Lenovo squeezes an excellent keyboard and zippy Core i3 CPU into this lightweight machine, but the design and battery life could be better.

Style and great battery life are elements of a successful mainstream laptop. Apparently, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 ($750 direct) didn't get that memo. Design, one of the key differentiators among laptops for shoppers roaming through store aisles, is something that the Lenovo Z360 fails to address. Furthermore, battery life is too meager for a borderline ultraportable. Even though it has good processing power and is priced reasonably, there are much better laptops that don't cost that much more.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 is a solid all-purpose thin-and-light laptop for the masses. It offers solid Core i3 performance, a 13-inch screen, and plenty of features—including a 500GB hard drive, an onboard DVD burner, and WiMAX connectivity—for just $749. Solid performance and plenty of features make the IdeaPad Z360 an attractive 13-inch laptop. If you prefer an optical drive and are on a limited budget, it’s a safe choice.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
