Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500

80% Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 (59-341235) Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 is an excellent laptop to consider if you do not want to go much beyond the Rs. 50,000 price bracket. It offers very good performance and is very well put together. It just looks and feels a lot better than most of the alternatives available for that much money. The slim profile adds to that. Factor in the fairly robust gaming capabilities into the mix, and you begin to wonder what Lenovo were doing all along, when they can actually make a laptop as good as this!

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
