Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z510-59400169

60% Lenovo Z510, a 15.6"
Source: Digital Versus English
The Lenovo Z510 is a 15.6" laptop designed principally with multimedia in mind. The Z510 partly achieved what it set out to do: it's well-finished, powerful and offers good audio. Unfortunately, though, Lenovo put no real effort into the screen or graphics card, and this brought the multimedia laptop's final score crashing down.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo IdeaPad is a practical gadget that seems to encompass all the basic user needs, including a favorite feature of many users these days, a 15.6 inch screen. Although not as slim as its other notebook contemporaries, the ThinkPad, at a thickness of 1 inch (2.54 cm) is still relatively portable and weighs a moderate 2.2 kg. This may be considered heavy by some, but it is not as cumbersome as say, certain gaming notebooks. The hardware includes an Intel Core i7-4702HQ which clocks at up to 2.4 GHz, a 1 TB SATA HDD and 4 GB of RAM. All these features will no doubt make data processing and entertainment a breeze.

Additionally, there is an NVidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card installed. As an added and unique bonus, the IdeaPad features an optional voice control command that allows users to access simple commands, and dictate type e-mails and other documents. This feature is extremely useful for disabled users as well as for those who need work done rapidly. Installed as user OS is a Windows 8 program optimized with a touchpad that is sensitive and features rotating, scrolling and zooming functions. The notebook also comes with an AccuType keyboard with a backlight which allows typing in low light and JBL designed stereo speakers for a clear and immersive audio experience.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.  


4702MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.2 kg:

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