Lenovo IdeaPad 500 Review


The Ideapad 500 is a solid laptop for media consumption and work, but competitors offer better performance and battery life.

Solid multitasking performance; Great keyboard; Intel RealSense camera; Powerful audio

Lenovo IdeaPad 500-15ISK Notebook Review


Inferior screen. Lenovo has put a price tag of just under 1000 Euros (~$1121) on its IdeaPad. The high price dictates the delivery of an outstanding all-rounder. However, Lenovo cannot serve with this. Once again we found the same issues as those we...

matte screen ; Full HD resolution ; fast SSD ; quiet operation ; low temperatures

dark, low-contrast, viewing angle dependent screen ; PWM flickering ; wobbly keyboard ; no maintenance hatch ; high purchase price

Lenovo ideapad 500 Review: Work And Play Wrapped In An Attractive And Affordable Package


Our Lenovo ideapad 500 review looks at a very affordable machine that can keep up with your work and still have more than enough left over for the play.

Great value. High spec and powerful for this price range.Well built and designed. Speakers, keyboard and trackpad are all well above anything in this class.

Disappointing battery life. Keyboard not backlit. Heavy.

Not bad but...


This is a fantastic computer. However, the graphics card crashes quite often and I guess it is a very common issue with this generation of Lenovo. I have an AMD card, but it crashes a lot more than the card I've had for over 7 years in the past month...
