I like it when it works

This was a budget purchase. My old laptop broke during the beginning of my senior year in college. Apparently I got a bad apple from the bunch, because within the first month of ownership of the z500, I had to send it back in for the laptop not wanting to boot up. They replaced the hard-drive and keyboard; I had to pay for the shipping. A month later, a similar issue occurs. I send it in again (this time on Lenovo's dollar) and they replace the motherboard. When the laptop generally sat on the desk in my room, occasionally traveling to and from school in my backpack (something one would want a laptop to be able to do well), so no extreme operating conditions. After more than a year of ownership, I'm having a similar boot issue again, though I am able to remedy it most of the time by tapping the laptop or letting the battery run down. I also installed Linux to run as a second operating system, though I have not heard of Linux causing boot issues like this. You get what you pay for.

Worst Laptop I Have Ever Used

Customer review by An anonymous customer

Abysmal in almost every way. Windows 8 is terrible enough but on this laptop it will test the patience of a saint. Noisy, hot, slow. Takes forever to start up, or restart (10+ minutes), updates literally take ALL DAY. Cannot easily access RAM or HD. Battery life is poor. Touchpad started to peel after less than 3 months despite not even being used. DRIVER_STATE_POWER_FAILURE is a message you will see a lot, followed by a drive failure. I'm sitting here watching the best feature of this machine in action: the OTR or One Touch Recovery, as it reinstalls the farce that is Windows 8. Let's face it, a machine that has that as a feature can't really bode well for reliability. I'm torn between giving this machine to charity or for the sake of another person's sanity and my own satisfaction jumping up and down on it until it is reduced to plastic dust. Avoid.

this laptop is the absolute worse when it comes to anything internet. i've had to deal with constant signal loss since day one. the wifi literally just disconnects itself, sometimes several times an hour. the only way to reconnect is to restart the entire computer which as you can imagine is a bit aggravating especially when you're watching videos or typing up a paper. and more recently, for about a week now, youtube videos wont even load at all!!!! it's not my internet connection because i have another laptop and the internet works fine on that one. and never drops the signal. this is just a bad purchase overall, save yourself the trouble and just pick another one..or you'll be stuck with this no internet having laptop, basically a virtual notebook

Good performance only

to be honest the performance is great , a great CPU and memory , BUT , the over all design of this laptop is BAD : 1- The laptop edges do heart my hand and leave lot of marks on my skin , they are very sharp . 2- The touch pad , sound it makes very disturbing plus the performance is not good , especially when you deal with click . 3- The keyboard , OMG , small enter key and small arrow keys , Lenovo restricts me to use the multimedia keys instead of function keys "f1-f12" as default , without an option to change this. My keyboard malfunctioned twice . 4- the drivers for windows 8 are rubbish with no updates , or even the updates make things worst for example . do I recommend it , am sorry to say no ....

One of the best budget laptops

One of the best budget laptops. It has really cool design, ultrabookish style with aluminium use. It performs very good for office works and even for gaming. Built in audio speakers are really cool. I really like them. Display is ordinary for budget laptops with resolution 1336x768 which is more than enough for me. It has anti glare cover which I think is very good for using it outside. Overall keyboard is very good, but seems my laptop has some problem with F letter which sometimes make noise when I press. The touchpad performance is very nice with various gestures, but it wobbles a lil bit. Overall I'm happy with my purchase.

So happy

I was considering getting a Macbook as I was an avid Apple fan until I was at the IT Fair and was caught by surprise at the specifications on this laptop. I needed a big laptop suitable for school and this met my requirements to a T. To add on, it was super affordable! I happily switched to Windows 8 and had high expectations for it and indeed, it did not let me down. It is fast, smooth, reliable and efficient. It has a good keyboard (although with no lighting) and runs faster and more smoothly than other big brands such as HP. I'm very very happy with this and my doubts towards Lenovo have vanished.

When I went to Chroma showroom, I seen almost all brand laptop. Even I seen this product also during visit to all other product and it got place in my mind. After viewing all the laptop I decided not to purchase the laptop because products are lacking some feature. But when I was coming out of the showroom this product was in my memory. It cached me and persuade my interest and finally I got it. If this product, could have i7 core 3rd gen and 8GB RAM, It could have great somehow I compromise this feature. Mine is i5 third gen and 6GB RAM. Even I am satisfied with the product.

Been looking for good if not excellent laptop but i was starstruck with my Lenovo ideapad Z500...core i5 with 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD and 2 GB graphics. I can say is...outstanding! Though i found it a bit expenssive in my pocket but it's worth since i'm working as a designer. When it comes to movies, pictures and is more than satisfying. Im so thankful for the product cause it made my day all the time and until today it's still unbeatable since i bought it 2 years ago. Now, i'm upgrading it from Win8 to Win 8.1. Recommended!
