Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 Review: A Functional Mainstream Laptop
Source: PC Perspective English
Similarly priced competitors suffer from similar issues, however. It's just a fact of the budget laptop market. Overall, the Z580 does a better job of minimizing these problems and projecting its strengths than many other budget laptops.

As a moderately priced laptop for multimedia consumption, the IdeaPad Z580 shines. The warranty coverage is merely average, however. (Lenovo backs this machine with an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty, but you can buy extended warranties at the point of sale.) Much else about it, though, stands out for the price.
