Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z575

60% Lenovo Ideapad Z575 review
Source: Computer Active English
Most laptops come fitted with Intel processors and for good reason – they're fast and power efficient. The Ideapad Z575 is the first laptop we've seen in a while to come with an AMD processor instead. The Z575 doesn't have any USB3 ports, but it does have three USB2 ports, one of which doubles as an eSATA connector which is an alternative way of connecting fast external storage. There's plenty of internal storage too with a large 750GB internal hard disk.

Most laptops found under $600 are extremely limited in terms of their functions for graphic. The Lenovo IdeaPad Z575 breaks away from this trend by combining an AMD quad core APU with a dedicated AMD graphics processor to provide a mobile platform that is actually capable of PC gaming albeit at modest detail levels.

AMD Radeon HD 6720G2: Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 6650M and a 6620G APU graphics card (e.g. found in the AMD 3400M CPU).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

A6-3400M: Llano quad-core APU clocked at 1.4-2.3 GHz (Turbo Core) featuring an integrated Radeon 6520G (320 cores, 400MHz) graphics card.» 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.


2.4 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.
