Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z460

If you want a stylish laptop for movies, music and daily chores (not gaming), at merely Rs 34,481, this laptop is definitely recommended. However, for serious multimedia (especially gaming), it’s a good idea to shell out a bit more and get a laptop with a discrete GPU (IdeaPad Z560 for 36K, with an Nvidia GeForce GT 310 GPU). If you’re still confused, click here, to ‘narrow down your search’.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z460 sells for a price of Rs. 34,999. For that price, you definitely get a trendy, smart-looking laptop with decent performance, excellent keyboard and touchpad, and great feature set and installed software. If only anything, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z460 comes with lesser RAM compared to some other laptops in our Top 5 Budget Laptops list. But if you want a decent laptop under Rs. 30,000, the Compaq Presario CQ42 is still a very good choice. In our list, the Compaq Presario CQ42-115TU manages top spot over the IdeaPad Z460 purely on price alone. But if you're willing to spend up to Rs. 35,000 for a home laptop, think beyond the Dell Inspiron 15R or the Acer Aspire 5740, and take a serious look at the Lenovo IdeaPad Z460. We strongly recommend it.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145: The 5145 is a renamed Mobility Radeon HD 4570 with slightly higher clock rates. Therefore it has no DirectX 11 support and a performance between the 4570 and 5470.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
