Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z575
Source: Computer Active
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.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
