That minor omission aside, Lenovo’s IdeaPad Z570 is tough to criticise for the money. The lack of USB 3 is the only major thing that gave us reason to pause, and when you consider that you’re getting a superb all-rounder with Blu-ray and switchable graphics for only $1329, it’s hard to be anything other than impressed.

That minor omission aside, Lenovo’s IdeaPad Z570 is tough to criticise for the money. Even now we don’t think USB 3 has penetrated the market enough to make it a must-have, and when you consider that you’re getting a superb all-rounder with Blu-ray and switchable graphics for only £650, it’s hard to be anything other than impressed.
