Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z380-21293DU

60% Lenovo IdeaPad Z380 13.3-inch Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Lenovo's IdeaPad Z380 is a surprisingly affordable 13-inch laptop offering in a dwindling number of traditional laptops in this segment. It may not have the same level of portability as an ultrabook but it does offer faster processing at the expense of slower storage. For those wanting a DVD drive built into the laptop, it is certainly one of the last options available at this size range.

70% Dell Inspiron 13z review
Source: CNet English
For years, an Inspiron was a bulky plastic box designed to offer competent computing at a reasonable price, with the added bonus of wide-ranging customization options, but many of the newer models have enough style to appeal beyond simply bargain hunters. With the same CPU as you find in ultrabooks that cost a lot more, the Dell Inspiron 13z is a budget laptop that holds its head up high.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
