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.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» 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.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
