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.

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.
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.

In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
