Lenovo Z570 15.6 inch Laptop – Gunmetal

2 July 2012

Lenovo might be based in China but it still takes pride of delivering computers based on IBM models. IBM produced some of the best computers in the market and the same can certainly be said about Lenovo. The Z series by Lenovo is their mainstream laptop which is certainly worth looking at, and the one that we are talking about right now is the Lenovo Z570 which is a 15.6 inch laptop.

As it is a 15.6 inch laptop, you can expect a lot of good things from it. For example you can certainly use it to watch your favourite movies comfortably with its bigger screen. In addition to that, you would have a larger screen estate which people that have difficulty reading small letters would definitely appreciate having.

Inside the Lenovo Z570 is an Intel Core i5 2450M processor which clocks at a speed of 2.5GHz. With this being said and done, you are getting a Sandy Bridge processor which is still fast but not as good as the Ivy Bridge processors that has recently been released by Intel. Nevertheless, the processor is definitely fast enough for most tasks.

In addition to that, you are given an 8GB RAM which is the maximum that the laptop can handle. Most often than not, you won’t even use that much memory but expect to open a lot of applications simultaneously without clogging the computer up. There isn’t much to do about the memory though so you’re better off leaving it this way. Storage space on the Lenovo Ideapad Z570 is a whopping 750GB which is certainly sufficient for most people.

Lenovo has been kind enough to provide the Z570 with their RapidBoot technology. This means that you will start your computer much faster as compared with other laptops. In addition to that, you are also getting SRS Premium Surround Sound and features like OneKey Theatre II for improved audio-visual experience. Another good feature that they have is the Veriface facial recognition unlock which certainly works well in most cases.

The Ideapad Z570 is rather cool with their Breathable Keyboard technology. It allows the air intake to be taken through the spaces in between the keyboard keys. Battery life on the other hand is at a respectable four to five hours under conservative usage.

As far as the usage is concerned, this laptop is for those that are using their laptops for lightweight tasks such as watching movies or doing office work. However, as it uses only an integrated graphics card, it won’t work well for any type of video editing software. Nevertheless, its price tag of just £649.99 which makes it great for students or those that are looking for a budget computer.
