- out of my depth in this….Laptops!!
I have no idea about that particular model, but in general Lenovos are decent quality and well put together, with good support (I’m typing on one which I had to get the MB changed on, which you might think bad, but it’s the sort of thing which can happen to any – the customer service I experienced would definitely encourage me to buy another). They are (or at least used to be) one of the default brands for business – good if you’re typing a lot as they have some of the best keyboards. I’d not normally expect them to be that cheap, so if it is a good price for the spec, you could probably do far worse.Posted 4 years agosoma_richMember
Agreed Lenovo customer support is great we just bought 25 Lenovos and 2 had slight hardware issues, IBM engineer turned up the next day and fixed both small issues straight away.
I wouldn’t buy Win8 though! Not until 8.1 is available.
you could get a cheap one with a lesser Graphics card unless your doing lots of video editing?Posted 4 years ago
I am typing this on a Lenovo Z570 – looks like same case and build.Posted 4 years ago
Ours is W7, i3 and 6gb ram + 1gb graphics and it flies through stuff. Speed has never been an issue – I would think that spec would be even better.
More relevant is that it is easy to type on, seems really well built and tough, and has not missed a beat in a couple of years now.
Only downsides are weight (it is a heavy/big beast), but it rarely travels with us, it is a home use machine. The screen is a bit reflective, but not a huge issue.
I would buy another straight away if this died.cpSubscriber
For the best bargains, select scratch and dent, and then pick your spec out.
EDIT – gets updated every weekday afternoon between 2 & 3 with the latest availability. The very best spec ones move quick, and there’s a high turn over, so check back a couple of times & act quickly if you find one you want.Posted 4 years ago
I’m not computer illiterate by any stretch, just haven’t loked about for a long time!
I’ve googled, but TBH I (usually) respect the views and opinions of you lot!
Lenovo Ideapad Z580 any good?
I’ve seen this model for £429, so not a bad price really.
Only need it for ‘work stuff’, maybe the odd game, and document writing.
Oh, memory map, maybe simple picture and vid editing too etc etc too…
I’ve been getting along fine with a netbook, but that’s currently nil-by-mouth and soon to be put on the LCP..
Acer laptops look good as well, but a bit pricier..
Hopefully this is more than just a ‘what laptop’ request, as my gaming needs aren’t that high.
Any views on the Ideapad, or other suggestions?Posted 4 years ago
