...

Very good value


I am not disappointed at all.

The unit I received has no default, the built and finish are great. I had to adjust the color settings because at first the overal display was on the 'bleuish' side. I had to also play a lot with the settings of the pointing device, I couldn't stand...

I am not sure that this is my best type of keyboard: I have another laptop (diff. brand) and I think I prefer this other one for typing - but don't get me wrong this is a quality keyboard, it is just my preference ; I play games yes, but I am not a die...

Totally capable as is.


Keyboard is really loud. If that's not your thing, it can probably get really annoying, though it doesn't bother me at all. - Arrow keys are kinda squished in with the rest of the keyboard, but they are marked with raised edges, so they shouldn't be...

Extremely fast ; Fantastic picture quality ; Battery life of 3-4 hours on balanced power plan, upwards of 5 on power saver ; Runs most games with no problems ; Price tag way below what you'd expect for this kind of tech ; Light weight, easily portable...

Touchpad is nigh-unusable ; Speaker quality is average at best ; No number lock indicator, CAPS lock indicator is on the front of the laptop in a hard-to-see place ; Not a con for the machine itself, but I just couldn't cope with Windows 8. However,...

Satisfied customer


Overall I'm pretty pleased with my purchase. I received my Laptop in early February 2013 and so far have had zero issues with the hardware. Not to mention for the price I got alot of bang for my buck.

Very fast and powerful when it comes to games ; Insane memory size, I'm not sure how I'll ever fill 1Tb ; Metal casing is great, aesthetically pleasing and easy to clean ; Sound is incredible and easily adjusted with specialized volume keys and a mute...

Windows 8 is a bit of a pain, however the inconvenience can be greatly reduced by downloading and installing windows classic shell to bring back the windows 7 style desktop ; The keyboard's layout is a tad awkward, the right shift key is too small and...

What a beast!


This computer, which was +$100 from other stores, was a great buy. Powerful and made if quality materials, this computer surpassed this technician's expectations! Great for entry level gaming or CG work!

I went through two of these laptops in less than a week, both with the same problem. Overheating during minimal stress. There is no way that the gpu should be at 80+ degrees sitting on the desktop, hitting 115-122 during Tropico3, not an overly intense...

My wife loves this Laptop


She needed something that could play games well that was within our budget. She currently is running the Sims 3 with all the expansions and has not had any lag with the graphics. Seems a little flimsy and does not have an SD slot, but as long as she's...

Cheap gaming laptop


I bought this for some gaming and so far it's worked really well. I don't own Crysis so can't give you that as a benchmark.Pros: Best speakers on a laptop I have ever heard. Get 60 fps in D3 and League. Does not get really hot. Has settings for the fan...
