"I actually have the P500 but my understanding is that it is the same as this Z500. This is the sleekest, lightest, most powerful, sturdiest laptop for this price I have ever purchased since I started using laptops. I was amazed at the design. I owned a Lenovo laptop in 2011 that had a beautiful design but was heavy and terribly slow for some reason. It had an i5 processor, but it was still super slow. Lenovo - you have definitely done what it takes to meet and exceed my needs and expectations for speed, load as well as design I have been looking for in a laptop. The other company I was stuck on buying just does not meet my expectations with design.
There are a few quirks and flaws with this laptop, but I have learned to deal with them so far. I'm not sure if it is the new Windows 8 or the laptop itself. I will address them in feedback for Windows 8 and on your website to see which is which. It could also be that I have not learned to fully use the new format for Windows 8.
Overall, I am definitely satisfied with the P500 that I have. If feels so solid when I pick it up. There is none of the bending and weakness of the frame that I have experienced from previous laptops. It feels as if I am picking up a slab of marble when I pick it up. I have not experienced any lag when I have multiple programs open at the same time. When I plug into a USB port, I get instant response. The only thing I wish about the USB ports is that there was at least one on the rear of the unit rather than all on the sides. But, I have learned to be flexible for that because I know all companies are not the same.
No major complaints on performance so far Lenovo. Thank you for manufacturing such a stellar innovative laptop. Unless your quality changes, I probably won't ever buy another brand again.

"I just bought Lenovo Z500 59-352523 with windows 8.There are lots of new features.For example thiny design,smart touchpad,720p webcam,one button recovery....
I ve been suprised when i took in my hand,because i didnt expect about product weight and dimension optimized like that.
There was a more reason for buy this product,Lenovo Z500 59-352523 got high performance video card,GT645M.It is usable for all new games and software.
Also there is no cooling problem,its cool decently what u expect !
I suggest that,if you want to buy this product dont think twice!You will be satisfied!

"I am 13 years old and am an aspiring producer. I had been stuck with an old refurbished desktop for quite some time and I had gotten very sick of it lagging all the time. But when I got this computer there was no such problem I can produce play minecraft on high settings and run youtube facebook twitter and soundclud all at the same time! I am very impressed with this computer and am thankful to Lenovo for making such an affordable but also reliable laptop! THANKYOU LENOVO!!!"

Really bad

"extremely bad battery life (2.5 hours average usage no games and on power saving mode) . very dim screen, low resolution and bad viewing angles. mediocre built quality. horrible flex keyboard. very heavy. software not so good. the only good thing is the laptop's performance."

The Best lappy ever

Date:April 28, 2014
"Been looking for good if not excellent laptop but i was starstruck with my Lenovo ideapad Z500...core i5 with 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD and 2 GB graphics. I can say is...outstanding! Though i found it a bit expenssive in my pocket but it's worth since i'm working as a designer. When it comes to movies, pictures and music...it is more than satisfying.
Im so thankful for the product cause it made my day all the time and until today it's still unbeatable since i bought it 2 years ago. Now, i'm upgrading it from Win8 to Win 8.1. Recommended!
