Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z40-59422614

With great power… comes great compromise? The Z40 is most certainly among the most affordable machines to combine a Core i5 CPU, a discrete GPU, and good battery life into a single package. Surely you’re asking yourself: what’s the catch?
50% Avoid this budget laptop no matter the cost

It's tough to recommend the Lenovo Z40 in any case, that's pretty much the long and short of it. There are plenty of better options out there. Even with its bigger price tag, I highly recommend the Acer Aspire V7 for a 14-inch laptop, if you can still find it. This model splits the difference between gaming and affordable laptops beautifully with a gorgeous screen and better performance than the Z40 overall.

The Lenovo Z40 is a competent desktop-replacement laptop, and provides decent value for the money. But for just a bit more you'll get a touch-screen laptop with a lot more battery life in the Acer Aspire M5-583P-6637. The Lenovo Flex 2 (15-inch) is still our top pick for entry-level desktop-replacement laptops thanks to its plentiful multimedia features, touch screen, benchmark performance, and its innovative hinge.

The IdeaPad Z40 performed well enough in our review to earn it our recommendation. Its healthy list of positives includes an attractive design, good keyboard and touchpad, ample performance for everyday tasks and its six plus hour battery life. Overall the IdeaPad Z40 represents a solid value at about $600. Our review model with the Core i5 processor, 6GB of RAM and 500GB drive is ideal as a home or college computer.

Thanks mainly to its excellent keyboard, the Lenovo Z40 is worth a look by budget shoppers, but for the most part, it left us feeling cold. The display, while bright and vivid, suffers from very narrow vertical viewing angles and lacks touch sensitivity. The speakers pump out plenty of sound, but it isn't very good sound. And the battery is uncompetitive.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.066 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.
