75% Review Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Old packaging, new content. Lenovo wants to attract users looking for the highest possible performance for as little money as possible with the new IdeaPad Z510 series . The Z510 comes with a Haswell CPU, a GeForce GPU and a matte Full HD display for about 700 Euros (~$944). Our review reveals whether the IdeaPad is only convincing on paper or also in practice.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z510-59400169

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.

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.

65% Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 review: Good performance, but poor battery life
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Lenovo Z510 gives decent performance when it come to most real life tasks. For home use, it is a good choice as the weight and the sub-par battery life do not really make it ideal to be used while on the move. For someone looking to save space by replacing their desktop with a laptop, the Lenovo Z510 is a good buy. The use of a hybrid drive makes startup times, application loading times much faster as compared to a regular hard drive.

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

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

Intel Core i5:

4200M: Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

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.

Intel Core i3:

4000M:

Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with no Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.


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.
