Lenovo IdeaPad Z580

  |   by NotebookReview Staff

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 is a 15.6-inch consumer laptop designed for families and students on a budget who want a notebook with a reasonably large screen. Featuring a range of Intel processors, our review unit came equipped with the Intel Core i5-3210M dual-core processor, 6GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive and a DVD burner. For $579 this is a great deal. The low 1366×768 screen resolution is acceptable at this price point (of course, we prefer something much higher).


  • Pros

    • Nice design
    • Good performance
    • Solid keyboard
    • Well priced
  • Cons

    • Low screen resolution
    • Slight fan whine

Quick Take

The Z580 represents a great value thanks to a combination of good build quality, good performance, and six hour battery life.
