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).
- Nice design
- Good performance
- Solid keyboard
- Well priced
- Low screen resolution
- Slight fan whine
The Z580 represents a great value thanks to a combination of good build quality, good performance, and six hour battery life.
