Old packaging, new content. Lenovo wants to attract users looking for the highest possible performance for as little money as possible with the new IdeaPad Z510 series . The Z510 comes with a Haswell CPU, a GeForce GPU and a matte Full HD display for about 700 Euros (~$944). Our review reveals whether the IdeaPad is only convincing on paper or also in practice.

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.


76.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
