"The ideapad Z470 is not a reliable laptop... I got one and found over-heating problem due to the excessive functioning of CPU and RAM... So I had a replacement and the new was the exact replicate of the old one with the same problem
The laptop is not recommended !!"

im inlove with it

Date:November 25, 2013
Pros: Processor, Memory, Storage
Cons: Battery
"i've been using it for 9 months now and its still good as new.. i use it to play games such as Dota 2 and its amazing.. would recommend this to girls who wants stylish kind of lappy.. it may overheat in long hours of usage and may automatically shutdown so my advice for the users is to remove the battery when using it too long and just plug the charger.. :)"

Broken before a year

Date:September 23, 2013
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Weight, Processor, Support, Software compatibility, Memory, Video card, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Storage, Display resolution, Display performance
Cons: Warranty, Support, Battery, Bluetooth, Security Features, Included Software, Build Quality, Durability, casing
"Overall the performance really good. I played some games like COD, Battlefield, The Sims etc works perfectly. But later after 11 months brought it, the casing is broken. Everytime i open the LCD, i need to be super extra careful because its getting worst everytime i open & close the lid. REALLY POOR! The case from the plastic is really bad idea. Some parts also broken without any reasonable reasons."

I notice some unusual noise near the fan

Date:July 16, 2013
"Just bought my ideapad z47- laptop 5 days ago, and I notice some unusual noise near the fan.It sounds like scratching or something but its not that loud. I don't know, is it somehow related to updating my chipset drivers? Because I updated my chipset drivers recently but I already rolled it back to the last previous driver since Im encountering this unusual noise. Do you guys have any idea? Is it the fan or hard disk? Is it only a dust in the fan or an existing issue? Is my laptop ok? Thanks guys."

Serious Performance issues

Date:November 1, 2012
Cons: Wireless card, Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Display performance, lousy performance
"Pl. suggest performance improvement tips as such i bought z470 lenova i7 core with 8gb ram and 750 gb hdd..with all this high end tech specs..i have serious problems with
>> launching s/w like MS Word or Excel or any software for that matter..the mouse goes into the spinning mode of launching..which is ridiculous like when i launch the windows explorer..the green highlight bar moves like a snail on the top bar..
>> Sleep mode - when the laptop goes into sleep or when the laptop is idle for sometime it goes into auto sleep and when i on it or revive it then it takes not less than 1-2 mins sometimes 3-4 mins to enable me to work on it..
any tips or changes in the o/s level or anything pl. publish your thoughts..it will helpful..
BTW- when i bought this in Singapore the machine did not even boot up till 5-8 mins and they agreed to exchange the laptop for a new z470 within 1 day..bought at Harvey Norman Funan center singapore..
Agreed most of you have given a good review but i am one unfortunate guy with a lousy piece and its frustrating that with such high end specs i cant launch few applications with good performance..
appreciate your tips and points to improve the performance.. Cheers (::"
