Lenovo may not have updated much of the appearance of the IdeaPad Z570, but with pricing under $600 it offers some unique features. The most notable of these is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M graphics that give this system the ability to be used for casual PC gaming or benefiting applications such as Photoshop.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M: Entry level graphics card based on the new GF119 chip with a 64 Bit memory bus or on the GF108 with 128 Bit memory bus but lower clock rates. 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
