Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z565

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Z565 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English

In terms of features, it is hard to find a better overall value than the Lenovo IdeaPad Z565. Priced at $650, the system comes with a larger 500GB hard drive and a dedicated graphics processor. Performance isn't that far off from Intel based laptops in the same price range and the keyboard is one of the best. The design of the system is somewhat dated looking and the battery life falls well short of the claims from Lenovo.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

 

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


68%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
