Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500-20202

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Touch review
Source: Techradar English
Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Touch is an interesting mainstream addition to the market place. Admittedly there are better pure-gaming machines out there, but they tend to cost a good deal more than this, especially if you want real performance. This is a well-thought out system that can play the latest games with a few compromises here and there, and for the money, that's hard to scoff at.

70% Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Touch review: a well-built desktop replacement machine
Source: PC Advisor English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Touch does have some rough edges – we'd happily trade the touch-screen for full-HD screen or a fast internal drive. Even so, the Z500 Touch is a well-built desktop replacement machine that could earn its keep for entertainment at home or more demanding work in the office.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3632QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3632QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
